Is that the royal "we" - for me they work as I have a longer neck.
I used to make 2 button collars way before the Italians decided it was a fashion detail.
And yes, It works well for tall men, specifically when wearing a tie.
today the two button collar with out a tie, looks dated.
I am not sure how the borelli shirt is constructed, but the tall collar band has to have some body to support the height.. to keep the upper portion with the higher button from sagging
and the leaf portion can still be soft.
