 I'm sure yr rite about Flusser.  IMO tho, collar size has to be done on a face-by-face basis-  play it by ear   Serious tho, I think it's about balance and proportion.  Some of his ideas about slimming fits and so on r whacky   tru that  this was it i think-  the Italian look 
 thanks!  and re:  collars  IIRC  Flusser rite  he says a spread balances wide faces and a  point balances narrow faces.  Either way, I think yours looks good (from what I see of your face ..)     Manton's not pedantic about it.  I posted an SC with a neat in Whnays, Foo got all ornery about it, and Manton defended me, saying it's common in Italy (to which Foo said 'Italians don't know what they're doing', or some such)

Hi guys   New SC
You should have just told us your fit was awsm.
[[SPOILER]]   nice proportions C-dog.I need some browns in my lower half.   I'm on the lookout for light tan flat front RTW in a 10-12 oz flannel or a coarse plain weave.  Hard to find.
