How To Choose A Shirt Collar That Compliments Your Face

Joel Deakin, founder of George & King, explains the 8 collar styles available to customers purchasing their custom shirts.
Buying a custom tailored shirt and not quite sure which collar to choose? The secret is to choose a collar that best compliments the shape of your noggin.

#1 Regular Pointed Collar

For blokes with a round face or a shorter neck, try a pointed collar. The steeper vertical slant will give your face a sense of length and definition.

#2 Square Collar

If your face is neither excessively round nor extraordinarily angular, opt for a square collar. Its medium height works for most everyone.

#3 Spread Collar

For the taller guys out there, and those of us with a longer triangular face, you want a spread collar with a low, wide stance. This collar will help soften your face and create a more balanced look.

#4 Wide Spread Collar

As above, but particularly appropriate for men who wear wide tie knots.

#5 Button Down Collar

#6 2-Button Pointed Collar
