The 10 Best Collarless Button-Up Shirts

Once the domain of clergy members, cadets, chefs, factory workers and more, collarless shirts have just hit the mainstream.


Collarless button-downs have been worn for some time by clergy members, military cadets, chefs, hotel staff and Dr. Evil. Now, they’ve hit the mainstream as a slightly edgier alternative to the traditional button-down. The shirts come in an array of fabrics and go by a handful of names indicating subtle differences — mandarin, grandad, band and banded collar — which means you may have to turn over a few rocks to find one that fits your style. These are 10 of our favorites.
