Not long ago, camp collars were the butt of the joke, reserved for bowling shirts and aloha prints rather than the streets of SoHo. The shirts’ distinguishing feature is the absence of a top button, requiring it be worn open around the neck, and a straight-hemmed bottom. Their recent comeback can be traced through the sum of brands and manufacturers who have embraced the style for its casual panache, suggesting that maybe it’s high time we take the camp collar seriously.
