    i'm getting a new batch of shirts from o'flynn..a mix of his standard day collars and spread collars with french cuffs

    question is, what type of collar (stiffness, shape) would you recommend for a light-medium grey cashmere (cannot remember if pure cashmere or cashmere/wool or cashmere cotton but will check when pick up next shirts..
    i was thinking to go with the o'flnn standard day collar and button cuffs..

    anyways..not really sure on the collar or how i'll wear it yet but have to decide soonish

    just wondered if any knowledgable people could help me choose the collar..

    the shirts inspiration is a shirt my father had made in milan years ago...i realize this shirt will not have the SF seal of approval

    hi all..
    thanks for the feedback..
    button down sounds good..its going to be a very casual shirt anyway so that may be the best approach

    Don't think SpallCamica speaks on behalf of SF. Ever.

    I speak for all the forum as mafoofan does.
