As a young boy growing up in Hong Kong, Ben Perkins regularly wore white dress shirts for school functions, orchestra performances, and church activities. But when he wasn’t in a dress shirt, Perkins was wearing athletic clothing. Then one miserable, muggy day (while wearing a white dress shirt), Perkins thought, “What can’t I make a dress shirt out of athletic material?” This thought was the start of the company &Collar, which was officially formed in August of 2017.

  • Free Shipping on Orders over $100

Unstainable, Sustainable Shirts

&Collar boasts that its products aren’t just good for the customer, but also the environment. All of the shirts are made with a proprietary blend of fabrics and utilize upcycled plastics. 

&Collar’s process takes plastic bottles and delivers them to a recyclables process plant. The bottles are turned into plastic pellets that are then processed into thread. The thread is delivered to a clothing manufacturer where it is woven into a &Collar shirt. 

According to the company, each shirt is produced with the equivalent of 15 plastic bottles. 

Additionally, all &Collars shirts are machine washable, moisture-wicking, wrinkle-resistant, and stain-resistant. 

Free Returns and Exchanges

&Collar offers free returns and exchanges on all its products (as long as customers return the product within 30 days of the original shipping date). Customers can initiate a return or exchange by simply visiting &Collar’s Exchange and Returns Portal.

The Bad

  • Limited Clothing Selection
  • Limited Retail Locations

Limited Clothing Selection

&Collar is a relatively new company and therefore doesn’t quite have the biggest selection of items. So far, the company sells shirts, ties, and socks. There are only about 8 shirts, 10 sock styles, and 27 different ties to choose from. There is also a question of stock. Young companies often haven’t had a lot of time to stock up on certain products, and it can be frustrating for consumers when the product they’re looking for is sold out. 

Limited Retail Locations

Currently, &Collar is only working with retailers in Utah and Idaho.

The Bottom Line

If you’re tired of wearing dress shirts that wrinkle, soak up moisture, and keep in the heat, then &Collar is probably the company for you. Although there isn’t a huge selection of products, the young company sells unstainable but sustainable dress shirts that are made out of athletic material. &Collar offers free shipping on orders over $100, and there are free returns and exchanges.

Samuel Lopez Lehi, UT

I thought it was a fake because the prices are great and the product is amazing. You can go and look at their shirts IRL if you live in UT but if not I ordered online as well.
