    Which of the Jermyn St shirt companies has a high collar ? H&K, Lewin, Coles, T&A, H&B etc.

    I have 10 year old Pink's that are around 1.75" but the collar points are barely 3". My newer CT's are also lower and shorter than I would like.
    Ideally I am looking for a 2" high collar (or slightly higher) with points at least 3.25".

    Thank you in advance for the assistance.

    Among the classic makers really pretty much just Turnbull and Asser. Lewins has a grotty designer line that may have some high collars. Richard James was doing high collars a few years back; they're still relatively high. Otherwise you might want to go to spivvy joints like Interno 8. Frankly nowadays I'd bet Marks and Spencer has them.

    I have a Burberry shirt purchased last winter that has a high 2" collar with 3 1/4" points. It is made in the Great Britian and not the US however. I used these collar measurements when ordering my first Jantzen shirt.

    Or you could go with detachable collars.
