This type of collar certainly adds personality to your look and, despite it is designed to better show the tie, it is commonly used even without a tie.


If you decide to wear it with a tie, I’d suggest a thicker knot. This is because of the wide space left between the collar and the thicker knot will better fit between the two points.


Another great characteristic about a cutaway collar dress shirt is the versatility.

Although it seems to be made for wearing a tie, this type of collar looks great even without a tie. In fact, because of the way it is cut, it will “stand up” without folding. Whether you wear it with a jacket or with just a sweater, the cutaway collar won’t let you down!


If you’re in the market for a casual dress shirt, you should consider the cutaway collar as your first choice. You will be amazed how easy it can be worn with a tie. Dress up and dress down without too many questions!


Typically though, a cutaway collar dress shirt is advised for slimmer gentlemen, because it renders the overall visual of your look around the neck a little more robust.
