French cuff shirt A French cuff shirt is a piece of clothing for the trunk of the body. It is a garment for the upper part of the body, typically having a collar, cuffs, sleeves, and a front opening. It is made up of tightly woven French cuff and it comes in many styles and colors.

Collar Styles

Regular (technically a point collar) - a collar that appears narrow.

Cut-away - a collar that is more cut away towards the shoulder - the degree varies.

Windsor collar- It is very cut away indeed, originally to complement the Windsor tie knot.

Button-down collar- A collar, usually narrow, that buttons over the tie. Not suitable for more formal occasions.
