 Thanks, Cleave.  I tend to agree with your assessment that the collar is too high. The tie is a Sam Hober, Maclessfield silk #135, https://www.samhober.com/macclesfield-print-silk-ties/blue-lavender-and-light-yellow-on-brown-macclesfield-printed-silk-tie-135.html .  I cannot say enough good things about the quality of my Hober ties and David's willingness to cutomize them to your specifications.  I used the specs from your March 2014 post on the collar to order this one. ...
Looking for a little GNA about the collar on this Luxire shirt which utilizes the @Betelgeuse collar.  Any thoughts on changes I should make?  Collar height?  Spread?

@Kira, I've been asked once to pay half in advance of the work and, in hindsight, that should have been a red flag that the work I was requesting was a waste of money.  In my situation, I wanted a suit that was a size too large taken in at the shoulders, chest and waist, with the tailor charging $250 or or so for all this work.  It was not a new suit and I should have just worn it as is, since I bought a new suit to replace it less than a year later.    I suspect the...
 You were lucky in that instance.  As a rule, they do not stack.
Regarding BB, the 15% corporate does not stack with other discounts.  So, if tailored clothing is 30% off this week, that is the entire discount.  The best discount is the December 26th sale when items are 30-40% off with an additional 15-20% off for purchases that day.  The problem with waiting, though, is that BB has seriously lowered its inventory levels over the past few years to the point where the more popular items are out of stock by then.  If it get a sport coat,...
