Club Collar

Provenance: Originally part of Eton College's dress code, the club (also known as a golf collar) was popular in the early decades of the 20th century.

Who's making them: Brooks Brothers, $79 (left); Patrik Ervell, $230; Hugh & Crye, $85

Cutaway Collar

Provenance: Also known as a spread (though a cutaway is often wider), it was made popular by such British aristocrats as the Duke of Windsor.

The Comeback Collars

As the style pendulum shifts slightly from hardier, workwear influenced pieces back to a more refined, tailored approach to menswear, it was only a matter of time before throwback styles like traditional shirting collars returned. The club collar and the cutaway are the two most popular styles currently enjoying a revival.
