Does this shirt's collar look odd?

I got this shirt as a gift and I've got a business casual event coming up later this week. I usually only wear polos and stuff, but I think I should dress up one notch for this thing... I was gonna wear this without a tie:


(Refresh if the image doesn't come up... I've hiked up the brightness since the shirt is kinda dark)

Does it look like that collar splays out too much to the front and sides? It's got a weird pointy thing going on. What do you all think?

Did you take the cardboard out from under it?

It does look like it's shaped/pressed wrong.

It's like the collar is shrugging it's shoulders.

It looks kinda stiff. Try washing it with a little fabric softener or iron it.

What's up with the back of the collar? Is it folded down properly?

Yeah, it's folded down properly, I tell you that shirt is weird!
And yes I removed the carboard insert, and the plastic things in the tips, then washed it, hoping the collar would get a little roll to it. No dice.
Oh well... sure did look like a nice shirt when they gave it to me!

For starters, that shirt is too big for you.

That is very weird looking.

I think the simple addition of a pocket protector might help by drawing the viewer's gaze downward, away from the collar.

Is the collar creased in the right place? You might need to reiron that shirt.

Dude. You can shelter a family of four from a Nor'Easter under that collar. It looks fine if you plan on keeping off the rain. Otherwise I agree with Jolt.

I agree, that shirt is too big for you.

I agree, that collar is too big for this planet.

Look for something else to wear. You don't want to wear ANYTHING that makes you feel uncomfortable. It just ruins the evening.
