There is something classic about a button down collar even though not actually that classic. I find them neat and tidy and look great poking out of a jumper. Thankfully the new Lad is in mostly very tight polo shirts so we are safe, plus when they are out in a white Oxford shirt make sure you dress to your style, not everyone else's.
wash, dry and iron, then you then get a non starchy garment and no packing creases. Plus some clothes have a weird packing smell to them, normally from some plastic bag they were shipped in.
