A Style which took over Men’s Fashion by storm in the ’50s is back again. The history says it started way back in the late 1800s in South America and was a staple outfit for working-class Men. It is unclear on how it landed upon American Soil but it was pretty big in the 1950s. It ruled men’s fashion scene throughout the decade and slowly disappeared with time. Elvis Presley was a pretty big fan of the Cuban Collar Shirts and it was a big hit with the working dads in America.
Also known as “Camp Collar” or “Revere Collar” Shirt it has made a major comeback this season. Many confuse the Cuban Collar with the Hawaiian Shirt but trust us it's not the same.
It looks similar to retro bowling shirts & Hawaiian Shirts but it has way more class. The comeback version has more fitted cuts in the body and is more tapered.
