They come in all shapes and sizes, like most good things. Shirt collars can easily be overlooked, but having the right collar detail can make a big difference to your outfit, if you know what to look for. All of our shirts and collars are designed in-house and customised individually to create unique looks for the modern man.
The Sunningdale Grey Shirt below features a smart contrasting navy collar with hidden button down detailing. All of our shirts and polo shirts have hidden buttons to ensure that your collar stays looking fresh and pressed all day. Here the collar is a more neat and narrow twist on the forward-point collar, to give a fresh and sophisticatedly modern look.
The Coleman Gingham Shirt below comes in a soft, breathable Italian cotton that is ideal for summer nights. The pale blue club collar, also known commonly as a golf or rounded collar gives this shirt a cool and exclusive appearance. There is no need to wear a tie with this shirt, the subtle check pattern and contrasting cuffs and collar gives this shirt enough detail to make you stand out in a crowd.
Next comes the Jimmy Blue Striped shirt. Don't be fooled, this is no ordinary white shirt. A subtle and refreshing light blue pin stripe gives a crisp appearance that looks great on its own or under any suit. The pointed collar, also known as straight or narrow-point collar not only looks good but also helps to flatter men with wider face shapes.
The Jimmy Blue Shirt also comes with a contrasting woollen navy under collar (see below) and concealed buttons to hold the collar in place. Team this shirt with a skinny tie for a contemporary look.
Nearing the close of this collar tale, I bring you the classic collar style. The Morley Light Grey Shirt shown below is made from 100% Italian Cotton and, as you can see, features the classic spread collar style. The contrasting hand-stitched button at the centre draws the eye to the exceptionally crisp collar shape and, you guessed it, the hidden buttons beneath the collar help to keep this shape all day long.
Collars aren't just important on shirts, our polo shirts also have their own specifically designed collars which help to accentuate the athletic shape of the wearer.
The narrow collar style and top button on the Reedley Blue Polo Shirt for example emphasises the broad shoulders and slim waist of the athletic man.
