Some models of shirt collars offered by a German company named "Der Hemdenbauer". For some reason I did not find any website, but this might be the address :

Hemdenbauer Inh. H.Grimm
Hauptmarkt 17
90403 Nürnberg
Telefon: (0911) 24 29 89 98

It would be smashing if somebody could provide the English names for the different models, maybe even the Italian ones.

Wonderful, thanks! Never heard of "side-button" collars before.

I wonder to what extent the curves along the collar edges in front reflect an effort to render their curves during wear, as opposed to the actual shape of the pattern?

I.e., the curved shapes of the first ones, Kingkragen 030, 028, 007(!) seem clearly to be an attempt to suggest a straight-edged collar's softness, as well as how they would tend to fall on the figure (long points bending slightly outwards, front edges curving slightly around an imagined tie…), as opposed to indicating the actual cut shapes at the front and points.

But 037 Kent and several others appear to actually have sharply curved front edges just at the top where they meet the stand…

BTW, as far as I know (from what I've been told by a bespoke shirtmaker), collar names are "marketing", and proprietary to each manufacturer. So there are no "english translation", as each shirtmaker has his own names
