    Are there any other brands that make this sort of shirt collar other than RLPL? Or is there a term to describe this sort of collar shape

    I don't think I've seen shirt collars that appear to be go up instead of down from the front button, to create a collar point that is an obtuse instead of acute angle, or at least such an obtuse angle.

    FWIW, this is where I found this picture. A little too expensive for my wallet, though. [​IMG]

    Brooks Brothers makes some extreme spread collar shirts, you can find them on line and in their stores. When they're on sale you can ge the slim fots for between $50 and $60 each. Nice shirt IMO, but not as nice as the RLPL you show

    It's amazing how often this gets asked. It must happen whenever The Wedding Crashers plays on cable or something.

    Or you could get an alterations tailor to cut off the tips of your shirt collars for you.

    I bought a couple of these from someone who said that the collars had been professionally altered, turns out the tips had been trimmed off, folded over and sewn up. Pretty horrendous to look at from the undersurface but looks okay from 'outside'. I bet it's quite cheap to do [​IMG]

    RLPL calls it the Keaton collar, but never refer to them as Keaton in a generic matter... very un-SF approved!!
