Sorry to burst your bubble, but the collars on those Lands' End shirts you linked to suck. I optimistically purchased the tailored version of that same shirt during a sale back around Christmas, but promptly returned it to Sears due to the collar. The points are very short (probably around 2 and a quarter inches) and didn't hide underneath my lapels. The spread was also disappointing; although the pics on the LE website seem to show a decent spread, in actuality it was a medium spread at best, probably just a little more than 90 degrees once buttoned-up.
Anyway, I know it's a matter of opinion, and maybe you'll be happy with the shirts/collars, but they certainly don't live up to the typical SF look of at least having long enough points to nicely hide behind jacket lapels. On a related note, LE recently did a seersucker dress shirt with what they call their cutaway collar
. This looks much closer to the spread I typically like, and the points look longer, too. Now if only they'd do some of their "normal" dress shirts with this collar...Edited by Flyswatter - 8/18/12 at 4:49pm
