Both work. I think collar height is a bit like cuff length in terms of how much to show. Most people agree on 1/4" or 1/2" looking best, but it's personal preference. Both collars look very nice with that suit. I saw your posts in the SuSu thread, just pick whichever collar stays under your lapels the best. I like even larger collars, but I'm not sure about your build.

CaptainTohm / ericgereghty / wigglr for all the advice throughout the thread. Thanks, it looks like the president is .5"

wondering how they compared re fit.


I despise darts in a shirt. One of the delights of bespoke or MTM shirts is ordering a shirt that fits without using darts.

I think I could use back darts. The shirt almost hugs my belly, but theres 2" inches of room in the back that can be pinched off easily.. Im afraid to do it through.

I'm not sure for what look it is necessary to employ the use of darts. But if that is what you want, just as I would specify no darts, you may specify whatever darts you would like. That's also one of the advantages of MTM.

You need a bit of room for when you are seated. You don't want to be that guy whose shirt is straining at the buttons around his midsection.

If you say so. I think they look like you bought a shirt that was too big and you had to get it altered.

I don't like darts because I feel like the whole point of MTM is getting something that fits, and looks clean. Also reminds me of RTW department store box pleats etc.

Darts are unfortunately a necessary evil for those of us with 10"+ drops...

Lol, not sure if this was a try at a humblebrag. I have a 8-10 drop (depending on maker), and I have no problem.

I do not necessarily dislike darts, but I do not think they're a necessity if a shirt is made for your measurements. As someone with an 11-12" drop (depending on how lazy with the ol cardio I get lol), I do not need darts with my PC shirts.

Agreed.  They're not, for that matter, always necessary even if one is simply altering a shirt, since a tailor can rip the side seams and re-sew, though this might cost more.

 

That said, darts are more visually obvious in some cases than other, i.e., when a strong pattern is involved.

 

Cheers,
