Very wrong.

Fortunately, it was exclusive and didn't spread to other makers.

Didn't Congressman Charlie Wilson have an affinity for shirts like this?

Yes, Charlie Wilson wore epaulets on most of his shirts. And most had button-down collars. Custom-made, I suppose, to keep his braces in check. Tom Hanks wore such a shirt in "Charlie Wilson's War". - Tucker
