What is a Band Collar Shirt?
First, let's begin with an introduction to what a band collar shirt is. The men's band collar shirt has been an icon of statement dressing since its 1920s origin from detachable collars. These collars could be removed separately to change the shirt's look or laundered independently. Wearing the shirt without the detachable collar gave rise to a classic menswear staple.
This style goes by several nicknames: band collar shirt, collarless shirt, and grandad collar shirt. The only distinguishing characteristic from a standard men's button-up shirt is the neck band. The main difference in band collar styles lies in how the collar lays against your neck. American styling does not stand up on your neck (Nehru and Mandarin "Asian" collars stand up). The band is 1" wide or less, soft, and pliable without stiff interfacing inside the collar.
