What You Need to Know About Shirt Collars

Except popping it up.

A detail often overlooked by most, your collar is just as essential as the color and fit of your shirt.

The Straight Point

The staple of a man’s wardrobe works on almost every face and is suitable for most occasions.

The Button-Down

The straight point collar's preppier cousin does the job for more casual affairs. Its sporty roots traditionally prohibit it from being worn with a suit and tie, but feel free to break the rules with the dressed-up options designers and retail brands have been releasing.


The Cutaway

If you’re looking for something bolder, consider the cutaway collar for a dose of rakishness. Being the widest of the spread collar family, it’s meant to be worn with a wide knot such as a Windsor or Pratt.

The Band

The sleekest and also the most casual. Wear it with a sport coat to keep it strictly business and, when the weekend comes along, undo a few of buttons to underscore its no-fuss appeal.
