Depends on how thick your fingers are.

I agree. Looks quite a modest collar. Lovely colour mind. Don't forget Claudio has some new madras fabrics coming in soon too :-)

True, mine are pretty slim though, and that collar  looks like a 2.5 at most...
this is a three to me:

Fair point, I have quite slim fingers too, so my "3 fingers" could easily be another gent's "2 fingers". In the following pic of a GV shirt, collar roll is better displayed. I only own a tie from Gitman, so can't be sure of their measurements. Anyway, I think their BD shirts are overpriced.

And talking about overpriced garments...

Dries Van Noten top.



And Lanvin knitted t-shirt.

I had a pair of Dries Van Noten bowling shoes. Think I sold them on here a few years ago.

As usual, Reiss' new season presents two or three interesting pieces. First, a cotton jumper for 135 , which I consider a bit steep:



And a wool cardigan that at 130 seems more of a fair deal:



Anyway, better wait for the next sales, folks.
