I think you could add another 10mm to the height of the collar band, it looks fairly low to me when compared to the blade length. If there was slightly less spread, it would also give a better sense of height.

 

IMO E&OE

Todays vintage: A suit from PUB in Stockholm, approx 1940. An other shirt fråm the 40´s with "Acetoniserad" collar. (See above) and a bow tie in Rhodia silk, probably a little less vitage, from the  60 - 70´s I think.

Today I shall visit a company in the note book business called Whitelines. What is more appropriate than chalk stripes?

Thanks for your perfect timing Spoo. I've complimented your pics several times in the past so you know I'm not trying to pile on here , but I've always thought that your vertically striped shirts with a really thick collar band of horizontal stripes, as shown in today's pic, looks off to me. I dunno if you deliberately request or choose that, or if it's your signature look, or if it's just a consequence of your preference for taller collars, but I only notice it on your aggressively striped shirts and it always seems to spoil the congruence of your collar shape/spread/tie knot combo. All IMO of course!

Are you saying that something it would be better if the stripes were vertical or angled? Or that the collar band should be lower?

Low collar bands on someone with an average or long neck look sad.

It can, and probably often does, but I think shoulder slope, tie knot and width, and buttoning point all play a role in optimum collar height. They all seem to be a factor in creating the proper lines. A high buttoning point combined with a high collar might look a bit odd. Lower spread collars look better, at least on me, in a suit context, but I like higher spread (a recent development) with odd jackets.

If we are talking about non-spread collars with a low collar band, then yes, probably always sad.

Sorry about the blurrines in the close-up pic... and the PS is not so shiny IRL, it's really true that Drake's squares tend to do this.

For the record, yesterday's lunch with mktitsworth was delightful, save for the weather, which prevented Tits from dressing up, which was a disappointment to us both, though more to poor Tits than myself - he doesn't get that many chances to wear his Despos in the presence of people who might appreciate it in all its splendor. I would look forward to a future occasion on which to view it.

Sorry about the lack of shoo cerkle, Stitchy, but Tits walked a great deal before meeting me for lunch - his shoes were not suitable for publication, and mine you saw with my posting yesterday morning.

Yesterday's rain is finally ending, and I've decided to assay something a bit more complete than yesterday's look.

Suit - BB MTM
Shirt - Lewin
Tie - Turnbull & Asser
Braces - Paul Staurt
Cufflinks - Deakin & Francis, via DeNatale, NYC
PS - Robert Talbott

I could never wear a DB suit, I think you pull it off very well.

It's barely a shoe parallelogram, but it's the thought that counts. satisfied.gif
