Here are the common types of shirt collars you need to know.

Spread Collar 

 Spread Collar

A spread collar can be worn with a tie and is versatile enough for business, formal or casual occasions. The word #spread’ refers to the space between the collar points. Owing to the curve, this is only available as a fused option.

Length of collar point 3” 

Classic Collar (2 Button)


Classic Collar

This is a prevalent and traditional collar shape.

A tie works very well with the Classic Collar, which can accommodate a large knot.

Length of collar point 2.5” 

Button-down Collars


Button Down

Self-explanatory – the collar buttons down, attaching the points directly to the shirt.

This collar is more casual in style so that it can be worn with or without a tie. Available only as a fused option.

Length of collar point 3” 

Button Under


Similar to the button down, but the points are attached to the shirt from under the collar. Only available as a fused option.

Length of collar point 3.”


Cutaway Collar


Similar to a Spread Collar, a Cutaway Collar has a space between the two points, but they point outward instead of down. The Cutaway Collar is an excellent choice with a full or half Windsor tie knot. However, it is equally suitable to be worn without a tie. Length of collar point 2.7"

Straight Collar

A: A collar with long pointy edges is usually worn with a link, as the extra-long collar points can look odd without one.

Length of collar point 3” 

Tab Collar


This is a classic collar with two small tabs in the middle of the collar points. These connect beneath the necktie, pushing the knot up and out.

Length of collar point 2.5” 

Tunic/Collar Band


This is a collar with a small standing band, usually buttoned, in the style worn with detachable collars.
