The Windsor Collar The Windsor collar was first popularized in the 1930s by the Duke of Windsor in order to accommodate the larger knotted necktie to which he was partial. It is the most formal of all collar styles. Because of its formality, it has never quite made it into the mainstream of American clothing, gaining popularity only during those periods when American dress has been heavily influenced by the English. This is a shame, because with its open angled, starched, stiff collar, it heightens the dramatic gesture of the collar.
If you choose to wear a collar bar, select one in a gold or silver safety-pin style. Contrary to popular notion, holes made by the pin in the collar will close up after the shirt is washed. The clip models occasionally have interesting designs but never hold securely to the collar edge and must be adjusted throughout the day. The bar with a ball on either end, one of which screws on and off for use, is also very smart. The shirt collar must have holes sewn specifically for this particular bar. When worn properly, this method of securing the collar is not doubt the most elegant.
Leather absorbs moisture. This is what allows it to stretch and why it is so important for shoes to be given time to rest. Never wear a pair of shoes for more than one day at a time. Leather breathes like cotton or wool. It needs at least a day or two to dry out, in order to release trapped moisture (if your shoes do get wet, be sure and keep them away from sources of excessive heat, such as a radiator), and to return to its original shape. By alternating shoes and keeping shoe trees in them, there is no limit on the years they can last.
