Button down collar

Shirts with a button down collar


The points of a button down collar should be attached to the front panels of the shirt by two buttons.  For a long time the button down collar was ‘not done’ but we are now seeing a successful comeback and this autumn it is seen as a variation of the modern collar.

This type of shirt was originally designed to be worn during a polo game and is therefore known as a more informal type of shirt. The buttons were designed to keep the collar points in the right place. The button down collar gives the shirt an informal and sporty look.

Shirt specialist Ledûb offers several variations on this collar such as the hidden button down where the buttons are hidden on the underside of the collar. The buttons aren’t visible but they ensure the collar remains neatly in place.

Do you want to dress informally? The Ledûb button down shirts are particularly suited to casual wear. The buttons give this shirt a sporty look. We advise you to always wear a button down shirt with the collar buttons done up.
