SPREAD COLLAR STYLE GUIDE
What are the differences between the spread collars that you offer?
Windsor Spread - Popularized by the Duke of Windsor in the 1930's, this collar has a 4½ inch spread. This type of collar is used to accommodate larger knotted neckties such as the Windsor Knot. (Click here to learn how to tie this knot) . The Windsor spread is the most formal of all collar styles.
English Spread - A wider spread than the Windsor Spread Collar with longer collar points.
Cutaway Spread - Our widest spread between the collar points for an almost horizontal stance. Use a bulky tie know like the Windsor or half Windsor.
Extreme Cutaway Spread - Cut and angled back even more so than our Cutaway collar, the extreme cutaway works well with a tie tied in a full Windsor knot for a formal look. It also works well casual without a tie.
Park Avenue - Not as wide as the Windsor Spread Collar but more than the Straight Collar, the Park Avenue has shorter collar points than the Straight. It is a nice compromise between the Straight and Spread Collars.
Varsity Spread - Also known as the "Pat Riley Collar", this collar has a spread of 4 inches. The main difference with this type of spread collar is that the inner edge of the collar is curved.
Jermyn Street Spread - A collar based on a traditional British look and named after the birthplace of classic men’s fashion, Jermyn Street in London, England. It has the same 4 ½” spread as our Windsor spread collar but with points cut a little shorter and a slight curve to the shape. With the exception of our custom program, all of our shirts made with a Jermyn Street collar will not have a pocket for a clean look. This shirt wears great with tie tied in a Windsor knot or without a tie for a more casual look.
