I do know enough to know that part of the problem with that image is the knots are all wrong for the collars.  Looks way tighter than I tie it even when I'm making that knot.  I think my distaste for the spread collar comes from every badly dressed dude wearing a spread collared shirt with the top button undone for the third time between washes and the tips are halfway to the shoulder

Well, to me anyway, a straight or point collar, which I'm guessing that is, looks sort of unkempt without a tie many times.  A more spready collar less so, simply because it's shorter.

If I am going to wear without a tie, I prefer button downs first and spreads second.

Yeah, you can't really judge whether a spread collar looks good when it is shown with a four in hand knot. The english spread or president spread can look nice with a proper combo, but getting any wider than that is getting a bit flashy imo.

Although a windsor looks good with a spread-y collar, due to its width, I prefer the shape of four-in-hand pretty much all the time.  You can tie it a little looser or with a big fat grenadine silk tie to take up the space.

you just pointed it out but I've always equated that look to spread collars and that's definitely a point.

I don't like spread collars - am I wrong/should I revisit that opinion?

As long as it's wide and long enough to tuck under the jacket lapel

The only sorta real determinant on how much spread one can away with is proportion of height to width in their build and neck.

That said, wear it if you want, don't if you don't.

So speaking of Drake's, I just learned they are selling fleece vests. Can officially mark them off.

Or just do a double four in hand.

Depends on tie length and construction.

The black Weejuns at the bottom of that outfit were a surprise. 

Is the guy in the overcoat aware that he looks like a flasher?

That watch is at least 20 years old.  I still like this model over the 2000 to present version.

I like oxford shirts and saw an ad for one I liked from Proper Cloth (blue and red university stripe).  I got it right on my second try - the first one shrunk a bit too small after the first wash.  On the first shirt they let you send it back twice to be "remade" (new shirt sent and they do whatever with the old one) for free.  I like the collar, fabric seems nice, I may take another look at some of the other customization options that exist (buttons, cuffs) as I replace some other shirts that are a bit too short.
