Here in this article we will discuss the three popular types of dress shirt collars that are considered fashionable and are popular.

Cutaway Collars

Men of these days are quite style focused and chooses different collar designs. Among the most popular collar, cutaway collar is one of them. In cutaway collar the points of each side propagates apart facing away from each other, angling back towards the shoulder rather than down.

The history of cutaway collar dress shirts goes further back to duke of Kent. It has made its come back recently in middle class as in past it was worn by royals only.

The points of cutaway collar usually positions out from face. Some cutaway collars also have curved or straight edge that again depends on the specifications of the user. Cutaway collar belongs to the family of spread collars. One reason to this is that it reveals most of the upper shirt area.

Men with thin or long face should wear this collar as it suits best on slim faces and minimize the long feature of face.

Button-Down dress shirt

Button down dress shirts are those shirts in which the collar points are stitched down with the buttons. The wearer can easily button and unbutton the collar point buttons. Collar’s material is usually soft and can easily bend unlike other dress shirts collars. Back in times when Polo was the main sports event.

Players losses focus and sometimes-potential scores got missed only due to the distraction caused by collars. They decided to button down the collar points to the shirt, while also keeping the collar’s material soft for the ease of neck movement. From its history, it can be easily guessed that button down shirts are least formal dress shirts, but add a perfect variety in men’s wardrobe. Other dress shirts are designed for formal business wear while button down is designed to be worn on several occasions.

People who work in financial or law firms cannot even think about wearing a button down shirt, as they have to adhere to strict dress codes. In flexible dress codes working environments, men can wear button down shirts easily and adopt unique styling options. With button down dress shirts, men can look really awesome by wearing a light color button down dress shirt with cotton or khaki trouser and black polished shoes.

With perfect aesthetic sense, one can rock the floor by adopting different styles with button down shirts.

Collarless dress shirt

Keeping apart the regular collar styles in dress shirts, collarless dress shirts are also popular among some men. Collarless dress shirts have a short unfolded stand up collar style. These shirts have banded collars that start from neckline and have length of 2 to 5 centimeters. Collarless dress shirts take its origin from china and dates back to ancient times. This type of collar have small and straight collar that does not bend and have round and straight edges. The points barely meet each other, or in some types, the points overlap each other and have button to secure both ends.
