Here's my new poll about collars.

I wear spreads for work but I will always prefer a nice bd. Button downs got my vote.

Torn between the spread collar and button down but I voted for the spread as that's what I use most of the time.

I like the extra wide spread collar by Modern Tailor.

All my dress shirts have spread collars.

Why is not cutaway an option? With some exceptions, it is the only collar that I use.

I have 1 button down and the rest of my shirts are spread.

Stupid to require a single answer. I have no doubt that most of us have at least two collar styles that we always use, if not more. For me they are medium spread and button down. I don't prefer one over the other, they each have their place.

Club collar for me. I love the look (for non-business occasions, of course).

Here's a picture of Sir David Frost from 1972 wearing a navy double breasted blazer, Turnbull & Asser spread collar shirt with trademark three-button cuffs, and blue necktie. Very classic and spiffy.

Man, I wish I had a bespoke shirt like he had on smile.gif
Do they have the exact fabric like the shirt Frost had on in this picture in the T&A archives?

Spread, cutaway.
Never a button-down.

You guys are missing out on the joys of button downs.

I would wear button downs exclusively if I could. I have some shirts that I happen to like with spread collars. I'm considering looking at some hidden button downs and seeing how I like them.

Not a fan of button down, spread for me.

I'll take advantage of this thread to ask a dumb question. Brooks Brothers has what they call an "Ainsley collar." I like it - it's not too pointed, not too wide. What do you call it?
