A Survey of Collarless Button-Down Shirts

May 10th, 2008

Rufus Humphrey, the post-punk math rocker turned art gallery owner from Gossip Girl, will occasionally wear a collarless button-down shirt. This is bewildering because he’s a cool enough guy who used to impregnate groupies while on the road with his band, Lincoln Hawk. Sure, he settled down with kids in Dumboiamsburg, Brooklyn, but being middle aged is no excuse to fall prey to the C-less B-D. Familiarize yourself with this monster before it gets you, too.

Pirate sleeves and cuffs, Amish-style collarless top, tucked in to beltless pants.

    For some reason, you have just convinced me to find some collarless button-down clothing for myself.

    If you wear a C-less B-D to a bar, talk about the C-less B-D with a girl for over an hour (you cannot change the subject) and then take her home and round 2nd base (verify w/ pic, obvs), I’ll pay you $17.
