It was fashionable during the 19th century for the middle and upper classes to wear detachable collars and cuffs on their shirts whilst the working classes worn their shirts without either only attaching them on special occasions. The collars were highly starched and when worn upright as was the fashion it could be very difficult for the wearer to move his head freely. Collars that turned down, like the one advertised on this advertisement, did not become popular until the end of the 19th century. Even today it was still more appropriate to wear the upright collar to more formal events.
