Our expert tailors & clothiers can assist you with all of the styling options and provide you with recommendations as what would be the best for you.
To custom style your shirts first determine the collar spread that you like. This means the distance between the collar points.
The classic collar spread is the number 3 spread. The distance between the collar points is approximately 3 inches . The number 3 spread frames the tie knot nicely and is not too wide or too narrow for most men’s faces.
In general you should keep in mind that a wider spread will add an appearance of more width to a persons face and a narrower width will make a persons face appear trimmer. Though fashion tends to dictate a certain look getting a collar style that is more flattering on you should be most important. (The 3 inch spread is also the classic spread for a Buttondown Collar style.)
Begin by selecting your Collar Spread. Browse through the collar styles.

Now that you have your Collar Spread chosen you’ll need to select 4 more collar style details. The Collar Point Length, the Front and Back Band Height, the Tie Space and the Collar Edge Stitching.
