I would say the exact opposite What people do with their collars when walking the dog or taking out the trash, I really don't care. But trying to incorporate "casual" elements like flipflops or "popped" collars into any kind of formal wear makes me throw up a little in my mouth.

It's that loop on a stick thing that one can use to pull a pony tail through the hair behind the elastic. (I googled it. Here: http://www.seenontv.com/prod-pages/topsy_tail.html ) I think I have had one of those. It gets really old really fast.

When I read the title, I thought this was referring to getting naked (neckit as in LolCats spelling of naked).

Anyway, this is horrible. Reminds me of those 'gangster' guys in my city who wear their fake Lacoste polos with the collar popped.

Popped collars make me think of fake burberry (i.e. Chavs)

To pop or not to pop... that is the question
Hey all

I just bought a new Burberry polo shirt. It has the plaid on the underside of the collar. When the collar is worn down it looks like a non-descript polo shirt. With the collar popped the plaid is visible.

What do you think ... pop.. or not?

Any pics? If you were in the UK I think I would err on the side of non popped, but I suppose burberry check doesn't cary the chav connotations over in Canada.

Clearly Burberry intend you to pop it ... the question is whether you want Burberry making styling decisions for you If you bought it at the Burberry store, I have found that they have a fairly generous return/exchange policy.

I've bumped another collar popping thread ...
