Examples of the proper roll...

Perhaps there is already a voluminous thread on this. But with all the threads featuring pictures of Cordovan Tassle loafers, odes to the bit loafer, or other favorite trad there a thread showing a plethora of pictures featuring proper rolls on our various beloved button-down collars? I'd start one, but I'm a bit technically challenged and don't have a digital camera. I remember what could only have been an epiphany showing me my fondness for the trad look back in the '70s--when everyone was wearing hideous polyester shirts and leisure suits. I drove past a bill board advertising for a local politician. It was a close up of him in black and white with a perfectly rolled OCBD and rep tie with a four-in-hand knot. Not being anywhere near a Brooks Bros. or the the like at the time, it took several years to locate an OCBD (Gant) and a visit to a larger city where I happened into a traditional menswear shop and found some OCBD Seros and regimental striped ties. Wore them till I was able to move up to Gitman Bros and BB. One look at the proper collar and tie presentation can indeed change a man for life. At least in the way he dresses!

I saw Ed McMahon in a commercial recently with a great roll.
EastVillageTrad provides a great example from his latest What Are You Wearing Post.
I'll offer a photograph or two to help develop our roll knowledge or preference.

This isn't the best roll, but it's not bad considering the pressure that is applied by the combination of my big head and short neck (Costanza syndrome).

I don't have any more examples, the rest of my roles are hidden by bows, but I hope this inspires some more pics.
