    Is it possible to make collars looser? Up to a size greater and still have the shirt look normal?

    I have a few dress shirts kicking around that fit perfectly except for being a little too tight around the neck. They don't have any tie space so I figured maybe....

    If you don't mind that gap between the two sides of the collar, you can always move the button.

    I've been told their are collar spacers that will let you open up your shirt a half inch. But i figure with these and with moving a button more than 1/8" then the placket starts to buckle and shirt looks off. I'd recommend donating the shirts or flipping them on ebay and getting some new ones.
