All important second button - and Daniel Craig

The key to your man's shirt is the all important second button.  Why is that one button so important?
Trust me on this ladies - it is key to a Violet night.  

I admit that I love a man in a well-tailored suit, polished shoes,understated cuff links and the perfect tie, but I especially love a man in that perfect suit, polished shoes, and no tie...but only with the "right" shirt.

See Daniel Craig above...ahh.. James Bond.

In the movies and in the above still photo, did you notice how cool Daniel looks in the dark suit with the crisp white shirt that fit under the suit just so..?
Your eye noticed but your brain wondered...why does that look so great on him?

It is because of the second button.

The second button at just the proper place makes all the difference. It cannot be placed too high to make the shirt look as though it is actually missing having a necktie AND it cannot be too low, so you see too much white undershirt, or hopefully NOT, too much chest (it is NOT the 1970's afterall).

So ladies - get your man to buy for himself (really for you however) the perfect shirt with the perfect placed second button.  As my friend and famous painter Kenton Nelson says says of his painting "The Dresser", "A really well-made buttonhole is the only link between Art and Nature."  Kenton Nelson

I suggest shopping at Charles Tyrwhitt   Charles Tyrwhitt

The proper second button and a beautiful set of cuff links (that you help him pick out) after he picks out your earrings - makes for the details in a perfect Violet's Day.
