You know GS, it's all about the "details". Those smaller collars being sold by every maker now are too "mainstream" looking for me. ;)

Mike, this IS a small, deal-breaker collar for me, I don't think the A&Fs can be thrown into that category:



Hideous! :o
The top "Open V" is pret-ty small there GS, IMO. The other 2 yes, those aren't really that under-sized, BUT if I was looking at them personally I would have "passed" only because I could find something at AG or wherever a bit more to my OCD tastes ;)
... and again, Happy B Day!

I think I can get away with it tbh, Mike, more concerned about the length, we'll see in a few days anyway (I hope). If earlier A&F tops are something to go by the collars are decent enough size wise.

And thanks for the birthday greetings, amigo!  :)

I'd given up on this Far Afield polo after a first attempt at purchasing resulted in the Spanish Mail losing the parcel during the first covid crisis; worse still, the top was sold out in my size before I had even a chance of reordering it. I have to say that the Far Afield guys made the process less painful with their second-to-none customer service.

So when they warned me they had restocked the polo, I jumped at the chance and after just three days since ordering here it is, safe and sound with me. Mike, I hope this collar will have your seal of approval  ;):

Well I like it.
Off a recommendation on here I got the plain long sleeved version from them which is solid blue about the colour of the middle panel.
