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
Shoes - Bergdorf Goodman house brand
Overcoat - BB
Hat - Selentino
Scarf - Frank Stella, NYC

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

diaz - what is the pattern on the tie, cant tell from the pics? it looks great tho.

iangp - stylin

m0bbie - that shirt really does not belong with a suit, and you aint gonna get any love around here for a skinny burberry check tie. i get the vibe that you like "iconic" branded patterns. which is fine if thats your thing. just know its not a fave around here. also, the quasi monochrome look isnt working in that fit. sorry, dude.
