Ratio Clothing, which offers custom-fit shirts made at a certain factory in Garland, North Carolina, yesterday introduced a longer-point buttondown collar option.
Named the Fitzgerald model, the collar features points that measure 3.5 inches. Reads the description:
We consider ourselves to be OCBD aficionados here at Ratio, and designed our Fitzgerald Button-Down to be the truest expression of the classic style. The 3.5” Fitzgerald captures the pronounced long roll that the style is known for in the most authentic sense.
Ratio has also made club collars an official option. Though I’ve told owner Eric Powell they could be a bit longer, they still work fine for me, as a guy who sports 3-inch ties and lapels.
