Hathaway: Mr. Cosby, what do you look for in a
button-down collar?
Cosby: The right size, mainly.
Hathaway: But isn't the shape of the collar important?
The roll? The spread? Things like that?
Cosby: Doesn't help if the darn thing doesn't fit,

Hathaway: No, I suppose you're right. But how about
the collar of the Hathaway Club button-down

Cosby: It fits, if that's what you mean.
Hathaway: Well, not really. I was hoping you'd say something
about the look of the collar.
Cosby: Oh, I see. Well, you know what they say.



Hathaway: No, what?
Cosby: If the shirt fits, wear it.
