I could at least understand them more with a large spread collar, although I wouldn't approve of them. With a button down collar its just mixing two things that don't match.

Look, some of these comments aren't very helpful in that I'm not absolutely sure what you mean. Regarding the collars, do you mean that you think the points are too long? Or do you mean that you think they're too stiff for buttondowns?

To my eye, they are bad because:

1) No tie space.

2) No roll.

3) Too widespread.

4) Edge stitching.

#1 is the biggest problem, but they are all problems.

There isn't enough tie space, in fact there seems to be negative tie space. That is not a good look on a buttondown. Check out the one Carl made for Manton, or Mafoo's from Brooks.

OP,

Put a shirt on and post some pics. Besides some questionable details (3 button cuff, no tie space, edge stitching etc), I hope the fit is decent. Sometimes tie space may not appear on a folded shirt but comes out when you have the shirt on with a tie. The seemingly long points may also be justified, and even the lack of collar roll may be reversed when you have the shirt on.

Why would you ask them to not put interlining in the collars?

Makes a better roll with the BD.

I am interested to see one of these on, with a tie. I prefer BD's with longest collar points (I forgot how long the last ones I had made were, 3 5/8ths maybe?)

5) collar button looks too close to the tip, looks awkward

There is actually tie space; I thought it was visible from the last photo.

Regarding roll, how exactly do you describe this and how do you see if a shirt collar has it?

Put one of the shirts on and post a pic, damn it. No words can help you.

Psst... Joe is not a very good tailor or shirtmaker. Nice guy, yes.

I'll grant you that aside gfrom the two blues and the pink they are awfully pastel but we don't have to wear them.

I've got them on Turnbull & Asser shirts; they're a major PIA
Not down with collars either. I think you could drive an Escalade thru that spread
