    Looking for an assist on diagnosing a collar problem. I had this shirt custom made, washed it once, and looking at it now there is something about the collar that doesn't seem right. Photo attached.

    The feel is off - you can see a slight gap on the left and generally the opening feels too "loose". Though when buttoned, the neck is the correct size. Is it the collar length? Yoke too narrow so the collar is being pulled out? Something else?

    Much appreciated!

    It looks fine, the points look a little short, but you need to post a pic of it done up to see anything.

    Cool - attached is a photo with the shirt buttoned.

    Yeah, so, it does seem visually OK, but the feel is off. The sides and back of the colar don't feel secure against my neck when the top button is unbuttoned.

    It's quite possible I'm just being incredibly neurotic here as I want my first bespoke shirt to be perfect. :)

    I have made some notations. The measurements-construction may indeed be off.
    Thoughts?

    Yes, it's you; shirt looks fine. Who's the maker?
