Designers’ new spread-collared dress shirts will have you going wide all season.

 

When the basis of your workweek uniform is a button-down and tie, standing out from the other suits can be complicated—unless you’re George Clooney. Luckily, a new combo is making waves: the spread-collared shirt and Windsor-knotted tie.
The wide-open space between the shirt’s two collar tips serves as the perfect frame for the hefty knot, which draws attention to your fashion expertise— and upwards to your clean-shaven face and perfectly-coifed ‘do. For perennially-sharp gents long “up-in-the-air” about how to make a statement, consider the pairing your perfect match.
