Well I saw this coming for sometime now with the recent advent of the smaller more narrow "Sloan" collar and the general decline of the spread collar over the last year in advertising. RLBL finally released a shirt with a pointed collar. It's front and centre on this month's GQ but I don't see it on the web-site. It has a lot of tie space at the buttoning point. Never thought I'd ever wear anything other than a spread collar but it's growing on me.

It looks terrible. It has a Karl Lagerfeld vibe to it.

SpooPoker does well with the (semi?)point collars, but his has a healthy spread to it

It's coming back because everyone already has a closet full of spread collars by now. Just by a collar that looks good on you instead of purchasing the new batch of rehashed collars every few years.

Those pictures are awful! Lagerfeld; http://www.blog-city.info/es/img7/700_mortadelo1.gif


That's the same reason I always wore spread as well. Never liked it when the collar points were visible.
