This is the superior model with removable collar stays. It is considered to be a fancy collar by many connoisseurs. This popular classic collar belongs to the family of full-spread collars. It is very popular since it makes the shirt’s front part more visible. As the name already gives away, the collar ends are more spread out than on a regular business collar.

To keep in mind when designing your shirt
This collar works well both with and without a tie. When choosing a tie, a Windsor knot fits perfectly to this wider collar. If you have a somewhat narrower or longer face, this is the collar for you. A collar from the “Full spread” family is great choice together with a contrasting fabric.
Do not wear this collar together with jackets with too narrow lapels and shoulders in order to avoid a too extreme look. Otherwise, this collar type is suitable for everything from a pinstriped office suit to an everyday jacket. Preferably choose a poplin, pinpoint or twill fabric to go with this collar. Collar stays should always be removed before the shirt is washed to minimize the risk of marking the collar.
