Mandarin Collar Shirt

The Mandarin Collar is a short unfolded stand-up collared style represented on both shirts and jackets. Mandarin Collars start at the neckline and typically rise vertically two to five centimeters.

The Mandarin Collar design and style originated from Western interpretations of dresses worn by Mandarin Chinese people in Imperial China. A similar style, known as the Nehru collar originated from India. The style was named after former Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru who commonly wore this style of collar.  Mandarin Collars and Nehru Collarsare both grouped in the Band Collar family. The term Band Collar is used to describe shirts with a flat finish around the neckline.

Originally the band collar was designed to allow for a detachable collar – a design trait which has long been forgotten. Mandarin collars provide an adequate dress and style in formal and informal occasions.
