I have traditionally abhorred the idea of a popped collar. Something about it tends to scream, well…Garfunkel & Oates have a song about it. View it here. There’s a bit of choice language, but you get the idea. Seeing as I am not a college frat boy or from Jersey, I think a slightly popped collar is alright. It’s more of an Audrey Hepburn vibe than anything and I love how she would wear popped collars and slim black pants. So classy, chic, and iconic.
So what have we learned here? Popped collars are good if imitating Audrey Hepburn, but they confuse 4th graders into thinking you don’t know how to dress yourself.
