Haha, damn you're good. Yep, never really shopped at H&M before but I liked the fit of their dress shirts a lot (especially for that price). When I bought them I wasn't really looking at the collar and didn't even know anything about spread collars, point collars etc.
With budget concerns in mind, could you guys recommend a more appropriate collar shirt that has a slim/extra slim fit and won't break the bank? I tried on the Brooks Brothers extra slim today, and while it fit quite nicely, $88 a shirt is just out of range for me at the time being. Some similar fitting button-down collars would be great as well.

I have a long and narrow face. I choose medium spreads because I don't like to be too conspicuous. Some guys on here would go for an extreme cutaway.
I agree with musicguy that the collar could be a touch higher.
I would say long and narrow moreso than short and wide.. just a pretty normally proportionoed face. Bespoke just means custom tailored right, or is there a brand name I'm not aware of that uses bespoke?
I appreciate your guys' feedback by the way.
