    Spoo, how long are the collar points on your spread collar shirts like that one?

    Special order/MTO. I think you can basically order any model on any last. They normally only make a few models on the Alcudia last, and when I emailed with Betty several months ago, none of the stocked Alcudias (either web store or brick-mortar stores) were on a model I liked (she sent pics of about four different shoes), so I looked through all their models on other lasts and picked this one.

    Simpson and Alcudia are the same except Simpson has a chisel toe and Alcudia has an almond toe.
