One of the questions I get from guys who have come across my style is “why do you like vintage”? Well the truth of the matter is, I don’t always like to wear vintage. There are a few things that modern manufacturers get right that I enjoy (extremely soft tailoring is one). If I had the money, I could possibly have an entire bespoke wardrobe.

While the term loop collar has been thrown in the mix, it’s best known among true vintage enthusiasts and collectors as the sport shirt.
There have been a few articles written by other people on this subject, but none of have gone past the 1950s and 1960s in terms of history. We’re here to put the record straight on this classic piece of vintage menswear that was worn by men of all ages in a variety of different outfits.
