    Interesting - I've always thought about this the other way around. Tall collars for thin or elongated necks.

    I don't know where you saw that price, but that's low. I believe I was quoted $195 on up, depending on fabric and I think I paid in the $275-$350 range.
    I just googled them and came across an article. It turns out the article was written in 1995.

    I got the same issue, but in order to not destroy the armhole handwork, I can only add darts on the back while closing that obnoxious double pleats on the back that look me feel humped.

    How are you gonna do?


    I expect to just have them taken in at the sides.

    But then you will have to redo the armhole, that I know. Or to diminish the armhole either.

    How are you gonna do to preserve the original handwork on it ?

    I don't see why the armhole would have to be redone [​IMG]

    FWIW, I don't need them taken in at the chest, just some slimming of the body from somewhere below the armholes, through the waist to the hem. As far as I can tell, the only handwork that will suffer are the gussets, which look like they may be hand stitched.

    My first shirt ordered from Blank Label. Thought I would give them a try. The shirt arrived in a tote bag. Nice touch. Good advertising. And, it really is a "blank" label! (Five line music staff???)

    I think the angle of the shot makes it look "off". On a hanger, it looks right. It is not a Brooks Bros BD.

    The spread just looks incredibly narrow--in fact, as if there weren't one at all, but rather that the points head straight forward from the collar. The point length also looks short, but that's more of a personal preference.

    yeah, next time I would see if they could move those collar buttons out a bit more.
