WHAT SHIRT COLLAR SHOULD YOU CHOOSE?
Although it can be worn without a tie, we think the sharp, angular lines of the cutaway collar help to show off a half or full Windsor tie knot perfectly. A versatile choice, the balanced design ensures it is suitable for any face shape.

Historically casual, the button-down collar was first introduced in England during the latter parts of the 19th century to help polo players keep their collars in place whilst playing. Today it can be worn casually or formally and with or without a tie. We think it’s a great choice for smart-casual occasions.

The Windsor collar – or otherwise known as the full cutaway collar – was originally designed for the Duke of Windsor to match the wide Windsor knot he made popular. We think it’s a smart choice for formal occasions, however it can also be worn without a tie for less dressy events.

Like the name suggests, this style is a smaller version of our classic cutaway collar. While it’s still formal, it’s a little less dressy, so it’s perfect for wearing without a tie during the weekend. We think it’s particularly flattering for long faces, although it will suit all shapes and sizes.

Soft Semi Cutaway
Halfway between our classic and small cutaway collar, the soft semi-cutaway is a formal style with a relaxed edge. It suits all face shapes and looks particularly dashing with a four-in-hand tie knot.
