Buttoned up collar, or no?

img_3409I’m thinking about wearing a dress shirt buttoned up to the collar, but I’m not sure if I can get away with it (don’t tell my wife because she’s going to  tell me I look stupid)  I think I can work it — dark shirt, buttoned to the collar, untucked, with a casual sport coat and jeans.

I thought I’d do a little research on the topic and I found a cool little blog post on fitterydotcom. The blog post says it’s ok, but a few of the comments hate it.  What do you think?

A small pin makes a big statement

I don’t think it takes anything outlandish to make a fashion statement. Lately I’ve been trying to stand out by wearing interesting lapel pins.  Today I wore this motorcycle pin that my wife bought me over the holidays.  Oh, and you don’t need to wear a suit either— today I wore an unstructured blazer from Uniqlo (made out of jersey material) with a short sleeve v-neck t-shirt from Old Navy and Calvin Klein dark blue jeans.
