    Button collar!

    Next thing you'll tell me that you wear Kenneth Cole **** and have a Blackberry that is 4 years old...
    While I don't wear any, I think a button collar looks pretty good with a casual suit or jacket. Probably not for work, but if you go for that look, they're good options, and it's a good look outside the office.

    But then, you'd know this if you could do quantitative and qualitative research...

    That 60k a year is why I wear bespoke suits and handmade Northampton shoes and still have the time and money to eat some spectacular food.

    Yee of little flair. You can rock an OBDC shirt just as surely as you can rock a cardigan. It requires flair and/or a good jacket, but it can look relaxed while still a set smarter than true fashion shirts or other tops.

    No kids, no drug habits etc.

    If we let 60k USD = 40k GBP, that still puts one in the top 10% of the country or 20% of London, I suppose, for income.

    Now, if you want to buy a property... London gets weird. You then need wealth and you're up against a global floating cream.

    button collar is horrible everywhere.

    btw I'm guessing you'll never get away with double cuff on the job? What about if you put those little frilly things in to downplay them? What about at interviews, does anyone care?

    Also does anyone have an austin reed shirt? Their suits are decent but I think the shirts arn't too bad either, a lot better than Lewin in my experience.

    Double cuff is always fine. Although, I'm a compulsive sleeve roll up person once I'm in a state of 'comfort'.

    This makes my cuff links that are several hundred pounds especially odd. Hm.

    Not quite true. I could buy my flat if Helen let me, which is a nice 2-bed, technically penthouse, on the canal in a nice area ~4 mins walk from the Jubilee Line, ~20 mins from Bond Street, ~10 mins from Borough Market and ~10 mins from Canary Wharf.

    Add kids, lots of clubbing and drug habits and I'd need more. As it is I'm very comfortable

    Button collars and double cuffs are one of those Atlantic divide things.

    In the US, the former are standard, the latter not. Here it's the other way around.

    The "frilly things" (silk knots) are unacceptable at all times.

    Silk knots unacceptable? They're the most classic thing to close your double cuffs with! Obviously they're not the only option, but entirely acceptable. So long as they don't class in a bad way.

    I just despise them. Sadly in the minority. Once I'm partner I shall reject all interviewees with silk knots until the message sticks.

    You have that much in savings? Mortgages are still loose? Or what is the rough price of the property?

    Ish, no but doable, and I'd guess somewhere in the £250k area, possibly a little more. Would have help from parents with the deposit to get a lower rate, but I'd be paying them back along with the mortgage, so it'd effectively be an extra loan.

    Sarcasm? Dawg you're evidently on a different intellectual level, I'm not going to get embroiled in a war of words with you regarding class and sartorial elegance... Peace. :awesome:
    So you respond - lacking the rapacious wit intended, sadly - then leave anonymous negative rep, instead?

    Classier still.

    Firstly, it could have been anyone. Secondly, coming back onto the same thread to whine about it, brilliant. I'm done with this now anyway.
