What type and size of shirt collar should I wear if my suit is cut to be on the skinny side? I also plan on wearing a skinnier tie (maybe 2.5 to 3 inches across the widest part).

I wear primarily skinny ties because its more of a casual thing for me and i find button up collars work very well because of the casualness of it

regular spread collars also look good, as well as collars without too much of a point

i find spread collars dont look very good with a skinny, rep tie

this example i dont find looks very good
too much space

personally, I like to wear buttondown collar shirts+thin tie with my skinny suits, esp if they are high buttoning. that style is more of a mod thing....


but otherwise I find that collars like

- simi rounded

or

- long regular pointed (esp if it's a lower buttoning skinny suit... a la dior homme)

or a regular pointed collar looks fine




those are my preferences

I would suggest a fairly straight or close point collar. 2.5-2.75 in length of the point.

make sure the lining is not too heavy. even non-fused.
I would stay away from a very high collar band.

Skinnier tie should go with skinnier collared shirt and narrow lapeled suits IMO.

Thanks for the tips, guys. I'm going for a more fashion forward look. Any advice on retailers that may have shirts for this look? I don't want to break the bank, either.

Button-down. You could also go with one of those hip 1960's era Continental button-downs that you see in the French and Italian cinema.

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
