What is a Band Collar Shirt?
First, let’s start with an introduction of what a band collar shirt is. The men’s band collar shirt has been a men’s icon for statement dressing since its 1920’s origination from detachable collars. The style has many nicknames: band collar, collarless, and grandad collar. The only characteristic is the neck band on the shirt lays flat against you, it does not stand up on your neck (Nehru and Mandarin collars stand up). The band is 1” wide or less, and is soft and pliable without a stiff interfacing inside the collar.
