I like it, picking one up this week.

I'm unsure of what to wear it with other than wool business suits, I'm thinking possibly linen as well.

Tony Leung owns this look better than anyone. I've already committed to the spread collar as my look, so I can't back out now. Which is too bad, because I love the tab collar. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...ghlight=collar The problem with the tab is that if you plan on having your shirts double as with-tie and sans-tie, it looks sloppy sans-tie.

I used to be big on these. Would also wear them with blazers or sharply finished odd jackets. I now have one that gets any wear, and not that often. I don't think it looks all that great with my crane neck and pillar-shaped head.

Much maligned Flusser says to find one or at most two collars that work for your face and stick with them. For me it's the medium spread and the long point BD.

Done deal. I'll pick one up and report back with the results, if it doesnt look good it's just a failed experiment. I'm getting bored with spreads and button downs. Thanks fellas!

rearely see tab collars these days. SG - what is the closing mechanism? i think most are snaps, but i had a couple paul stuarts where the tabs each had a buttonhole-like slit. the top button position on the shirt had the same get up, and a post stud served as the top button and the tabs fastened over it as well.

Paul Frederick is the only RTW shirtmaker that regularly offers tab collars (some use snaps other used buttons as the closure mechanism).

I picked up an Eton shirt recently that has a tab collar. I quite like it...it gives a little different look.

I don´t like it, prefer club collar or pin collar better than this one for eccentricism .

Button closure, I can't recall having ever seen anyone wear one, but that wont stop me.
