blue! it has more definition if you know what i mean
Blue. Without collar stay.
Orange. These pics clearly show why a medium spread collar looks best on most people. If you make it unfused, softly lined, it will be great.
I, too, vote orange.
Orange. Can you tell how this convertible cuff works? I imagine it very fancy, requiring the tailor to read a 17-page pamphlet on the construction with lots of CAD images.
Or is it just two buttons?
I'd also think about lengthening the collar points a little so they definitely will stay tucked.
I'm nearing the age where three piece suits are finally acceptable...
No. I'm a big small timer while Foo is a small big timer.
A Chinese tailor, I source the cloth and the MOP and she manufactures according to all my wishes. Everything done by machine except the buttons, nothing fancy. ~80€ per shirt.
I like plackets, as long as they are narrow, on my casual shirts. All my 100% Linen shirts have plackets and a V-Shaped breast pocket.
Here's the convertible cuff: I have since then moved away from bevelled to rounded cuffs.
This works with two buttons as well if you need an adjustable cuff diameter for with and without a watch.
Orange looks best to my eye.
Anotehr vote for orange.
Blue is OK too, but orange is even better.
You're an engineer my friend, aren't you...
Another vote for orange - The Uberhemd should be a moderate spread - one that you can live with for a long time, and that will work with a variety of looks.
I wear something similar to green 90% of the time so that gets my vote. Though it goes better with a suit than with tweed.
Blue is my second choice. Orange seems like a compromise between the two with neither the roll of Blue or the sharpness of Orange.
My new shirts are somewhat to a curved-blue.
Orange would be my second choice for more formal occasions.
Blue, never. Not for me/
Another vote for orange. I've always thought a medium spread is more wearable without a tie than a wider spread collar. A narrow spread would probably not be flattering and there is the chance the collar points will be visible under your jacket. It may be a compromise of sorts but collar width is one area where I think a bit of compromise is a good thing.
Just don't get all your shirts made with Simonnot Godard chambray...
Orange, mainly for the reason above. The blue is too forward for my taste.
Whether trendy or not a medium spread collar is conservative in London.
