Since the shirt is custom, have you considered a taller collar?

I have considered it, but I don't have the longest of necks. As it is, the collar sits just under my adam's apple. I'm not sure a taller collar would be comfortable.

Good stuff posted already. I tried for something texturally interesting considering the limited palate for this challenge. The suit is a gray nailhead from RLPL, wool/silk tie and cotton shirt from Armani and Santoni shoes. The tie is a very dark navy with muted dots that you can barely see from any distance. Far more muted than the closeup shot would lead you to believe.

I agree, these fits are all interesting and varied. There are a lot of nice, tasteful touches that I never would have though of on my own, which I suppose is the point of these challenges. For example, DC's socks.

Looks like a fuzzy bow tie too, if I'm not mistaken.

Wool, yes.

So the plan today was to mitigate the rules of the contest with some texture - mohair sharkskin suit, herringbone cotton shirt, garza grossa tie:
