First, you select your fabrics. Choose from about three-hundred Egyptian cottons, solid colors, stripes and checks, then the knowledgeable staff will help you choose cuff styles, pockets and monograms. After The designer will take your measurements, fourteen in all, and give you actual collars to try on. They make collars in five different back heights and make the collar size to the quarter inch. By trying on the actual collar, there is no guesswork involved – you wear the collar before we make it.
