All those uniquely fashioned men have their distinctive designs and show their aesthetic sense.

In dress shirt’s fashion and style, collar is the major attribute that clearly defines the look and style of the shirt. One can gain the perfect look by opting rare but most stylish and unique collar styles. Let us discuss some most distinctive collars.

Curved Collar

Tab collar

Tab collar is hardly available anywhere and is not seen except occasionally. In actual it is an addition made to the collar. A tab collar is a straight collar and has a piece of fabric attached to the end of each side of the collar. The ends have a tab fastener that hide below the tie and keep your collar down in the right place. Tab collar is extremely useful to keep the collar in the right place and keeps ends down to refrain from curling or giving an odd look. With a tie over your tab collar, you can be carefree without ever having any worry to look in the mirror to check collar and tie setting. Tabs help to push the collar down and give the tie knot a bold uplift that makes it look quite prominent.

Wing Collar

Wing collar is mostly worn on Tuxedo shirts; it is short in size and extensively starched to stand up straight, with both the front points pressed down below the chin. Usually bowtie or necktie is worn with wing collar. Usually wing collar with bowtie is worn in high-end parties and functions like balls, operas, ballets, elite class weddings.

The banded collar points that overlap generally have button on it to secure the both points of collar. Banded collar is accepted socially and usually worn in white tie functions.
