    So I'm getting a tux from indochino and also the shirt from there.

    Which collar would look best with a bowtie? I don't want a wing collar, but I don't see a turndown option. I only see: medium point, classic point, small point, spread, large spread, cutaway, buton down, pinned, and rounded

    Thanks

    Also, should the bowtie be silk? I've never worn one before and this is my first black tie event

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't a spread point collar the default for tuxedo shirts?

    And, yes, a black silk bowtie would go best with the lapels of indochino's tuxedos.

    I'm not sure, but I just went with a spread collar.
    Thanks

    Those are all types of turndown collars.

    Yeah I just kept reading other sites. Mainly blacktieguide and eventually figured it out.

    is it actually a spread collar? i would think a point or semi-spread works best as a spread is really for a tie. the semi-spread IMO gives a better visual contrast with the points of the collars
