I attach a picture of the Armani new seasson´s web. This picture looks totally amazing to me. Perhaps because I live in the Victorian age and the 40´s and 50´s and collect cinema noir movies..

What can you see about the taller collar? What´s the " key " of the picture?

The B/ W, his hair ala Glen Ford,the matched pocket handkerchief,the taller collar or the narrow tie? Would he be better with a standar tie?

Could you help me to analice the picture please?

Thanks, Perhaps I´m ordering that shirt or asking to made one with that taller collar and this closed collar ( What´s the english technical name for this collar)please?

Thanks

I like the look except the collar, not so much. Looks like a small-spread, maybe? Others here know this far better than I.

I like the look too, but I guess the clue is the collar. Let's what some experts add..

Don't forget the proportion of the shirt collar to the tie and the lapels... Those other components make the high collar stand out even more...

This looks like a pretty standard point collar to me. It does seem to have a lot of tie space. I guess it's the photo angle or something, but it also appears one shirt collar is much longer than the other.

I agree with you on all three points, except I would say 'too much tie space'. It is okay I suppose if one likes huge knots - I don't.
