Yeah, it's close. That one never photographs quit right.

If I had this one to do over again, I would get it welt+flap. The cloth is really too crisp for patch. Though the summery sheen makes patch tolerable.

+1 with NOBD ... i say cull ... just because the collar points are short and it comes off as more of a casual shirt.

Chris - tie pattern could be a little different (less dots) to stand out better against the shirt. also a little more textural play would be great.

The tie is woven and the check in the shirt is a fairy pronounced texture.

-Gaz, love that nailhead, great lapels, nice simple combination.

Are these fused collars? If so, the collars contain a very light inner lining, correct? They look great.
