Example from another member:

 

 

No. he can't even close that jacket...

Love it @Mr. Six. Wish the tie was a little wider

Maybe he's trying to pose.

 

But anyhow, your opinion (I take it most SF members might agree), supersedes this old post from Ask Andy that a small gap is fine?  http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?52663-shirt-collar-tip-and-jacket-lapel-relationship

Found this vintage coupon of Holland & Sherry tweed and couldn't help getting a jacket that's fit for country walks :D 

I know, I am missing a dog in the pics :D A bottle of nice peaty, sherried malt whisky from the 70's could do as well :D 

The atmosphere is Scottish enough to match the cloth :D but the pictures were taken in beautiful Poland <3 :D

Thank you, Helden. As it is, the apartment is in the capital, and I'm buying it at a fire-sale price from President Snow. satisfied.gif

Quote from that post: "RULE: Seen or not seen ... Not in-between." Now tell me how there can be a middle between seen and not-seen. ;) 

Anyway, when you wear point collar shirts, obviously the collar points will be visible. Personally, that's one of the (many) reasons why I don't like point collars. I'm firmly in the "not to be seen" camp.

Not seen is the only camp. Though there is that OCBD hippy camp (always smelling of reefer and incense), but they're alright.

Visible (non-OCBD) collar points will actually ruin an outfit for me.

Meh, less spread than I like, but variety is important, and I certainly do like it.
