What to do if you are 1/2 size on the collar or bigger?
The measurement shown is taken from where the button is located on the collar (see image ) to the middle of the button whole. This means on every size there is at least 1/2 inch wiggle room. In other words you can simply move the button to gain that extra inch need it.
