    I believe what you are referring to is called 'collar roll' and is actually desirable by the majority of SF members afaik.

    Sorry, poor explanation my part. Definitely not talk the infamous collar roll. On mobile so cannot photoshop it. On the buttonhole side, you see how the fabric "collapses" directly below the neckband and top button. The button side usually has the clean, straight line to the neckband.

    When I iron the placket I also slightly fold the collar area over the iron, rather than just flattening everything in one motion. It's like a new shirt where the topmost collar button is almost at a 90 degree angle to the placket. Borrowing somebody else's picture to show the collar and placket with the fold.

    Thanks! I went with this size because the size above was just too baggy for my liking. This is a little baggier than I'm used to but I'm growing to like the fit.

    It's less visible in reality, than in pictures and in my opinion, since BD collar are for casual attire, that is not shoking for me.

    Thanks - I had two cats when I got that mat but it turned out to be prophetic after finding a kitten on the verge of starvation two weeks ago and then adopting it!

    That sweater is the bomb. I have about 1 day a year to wear a sweater. I own about 30 of them, and yet, I could probably justify buying one of those. :/

    It's linen/cotton so you could justify it [​IMG]
