Face Frame

Ever wonder what "spread" or "tie space" meant? Ok, well here is a plain and simple diagram of a collar with explanations- so you'll never wonder again.
Check back tomorrow for a guide to picking the right collar for you. After all, it is a "frame for your face," as we like to say.

1. Collar Points - The tips of the collar.
2. Collar Point Length - The distance from the Collar Points to where they meet the Collar Band.
3. Collar Band - the piece of fabric that wraps around the neck.
4. Collar Height - The height of a folded collar as it fits on the neck.
5. Tie Space - The distance between the top of the folded collar parts when the shirt is buttoned.
6. Spread - The distance between Collar Points.
