Beginning in the mid 1800s, club collars were an integral part of the Eton College dress code. Seeking to be perceived as a member of an exclusive club, men sought to wear this unique style, hence the name “club”. Eventually the style was adopted by the masses, relieving the collar of its exclusiveness. Club collars are still popular today. Worn with a collar pin to hold down the collar points which in turn allows the tie to push up and out. Its a classic touch that can elongate the look of a man’s neck but fair warning to those of long necks, proportions for this collar is key! The collar’s naturally shorter which means a man with a long neck should go for a longer collar to even out the look.
