Shorter-collared dress shirts?

I've come to conclusion through trial and error that shorter, smaller-collared dress shirts look better on me than the (too me) larger variety. I have found 1.5" with proportionally short point lengths to be ideal but the only label I've found that makes a quality slim-fitting shirt with collars this height is Ralph Lauren Black Label, and even at 30% off retail these are $200. I'd be more than happy to take advantage of many of the great deals in Italian shirts at ShopTheFinest and Virtual Clothes Horse but the collars all look like they're huge and would end up swallowing my neck. I have tried Jantzen and the fit is great but the fabrics have been poor.

Does anyone know of any other quality shirt brands with a slim cut and shorter spread collars?

I'd give Jantzen another try. I had them make a few shirts with that same RLBL-style collar. The fabric selection can be dicey, but I've had good luck with the twills and herringbones: a little heftier and seemingly higher quality. Forgot: Also J Crew has shorter point collars if you like the general shape. (I prefer a wider spread). And they're approved by a famous Italian house.

How much are you willing to spend? Depending on the fabric, you can get MTM from anybody that uses the manufacturer "Individualized Shirts" for about $100-500 a shirt. I just picked up 5 from my local store this week that averaged out to about $120 a shirt. I have a different collar on probably each shirt.


I especially like the curved spread similar to this image.

I believe D&G and Prada' shirts for the most part now have quite short collars.
They're not really spread, more of a point down, and tehy're not cheap, not are they the top quality, but they might just fit the bill.

Just based on google... http://www.tailorinstyle.com/76/the-...-can-i-use-it/

If you are in HK hit up Ascot Chang, I do believe I saw some there available.
