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

    That would be my preference, also. I'm going to take it to a local tailor and see what might be possible. This shirt was an experiment. It will be fine for casual wear.

    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'm surprised that you've found a tailor willing to do all that to a RTW shirt without charging you a lot...but since you have, more power to you.

    Maybe it is worth doing that to some of my favorite old RTW shirts. We'll see.


    - B


    I just factor in an extra $60 for every shirt I buy since not a one of them doesn't need serious alterations. Recently I went through my old RTW shirts and decided for all of them to either get them altered or send them to GoodWill. Having a shirt in my closet that doesn't fit perfectly is just creating clutter. I also do this with polos.

    And yeah, lol at that Blank Label shirt. I remember going on their website and feeling REALLY unenthusiastic about it. They have literally 38 fabrics to choose from and cartoon cash register.

    That is very poor - you might be happy to wear it but why should you? Send it back or take your measurements elsewhere.

    Probably a combination. The collar points are 3" and the neckband at the front is 1.5"

    They are taller than my bespoke T&A, but work much better as a consequence. I have quite a thick neck for my size, and the taller collar makes it seem more proportionate

    I have a thick neck too and have arrived at the exact same conclusion, and oddly enough, the exact same measurements. The angle of your spread even looks similar to mine.

    I like to think how it's similar to putting a fat girl in a tight skirt - it only makes her look fatter. Put her into a fat-sized skirt, and she's just fat. Which is still an improvement over fatter.

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

    that's what I heard.
