I love this collar, the Ben Silver "Kelley". It has a great angle of spread, and nice long points. Does anyone know where I can get a similar collar for less money, say less than $70?

You can do modern tailor for under $70. The question is which collar would it be? Maybe cutaway large?

In moderntailor it's going to be Cut Away Medium. Maybe, you can ask them to make the points half an inch longer, too.

I have six shirts from Modern Tailor with the Cut Away Medium collar and the shape resembels this exactly.

Thanks for all the help. EvilFish, are the points long enough to be covered by the lapels of a jacket?

That's a great looking collar. I don't know of any brands which would have that same collar for your price range. But, I did have MyTailor duplicate a similar Barba collar with some success. I think shirts with basic fabrics are about $80. Double for the high-end stuff. I recommend them if they come to your area.

Hmm... too spread for me. Is it impossible to have a less-spread collar that keeps its points hidden? Their St. Tropez?

Don't forget that the collar looks less spread when the shirt is folded. The one on the shirt you posted is definitely very similar to the cut-away.

The best collar I've seen from MT acecow. I think some of the other brands out their have superior collars but I'm sure MT will get better as they seem to listen to customer feedback.
