In Praise of the Uniqlo OCBD…
I’m a big fan of the Uniqlo OCBD. It doesn’t have a great collar roll, and the collar leaves could stand to be a bit longer. But it’s solidly constructed, fits slim without being tight, and is priced to sell at $30 (sometimes 2 for $40 on sale). It’s also long enough to tuck in for a dressier look, but short enough to not look too long when worn untucked. I encourage you to get thee some if the chance presents itself. If nothing else, it’s an amazing casual shirt for putzing around in.
