    In or out?

    Whether it be shirt alone, shirt+tie, or with a suit

    not the best example, but its kind of hard to find pictures of...this is just to help you picture what im talking about

    I think theyre sweet, but I've never been able to find any decent ones anywhere.

    J Crew has the ones with the white collar but not the cuffs.

    If you're not careful I think they can look incredibly douchebaggy and reminiscent of gordon gecko

    look through a GQ, you'll see several succesful uses of the shirt.

    i love them.

    I think it looks good on slim people, on fat or broly guys, makes you look like an asshole

    :ugh: It's been around since the 1920s. Like any look, you have to do it right, but that doesn't mean its not classic


    Must - MUST - be done with a suit though, otherwise you look like a fuck

    Not my taste, but it looks like you might be able to pull off a very business-casual like look off with it... instead of going the whole nine yards with a suit and tie...

    then again... my fasion taste is :barf:

    Got that right :mamoru2:

    People in Brisbane try to rock these shirts without a jacket/tie, mostly due to climate, but fail miserably and look like fucknuts. You can't take very formal stuff and try to do 'business casual' (PS I hate the idea of business casual)

    Its like Carson Kressley thinking you can do a polo shirt tucked into cinos under a tuxedo jacket with a bold belt choice, maybe even with some plimsoll shoes

    Time and place, mix the right stuff with the right stuff, etc etc

    God damn, the only word I understand in that is "like"

    I bet you $5 that it can be done casually.

    Well, in that first picture, I almost consider that a casual... since it's jeans and a loose tie :/
