• Legacy Button Down Collar

    Legacy Button Down Collar

    The Michael-Spencer Legacy Button Down Collar traces its roots to the polo fields of Great Britain.  British polo players devised a collar that had buttons to hold the collar place in order to keep it from flapping around during the heat of the match. In the early 1900’s the idea of the button down collar was introduced in the United States and almost immediately achieved iconic status in the traditional American wardrobe.

    The Legacy Button Down Collar features 3.5 inches of cascading cloth which culminates in the perfectly executed roll that is so desirable to the devotees of this style. The Legacy Button-Down has withstood the test of time, the vagaries of fashion, and perhaps more than any other collar, has become symbolic of the free-spirited American style.

    From the polo field to the board room, and for every situation in between, if you are interested in a truly “unflappable” appearance, the Michael Spencer Legacy Button Down Collar is worthy of your consideration.
