I am using that collar/roll as a sample for the shirts I want to make.

I scored a couple of the O'connell's NOS brooks OCBD shirts (which are currently at my tailors being re-cut). I'm not all that impressed with the collar roll but I will post picks when they're wearable.

Yeah, it seems that although the forum idealizes unlined collars, the real thing gets a cool reception. I think people actually prefer the body and smooth curves of an interfaced collar.

An unlined collar produced a very, very nice roll if done right. I should take some photos of my Mercer shirts. Current BB and BBBF collars pale infront of my Mercer collars.

I've heard a lot of good things about Mercer--I'm tempted to buy one just so I can... draw inspiration from... the collar.

Remember that the cut is baggy, even if you ask them to slim it down. Even their logo says "Baggier Better". They are pricey as well. However, they do make a really good button down collar.
