    I thought I was the only one who knew his real identity... I believe he may be the only one that knows what I look like though.

    I respectfully disagree: I think Noodles needs a higher shirt collar...

    I see what you're saying, but I kind of figured that it appeared that way because of the way he was taking the picture....arms held out and jackets collar rising on his neck.

    Could be. There's only one person who knows for sure... Noodles, is the collar high enough?

    Are the collars high enough?!
    Theyre perfectly normal compared to all my other shirts. EloidA, can you explain?

    May I politely point out that Noodles' Hallam pic is a good example of pants with too much tapering. The drape of your pants would greatly improve Noodles if you entertained the idea of a slightly wider leg opening.

    If I may intervene, I believe the question is whether the collar could stand to be a bit taller, based on the fact that you appear to have a long neck, as well the collar in that pic does not appear to extend very far above your coat collar (far enough, perhaps, though given your neck length, could perhaps sit higher still).

    I think it looks more elegant when a shirt collar sits a bit higher on the neck. Added benefit is that as a consequence the collar points will be a bit bigger, better counterbalancing a possibly large head.

    Edit: AJL beat me to it. :)

    I gots a long neck, big head, etc. You guys just pile on. I have small eyes by the way.

    Could the angling of the shot have skewed the collars?
    Here is at a different anglee

    This is my own personal preference, but often times I think an extreme spread collar can emphasize that it is too short. Noodles, your collar is perfectly within acceptable and even good for SF standards.

    That said, I agree with Elio and prefer them to be taller, and in my case slightly less spread to emphasize the height. Again this is my personal opinion, as often I find even Clags' collars to be too short and too spread for my taste.
