Choosing the right collar comes down to taste, but it’s also worth knowing the details that define how it can complement different tie knots and lapels.
THE POINT COLLAR
Best worn with a notch-lapel blazer, the point collar is one that works with or without a tie, depending on the occasion and dress code.
THE CUTAWAY COLLAR
A cutaway collar, like the point one, can be worn with or without a tie and is best paired with a peak-lapel blazer.
THE BUTTON-DOWN COLLAR
A smart collar, the button-down can be worn with knitted and woven ties tied in a four-in-hand knot.
THE GRANDAD COLLAR
Something of a comeback king, this collar style is designed to be worn without a tie to bring a relaxed aesthetic to tailoring.
THE BAR COLLAR
A modern tailoring fixture, the bar collar is a style best suited to formal occasions and looks the part worn with or without a tie.
