  • ENGLISH COLLAR

    A narrow collar whose points are attached to one another by a buttoned tab.  It lifts the tie knot to create an elegant and sophisticated outfit. 

  • AMERICAN COLLAR

    Also called the button-down collar, it's recognizable by its points that are buttoned to the shirtfront either on the top or on the underside of the points. It has a narrow opening so that it can be worn either with or without a tie.

  • ITALIAN COLLAR

    Has points that can be either slightly or widely spread apart. Wear it with a large tie knot that suits the collar spread. The Italian collar gives you an elegant and sophisticated style.

  • FRENCH COLLAR

    Also called the classic collar, it’s versatile due to its narrow spread that can be worn with or without a tie. It is perfect for chic and casual outfits. 

  • OFFICER COLLAR

    This is a small, narrow collar without points in which the two edges meet and are fastened by a button.  It's worn without a tie or bow tie.

  • CUTAWAY COLLAR

    Considered formal, the cutaway collar is synonymous with elegance and refinement. It’s the collar to wear with bow ties or even an ascot for sure-fire chic.

  • TRICK

    In order to be sure that the collar isn’t too tight, you should be able to fit one finger between the collar and your neck.

  • ONE-BUTTON CUFF

    This is by far the most popular. Also called the classic single button,
    it’s ideal for any occasion. 

  • DOUBLE-BUTTONED CUFF

    This is a classic cuff, but with two buttons.  This makes the cuff’s width adjustable, giving you the option to wear it tighter or looser.

  • FRENCH CUFFS

    Also known as a double cuff, this cuff is fastened with cufflinks 
    and adds a refined air to shirts.

  • STEPS

    1.      Place the tape measure around your neck.
    2.      Measure the neck leaving enough space for two fingers to fit comfortably inside the measuring tape.
    3.      This measurement should range between 14 and 18 inches and determines the shirt size you'll take.
    4.       Then, measure the length of your arm starting from the centre of your neck, passing over the shoulder until you reach the wrist. This measurement decides whether you should go for a regular or long style.
    5.       Regular styles range from 33 to 35 inches, while long styles range from 35 to 38 inches.

  • TRICK

     For any questions you may have, you can refer to our size chart.

  • STEPS

    1. Start by ironing the shirt’s collar and sleeves. It’s important to start at the centre of the collar and move toward the points.

    2. Next, move on to the shoulders. Use the pointed tip of the ironing board to press the front and then the back of the shoulder. Repeat this operation for the other shoulder.


    3. Now iron the front and the back of the shirt, moving from the hem towards the collar.

    4. Be sure to iron in between the buttons. It’s important to not iron over the buttons in order to achieve the best result.

    5. Immediately hang the shirt on a hanger after you’ve ironed it and button the first three buttons so that the shirt continues to look its best.
