    Should check if the shirt was a CEGO.

    My CEGO shirts have nice, snug cuffs and enough extra length that I can reach up or out w/o restriction.

    The main difference is in how much time you want to spend on your shirts thinking of the design selections on your own, rather than reading a product description and knowing exactly what you'll get.

    There are lots of different shirts from different companies in this thread.

    Which shirt are you talking about? If you can post a link to the particular post where it's pictured or mentioned, it would help.

    I'm sorry about that; I am still learning how to navigate properly. This is the shirt I was referring to.

    That's a shirt that someone had made by Luxire, which is a made-to-order company. You order from them via their internet site here:

    http://luxire.com/collections/home

    That style of collar is typically called a capri or camp collar, from memory. I assume that you can request that Luxire make the shirt with a collar like that as part of a made-to-order shirt order.

    @beardedfella Journeyman's correct, but you'll have better luck figuring out the exact collar and then orderring by checking in on the Luxire thread:

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/304965/...icial-affiliate-thread/12300_100#post_7324887


    I know because I just orderred my first shirt with a single-piece collar, similar to the one you're citing but not quite. There are now so many collar variations floating around in that thread (and even different revisions as people have tweaked them over time) that there's actually an online spreadsheet of who made what when, pics, and links to the order# so people can reference it.

    While I'm yapping about it, here's the collar I orderred (with some small sizing tweaks) - sorry it's just collar porn and not folded collar porn :)

    the lining/Fusing is so light that you can see the collar stays. The Capri/or Italian collar(camp collar is the same as a PJ collar.
    also that puffed Neapolitan sleeve is not working. the yoke needs to be shorter for that look and there is way too much fullness on top.

    Well said. I got the same thoughts but passed to write it due to some of my habitual insulters. I helped a customer with a wrong shirt and was called troll by some of those.

    Also the neckhole or collar seems extremely tall for that customer, unless he wanted that look.

    Edit to avoid make another post; The placed backwards cuff button Shirwaven asked to another affiliate is a Neapolitan feature used there since several years back. I learnt that on Kiton myself.

    fyi: since I ref'd it and followed it closely I'll clarify a few points (but see the luxire thread for more info by the owner):

    • He chose a moderate lining with little (no?) fusing
    • Those aren't collar stays, he has a hidden button down that's pulling and making those creases

    One of my changes was to delete the hidden button down and replace with actual collar stays. I saw another pic somewhere of this config and the visual issues that you're pointing at weren't present; I'm hoping mine comes out like that.

    I have no comment on the sleevehead

    the capri collar is best with a medium fuse or a decent weight lining.. not too light

    the lining needs to support the facings and keep the collar from just collapsing in back

    Our customers have been asking for a Kamakura BD Collar. We obliged and this is the first sample of it. We are very pleased.

    What collar is that from Luxire? I'm going to be ordering my second shirt from them, and that looks promising. The last one I did I tried one without fusing, and it just isn't me.

    Just a standard camp collar, lots of makers produce a shirt like that.
