    What do u guys think about popped coolars. I pop my collar when im wearing a polo made of heavier cotton, or with rugbys and long-sleeve polos. When do you guys pop collars, if ever?

    I dont like the way popped dress shirt collars look, also i dont pop tighter polo shirts.

    It's a trend, but I think it can look cute :dunno:

    Some people find it really annoying

    Some people hate it, I don't understand why. I don't do it with regular shirts, but I do it sometimes with coats.

    How long ago did this become trendy? I remember Usher singing about it in late 2000/early 2001, but I didn't really see anyone doing it until about a year ago or so. Personally, I think it looks weird. :ugh:

    It was maybe alright when not everyone was doing it, but now it just looks like they're trying too hard.

    it definetly looks pretty weird on some guys.
    Popped dress shirts are the worst.


    but i think it looks good on some people.

    i dont pop any of my polo collars

    the worst are the ones that have writing on the collar on the back that is only visible once you 'pop' it

    ...I have a popped collar today :mamoru:. I'll do it on occasion... Never when I'm in a gay circle, tho, because more than one of my friends does it. ;)

    Unless it serves a function. Errrrrrrrrrrrrrgo, it's sunny and you're playing golf, or you know, i know this happens to be all the time--your neck just gets really cold.


    Okay so my neck never gets cold...who would have thought. Otherwise, it's really just a fad. Kind of like zoobas.

    double popped collars look like crap imo, just a lil excessive, but i think popping collars look fine, some shirts look better that way imo.


    and it helps in windy/cold weather :o
