Greetings all,

This marks my first topic in the professional fora. I'd love to learn how to create the sort of precisely tailored, very high starched collar worn by the likes of Eustace Tilley, or Karl Lagerfeld. Really though, it is more of a need; I see it as an essential part of the evolution of my personal style and business to eventually be able to shape a collar or turnback cuff to any form my imagination can conjure.

I note in a documentary, Lagerfeld Confidential that his collars attach from the back of the neck. Some further research revealed they are made for him by Hilditch & Key

This style is of notable difference to the typical vintage detached collars we see about in men's shops and vintage stores about. These collars are pinned in the front.

Please distinguish in any reply which sort of collar you are referring to.

If anyone possesses any literature on the make of these collars (and cuffs) or themself possesses the knowledge then I would be enamored to receive it somehow.

Kind regards

no different from a traditional band collar
held in place with both front and back studs.
are you making the removable collar rather then buying a premade collar?
if yes, then you just need to heavily fuse the collar.
we fuse both pieces of fabric.
If you are in NYC, you are welcome to see how it is done.
