I have realized that I have very little knowledge when it comes to skjortkragar, above all in terms of the classical models. For me, business, full spread, cut-away, semi cut-away, classic and long sleeve a jungle. I have an eye on how the various collars look but not on things like when to use which (in other words, there are some occasions where man “shall” or “shall not” use a specific collar) as for slipsknutar to be applied to the various collars and which are considered to be more formal than others, etc. So I would be very grateful if I could get some guidance in kragdjungeln. Thanks in advance, Daniel.
Something generalized, it is possible to divide the most common skjortkragar in the evening turn-down, cutaway and button-down collar. Button-down shirt is easiest to distinguish with buttons that secure kragsnibbarna against lovely facility. Turndown and cutaway collar is much more similar. The characteristics of the cutaway collar to the distance between the kragsnibbarna is relatively wide. Sometimes so widely that the collar runs fully horizontally along the breast or even kragsnibbarna is angled backward from the neck. The term spread includes just surrender between kragsnibbarna and full spread is usually another name for cutawaykrage. Likewise, it is usually businesskragen a title of this collar.
Traditionally been governed mainly by the collar width formality between kragsnibbarna. A narrow width gives a more covered and uncommunicative impression which people feel slightly more formal in comparison with a wider cutaway collar. Today, this kind of stylistic graduation in many ways had its day, and it’s very hard to see a difference in formality between the turndown and the cutaway collar. Button-down collar is still considered a somewhat sportier model, which mostly suits worn with tie in combination to the preppystil. Less commonly used skjortkragar as a club collar, tab-and pincollar can be easily considered as somewhat old-fashioned and is therefore recommended for a slightly more modern style. To a businessklädsel perceived these collars easily as somewhat conservative.
Because a shirt is not a question of standard dimensions according to andyeducation, it is unfortunately not as simple as beskrivts above. Various manufacturers have their own forms and names for these. Some call it businesskrage other for cutaway. Therefore, these indications are only seen as guidelines, and for the choice between cutaway and turndown-collar is really just the collar width and kragsnibbarnas range that is relevant.
A simple rule of thumb is, the wider the bow tie transition is all the skjortkragen should be even wider. Some prefer a skinny bow tie to a cutaway, which of course is a matter of personal taste rather than set rules. To do the opposite and wearing a broad to a narrow bow tie collar, however, is not recommended without giving easy impression that it looks very compressed. It is also important to consider when selecting the stroke width jacket shirt. A narrow kind allows a relative width of shirt collar, but for a wide lapel, it is almost a must. A further tip is to use skjortkragen to transform the wearer’s proportions. A at the collar gives a broader overall impression, and likewise, a high collar make the person’s neck slightly shorter. However, it is not possible in General to say that a certain type of people dress in a particular cuff style, but this varies too much between different shirt makers.
It can seem confusing that the rules are so vague. At the same time is just that much of the fascination with skjortkragar. That small details can change appearance completely and that the shape is different so depending on the manufacturer. And actually, it’s pretty obvious. For no shirt makers with self-respect would ever submit to a standard collar?
