What the heck is a double collar shirt and why should you care?

by Nate Gee December 02, 2014

Alright well dressed men, looking for a way to spice up your wardrobe? Maybe something that you can utilize dressed up, dressed down, in the workplace, and out on the town?

If that sounds like something you might be into, do not forget these three words - double collar shirt.

So what exactly is a double collar shirt? The double collar layers of contrasting colors or patterns are right on top of one another, creating an accent that will no doubt separate you from your single collared peers.

The idea isn’t a new one, but it offers an easily added element, a bit of flair if you will, to any button down shirt. Clashing combinations, such as a solid white or black over collar, on a striped or checkered shirt and under collar usually make for the best double collar options. Hundreds of different color and pattern options exist, and the only way to find out what works for you is to try different double collar combinations.

Why should you care?

Another benefit of the double collar shirt is all of the options it gives you. A slim or tailored fit designer double collar shirt is the perfect center garment of a first date outfit, or paired with a tie that goes with the accent of the under collar, a great way to make a positive first impression in an interview.

The clashing color or pattern combinations of your two collars will provide you with almost unlimited accessorizing options.

We already covered the tie in a more formal setting, but other options include a sweater or overcoat, a cashmere scarf in the winter months, or even a cap. The double collar shirt can just as easily be worn casually, by rolling up the sleeves and untucking the shirt bottom.

The double collar designer shirt is a quick and easy way to give your fashion street cred a serious boost. If you are looking for a clean, strong look with just a hint of that European flair, look no further than the double collar shirt this season.
