The collar points are too short, so they peep out over the lapels from time to time, there's too much tie space and the collar itself is too stiff, so there's no collar roll over the tie. On top of that they're just very uncomfortable to wear. Never buying a CT shirt again.

That's why I only go for CT spread collars. Longer points and they hide behind my jacket lapels just fine. Also, my latest CT shirts have much softer collars than previous versions.

I bought it last week. They didn't have a spread collar in my size with double cuffs in the store though :(

Can you post a pic of one of their spread collars?

Nice look, MF (tho a rather unfortunate acronym you hold).

Don - that may be your best fit yet.

Agree with estitchy, that is a nice fit DonCologne. Although I would use a collar with bigger collar points. That would look amazing! biggrin.gif

"Espú... tu eres el Mirrrey!" lol8[1].gif That is what some ladies would say to you if they see you with that SC around here, but the combo looks perfectly fine, I would use that for sure. nod[1].gif

Spoo, is that the belt that was the subject of the lengthy "fused / single-piece" debate? laugh.gif

Lookin' good.

Ah. I won't buy the regular CT point collar shirts, for precisely the reasons you cited.

Sure. Not the greatest image quality, but this gives you an idea of CT's spread collar. Shirt looks white in the pic, but it's actually a faint blue hairline stripe--one of my favorites:



You can see that even with my jacket unbuttoned, the collar points hide nicely behind my lapels. Also has a gentle roll to it, and not much tie space. For me, it's pretty close to the ideal spread collar.

P.S. Jester, you might recognize the pic from the KW thread. tongue.gif

I may have to pick one up.

 

Nice KW suit. :-P

Wrinkles under the collar are a balance issue, not sure how severe it is but it could be fixed if the tailor knows what he is doing. I would be more concerned with a high button stance on that suit, it is not doing you any favors. All coats from HY have high button stance, not sure why he does them that way? Maybe he models himself and could be a shorter guy.

I didn't think it was that terrible. Didn't even notice it compared to some that I've seen (IE, suit supply L jackets).

Not necessarily. Better to show it to your tailor.

Thanks sir! fistbump.gif Suit is WW Chan, my first bespoke suit ever and I still like it very much.
