Cavalier Collars, Cuffs, And Boot Tops

Netherlands Style Ruff in LinenCavalier collars, known as 'falling bands' during the late 16th and early 17th centuries, developed from the collar of the shirt or partlet worn under the main garment but between the ruff and a person's skin. This kept the ruffs cleaner and fresher longer. Eventually, during the very latter part of the 16th century and into the early 17th century, the shirt caller became the 'falling band' which, in turn, became a fashion accessory. Today, they are known as Cavalier Collars.

Available in White linen. Made in Black linen by special request only.
