It is just the way the collar is folded and sitting. In this folded and proped position all collars look wider than they are on the body.

I love borrelli shirts and I would wear them exclusively, (since they can be had for crazy cheap all over) over my bespoke ones if they even came close to fitting off the rack.

I think Borrelli is just very inconsistent in workmanship. Makes sense, given how they make their shirts (random old ladies taking things working on them at home). Could be great, could be terrible.

What is left to decide? I thought you are getting the cloth made up as buttondown collars with single link cuffs, no gauntlet buttons and no placket.

I thought that at a distance the finish and color variation of this stuff was supposed to be "subtle"? Even on my crappy monitor it screams burlap and, therefore in my view, is incompatible with business wear. Why would you drop a few grand on a bespoke suit to achieve a measure of elegance only to pair it with a shirt that would look more appropriate in a classroom or on a hike. With tweed, sure. With a suit, never.

Buttondown calls for shirring at the cuffs but the single links are better with pleats...

You can't rush a masterpiece.

I certainly agree with RJman. And while I would love these for casual use, it might also be fun to have one of the bottom two done up as a dress shirt.

ok

Ok, let's compromise. I can see them with tweed suits. Lol. BTW, what has RJman opined on the matter?
