Pretty good
I ordered a 15-15.5" collar, but I received a nearly 17" collar. I was very easily able to get it tailored down, but overall, it looks nice and gets me nothing but good compliments. Id recommend that you order a size down if you would like the collar to fit a bit more snug.

Nice
Really nice collar. Found that the collarless shirt I had wasn't made for a detachable collar so just added a button and was able to fit this collar to it, no problems. I found the sizing to be generous as an L fitted comfortably when I'd normally need XL.

Buttons are too small
The button holes for this collar are too small. It will cost more to return it and get nothing in return. Not happy with product.

Collar works fine
I had a band collared tux shirt that I wanted to add this collar to, to change the look. Collar worked fine after I figured out the at the entire collar goes on the outside of the band collar. Just needed to sew a small button to the back of the shirt to hold it in place. You may also need to carefully cut the button holes on the front of the collar to make it big enough to fit a collar stud through depending on the size of your stud, but they come sewn small so there is a little bit of room to make them bigger without cutting through the button hole stitching if you are careful.

Kind of disappointed. We've ordered collars from England that were MUCH more starched/heavier. The price on these should have been a giveaway. They're nice if you're not looking for an EXTREMELY starched collar.

Just what I needed
As a priest, I rarely wear a tie, but have several shirts that are to be used with detachable clergy collars. This spear point collar was just the thing I needed for the once-every-few-years when I do need a tie. I used heavy starch to get it nice and crisp and it was perfect. Now I don't need to have extra "civilian" shirts, just a couple of "civilian" collars!

Not The Stiff Starched Collar You'd Expect
I was expecting this collar to be a starched stiff collar, which is what I was looking for. It's definitely not. The collar arrives unstarched. Also, the sizing is way off. The size chart shows a size "L" is for a 16"-16.5" neck. I have a 16" neck and ordered the size "L". The collar was very large and would easily fit a 18" neck. The service, from Historical Emporium, was fantastic though. My order shipped extremely fast and was well packaged.

Very Good Collar
This collar is a nice little accessory. It fits pretty well with the shirts I customized, though it doesn't stay up as much as I had hoped. I was under the impression that the collar would be starched straight, but it worked well nevertheless. Thus far, it's been a pretty nice conversation piece, and it's easy to put on, too. Nicely done, Historical Emporium!

High Stand Collar
The collar is almost perfect. The size is just right, but there are two things I wish were different. 1. The button holes were too small for the studs I also purchased, so I had to cut them larger, cutting into the threads which protect the hole from tearing. That was nerve-wracking because I was under time pressure and didn't have time to reorder in case I cut too deeply. 2. I wish the collar came starched.

Lovely and soft
These are lovely collars. They aren't brittle or stiff but they still have some body. I wish we could have ordered them to the 1/2" sizing instead of a range. I have to alter several to fit my shirts.

Perfectly Adapted to Fit the Shirts
This collar came safely wrapped so no creasing occurred. It matches the HE shirts perfectly, only had some minor sizing issues (now solved), but that should resolve as soon as you order from Historical Emporium again, which I will most certainly do! Next time I will know my correct sizing.

Stand Up Collar
Again, this collar, like the wing tip, waaaaay too big. In order to get correct sleeve length in shirt had to take a neckband that was enormous. Adjusted both the neckband and subsequent collars down to 16 1/2 to fit. Rated a 3 because suggested size doesn't fit. Well constructed collar, though, no complaint with the material nor it's construction.

Tiny holes
The quality of the collar is fine, but two things to be aware of when ordering: 1. Be careful about sizing. I ordered an XL based on the size charts and it was too big. It ended up working okay with my own shirt and I was able to mask the extra size with a cravat. 2. The button holes in the front of the collar are TINY -- they actually are not "button holes" as no button could ever fit through them. I also tried a different cufflinks and a tux shirt stud, none of which fit through the little holes. The H.E. web site mentions a "collar stud" in passing (not included) but I did not see that or even realize such a thing existed. Luckily I found a stray antique stud that happened to have a retractible back which just barely fit through to keep the collar closed.

Great Collar
I bought this collar to go with the Fairchild shirt. It looks wonderful. The hole in the front for the stud took a little working, it was very stiff, but once I did and undid it a few times it loosened up nicely. I really don't understand why detachable collars went out of fashion. I plan of buying several more.

Quality collar
I am so glad I found Historical Emporium. I had been looking for a detachable wing collar for a long time. The old ones are almost impossible to find any more and even if you do get a stock of them, they wear out pretty quickly. These collars are perfect. Great service. Thanks

A handsome product
I bought this collar to add a realistic detail to a butler costume. It looks very good with the suit and is styled with two holes, one for a larger stud (I sewed a button onto a more modern shirt) in the back and smaller holes for plain men's collar studs in the front. It does not come starched and works fine without stiffening. It looks handsome with bow or straight ties. It arrived within days of purchase and am very happy with it, as are my fellow cast-mates.

Nice quality but...
The tips were stitched down making it impossible to use correctly. The other problem is that it measures a full 2 inches too big to attach to a standard collarless shirt. order according to the neck measurement of your shirt. the actual size column tells it like it is so match it up to your shirt measurement. I had to exchange mine for a smaller size.

