Most extreme cutaway collar? - Page 2

post #16 of 36
what is the designer trying to accomplish with this? Surely, there must be a reason, perhaps a consideration for a certain type of face or shoulder shape on which this collar would render the wearer more attractive or appealing to the eyes?

Haha, you must be under the impression that current fashion is focused on making people look good, rather than making people shell out cash for whatever half-baked idea they think of. Look up Thom Browne and you'll see what I mean.

Wearing a shirt with a collar like that open with a sports jacket would result in the collar sliding under the lapels. It would look ridiculous.

Eh. Here's a cutaway collar that somehow manages to avoid being swallowed by lapels. I personally like the line it creates with the placket, but to each his own.

Anytime I've done it the collar manages to stay up very well, better then a standard collar. Like the pic above. I'm trying to think of why, and I think its a combo of button positioning, collar stiffness and lack of actual collar.

You offend me. I like Thom Browne, esp. his refurbished designs through the mill of BB.

"Any sort" sounds a little overzealous:

+1. nothing to be afraid/ashamed of. pitty now these crombie collars remain predominantly in the barrel cuff universe.
when talking about cutaway collars, these tend to be higher in the back than classic collars (i.e. HK), but these are really at least 1/2" higher than their classic brethren:

I thought that was an advantage of wearing a wider collar open-collared. I've seen guys wear narrower collared shirts open collar under a jacket, and having the point of the collar stick straight out from underneath the lapels of the jacket just looks funny.

I actually like them very much. I wouldn't choose to have more than a handful in my shirt collection though.

I suppose if I wore long ties I would not have a problem wearing a shirt like that but I don't think they would look good with bowties.
