Life Lessons for the American Gentleman

Anonymous said: Dear American Gentleman, if a man wears a button-up shirt inside of a sweater, how should his collar be worn? Inside or out? Top button buttoned or not? Many thanks and I hope you and your loved ones have a lovely holiday.

I always leave the top button unbuttoned, my collars are starched enough that they typically don’t spread much from the sweater collar, but I’d say in or out is a matter of personally preference. Go with the cleanest look based on the collar type of the shirt, more narrow collars, tuck, spread collars let spread.
