Here’s an easy way to re-boot old pieces and turn them into something exciting and new!
The Mandarin, or Band, style collar is a fun alternative to the traditional style of collar you’re used to. It’s a straight collar that stands on it’s own without any fold. They derive from the gowns that Mandarins wore in Imperial China.
