Not all shirts can be paired with a tie, all depending on the model you wear a shirt collar.

Shirts contain various organs of the body that can make a shirt is not just "a" shirt, sleeves, cuffs, collar and body parts.

Turndown collars

Turndown collars collar is a collar with a piece of you already know. With a sharp piece facing downwards, the collar is divided into two classes, Point Collar and cutaway / Spread Collar.

Pin and Tab collars

This collar is re-shaped and tapering, it's just that distinguishes Pin collars is the presence of small holes on each side of the collar or to provide a pin or identity that is attached to the collar. While the tab collars, connecting both sides of the collar is present, the "hook and loop closure"

Wing collars

Wing collar is like to float and not touch the shirt body, tapered shape with a sharp size, shirt collar tuxedo is a loyal partner.

Note the color and motif Shirts

In addition to attention to the model's shirt collar, you should pay attention to colors and patterns will you wear that shirt. If you liked the shirt stripes, note that the stripes on the sleeves you should meet with the lines on the layer behind the shoulder.

In the meantime, if you are happy with the plaid shirt, it's good plaid look is not interrupted by the connection on the shoulder, arm, and on the right side and left-shirts.

Choose colors that calm and unobtrusive if you wear a suit. To suit, choose a color that is not too in tune with the shirt or choose a slightly contrasting color so do not look dead. It should be noted also when wearing a suit, choose a shirt with collar 2cm higher than lapel.
