Several original 1930s German spearpoint shirts... too small for my neck alas.
But here your chance in the "Classifieds":

I noticed that period spearpoint collars usually were not as high, but more curved than most reproductions. Of course there was great variance, back then too, but I really dig the subtle (sizewise) but razorsharp fangs of period shirts.

Silverbelly Fedora 003.JPG

It's got to take something to upstage my silverbelly fedora. "What kind of shirt is that?" I got asked at work today. Not rising to the bait, I replied: "A white one."

"No seriously," my tormentor said, "that collar belongs to 1930's movies." Still not being irritated, I said, "name a 1930's movie in which you have seen the shirt, or the collar, for that matter, and I will be impressed."

He couldn't and more to the point, he was actually trying, rather clumsily, to mock my hat. But as the rest of my work colleagues loved my attire, his insults fell short of their intentions.

My hat, for what it's worth, is a bespoke silverbelly, how I love it.
