Collar and Color of my shirt

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Does this collar (I think it's a straight pointed) and color of my shirt (Van Heusen) looks good on me or not? I have brown hair with blue eyes, weighing around 330 pounds and standing 6'2".

It would be easier to tell if you offered several alternatives: pictures of you wearing white, blue, etc. shirts. This type of collar is fine for somebody with a rounded face.

Here's me from today wearing a blue-herringbone tab-collar shirt by ENRO, and a burgundy stripe VAN HEUSEN necktie, does this collar and color looks good on me or not?

the picture is not so good and the shirt appears grayish and the tie is a darker shade of gray. So it's hard to comment on colors.

Today I'm wearing a french-blue shirt I got from Burlington Coat Factory and a red necktie at Belk's. Sorry about the image is darker. What's wrong with the collar that I'm wearing?

Too much tie space and you need to put some collar stays in the collar.

One thing to consider: Proper collar size is proportional to neck size and head size. You have a big neck and big round face. Your collar could be larger: both with a higher band [the height of the collar] and longer points. Most standard shirts, such as the brands you are wearing, have little or no variation of these measurements between the small neck sizes and the large ones. The effect is to make your head look bigger, because the proportions are for men with smaller necks and heads. Many fashionable shirts have slightl higher bands nowadays. Many shirts, especially those with semi-spread collars, have longer points as well. You can find many on ebay in the dress shirts section -- no particular brand, but search "italy" and you are bound to find some. Among domestic brands, Sean John is copying this style as well.

Here's a picture of me from a few minutes ago, wearing a Van Heusen Tan End-on-End dress shirt with size 20" neck and 36" sleeve with burgundy stripe Van Heusen regular length necktie w/ four-in-hand knot? What's right or wrong with the shirt and tie I'm wearing?

It's a bit dark to tell anything about the tie.  But I personally like that collar a lot on you.  I also think you look better in light blue and french blue than in white and tan shades.  But I like the shirt quite a bit.  You look good.  I think it's great that you like to wear a tie at your age, by the way. So, I don't think there is anything wrong with your shirt. It looks right on to me. I just can't tell with the tie because the picture is too dark, but the knot looks pretty nice.

This is a picture of me from today. Wearing a blue button-down Van Heusen dress shirt (20" neck/36" sleeve) and a Robert Talbott regimental extra-long necktie the guys at David Lindsey Clothiers give me back in Christmas 2003. Also, I'm wearing a plain-front trousers which is dark grey (54" waist, but now my waist is 56" and chest is 58"). What's right or wrong with the shirt and tie I'm wearing?

This colour looks pretty good on you. But personally I wouldn't wear a button down shirt with a tie. For the tie itself, it's a bit dark and I can't really see. But I have to agree with Johnny Norman 3, you look better in the light blue and french blue than some of the other colours you have posted before.
