Both the points of collar are away from each other making the top collar button and adjacent area quite visible. Spread collar has long been a favorite of well-dressed men. However, spread collar dress shirt is not appropriate for all men. Only men with thin face should wear this collar as it projects the image of normal face. The horizontal shape of spread collar balances the thin shape of men.
