Product Description

Constructed of paper with cloth lamination. This style is discontinued, when the current stock is depleted, no more will be manufactured.

It is believed that the first detachable collars were invented in Troy, NY, in 1827, as one woman’s expedient way to launder her husband’s collar. She snipped off the collar to launder it separately, saving the body of the shirt from unnecessary washings. Up until the Civil War, detachable collars were constructed of linen or cotton.

The paper collar industry got its start during the Civil War when the South's control of cotton cut off the supply of cloth collars. Many people preferred the substitute and continued to wear them after the War. Production of paper collars hit its peak between 1870 and 1914.

Amazon Drygoods Collars have been in continuous production since 1866, when the Reversible Collar company was founded. Gibson Lee was the successor to Reversible, who in turn sold to the business to Amazon Drygoods. The Tuxedo, High Wing, and Stand-up models are still produced on the original 1860’s Reversible Collar Company press.

  1. A sophisticated alternative to the cloth collar. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jan 2018

    This will be the least wrinkly collar you've ever worn, it will look very good in photographs and will appear as cloth eventhough the base material is cardstock. Due to it being a turn over collar it is quite hard to get on. I have to first attach the rear button, then put the tie in place with the collar flat across my back, then carefully fold the collar around my neck without letting the tie slip out. After attaching the front I have to maneuver the tie so as its not showing beneath the collar. This can take a few minutes. However once on it looks excellent, perfect for an early 20th century style.
