Button Down Collars

Soft Ivy Button-Down Collar


Invented by Brooks Brothers in 1896, the button-down collar features buttons that fasten the collar points of the shirt. It was originally used on sport shirts rather than dress shirts. While button-down collars are occasionally dressed up with suit and tie looks, it still remains a more casual option than spread or point collar shirts.

President Button Down


There are a range of button-down styles around, each having its own appeal. For those who want something a little more business oriented, the President Button Down collar, made with a fused construction, is very popular these days as it’ll stay the most crisp.

But many want something with a bit more expression and “roll” to the collar, like the button-down collars of Mercer & Sons and Brooks Brothers of yesteryear. These are made using a soft, unfused construction. Our Soft Ivy Button Down collar is designed for this crowd, seeking a comfortable-wearing, classic collar roll.

Along with the classic Soft Ivy-inspired button-down styles, smaller unfused button-downs have become really popular as of late. They work really well on heavier oxford cloths and flannel twills, and are best worn without a jacket. Our Colorado Button Down, pictured below is an example of this modern, casual collar style.
