    I'm not sure if this should be posted here or in the tab collar thread, but since "the claw" have been discussed here before...

    Modern claw collar shirt. I like it. I don't want to spend $125 on a shirt though, especially not with those boring fabric options.

    I am now the proud owner of this tape link collar. It's unfortunately too big for me so it will just be a study piece. I will post detailed photos once it arrives.

    The tape is 5mm wide and it's 3cm between the buttons.

    The construction of the link is the simplest imaginable; it's literally just a piece of tape with buttons sewn onto each end. I'd probably fold the ends to avoid fraying, though.

    Since there are a few bib front shirts in this thread, can anybody tell me what the most common fabrics were being used for these shirts?

    Here the shirt body seems to be quite fuzzy. Flannel?

    This looks rougher than normal poplin to my eye. What kind of weave is it?
