Ask Our Stylist: Top 5 Collar Styles

When it comes to your new customized button-up shirt, finding the right collar can seem like a daunting task.
But don’t make it hard on yourself. Here are some easily digestible tips that break down our top 5 collar styles to help you make the right selection for any occasion.
Forward Point Collar

Best Use Case:
With bowties, narrow ties, formal shirts, and guys with round faces.

What Makes It Unique:
There is very little space between the two collar points which means that these collars are not usually covered by jacket lapels (show off those collar points). 

Occasions:
Great for the traditionalist, minimalist, and any other occasion where dress shirts are accepted (everywhere).


Button Down Collar

Best Use Case:
Preppy looks (with a tie), students, non-tie wearers.

What Makes It Unique:
Two visible buttons on the collar point ends.

Occasions:
Best for more casual settings.


Cut Away Collar

Best Use Case:
Business environments, wider tie knots, wider neckties, men with large necks.

What Makes It Unique:
The collar points sit at a 45-degree angle.

 Occasions:
An alternative to the forward point, this collar works well in semi-formal spaces like your office, board room, or a nice dinner.


Round Collar


Best Use Case:
Oblong or heart-shaped faces, preppy looks, always with a tie (bow or regular).

What Makes It Unique:
Rounded collar points.

Occasions:
Works in casual and semi-formal settings



Best Use Case:
Outdoor activities, lounging and get-togethers

What Makes It Unique:
It’s a neckband with no collar.

Occasions:
Only in casual settings!
