Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classic shirt...why did I wait so long My old formal shirts were finally starting to show their age. I was debating whether to get a detachable collar but the "practicality" of being able to switch collars got the best of me. I found a place that offered a detachable spread collar to be used for the less formal black tie events. The quality of the shirt went above and beyond my expectations. Due to the lovely stiff placket, the side chest vent, although not traditional, was a god sent for the first couple of uses in order to secure the studs. Button tab at bottom made all the difference. No more resetting of the shirt every time you stand up. I love it so much, I'm actually considering adding a similar tab to some of my other dress shirts. As far as the fit being "too loose", the lighter, looser fabric kept me nice and cool throughout a warm Florida evening. The detachable collar, although much stiffer than a non detachable one, was actually much more comfortable than a standard shirt's collar. It was floating off of the neck instead of laying against it. The stiffness also allows for a much tighter knot as there is no risk of tightening the collar any further. I highly recommend it and will enjoy it for years to come. March 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Should have one to wear for that special occasion Now that's an elegant shirt. Especially having the separate collar. Details are extraordinary. However, could challenge your laundry to replicate how it looked when it came in the long box. Advice: learn to iron. November 19, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect shirt for formal occasions This is an excellent example of formalwear that is not normally found. The detachable collar fits exactly to size and so far has not shrunk through several washings. January 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elegance At Its Finest! This is the finest Full Evening Dress Shirt I have encountered off of the rack. Usually, a shirt of this caliber would fall into the bespoke category. This shirt has a very firm, well-starched collar and it fits quite nicely. The only con would be that, it takes a lot of time to put the shirt on (a valet to help you would be a great asset). September 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 Good Investment Years ago, this shirt would have been the backbone of any decent wardrobe. Today, particularly in the United States, it has become virtually impossible to find. Wearers will discover why it was so popular and question why so many of these "soft" shirts proliferate. If the wearer is unhappy with the included collar, I would suggest New and Lingwood models Grafton and Gaylord. Remember, the collar size is 1/2" larger than the band size. July 31, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good formal shirt As a member of both Odd Fellow and Freemason Lodges, I have for several years used white tie formal wear. The shirt I used previously had a bib in thin material,and a fixed wing collar,making it hard to get that really crisp ,starched appearance. February 23, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful shirt, but will test your patience. When trying this shirt on for the first time, it was difficult for me to work with a detached collar. Finally, after a great deal of frustration, I figured out how it worked. I think it will always take longer to dress with this type shirt as opposed to a conventional tux shirt, but have a classic look. January 19, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by I think I like this shirt, it fits very well, but I have 2 comments. 1) I believe traditional pique bib front shirts require only 2 studs, this shirt requires 3 studs 2) the shirt has a discrete "vent" in the left upper chest to allow you to slip your left hand inside the shirt so you can affix your studs. This is meant to be a convenience, but the vent is a bit new fangled, and would not be seen in authentic traditional bib front shirts. February 8, 2012

Answer: 
This Full Evening Dress Shirt is cut traditionally. If you are a more slim fit like I am, the trouser button hole fasteners come in handy, so the shirt doesn't "balloon out" so to speak and look as if it is not fitted.

Answer: 
The four studs that are stated above include the collar stud, which comes with the shirt. Only 3 studs are visible on the bib. (technically, if one is including the front collar stud, he should also include the rear collar stud).

Would this be considered appropriate to wear for "Black Tie" or would this be reserved for formal "White Tie" occasions? It's hard to tell the way BB models tend to mix the two online.

Answer: 
Traditionally, "Black Tie" attire calls for a Tennis Collar or Turn-down Collar. However, during the 1980's in the so-called "Yuppie Years," it became a fad to wear a Wing Collar with Black Tie and Dinner Jacket (Formal Attire). Traditionally, a Wing Collar is worn strictly for Full Evening Dress (White Tie and Evening Tails). Bottom line, this detachable wing collar shirt is designed for the most formal of occasions.

Answer: 
Hello, thank you for your inquiry. Our Golden Fleece Tuxedo Shirt with Detachable Collar is ideal for formal black-tie occasions as well as white collar events. If you are concerned it may be too formal, you may certainly consider a plain white dress shirt, perhaps with a forward point or Ainsley collar and a black satin tie.

We do hope this is helpful and wish you the best of luck with your selection.

Kind regards,
Brooks Brothers

For example, I normally take a 16.5 collar. Should I order the shirt in a 16 and the collar in a 16.5? Thank you.

Answer: 
No... if anything the shirt's neck runs a touch small once it's been laundered. The detachable collar is spot-on size-wise.

Answer: 
Your trousers should be higher. A shirt like this requires high waisted pants. However, I will point out that the button holes in the tab are too small for my trousers, so I can't use the tab.

Answer: 
Dinner suit trousers are meant to be worn on the natural waist, which is at the navel (or narrowest part of the waist). Be sure that you order trousers with a proper rise to facilitate this fit and provide comfort.

No, the gold toned stud is not supposed to show. Once you have tied your bow-tie, and fastened it accordingly, it will cover the gold stud.
