Button-down Collar - Ganton Shirts

A button-down collar is a type of shirt collar characterised by two collar points that are anchored in place by small buttons located at the tips of the collar. This design feature gives the button-down collar a neat and tidy appearance, making it a classic and timeless style suitable for both formal and casual occasions.

One of the key features of the button-down collar is its soft lining and absence of collar stays. Collar stays are typically made of plastic or metal and are used to provide structure and stiffness to the collar. In contrast, the button-down collar is constructed with a soft lining and lacks collar stays, which results in a more relaxed and comfortable fit.

The collar is designed with a soft roll, a gentle curve in the collar that accommodates a tie with ease. This subtle detail adds a touch of refinement and sophistication to the collar when paired with a tie. However, the button-down collar can also be worn open for a more casual look.
