Button-Down Collar?

The idea behind this blog is to write about men's style and culture in a non-douchey way. To me, the popped shirt collar is the doucher's emblem, and you can't pop a button-down collar.

Also, I happen to really like button-down collar shirts. They're not as fancy as point-collar or spread collar shirts, but they are the workhorse of my limited, relatively inexpensive wardrobe.

Button-down collars, which stay put even if they're not properly pressed, are lower maintenance than point collars which never really look right again after you wash them. Plus, button-downs have a sporty, American history. (See The Original Polo Button-Down.)

Finally, button-down collar makes a cool sounding acronym. BDC. Dig it.
