Do point collar shirts have a place in our wardrobes? - Page 3

post #31 of 44
Pretty much my entire dress shirt collection is point collar. I wear a 46 jacket and I have an 18" neck. I'm not too heavy, I just have a thick neck.

I tried a spread collar a little while back, and I felt like I should have been wearing walking shorts and a bow tie.

Don't forget the socks up to the knees with the shorts.


I'm in my 30s, and the salesman at the Allen Edmunds store highly recommended for summer I sport the summer shoe, high socks, and shorts. I honestly turned around looking for someone who must have been standing behind me. Unless of course, I look like I'm in my 70s.

I just realized something-some of us are probably thinking of a collar style that looks like this: W

when in actuality there are some point collars that have  a slight spread to them.......I have quite a few of BR shirts in that style,so......

I wear a 'point collar' when I wear a bowtie. They don't look good with spread collars.

I can't pull off a bow tie in my every day dress, but I won't blame someone if they can pull it off. It is possible. I can't imagine wearing one though.

That does not look good.

It's exactly how a traditional formal shirt and tie are supposed to look.

The notch lapel tux is another matter.

I'm too skinny for point collars, but dudes with rounded faces look better with them, IMO.

I wear nothing but point collars and spread collars. I personally hate BD collared shirts. I own only two, and the loops for the buttons are concealed under the collar.

To each their own, of course.

You are either trolling for kicks now, or you are really, as Bleachboy observed, an idiot.

Not a troll, not an idiot. I'm someone who just thinks point collar shirts have no place in a well dressed man's wardrobe. That photo would be dramatically improved by peak or shawl lapels and a semi spread collar shirt.

I really like those types of collars,they seem to lay even better against the shirt.....
