Hi Folks

I bought 2 years ago, when I didn´t use ties a Versace Collection hidden botton down with a terrible collar.

It is so awful with a 4IH that I want to transform into a better collar. My taylor only should have to cut the points and sew the backstitch with the same kind of thread.

I post pictures of straight and computer did image.

I´m serious on it,not a joke, What do you think about it?

Thanks

That collar, while not the best, has done nothing to deserve such butchery. Seriously, cutting a collar into a shape it was not proportioned for can not end well. Try using different ties/knots.

I tried a lot of ties, but I ended in all as a Mafioso collar kind of the Goodfellas as in my other post about collars.

I do not like that collar man! I would like to mute it in a KENT or similar one.

I wish I knew to sew...

+1, that collar is fine imo. Have you tried some of the smaller knots? FIH? Prat?

I only use FIH or Victoria! I even tried with the simplest knot Oriental.. but I ended looking as Devito on The Goodfellas. What a terrible collar . It only looks good without tie

Seems like a tricky alteration. Good luck!
