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.

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.

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 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.
