    I love the roll on those button down collars. I haven't seen a roll that good since the sixties. Where did you get those shirts?

    I'm not very good at this; this is the best I got. The shirts are in pastel colors lah because I got them from a tropical tailor who caters to a predominantly ethnic Chinese clientele.

    Dear Zeus, are you wearing pants in that pic? - B
    It does look like no-pants Friday. Vox's pics of his button downs look really good. OP's collars don't look like they'll work with a tie. And the buttons do seem to be very close to the collar points. But I don't wear button downs so I'll keep out of it now.

    The right chest looks like it is not cut for the slope of your shoulders. The collar is messed up.

    It was taken a long time ago, I can't remember.

    But, probably, yes.

    My right or the right side of the screen?

    Oh well. Wonder what I can do about the collar.

    They look like Borrelli to me. Jose, that collar just isn't working.

    I was holding out hope that the fit pictures would be the saving grace, but the lack of tie space is really showing in the picture.

    The collar is wrinkling right at the top where the tie knot is.

    Collar roll - I like it, it looks nice, it looks fun.

    How is it achieved?

    I presume that you must have a nice soft collar without fused interlinings, but enough weight to roll instead of crinkle. Do you also have to place the button a bit higher to force a bit of a wave into it?

    Perhaps the masters of the SF universe can educate me.