Great item indeed! (only choose size with care)
This collar came safely wrapped so no creasing occurred. It matches the HE shirts perfectly, only had some minor sizing issues (now solved), but that should resolve as soon as you order from Historical Emporium again, which I will most certainly do! Next time I will know my correct sizing. I like the way it came, not too soft and not too heavily starched, so you can choose how you like it. The wing tips are sewn on, which can and should be changed (carefully/professionally) after arrival. Otherwise it is hard to use it with a necktie.

Collars are too big for the size
The collar quality is what I expected for the price. The issue is with the sizing. They are not sized correctly. They are too big for the collar size so I cannot wear them. The shipping cost was more than the collars so I'll just toss them out. They can't shrink enough to wear so it is money wasted. If they had fit I'd have given a 4, but under the circumstances 2 stars is generous.

This is a good solid collar but the wingtips are sewn and don't leave much room for anything other than an adjustable puff tie to be slid through. Good thing you can buy Puff ties from here too.

Flashy Accessory
The addition of a winged tip collar provides a distinctive bold look to your dress. The collarís material quality and craftsmanship are first rate. Because the wingtips are sewn down on this collar, it doesnít wear well with several of the cravat and tie styles, providing you want the wingtips over the band. I cut mine loose.

Good, but watch size
Good quality, although you'll need a razor blade if you want the wing tips to stick up in an authentic way. Also, you may need to order TWO sizes smaller than you think unless you're using it for the actual Emporium shirt. I have a 16.5 neck and needed to go to the smallest size for my normal collarless shirt. Kind of surprising, as I tend to buy in the extra-large end of regular dress shirts. So, do question the size chart if you got your shirt somewhere else. On the other hand, it's nice to be a "small" for once in my life...

Surprised
This item looked good but the tips of the wings were stitched down and that made fishing the hook end of the tie hard. Also, making suggestions about which shirts match well with the collars would be helpful. The collar and shirt I ordered were not ideally matched. The shirt had a rear loop when the collar wanted a button. They worked well with a bit of fussing and some way too young ladies were saying sassy things so the image worked. Who knew?

How grandpa got dressed
This is my second shirt from Historical Emporium, but my first collarless. With it I bought three different collars (in the same size) and some collar studs. Quality-wise the shirt is well made and perfectly satisfactory. Ordering the right size without an actual fitting can be hit or miss, but the shirt fitted very well using the Emporium's guides to measure up. I didn't need the collar studs. The shirt has a button at back of the collar and comes with a stud at the front. Collar studs aren't visible under neck-wear, either; still, it's nice to have a set to my own taste and small items get lost, so spares are good. Wearing it - now there's a small learning curve! I hadn't had a detachable-collared shirt since the air force cadets (way back in the '60s) issued us lads mismatched WW2 uniform equipment, and mine never fitted! This shirt and the collar did, both me and each other. But how did grandpa get dressed without the help of a gentleman's gentleman? I found, after fruitless contortions, the easy way is to attach the collar by the back button, and one end of the collar to the collar stud, but leave the other end free. Pull the shirt on (it only unbuttons part way!) then do up the shirt and attached collar. Then add your period neck-wear. And a vest/waistcoat. A gentleman never wore his shirt fully exposed. Finally, wear it in public. Be ready for conversations. Possibly, ask Historical Emporium for a supply of their cards to hand out.

This is a wonderful dress shirt. The size runs very true and it is beautifully made. I purchased the wing-tipped collar to go with the shirt and it looks fantastic. I wear this shirt as part of my regular rotation of shirts I wear to work. I'm planning to purchase a variety of collars, so it will be like getting multiple shirts for the price of one. I love it!

Well crafted, great period cut
This resembles a good 19th century shirt that I use for daywear as well as formal evening attire. Had some sizing issues at the start, but Historical Emporium sent me a replacement and this time they fit better, just had my tailor have a slight hand over the collar. Since it was my first order I wasn't so familiar with the sizing table, but for my future orders I am now perfectly prepared. Will order from Historical Emporium again!

Fairchild Shirt Suggestion
The Fairchild shirt is a very fine product; however, although I take a large shirt in the chest and arm length area, my neck is not a large. I had to take the shirt to a tailor who sewed another button hole into the collar about a half inch in from the original. I would recommend that the manufacturer do the same, thus giving the customer the option of insuring a perfect fit. Since I ordered a large stand up collar for the shirt, the tailor did the same to the collar. All in all, everything worked out fine and it goes great with my swallow tail coat, vest and homburg. My lady friend and I should make a dashing couple at the San Diego Gas Lamp Gathering this September.

Great Choice!
Much to my surprise, I've come to the conclusion that if you only have one shirt in your Victorian kit, this is definitely the one to choose. With the detachable collars it's like having 4 shirts at bargan basement prices. The quality is definitely there, but it is the versatility that makes it stand out. A good example of this is when I indulge another Victorian fashion, a love of all things Scottish, and it's time to attend a "Burns Knicht," it fits right in with a bit of lace pined to the cuffs, and a jabard pined at the throat. Then with a change of hat, collar, tie and coat, it works for the piano recital of 1860's American music, held in a historic house of the era. I really recommend this shirt!

This is the one shirt I thought would be the most versatile. The Fairchild looks nice and fits well. If the emporium offered shirts like the Fairchild in a variety of colors (like light blue, peach, striped etc.) combined with their attachable collars, this would be the best shirt ever. Right now it's only the best shirt.
