Can I collar you for a quick shirt question?

Hello,

I am interested in a particular style of shirt, namely ones whose collar is slightly larger than the typical long sleeved floral/patterned shirt - that can go over the jacket collar. yes I am aware a lot of people find this terribly gauche, however I like the look.

The problem I am having is that most floral/patterned mens shirts have collars too small for this to work.

I think these types of shirts are probably mostly from the 70s, and so vintage/retro shops are my best options - sadly there are very few near me, so the internet is probably my bets bet. Thing is I'm unsure if there's any specific terminology/sites that may help me in my quest.

This is the sort of thing I'm talking about.



I have a number of shirts but none of their collars can go over my leather jacket collar.

I'm based in the UK - does anyone have any idea on places to look online that may sell shirts like this? Or if there's a specific term I should use when searching to help track down shirts like this.

Thanks

Try Hawaiian floral shirts made for people with beer bellies.
