The fact that it's a one-piece has little bearing on how it looks. Just makes it a little more casual with more of a roll in the fabric around the collar.Unfortunately the spread is not wide enough and the points don't reach under my lapels. This seems to be the case with all my BDs from Luxire. I even specifically asked for this one to have a wide spread than normal. Not sure how to remedy it.My inspiration was a G.Inglese collar which I sent a photo of.
