    I am a newbie here. I admittedly do not like the look of spread and cutaway collars, even though a large number of Brits wear ones regularly here in London. I think those collars make wearers' face look even flatter. For dress shirt, I personally prefer pin collar and tab collar over those two collars (perhaps, with strong influences from Ivy league look scene, Madmen, Boardwalk empire, Magic city).

    Any thoughts?

    Depends on your facial structure and personal preference. You got it right, that the spread color "widens" the face...therefore it is perfect for thiner faces.
