So many styles to choose from, where do I begin? The best place to start a custom made shirt is at the top, the collar. The collar is said to be the most important detail of the dress shirt. Selecting the best collar for yourself is more than just a design preference, it also about selecting the right collar style to frame your face. The general rule of thumb, select collars that balance out your facial features. Here are some of our tips for selecting the right collar based on your facial features.
|For square faces, opt for styles that elongate you face and soften your jaw-line. Select the long point collar, where the collar points are closer together. By drawing the eyes downwards, it add lengths and helps elongate you face.||For rectangular faces, choose styles that broaden your face and soften your jaw-line. We recommend a business collar, where collar points are slightly apart. Great option for creating balanced proportions.|
|For oval faces…lucky you, anything goes! Consider the business collar, this balances perfectly.||For oblong faces, create the illusion of a shorter face while making it appear broader. Try the full spread collar, where the collar points are further apart. This draws the eyes outward, making your face look a little wider.|
|For round faces, try to create the illusion of a longer, slimmer face. We recommend the long point collar, where the collar points are closer together. The narrow collar points helps create a slimmer appearance balancing out your round features.||For heart-shaped faces, add width at your jaw-line and chin. We recommend a full spread collar, where collar points are further apart. This is great for creating width at the jaw-line.|
