Why Bespoke Shirts? - Page 5

As promised, a decent photo of an Italian Collared shirt:
In France this is called a DANTON collar. Police/army uniforms have this type of collar. And this is rather a collar for women's shirts (chemisier) in fact as worn without any tie. Italian collars are wide spread collar in Paris.

I do not speak French. Is Danton a French word or the name of a shirt designer who made a collar like this?

I don't think so. Danton is a politician.

Well, maybe there's a connection after all.  What it could possibly be, I have no idea. http://images.google.com/images?....+Search

I think that people may have worn this type of collar in France during the Revolution

No, they wore stocks and cravats.  The Incroyables dressed like English squires.

Thank you both for the clarification. Frankly, I don't know where the "Italian Collar" designation came from either. I have client's patterns going back to the '60's where Italian Collar is used.

Oh. Right. I mean a stiff collar, often made of whale bone. The ancestor of the celluloid, detachable wing collar.

You're right. It does look similar - but I think I see a button.
