When you buy a dress shirt, you are normally stuck with that particular style. But Allen Young’s shirts for men can be customized over and over again, with interchangeable collars and cuffs.

Allen Young makes the most versatile shirts you’ll ever see
  • How long do dress shirts last? A good-quality shirt should last for many years — perhaps even decades with care.
  • What are the different kinds of collar on men’s dress shirts? There are many types, but the most popular include the Spread, Straight, Button-down, and English.
  • Can you change the collar on a dress shirt? Not usually, but you can with Allen Young dress shirts. These high-quality garments are totally customizable.

Men’s fashion hasn’t always been a hotbed of creativity. Styles change over time, but when it comes to formal attire, we are still wearing variations of the suit and tie. This classic look is timeless, but it doesn’t always offer too much room for personal flair.

That changes with the new range of dress shirts from Allen Young. These beautiful garments are one of the cool gifts for men that is crafted to a high standard, and they have a neat added feature: you can switch the collar and cuffs. This means that you can change your look in seconds and make your shirts last longer.

How do you customize a dress shirt?

Good question. To find the answer, let’s take a closer look at the anatomy of a dress shirt.

Most dress shirts are made up of various sections which are all sewn together. There’s the front, the back, the pleats, the yoke, the sleeves, the collar, and the cuffs. When you buy such a garment, you are committing to a single style — whether that’s white cuffs or a button-down collar.
