I've posted some pics in this thread with a shirt, tie, and jacket and it looks like there's at least 1/2" of fabric from the shirt collar sticking out over the top of the jacket collar. I'd have to measure to see if that's accurate or not though. Maybe it's just the way my body and my jackets are shaped, but I think it would look weird if my collars were any higher. I'm sure body proportions play a big role, and every person is different.

You're right, I think. 1.5" would be fine. Just tried the lands end shirt. We are talking about the bottom of the collar all the way up to the fold, yes?

 

Here's me in a 1.75 inch height (similar to clapyron and betelgeuse). I wouldn't want the front to be lower than it is. But it's well below my adam's apple and doesn't make me look like I'm wearing a Turtle neck. For what it is worth, the Kamakura BD's everyone has been talking about are 1.75 inch at the back too.

 

 

Here's the back, more than 0.5 inches above jacket


So, to keep the front, I'd stay with the 1.75 inch back. If anything, I might raise the front a touch.

 

ANyway, agree everyone is different. I don't think this is abnormal relative to what we're seeing in SF. Similar to the last pics in this thread from Betel and Clapy.

 

Let me know your thoughts. Am going to send a shirt in to be duplicated.

That's a pretty nice collar, I wouldn't change much if anything at all if you're having that duplicated.

Looked through the website and I don't see any solid light lilac/purple (non oxford, want it more dobby twill/mid/light weight fabrics)

Is it just me or are there none?

Hey Luxire - now that you have snaps, could you do Cucinelli-esque vests? I'm thinking Minnis flannel or one of those Dugdale tweeds or 13 oz suiting wools + quilting like what you use for the quilted blazer. This is what I have in mind:

I want to clarify how to measure the inner collar band. I'm prepping to send you a shirt to copy but I want a different collar on it.

 

WHen I look at my inner band, I see one stitch at the bottom of the band, closer to the neck, and one at the top. After the top stitch, there is a little fabric that goes up perhaps 0.25 inches before it folds over to the collar wings. So, the total height of the band includes that as well.

 

If I specify a 1.75 inch collar, is that for your sewers from the bottom of the band up to the fold?

 

Thanks

 

@clapeyron and @Betelgeuse, I'd be curious to know your collar dimensions (Betelgeuse gave me the diagram, which I assume is up to the fold). I'm guessing you have about 0.5 inches of collar showing at the back?

 

Cheers.

 

I measured the shirt collar at the front and it's less than in the back, but not by much. If I don't remember correctly it's 1cm difference between the Barba and the Luxire collar in the front part, at the button.

Thanks...oddly enough, I want a bit of a tie gap!

Thanks. Yours looks a touch higher in front than mine above. I sort of like yours.

Mine looks somethin like that from the back. I like it because when I wear it without a tie, the collar stays up. 

 

Here's a comparisson. i think I'm gonna use centimeters cause it's a lot easier to measure.

 

Barba

 

 

Luxire

 

 

 

I guess I'm now going to provide that other measurement.

Thanks for that. The bottom is the shirt you posted a photo of? I think that is why it looks higher in the front and hence, maybe, there's more of a tie gap. I suspect mine is more like the Barba so less of a tie gap. But I'd have to measure.

post #7240 of 13283

so, maybe you should split the difference, 3.5cm in front, to reduce tie gap?

Yes, you are correct. :D

Sorry, how do you spoiler images when quoting?

The shirt I have is about 3.2cm in front...I think everything is making sense to me now (more or less), why tie gap and why not.

 

BTW, that's the Wu Olive Shantung. Had to buy one after seeing you sport several of them!

The one I'm wearing is the Olive rosette. The shantung is solid, if I remember correctly. Get into the Wu Tie Clan! :lol: :slayer:

Sorry, yes, the rosette is lovely, even nicer than the shantung. The carmel striped you've sported is good, but I succumbed and bought that too.
