We wanted to put together a solid guide to help you determine which dress shirt collar is best for you

The Spread Collar

The spread collar is an excellent choice, and is one of our more popular collars at Woodies.

The spread collar is a versatile option. It looks great buttoned up with a suit and tie, but can look just as good unbuttoned and dressed down after work.

A spread collar can be paired with a single button or double button barrel cuff or a French cuff.

The Button Down Collar

The button down collar is the quintessential American collar.

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 Widespread Collar

The widespread collar (as you may have guessed) is our widest collar.

The widespread collar is almost always worn with a suit or jacket because of how beautifully it sits under the lapels. Ties are often worn with this collar, but are not a necessity. The widespread collar is typically more formal than the others.

A widespread collar pairs well with a double button barrel cuff or French cuff.

The Pinpoint Collar

The pinpoint collar is similar to the spread collar, but has a less spread.

The pinpoint collar is our most conservative option and coincidently is not our most popular collar.

A pinpoint collar pairs well with a single button barrel cuff or French cuff.
