    Sloppy and lazy. I tried it once as a teen with my jacket on and all out of laziness in the junior jumpers, Mr. Trainer KILLED me. I've never done it again

    I don't care for the look with a jacket but have no problems when it's worn alone, in an informal jumper class, at an outdoor show in the heat. To each their own!

    When worn without a jacket, I think it looks fine- similar to an Oxford shirt. With a jacket, I think you look half undressed.

    If you are showing in an informal class where a polo is also acceptable, I think a show shirt with the collar unbuttoned is fine. If it's a big enough class that you are going to put a jacket on in the middle of summer, your collar should be buttoned. If it's not too hot to wear a jacket, a buttoned collar for ~2-3 minutes in the ring won't kill you!

    This is a popped collar -- it's what you do to a polo shirt:

    I don't think you can "pop" a stand up collar...

    Very old school preppy.
    Ha! When I read the title of this post, I, like, totally pictured some yuppie guy wearing his polo shirt with the collar up

    Nah. Yuppies wear 'em all pasted down and sweaty, unbuttoned to show their salt-'n-pepper chest hair set off by their gold chain.
