Last couple of days (sorry for extra shitty pic on second one):

I think this would have looked better with a light blue shirt, but I prefer to err on the side of a white shirt on days when I'm in court/administrative hearings.

smile.gif Doooo eeeeeeeeetttt. Seriously, it's a fantastic tie. I have that reaction to everything I get from Vanda, but this one in particular has a really exquisite hand to it. Highly recommend. The PS is Vanda also.

Gents-

Do you guys recommend a collar style from Brooks Brothers that is sufficiently large enough to fit under a suit lapel? I have several shirts from BB with what seems to be their "standard" collar but they all are too short or shaped incorrectly to reach under the suit. For the purposes of this question I'm focused on BB only.

I'm trying to build a good taste-approved wardrobe.

Most of their collars seem to fit like this:



...but I want something that fits like Foo's:



Thanks to all who have contribute their knowledge to this thread - I've learned a lot!

Agree fit is fantastic but not the subject of the thread..

Disagree - perfect length!

I have to disagree - this would look substantially better without the BD collar.

as i understand it, the general opinion here is that in almost all cases the points of the collar should reach/be under the suit lapels, and i would agree with that. certainly with point collars that is not really possible, but then again, most here are not pro point collar either.

i have noticed the same with my brooks brothers collars as well, besides for a few that do reach the lapels. maybe its an american look, im not sure, but both manton and vox, who have strong american tendencies in their dress (i think that is the case) have, as far as i recall, collars that do reach the lapels.

Brooks offers a semi spread collar but the collar is still pretty short.

You'll have to look elsewhere for anything vaguely resembling foo.gif's collar.

There are many factors, such as how high the suits are on your neck and such. Finamore, Borrelli, and Tom Ford seem to work for most people, but personally, for whatever reason the only shirts that have been able to reach under my lapels were shirts that were made for me. I don't understand the physics behind it.

That looks way too matchy to me. I also think a lighter blue shirt would look better. The silk square would look better puffed, not folded also.

Tried a monochrome type look today. I think I failed miserably. Dont be too harsh on me.

I think a solid tie would have looked better, maybe with some texture. That looks a bit optical illusion-y.

Not the best shot... shirt is light blue, not white
