7 Band-Collar Shirts That Will Make You Stop Popping Your Collar

7 Band-Collar Shirts That Will Make You Stop Popping Your Collar: The Sartorialist

The Sartorialist

According to Juicy J, “Bandz a make her dance.” The half of Three6 Mafia who appears on Katy Perry tracks was referencing the bands used to wrap stacks of cash before dispensing with the bills at the strip club. But one would be forgiven for thinking that band collar shirts were responsible for eliciting a reaction from the fairer sex given the sharp selection available right now.

The band collar, also known as the Mandarin collar because of its origins in imperial China, doesn’t fold over the way most shirt collars do. Instead, the short collar stands straight up. While the most popular fan of the shirt style may be the James Bond villain Dr. No, today the band collar deserves a place in any stylish man’s closet. Buttoned up and tucked in it can be worn with a suit (just DO NOT wear a tie with it). Unbuttoned and untucked it looks effortlessly cool.

We found the best band collar shirts out there. Check them out.
