Cut-away Two button
This modern cut-away collar received its name because of its two buttons. Being a bit higher than regular cut-away collars, the collar ends are 9 cm. long and have sewn-in collar stays for a stiffer feel.
It was the Duke of Kent who first made the spread collar popular in the early 1900s, and more recently this collar type has gained momentum again. The Cut-away collar comes in several different varieties, with this classic one having the smallest spread.
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.
