Fashion Barometer Friday: When is a necklace not a necklace?

Or: when your shirt disintegrates and you are left wearing just a collar. I remember seeing this trend for the first time about a year ago on Man Repeller
, back when I used to read style blogs instead of spending every spare minute reading about seam finishes

I thought it was kind of a cool idea, but not something I wanted to experience up close and personal. I feel like the depth of a collar would shorten my neck, giving the desirable effect of a hipster prize fighter. I’m no Jane Bennet in the neck department.
Collar, shirt still attached
Because of my plentiful experience making collars for the various shirts I’ve made, I did consider writing a tutorial for the blog but like most half-hearted plans it fell by the wayside, and now BurdaStyle has relieved me of the responsibility with their DIY tutorial. Phew.
What do you think, faceless internet masses? The shirt collar as a necklace: The Incredible Hulk loses his shirt or incredibly hot accessory trend?
