They could have experimented with colours, patterns or fabrics, but the style statement they wanted to create had to be dripping with exclusivity yet symbolise a perfect gentleman. The ultimate style they created was dubbed the 'club collar'.
It became all the rage in the early 1900s, not just because of its graceful style but also because of its practical design that made it convenient with a collar pin. Over the years, the club collar has lost its exclusivity and perhaps its popularity, but it is still an essential for sartorially conscious men.
