The Difference Between The Spread Collar And The Point Collar
Two of the most popular shirt collar styles are the spread collar and point collar.
The spread collar is the most universal dress shirt style, while the point collar leans more traditional. It may surprise you, but the collar points on these two are exactly the same in length, the points end up 5” away from one another on the spread whereas they finish much closer, 3″ apart, on the point.
What this means is the spread collar can visually widen the wearer’s face, while the point collar has been said to make one’s face appear longer (often quoted by Alan Flusser).
The spread collar also allows more room for a wider tie knot than the point collar, due to the extra space between the collar points.
