The Double Collar Shirt

Polished. Decisive. Chic. It’s a feeling women get when they wear the KAL RIEMAN Double Collar shirt. Striking the perfect balance between menswear and womenswear, the detailed tailoring and design create a powerful statement with this sophisticated, feminine silhouette.

Inspiration for the iconic look came from our designer's love of menswear and the sartorial elegance of dandyism. “I used to explore the men’s sections of vintage clothing stores and study tuxedo shirts,” Cally shares.

Wonder how the Double Collar shirt achieves that finished look, whether it’s buttoned up with a blazer or open under a sweater? Sewn into the classic neckline is a band that resembles the detachable patrol or imperial collars of bespoke men’s shirts. The hanger loop on the back of the shirt reimagines the “locker loop” that began appearing on men’s shirts around the 1960s. Cally often designs the loop, sleeve placket and collar in a structured white fabric that contrasts the body to add dimension.

The length and darting on a KAL RIEMAN tailored shirt is designed to feel figure flattering, whether tails out or tucked in. Meant to be worn with the bottom button open, each season’s hand-picked, high quality fabrics, from bold stripes to softer solid tones, yield beautiful new styles on this timeless design. The Double Collar Shirt is a versatile wardrobe essential that promotes the confidence within you.

All KAL RIEMAN shirts are made in the heart of New York City. Importing European cottons to all family owned and operated factories is our way of ensuring quality and care in the construction of every shirt.
