    Next time I will visit we will go to "Die Spitze" and the other "Kleidermarkt" together. There ARE shirts but of course many of them are too small.

    Mind if I come along? I haven't been to "Die Spitze" for nearly 20 years. I don't even know where their current location is.

    You kidding me? Of course! But can't say when we will get to Berlin again. Maybe in fall, maybe winter...

    You could go with Mario too. Spitze is now in the Suarezstraße, Haltestelle Sophie Charlotteplatz LOL I don't even have to look it up anymore.
    Shirts can be had for 30€ but some are more expensive. Mostly short arms though. :eusa_doh:But maybe a short sleeve will come in handy for warm weather :p

    Yeah, short sleeves are great. There's a chance that they actually fit. ^^ I won't go back to buying long-sleeved shirts off-the-rack.

    Exactly. That's what usually happens when I'm looking at Colors or Garage while some of the stuff at Spitze and Glencheck would possibly fit but comes at a hilarious price. :wacko:

    Hi Rudie,
    Apologies for the delay.

    Attached is the image of a spear collar, made in Warzone Oxford with a thin linen lining. Agree with your suggestion. The look and feel is very nice.

    Luxire, looks very good.

    how long are the points on that collar (measured along the inner edge) ?

    Luxire. One of your earlier posts showed a spear point collar in which it seemed to curve out slightly, rather than point straight down. Was that a feature of the collar or simply the way it had been photographed?

    Also, just to clarify, there isn't a choice for 'Spear point collar' on your website. I assume i would have to select one of the other collars and then make sure the details of the collar style are in the notes section. is that correct?

    Thank you HBK.

    The points are 4" in length.

    Yes, It is a difference in the way these were photographed. The image earlier was taken with the collar placed on the table, spreading the points. The image above was taken with the points hanging as they would normally do on wearing.

    The spread can be made to your liking. Also, the tie-gap can be adjusted as desired.

    Yes, that is the way these can be ordered for now.
    We are facing some technical challenges in making it more intuitive, but its a work in progress.

    A different view of the same collar. Changed tie-gap and angle of the points.

    If I was to order this style from your website, what would I put on the order form? If i simply add my measurements and make sure I have included reference to this shirt in the notes, will they know to ignore the fact that I have to tick other boxes (such as normal collar etc) on the form? How should I describe the shirt on the form?

    Yes Two Types, whatever is required should be mentioned in the notes and/or follow-up emails. All the provided requirements and information are collated and then the order is executed.

    You can select the default options for collar, cuff etc and describe your requirement in the notes. The notes are given priority over the selected options, and if there is any doubt or contrasting information, it is cross checked with the customer before execution.

    I can attest to the above. The shirt above is currently on its way to me, and by the looks of it I'll be ordering some more in the near future. Customer service was very good, and every detail I requested was taken care of.

    :) But cannot discount the fact that we really need to redo our website.

    Cheers. If yours is in that fabric, I guess I will have to order a different colour!
