Pre-washed for softness is one thing - obnoxiously and gratuitously distressed is another. It looks like it has fringes not distressing. Part of the joy of an OCBD is "earning" its distress.

And the cuts' proportions are off - way too short and oddly boxy or something.

I do like the discretely hidden "1920s Man" logo - echoes Paul Stuart's wonderful "man on a fence."

^^Indeed, the distressed seams are pretty awful. Even after I've taken delivery of a new and well made heavy oxford cloth OCBD and worn it hard for perhaps three to five years, only the collar tips and cuff edges are fraying (in a decidedly handsome way) and certainly not to the degree pictuered in that sales add for the Rowing Blazers shirt! ;)
