Button down vs. Mini button down Collar
There is a clear winner here… (depending on you ;))
As you may have guessed, whether or not to choose a button down vs. mini button down depends on you. Are you a shorter dude, in a smaller frame? Then a mini button down is a great choice. Are you an average to above average guy? Then the regular button down is a great choice.
Something to definitely consider, is that ties work much better with a regular button down vs. a mini button down.
Here’s some more specific info regarding the two collar types:
Regular Button Down
Typically this collar is more casual and is matched with corresponding casual fabrics
(think oxfords, flannels and ginghams). A button down collar pairs well with a single button barrel cuff.
The Mini Button Down
This is a more modern take on the classic button down collar.
Perfect for someone who is a little more fashion forward. A mini button down collar pairs well with a single button or double button barrel cuff.
