Washable Gothic Collar - 2 1/8"

This collar is machine and hand washable. The garment will maintain its integrity and stiffness even after many washes. Please refer to the Washable Stiff Garments page on this website.

The Washable "Gothic" Collar is an exclusive design by RJW Shirts. This collar comes from the vintage range of Cluett, Peabody & Co Inc - the mega collar company of Troy, New York.  The Gothic was released on the American market in 1915. The Gothic design employs the unique feature of a convex centre-front opening. This unique opening allows a tie knot to be inserted without stressing the collar edges outwards too severely. Vintage neckwear was many time thinner and lighter than modern neckties, therefor the best neckwear to wear with this collar are ones that produce a small knot when tied. The Gothic measures 2 1/8" at the centre-back. It sports 1 collar stud hole at the centre-front and 1 stud hole at the centre-back. This collar is made with Plain White Cotton - but other fabrics are available.

Different cotton fabrics are available for all washable collars - please view our Fabrics page for more information and contact us via email for further help:
