    it's the: hey look, i'm the cool eyetalian...

    Fail, as I got that cuff on cheapo made in china shirts from the 80s

    +1 on smussato cuff.

    And better if you do another buttonhole and wear it with cufflinks.

    Just got this today

    Sartoria Partenopea neapolitan shirt. Only the armhole is handsewn. I suspect SP shirt are done by Barba, as this one has the exact same collar and the fabric has the same touch as one Barba I own.
    But also could be by Finamore, the new Eduardo collar. I still got none to compare.

    Is there a certain name for this type of collar? I'm looking for a shirt with this type, but haven't been able to find one. Any brands in particular?

    Thanks

    The accuracy of the cutting and stitching on that placket is impressive.

    That one is a mix of wide spread collar and cut away collar. Brands, all the neapolitan, Borrelli, Kiton, Finamore etc etc or you can as for a custom made to measure one locally. Great fabric on the Barba as well.

    ...a newbie seeking shirt collar/fit education..not sure if this is the appropriate thread but I will post it anyway..

    I am 5-6, 39-40S 15.5/31.5 shirt...I just received my first TM Lewin shirts and I find the semi-spread collars way too big to my liking but everything else is perfect.

    Very seldom I wear tie to work, and if not wearing a SC, it tends to overpower my face, not a very flattering look...Sample picture B is very similar to what I ordered versus pic A which I prefer.
    Are this collars typical of higher end MTM shirts?

    I realize that these are from different makers, but any general feedback/comments is highly appreciated as I am contemplating returning the merchandise.

    Thank You...

    I would say these are typical semi-spread collars for high end shirt makers (not necessarily just MTM ones). Some shirt makers (especially those in Naples) can indeed (and in many cases do recommend to) adjust the length / size of the standard collars so it's always best to ask first. I generally shorten the standard semi-collars a tiny bit just for the same reason as yours.

    More or less, the points of the collar should be 9 cm.
