Choice of shirt collar

Choosing a shirt collar is an accurate knowledge kept by savvy dude and toff dandy. Many men may see it as a tiny detail, the part of shirt that goes round the neck and the frame for a neck tie, While experts will notice how tasteful you are.

Tab collars look like straight collars, but there are two small pieces of fabric that are affixed with a snap or button on each side. Tab collars have a slightly smaller collar size than straight ones. It look neater when wearing the tabbed style. The points of the collar lie flat on the body of your shirt and look very precise and will enhance your tie knot.

Choosing the best collar style for your face shape

It is important to select a collar which works best for your physical proportions. If you choose to wear a wing tip collar, it will be very nice for an event such as your wedding. However, if you prefer to opt for another type of collar, here is a guideline to help you decide which collar style will flatter your face shape best:

● With an round face or short neck: avoid spread collars; they make your face appear wider and fuller. Narrow point collars help to thin and elongate a round face. The best collar styles for you have straight points with a traditional or narrow spread.

● You have a leaner face or long neck: you may like the spread collar, English tab or madarin collar which can make your face look slightly fuller.
