A lot of bull, if I may say so. The key is to wear a shirt that fits your chest. If it fits, then the collar is not going to sag but if you are wearing a blousy american market shirt the collar is going to lie limp on your chest. B

I always thought the Brooks collar fit perfectly without a tie.

I'm not saying otherwise - my point is that they are talking about fixing the sympoms, not curing the disease. Bjorn

One thing I agree with - the bit on button placement. They are dead on - the second button is always too high to wear buttoned (if you wear a slim-fitting shirt it tends to pull, especially if the collar is a button-down) and leaving it unbuttoned requires a gold medallion to match. Drives me nuts...

Good point. I've noticed this problem in a few shirts of late, not only those that are slim-fitting or button-down, but in say, some of the newer J. Press shirts too.
