MCA - I've been through the derivation of "Italian Collar" in another post.
Thank you Alex. I thought you were referring to your "Why Bespoke Shirts" thread: http://126.96.36.199/cgi-bin....5;st=60
But after skimming through it, my assumption was proven wrong. In this thread you wrote that the origin of the term "Italian collar" is not known. If you explained the derivation of the term in another thread that I missed, which differs from the one I provide, please indicate so, and if possible, the URL. Kind regards. PS: I didn't know Irish linen shirtings were available in such a wide range of qualities. Â The blue shirt pictured in the above thread is sheer (interlining shows through), whereas all the Irish linen shirtings I've seen are completely opaque.
