    Orange for longevity.

    I think any one of these will age just fine. They're all well within the traditional and none is extreme.

    ^ True enough, indeed 'blue' is very similar to the classic H&K collar. 'Green' is too spread for my taste, but hardly an extreme cutaway.

    Thank you all for the overwhelming participation.

    What I've taken from this so far is, that none of my designs were truly hideous. The majority is in support of 106° and at least 95 mm (3,77 inch) collar points if not even more (I'm afraid while 10cm (4 inch) collar points may guarantee lapel tuck, they will push me too far towards TTO territory)

    Before this thread I personally was in favour of the green collar, because it wears nicely even without a tie or jacket, too. However this thread might make me re-evaluate things and I might make a few adjustments to the orange collar. It's a process and I'll keep you posted.

    No, that would have been this or maybe this :)
