Shirt buttoned to the neck: Geek or chic?

:iconsimon-schecter:
Simon-Schecter Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012
I have always worn my shirt buttoned to the neck, my fiends often laugh at me and say things like ' Here comes. Schecter, with his shirt buttoned to the neck' and 'How come you've got your shirt buttoned up to the neck, Schecter?'.

What are your views on this fashion matter?

I think it looks more professional in a business environment. Many women just love men in suits or uniform.

I think it really adds something to the outfit.

That aside, its just a piece of cloth, since when has clothes become so important?

I don't tend to button shirts that high because I usually wear button up shirts over another shirt. I'll start buttoning the buttons at about nipple height or a little above or below, depending on what I think looks good (keep in mind it's over another shirt, so I'm not showing off much, just shaping the clothes in pleasing ways.)

Were I hypothetically a guy, I would also button the buttons in whatever way made me feel most comfortable. I may button all the way up, or leave the top button undone.

Well it depends on what you wear with a buttoned shirt :) If you wear a cool sweater on top, for instance, it looks real preppy and awesome!!

I always leave that one unbuttoned, because I like the casual ruggedness look :)
But I think it's worse when they have their shirt buttoned one button too low.

Especially when they have a crap body XD

if that's how you want to wear your clothing then go for it, don't listen to those other guys. truth be told maybe they jealous cause they don't got a button shirt? seriously though, I wear shirts to my neck, hoodies, I just like wearing clothing that suits me and what I like, be yourself, be an individual, as long as it isn't hurting anyone go for it

I don't think it really matters, though personally I think having a shirt buttoned all the way up makes you look a little uptight.
It all depends on the person, though. Do what's comfortable for you. :shrug:

A more conservatively dressed person won't typically be as frivilous with their own money as a casually dressed person might be. It's kokology.

If you have a tie on, yes. If it's just a shirt, no, one button undone.

To me, it's only viable as a base for motorbike gear or at work in "I'm an obedient drone" mode. Otherwise I just hang around half naked or in a hoodie (also half naked).

For guys, nope. Leave the top button unbottoned unless you're wearing a tie or bowtie. Some can pull it off but most guys look like dorks with their top button buttoned.

I usually wear t-shirts. Today I am actually wearing a shirt, which is statistically rarer than a blue moon.

The top button is undone. I feel uncomfortable with it done up, especially when I'm already warm.

You should only button the top button if you're wearing a tie. Otherwise, leaving the top button unbuttoned is customary. To button the top button without a tie is a fashion faux pas.
