Although men's clothing is not as rich as girls' clothing, men can show their unique side through careful selection. Today's youth strive for uniqueness and difference, and they are no longer in trend-following era, so selection of clothes should be more focused on keeping up with times. First step today, SUITISM will teach you how to choose the right suit collar.
The shape of collar is place that has most influence on temperament of suit, besides tailoring. From discreet to commanding, casual to formal, it's all reflected in this collar shape.
There are three common types of suit collars: notch lapels, pistol lapels, and shawl collars. Each type of collar affects upper body differently and is suitable for different occasions.
Notched lapels are a type of blunt collar where bottom and top halves of collar are usually angled. It has a modifying effect on almost all body types. This is most common and widely used type of collar, and also least risky choice. You can't go wrong no matter how you wear it.
The collar is divided into upper and lower parts, area of the lower half is larger than area of the upper half, which surrounds upper half and extends upwards. The lapel collar can visually stretch upper body horizontally, which is very easy to make people feel that the chest is wide and aggressive, and it is mainly used in formal occasions.
The collar, also known as broadsword collar, is a single, streamlined piece. The function of shawl collar is to reshape lines of upper body and visually elongate it vertically so that upper body does not appear too thick or too strong. It is suitable for dinner parties, weddings and important ceremonies, but is not suitable for everyday wear.
