The history of a shirt collar
Until 1920 many shirts had the same kind of collar: a straight-cut collar that, as it were, collapsed with the lines of the neck. In the 'roaring twenties' there was a demand for more unique styles and thus collars. The first ads appear around that time, emphasizing the collar as a unique element. Since then there have been hundreds of collar variations.
Why different shirt collars?
A shirt is not complete without a collar. The collar of a shirt also has a strong relationship with fashion. For example, a
has been fashionable for a long time and followed by a widespread or cutaway collar (slightly cut backwards). It does not make for a different fit. It only provides a different view around the neck. Making a good and balanced collar (parallel in mirror image) is one of the hardest components of making a shirt. Precisely because the collar is so decisive for the final image.
What shirt collars does there exist?
Shirt collars consist of dozens of variants. Herein a number of collar types can be distinguished:
• "Straight point collar": seen as the classic collar. Also described as the "English Spread Collar" or the "London Collar".
• "Semi-Spread collar": a modern, popular variant. The collar is wide cut and allows for a double windsor knot in the tie (a wider knot). The wide-spread collar is also called the "Haï Collar".
• "Cut-away collar": a very tight collar design. The collar is completely cut away, literally "cut-away". • "Italian spread collar": a widely used Italian collar with Italian shirts.
• "Button-Down collar": an American variant that originated in the sports world. A button-down shirt is attached to the body with buttons and thus the neck collar always stays down.
• "Wing collar" in Dutch called "vadermoorder". This is the most formal version of a collar. This collar is often seen on black-tie or white-tie occasions like under a suit or a tuxedo.
In addition to these, there are still hundreds of other variants. One of our personal favorites is the "Flyaway Collar - Shark Collar " . This gives a modern effect when no tie is worn.
