A true Hollywood creation, this authentic spearpoint collared shirt grew to be
extremely popular worldwide from 1928 to 1933. It is said that the long-pointed,
3.5" shirt collar was designed and popularized by the legendary screen actor, John
Barrymore. To outdo Mr. Barrymore, some rakish Hollywood heartthrobs
,such as George Raft, wore collars up to 4.5" long!
Made of 100% cotton, our classic Duke shirt has a 3.5" long, curved, top-stitched collar;
a left breast pocket; and French cuffs (or "double cuffs", as they were known back in the
day). The shirt's sleeves have plackets with gauntlet buttons and, like its collar, are
top-stitched at one-quarter inch. The collar itself comes equipped with removable stays
for a more formal, starched look. Take them out, and the newly softened collar can be
worn open or with your favorite collar bar.
With this shirt we introduce six new fabric choices, giving you a total of 15 options to
accommodate all of your wardrobe needs. See "Duke Shirt Color Compendium" to select
your choice of fabric.
