Know Your Collar

According to Merriam-webster.com a collar is a band that serves to finish or decorate the neckline of a garment. Style is unique and something that you create, so getting a collar that matches your own personal style is something that each and every one should accomplish. The most important thing is to make sure the shirt is fitted and is #SharpCrispClean, once attained everything else will align perfectly.

Classic Point Collar

The classic original collar is a collar that most men can identify as well as have in their wardrobe.  The classic point collar is extremely versatile that works well with business professional and casual looks. This shirt collar looks great with any type of tie knot or bow tie. When trying to be safe and conservative the classic point collar is the go to call for all.

 Cutaway Collar

The cutaway collar looks good with any pattern or color combination you could think of. This collar type can be used for dress up events of socials with the friends or colleagues. The cutaway collar gives a one of a kind appeal that will have you standing out amongst crowds.

Button-Down Collar

The button down collar brings the preppy school boy look to any outfit that you may piece together with it. This button down collar is often seen on casual shirts rather dress shirts because it’s the least formal collar type of them all. Never wear this dress shirt for an interview. It’s highly recommended for the individual who wants to leave the tie at home and marvel them with the look to wear this shirt type.

Spread Collar

Spread collars come in a variety of widths and cuts. This collar style is highly recommended for dressier occasions. They reveal more of the upper shirt while accentuating the tie. Full/ larger knots for example the double Windsor is the ideal tie knot when wearing a shirt collar such as the spread collar. The medium, classic, wide and semi-spread collars are just different classifications of the spread collar.

Wing Tip

The wing tip collar brings a formal look that is normally worn with tuxedos. Ideal to wear with bow-ties but can wear a tie.

Collars based on the designer can vary and an individual should always research and try different ones to add versatility to your style. “Knowledge is power” so abuse your power, while living #SharpCrispClean
