“But what really pisses me off today is that it’s very difficult to get a true button-down constructed the way they used to be. It’s all fused collars now. It used to just be two pieces of cloth stitched together, and now there’s a lining inside that’s fused with glue. I get my shirts from Mercer because they still make the old-fashioned collar. It comes back from the laundry all wrinkled up, and people say, ‘Your collar’s all wrinkled,’ and I say, ‘Yeah? Well they’re a lot more comfortable and I really don’t give a shit.’”—
