CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(I guess those would be forward point, non Claghorn approved)

Dude, that's "Don" Draper. Not "Dom" Draper (See your query and watch the typos, buddy).

Whether or not the points fit under your lapels depends on the angle and length of those points, not what a particular manufacturer calls the collar.  There’s no industry standard here (who could enforce such a thing?)—what one maker calls ‘semi-spread’ another might call ‘spread’ or something else entirely.  These are largely marketing terms at this point, with the names proliferating over the past few years, so we now have ‘English spread’, ‘Windsor spread’,  ‘American spread’, ‘Medium spread’, ‘Classic spread’, and god know what else.   

 

What matters is the geometry, not the name.

 

Cheers,

A man with 12 blue sport coats, that's who.

Ah, as with women then wink.gif

@Bill Dlwgosh OTOH, if you would post here, people can give you advice which collar to get to make the points fit under the lapels.

Or even better, the GNAT thread, which was created precisely for questions like that:

 

http://www.styleforum.net/t/375309/noodles-good-natured-advice-thread-improving-a-business-wardrobe/26595#post_7970987

 

Indeed, a shirt discussion over there might be of interest to many of the usual suspects.

Looks like Dom's wearing a point.

I'd say more than geometry, it's length, though geometry definitely plays a part. All my collars that stay under my lapels are at least 3".

Huh?  Length is part of geometry, as I said.

Shall we say angle v. distance?

No, angle and distance (length).

Yes, but I meant the difference between what you two were talking about. Not all the elements involved.

I was talking about both from the beginning.  From my initial post (q.v.):

"Whether or not the points fit under your lapels depends on the angle and length of those points."  [emphasis added,]
