Originally a white collar was detachable and held to the shirt by the use of two studs. Some say the US version was invented in 1827 by a housewife named Hannah Montague of Troy NY who was having trouble keeping her husbands shirt collars clean. The white collar soon became a division of the classes and a status symbol among the growing clerical workers. Today the white bankers collar is still very much alive and popular among all classes from Rakes to Rogues. Snatch one up now!
