Thats what makes it worth the money IMHO. damn fine collars.

DAT BORRELLI COLLAR ROOOOOLLLLLLLLL

Now this is a big question... MTM shirt or one of these Borrelli's, Finamore, etc?

completely depends on your body type. I do fine with OTR shirts, so paying for MTM really has no benefit for me. A well made MTM in a great fabric will run at least $150...and thats a conservative estimate. Id go with a borrelli et al long before.

What cut does Borrelli and Finamore use?

almost all the italian makers do shirts in full, slim and extra slim, cuts. they are clearly noted in the item description on STF, with all the listed measurements as well. they really do a good job of that on STF.

Dear kopping Internet Koppers,
After falling in love with Pierre Corthay's beautiful shoes in his workshop off of place Vendôme two summers ago, I bought this beautiful pair of black Arcas from Malford of London. Unfortunately, they are too narrow for me, but here are a few parting shots before I put them up for sale on B&S. Ah, mes anges! They are clearly the most beautiful RTW pair of shoes I've ever had! musicboohoo[1].gif
