what type of collar is this??

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I've been trying to find collars like this online - i see them all the time, but i have no idea what it's called.
this style is not your typical english spread or italian two-button high collar, right?

also, the way it folds down...it's almost as if there isn't even a crease...and it 'curves' down, not flat...like a 3-2 roll on a nice jacket.

what is this style called, and where do i get it? not your typical brooks bros, i'd imagine.

I believe this is called (possibly among other names) the cutaway style. I'm not sure about RTW shirts having this style, but it is an option available from www.itailor.com.

A cutaway would be more spread than that. Hard to tell from the angle, but I'd venture to say that's just a regular English spread, albeit with a very soft collar that allows it curve nicely.

OP: Check the picture against the Cut Away 1-button and 2-button styles shown on the website.

Based on that site, a cutaway seems similar to a standard English spread...which at BB, for example, doesn't look anything like this one in photo above.

The one in the photo also seems to wear taller...like an Italian collar.

But most importantly I'm sensing this style may only come custom made, and not readily available at a retailer like BB.

Anyone know of any RTW makers that have this style?

This is NOT a cutaway. Search for RLPL Keaton and that is a cutaway.

This looks like a hybrid of an English/Italian spread.

the roll is probably from lack of collar bone/stand.

 

you need a long neck to afford that kind of collar height.

do we think these type of collars are definitely NOT available on RTW shirts?

only available from high end shirtmakers, using a specific type of napped fusing.
It is heavy while allowing the collar to roll
it may also have a slightly inverse curve along the front edge

How do you know this? What makes RLPL Keaton definitive for this style?

venturing a guess here, but it may be a '2 button collar' to get the height, customized to only have one button on it. I remember one of the WAYW guys saying he'd ordered a collar like that and what you posted is what I'm picturing.

Cutaway with curved collar stays?

I wear cutaway collars and this is defenitely NOT cutaway. It's near a spread collar but custom made with higher collars and longer collar points than normal. Note that high collars are not suitable for those with a short neck.
