+1. Otherwise there is no space for the tie knot, due to the close angle of the collar points. The top of the knot struggles with the base of the collar points. Depending on the thickness of the tie, the know either gets lost under the collar points, or pushes them awkwardly. It looks awful.
I have had one shirt with closed point collar made. Extremely long (4") collar points and no tie space. It definitely looks "Good Fellas"-like. Fun to wear occasionally, when going out, but definitely not a look for the office.
