    Unfortunately it is correct, I'm wearing a 15" ted baker shirt currently, it hasn't been through a wash cycle yet and I can comfortably put two finger under the collar with room to spare.
    I think as I may have mentioned to you in a couple of posts on the MC Casual thread, I am trying to bulk up my upper body, particularly my shoulders that were thought to be too narrow. Maybe that will lead to my collar size increasing. I think I'll just have to put off dressing well for a few more months and have to accept dressing average for now. As for quality of TM Lewin, I haven't bought from them before so I can't say though at 5 shirts for £100 they seemed the right price. Unfortunately I was unsure if I wanted 5 dress shirts and the fit wasn't quite right so I passed them up.

    Is this conservative enough for job interviews, normal formal events, etc?

    thanks

    Absolutely. Make sure your tie is as well and probably best to stick with a white shirt. Just my suggestion.

    not sure it's more expensive than the ass-fuzz wool of the virgin fairy nymphs of Atlantis, but the Hosni Mubarak pinstripes will reportedly run you around $25,000.

    srsly tho' I believe Vicuna is the most expensive wool fabric at around $4,000/yard.

    I was about to say "no" based on the fact it is a windowpane, but then I looked at the close-up picture and saw how subtle the pattern appears to be. I would not hold that suit against anyone in an interview. I think it's fine.

    I think in an interview it is always best to err on the side of conservative. A prince of wales glen plaid suit is not that, no matter how subtle. Sure you can wear it after you have the job, but in an interview, no.

    Vicuna. Oh, and what exactly is the difference between linen and flax?
    BTW, there are more factors than the type of fabric in determining cost. Frinstance, are we talking plain old polyester or Super 150s polyester? :D

    Burberry Shirting

    Overpriced and garish, or quality and subtle?
