I have one Canali that I like the collar on. Care to suggest any better shirts in a price range that is Thrift Thread acceptable? I found a few Etons a little while ago that were very slightly too small... killed me inside!
That's a good question. Sadly, none come to mind. Many of the Jermyn Streeters do non-iron, but not the better ones like Harvie and T&A (at least that I'm aware). Some of my older Pink shirts have collars of acceptable length, and maybe one of my better Tyrwhitts. But mostly not. Nor am I aware of any Neapolitains who do non-iron. Others may know better. And I will keep my eyes peeled.
One solution would be to buy button down collars, but that's, again, a personal choice. Also, some of this is driven by the cut of those jacket lapels.
Side note: there was nothing better than when I (and other family members) used to work for Abboud's parent company, which also had the licenses to Valentino, Armani and others, and could get just tons of stuff -- including MTM -- at stupid low prices. A step down quality wise from what I find now, but being 17 and having a closet full of Italian suits, ties and shirts certainly lays a nice sartorial foundation.
