    I saw this on Crombie and thought "factory second" instantly because I never saw collar that actually was cut so wide it was inverted. Is this normal?

    Pretty unusual, but I've seen similar collars a few times before.
    The RLPL "Keaton" collar looks pretty similar, but is perhaps a little narrower albeit still very cut-away.
    A few Italian houses make very cut-away, spread collars, too (a couple of shirts I've seen by Finamore spring to mind).

    I must say that I really don't like the tie (although I know it's not yours) - the pattern's too bold and the knot's waaaay too big.

    Whoa, those are some serious cutaways!

    The huge tie knot makes it look that much bigger.

    Does anyone actually wear collars like these? It's almost eric glennie proportions. Also, now that I look at the picture closer... where are the notches/peaks on the lapels... are they on his back?

    I think it's a vest with a shawl collar.

    I think it looks fairly ridiculous. Additionally, you can't wear a pratt knot with that because the tie is exposed at the sides of the knot.

    I like how the ad claims that the shirts "subtly frame" the face. Very subtle indeed.

    I love the extreme cutaways...perhaps a mistake, but I will confess to having all my recent mtm orders made in a similar style [​IMG]

    That Udeshi collar had haunted me (in a very good way) for some time now. They are hard to come by in the States and the closest I have come is the Keaton. One day. And who cares if some tie shows on the side, I still do it with either a FIH or double FIH.

    The Crombie collars are not so extreme in 'real life'. I have a couple of they look great with the right tie knot.

    That's it exactly. Don't wear cutaway collars of any sort with ties. But open collared, they have a nice stand to them.

    That said, anyone with that UDESHI shirt needs to burn it with high heat.
