Product Description

Constructed of paper with cloth lamination.

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. Great value 5 Star Review

    Detachable cloth collars are extremely expensive and are only available in England. These paper and cloth collars are a great alternative.

  2. Authentic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Oct 2019

    I also purchased this collar as part of a Peaky Blinders costume. The collar adds a nice authentic look and I received several compliments on it while wearing it.

    I actually had to place two orders in order to find the right size that fit (I usually wear a 16.5" collar but it was too small so I had to go up to a 17.5"). It is definitely a good idea to order a couple of extras in range of sizes as your shirt neck opening and the size of the collar could differ slightly.

  3. Very Nice 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Nov 2018

    First time wearing the linene-collar,
    I didn't know what to expect,
    Once I learned this is the product that was used on the "Peaky Blinders" series. I had to give these collars a try, the "Vandyck" is perfect for my neck length.
    Did try the Perry Linene Collar, but it was to long for my neck,
    "Vandyck" fits just right!
    I plan on being a "return" customer.

  4. Glad we found this site 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Feb 2018

    I wan to rave about the site and the VanDyck Linene Collar of course. I am a part-time party planner for my friends and I am constantly planning theme parties for them and their children. I have done from White dress Parties, to Victorian Tea Showers, Mad Men New Year's party and the last one, The Great Gatsby Birthday party. Also, my husband and me are great Renaissance Fest groupies. Our favorite dress up theme being Steam Punk, followed by Pirates and Gypsies. I have ordered this collar for my husband twice. The first time when I did the Gatsby themed party and because this is the exact type of collar Shelby uses on the first 2 seasons of Peaky Binders. The second time was for the Renaissance Fest Steam Punk theme. Now the collar is disposable, it's made out of linen cardboard, but it looks very cotton like. Needless to say for the price it's excellent and my husband got constant compliments for it both times he's worn it. We also bought the pin that goes in the collar from this website.

  5. Excellent functional collar 5 Star Review

    This is the best detachable collar I have found. Works great with bow tie and I can wear the same collar at least three times before it starts to wear out. If you are looking for the Peaky Blinders collar, this is it.
