What sort of shirts are these?

Hello, I am interested in a particular style of shirt, namely ones whoset collar can go over the jacket collar. yes I am aware a lot of people find this terribly gauche, however I like the look. The problem I am having is that most floral/patterned mens shirts have collars too small for this to work. I think these types of shirts are probably mostly from the 70s, and so vintage/retro shops are my best options - sadly there are very few near me, so the internet is probably my bets bet. Thing is I'm unsure if there's any specific terminology/sites that may help me in my quest. This is the sort of thing I'm talking about.
I have a number of shirts but none of their collars can go over my leather jacket collar. I'm based in the UK - does anyone have any idea on places to look online that may sell shirts like this? Or if there's a specific term I should use when searching to help track down shirts like this. Thanks

I tend to look at the message before the user name. I looked at this, and knew that I would see "Posts: 1"

Anyway, I knew I would be mocked for this, but I persisted anyway in the hope I may glean some useful hints to help further my search. I await with great anticipation.

You will probably have better success posting this in the Streetwear & Denim Threak.

You should try one of the made-to-measure merchants. You can choose any material and any type of collar.

Have you considered turning one of your bedsheets into a shirt?
