If you watch any news channel or American Idol you can’t help but notice the resurgence of the classic white shirt. Gone are the voluminous pinpoint button downs and broadcloth’s with narrow point collars. It’s the same fabric in new updated collars and silhouettes.
The new white shirt has a trimmer sleeve, 4-5 inch allowance throughout the body, a 3 1/4 inch British spread collar with classic french cuffs. This style compliments classic tailored clothing. For the gentleman who wants to sport a narrow lapel: choose a collar with a 2 3/4″ windsor collar with the trimmer sleeve option, and allow a 3-4 inch allowance over skin throughout the body. Coordinate this look with a thinner tie and you have created that Ryan Seacrest look.
This is the broadest range of fashion collars I can remember…imagine…smaller point collars are in…and so are wider spread collars!
Men’s fashions seem to be experiencing a refreshing renaissance.
