What is a Mandarin Collar Shirt & How is it Different From The Regular One?

The mandarin collar dress shirt, also known as the band collar shirts, derives their name from Mandarin bureaucrats of the Qing-era province of China that used these as part of their uniforms.

It is distinguished by a standup collar that's unfolded and without points which is the usual thing in a regular collar. An amalgamation of the Oriental and Western styles, the Mandarin collar dress shirt is one piece that never runs out of fashion.
