Men's Shirt COLLAR Types

You can say a lot about a guy from the shirt collar he's wearing

Men's shirt collars nowadays are shorter, narrower and more spread, allowing for the tie to go out after work, so they also can play at a less formal arena.
Designed to properly frame the face, accentuating the strengths while downgaming anything out of proportion, today is possible to play with different collar types, choosing the most flattening one.
