We've worked to produce two Armoury collars, a classic spread and a generous button-down. The spread collar is slightly scalloped and sits at a slightly higher point on the neck, which makes it suitable with or without a tie. Our button-down collar is less dramatic and sits a bit lower, which helps it stand nicely when worn open under a jacket. Both are made with two layers of interlining, and this helps them maintain their shape over time.
We prefer a cuff that hugs the wrist, and this can be difficult to find on ready-to-wear shirts because manufacturers typically want to make shirts that fit (over) the largest variety of wrist sizes. The benefit of the conical cuff is that it tapers along with the sleeve; this is in contrast to the more common straight barrel cuff, which sits straight and loose.
We source our shirting fabric from Thomas Mason and Carlo Riva. Thomas Mason is a favorite of ours because we think it strikes a nice balance between a soft luxury feel and durability. Carlo Riva, on the other hand, utilizes the absolute finest cotton available, and the result is the finest and softest shirtings available.
