I can live with the collar up, but I hate the big saggy, gaping neck line it creates. Also, the collar is hardly "up", it curls over or looks stretched out. If you want it up nice, iron it or something, and button your shirts. Or better yet, just get a nice turtle-neck sweater or something that, like so:

if that's what you want to wear or how you want your b/f or husband to wear then fair enough but don't judge other people on how they dress. i'm not going to start critising your clothes and I'm sure there are items of clothing or ways you wear them that I would think look ridiculous.


that turtleneck looks quite nice actually.

Honestly ewen I think collars up are more accepted on us Brits. In America I agree the stereotypical trendybopper is a bit sickly.

IMO brit men in general have much better taste and in clothes. Most of the guys I see w/ popped collars are just trying to be punk or grunge, like their mom bought them polos but they don't want to look preppy or whatever.

Jeez.. this thread is getting worse by the minute.

Every single person in the world has their own opinions about anything and everything. I dont understand why we cant just respect that and disagree about things in an adult manner. Just because you think something sucks, doesnt mean other people will and vice versa. And I'm speaking generally to this thread, not at anyone in particular.

What's worse is that stores are promoting it on their mannequins. I've seen someone, who obviously had a great distaste for this trend, go around a Gap Store and fold all the collars back down. Goodtimes. Goodtimes.

I think it must be just because of different associations. In the US, it seems to be more of a preppy, Abercrombie, 80s-revival thing, whereas here it's not as recent (I see a LOT of people do it with football shirts and with jackets). I don't even think about it or notice how people wear their colars...I guess because I left the US before this trend became widespread, so I don't really associate it with anything (unless it's a denim jacket and then I always think of 80s Michael J. Fox ).

A guy wearing two layered polo shirts in contrasting pastel colours probably would stand out to me, though.

I think this is very serious. Popped collars can not come back. This is a very serious fashion mistake

Sorry if I offended you, Palace Hero. I don't know how it goes in Oz, but the kids in American high schools with their collars popped are the biggest douches around.
