We believe in having a mix of collar styles at Hugh & Crye. From deep cutaways to classic points and everything in between, we’ve got a style that works for any occasion you can think of.
Other sites or menswear bloggers might say that you should get a collar that matches your face. But this is bogus. You should get a collar that matches your own personal style and not worry about following someone else’s rules. The most important thing is to have a shirt that fits, everything else is personal preference.
WHAT SETS HUGH & CRYE COLLARS APART
Interlining is an extra piece of material sewn in that gives a collar extra structure and a stiffer feel that holds up to repeated washings and ironings.
Most mass-brand dress shirts are only lightly interlined if at all because it is an expensive and time-consuming production process.
Collar stays are the little pointed piece of plastic or metal that helps keep your collars from curling or rolling up during wear resulting in a sharper, more professional look.
Lots of other supposed dress shirt makers don't use collar stays because of the extra hassle involved in manufacture. The collar actually has to be constructed with a slot on the underside of the collar where the stay can be inserted.
H&C Collar Types
Our tall-spread collar is our classic American style spread collar. It’s an incredibly versatile collar that works great professionally or casually and with a variety of tie knots and sizes. What really sets our tall-spread collar apart is that we gave it a bit of extra height which gives it a great presence particularly under a jacket. Check out our selection of Tall-Spread collar shirts.
Our cutaway collar is our go-to collar style because it works for everything. It looks good with any pattern, color or fabric and in any situation, dressed up or down. We love it because it gives a subtle rakishness to any look that no other style has. Check out our selection of cutaway collar shirts.
Our point collar is probably our most traditional collar, but it’s certainly not boring. We carry a variety of point collar styles--from our classic tall-point, which is great buttoned up with a tie, to our casual washed point. Check out our selection of point collar shirts.
Our button-down collar evolved after a tremendous amount of trial and error trying to find the right proportions. We landed on a medium sized collar that walks the line between modern and classic perfectly. It has just the right amount of interlining to have a perfect roll when worn casually or with a tie for a more preppy look. Check out our selection of button-down collar shirts.
Our club collar was inspired by the early 20th century, when rounded Eton or "club" collars were considered a classic mainstay of a man’s wardrobe. Ours is simple and classic and has just enough interlining so that it sits perfectly under a jacket with a tie. We think it’s a great twist on a traditional shirt. Check out our selection of club collar shirts.
Deep Cutaway Collar
Our deep cutaway collar is a bolder take on our regular cutaway. It’s a larger collar with a very pronounced spread. It favors fuller tie knots but can be left unbuttoned for a debonair look. It also looks great done in a contrast white. We prefer it for occasions when a little peacocking doesn’t hurt. Check out our selection of deep cutaway collar shirts.
Our semi-spread collar is one of our favorite styles for dressier occasions. Think of it as a more traditional alternative to our cutaway styles. It has a wider collar blade that is particularly well-suited for wear with tie under a jacket. Check out our selection of semi-spread collar shirts.
