Looking at these pictures take me back to a time when I was so absurdly anti button down collars, it was ridiculous. In what some would call my #menswear infancy, I had somehow developed the belief that button-down collars were reserved for stodgy old men and folks with no sense of style. In retrospect, I most likely associated them with those two groups because that was who I saw wearing them. Needless to say, today they fall firmly on the list of wardrobe essentials.
