    This is indeed a Belvest label. Older Belvest, not newer. Sorry. But I'm 100% confident that the Pure Cashmere label is Belvest.

    Edit: Also, I see posts about Flight Coats. I have a Flight Coat as well. And a Aquascutum Trench Coat. If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to post pictures and what not!

    Hey guys! Looking for some Spread collar shirts, size 16-35 (34" wont work sadly). Slim fits are preferred.

    Let me know what you got!

    I have a BB golden fleece, slim fit spread collar in a 16.5/35 that I am looking to trade or sell. PM me for pics, it fits slimmer than a normal slim fit, I had it taken in a bit (exceptional tailor), and have only worn it once (BB still has it on their website).

    MZ: Not sure you really mean "spread collar." the spread of the collar refers to how far the points of the collar are away from each other on a 360 degree scale. So are they 30 degrees from each other at a sharp point like Silvio Dante (Steve Van Zant on the Sopranos), or are they nearly pointing backwards, like something Oscar Wilde might have worn.

    I think what you want is technically a point collar, with a modest spread (90 degrees to 120 degrees, roughly), and an extended collar. Not sure there's a technical term for that, but you basically want the collar to extend long enough to fit under your jacket lapels. The closer to (or under) 90, the longer that collar is going to have to be, because it'll be pointed downward, and have a longer distance to travel to hit your lapels. Conversely, the closer to 120, the shorter it will have to travel.

    My apologies, I am looking for the spread for styling and the length to reach my lapel. If just spread will suffice that's fine but my Canali is both more spread and longer than my BB slim fit non-irons and it is my favorite collar.

    I don't need a fly away (cut away?) collar but I would consider my BB more of a semi spread whereas the Regent Collar from RL or my Canali are closer to a spread.

    I have much stuffs available. But the most urgent is a Nordstrom's (but much nicer than your average house brand; seems possibly custom made) 38S overcoat made from 100% cashmere overcoat. Single breasted. A few very, very small damage spots but very small and only visible on very close inspection. I have until tomorrow to return, and if nobody wants it, I may just do that.

    Measurements:
    23.5 pit
    22 shoulder
    42 length
    22 arms

    (It's on the right. Better pictures soon)

    I realize that, but going from a 17-18" shoulder to a 22" shoulder on the overcoat seems like a pretty big jump. Is that the Canali cut :D

    Usually about a 4-6 " increase on the shoulder and chest measurements.

    Okay. Thanks for the heads up. You can tell we have little need for overcoats where I live.

    Here too, well, I'm hot blooded. I prefer to find a 40 and wear it over a shirt like a regular coat. (I'm really a 44-46R)
