As a matter of fact, I just started a new shirt yesterday and asked the maker to increase the collar band by 3/8" so we'll see how it goes! You had given me feedback like this, including a thumb comment when those were all the rage, and I think you're right... so thank you. Finally getting some stripes (butcher? bengal? I can't remember which is which but basically the same as you're wearing in that last shot only blue). Trying a slightly curved collar with a pretty standard spread as well with this one. Should have it in a few weeks.
