    Acceptable?

    I just finished this 1930s collar for a 10$ shirt I bought at the local supermarket. I think the spread is a bit too wide, but apart from that I'm pleased with the result.



    What do you think?







    Regards,
    Henrik

    I think Wow!
    Did you modify an existing collar or totally replace it??

    Great job.
    As you mentioned, the spread is a bit wide but the result is extremely impressive!

    It's a bit more than 3 1/2 inch.

    Great job Henry. Very resourceful. If the collar spread is too wide,...then a larger knot in the tie would compensate I think?

    When you do the next one, would you do a step-by-step photo shoot please?

    That looks great and I'd like to learn how!
