Shark Collar Shirts

While the summer is endless to be desired in Paris, let us return for a moment on the way to wear the shirts in hot weather, a few decades before. To be more precise, go back to the 1930s and travel to the United States.

At that time, the blouses, perhaps as a result of military orders (it would not surprise me) invent a new collar, a transformable model, both to wear buttoned and open. And even better, does not open as stupidly as a classic collar, it flares out.

Its design is ingenious although a little heavy industrially speaking. The collar instead of being in two parts (fallout and collar foot) is in one. And better still, the inside of the collar continues along the buttonholes, down to the bottom of the shirt, as on a jacket where one finds the trim at the edge. It is therefore a complex model to develop, because the neck is made in a very long piece, which must withstand the curvature of the neck while breaking well in two, to simulate collapse fall. The more technicians will understand. Below, on the left the transformable model, on the right the classic collar.

So it was invented. Marvelous of the marvels, it corresponded to the taste of the time focused on ironing and housekeeping perfection. These ladies therefore crushed the collars with the full force of their iron. It can be tempted with a modern shirt, but the effect is less clear than with a transformable collar, otherwise called shark collar. I do not know where this name comes from. Perhaps because of the very long peaks …?

This aesthetic flourishes! The first jackets also took advantage of this cut derived from the collars of casual shirts featured on http://www.mensshirtsshop.com/best/mens-casual-shirts/.

The second world war and the GIs spread this style throughout the world. In the 1950s, the Hawaiian shirts cut were the symbol of the American Way of Life, ideal for relaxing under a parasol.

American students and the Ivy League style also propelled the aesthetics of the shark collar shirt worn over the jacket. Ah a whole pace! I remain reserved in this fashion. Perhaps an inspired creator will make it again use …?

Still, as the 1970s, the use fell into disuse. Apart from spicy environments: horse racing bettors, casino tenants, film producers, etc. In the 80s, this pace made you even look like a pariah. Or an old billionaire.

A tailor who trains me always dresses in the summer. And I smile every time on seeing him: a real lord descended from his yacht!
