Q: I wear a variety of shirt-collar styles with my suits, including tab, spread, point and button-down. However, I‚Äôm not liking the look of button-down collars with suits anymore. Is it an inappropriate combination? Also, are tab collars out of style? If not, how should I wear them?
A: I feel as though I answer this question every month. Button-downs are sporty. They go with sport coats, and they can be worn with single-breasted suits but not on more formal occasions. Tab collars can be stylish. You can‚Äôt wear them if you have too big a face. And if you wear them without a tie, people will think you are copying Bob Dylan, not a look I recommend for everyone.
