I doubt you want to go custom made. A standard point collar works well with a pin. See if www.tiebar.com has any. If the spread on the collar is too wide, it will not hold together. Also, I question the use of this accessory--something of an affectation, IMO, especially without a dressy suit. But since most doctors dress like shit, with hideous ties and "comfortable shoes" (plus chinos), you'll stand out for sure! Good luck with it.

Sorels or Kamiks are the way to go. Key is a thickly-treaded rubber bottom with a felt insulated liner. I believe the rubber boats that posted were Le Chameau wellies, which, being leather lined, are fine for cold rain or minor slush (and also enable you to tuck in your pants. I do wear mine with a tweed overcoat on such days, as they look better than then Sorels or Kamiks I have recommended. But if you are looking at serious snow boots to wear with a down coat or...
Welcome to the club of those who ask perfectly decent questions just to get their balls busted by some of the freaks who inhabit this site and for whom clothes are like crack. Now you know that asking a question about a suit that cost less than $1,000 is asking for trouble. And NEVER ask about shoes unless they are also in the $1,000 price range and you are prepared to discuss the virtues of various "lasts." To answer your question, I bought a few of the regular...
