I don’t even like sitting in a taxi or on the tube when I’ve got a nicely ironed shirt on – I can feel the creases starting.

When I talk about rock n’ roll, to me, that goes back to the beginning of the 1950s. Blue suede shoes and sideburns, man. Pink and black coloured clothes. Turn your collar up, comb your hair in ducktails. And the music was cool. It was a whole culture then – a different world.

My father worked in the Post Office. A lot of double shifts. All his friends were in the same situation – truck drivers, taxi cab drivers, grocery clerks.

I’ve been caught in parachute pants. And on my high school yearbook, they used the wrong picture. They were supposed to use the picture of me with a nice suit on.

Yes, the people I draw don’t have a wide variety of looks. Every now and then I’ll spruce it up, like a woman will be wearing a two-piece suit as opposed to a one-piece, or a man will not be wearing a tie; he’ll just have a collar.

David Autor

Why doesn’t Apple stop for a year and make medical devices?

Having a faster, thinner telephone is not one of the world’s biggest problems.

Luke Perry

When I was a child, I was always nicking my mum’s jewellery to wear, and I loved to drape a massive Chinese shawl around me from our fancy-dress box. I was obsessed with a feather and rabbit-fur collar from the age of three and attempted to make one with my friend, whose father was a gamekeeper.

Alice Temperley

I like to accessorise shirts with a little ribbon tied round my collar or a country style ascot. I’ve also sewed little hearts on some of my sleeves which I’ve done for years because I always wear my heart on my sleeve so if you see a little embroidered heart on my clothes, that’s why!

Bernie Mac

I spent my junior year in Switzerland. On the way back home, I spent some time in England, and I remember going to Hyde Park Corner.

Antonin Scalia

I come from a blue collar family, but my personal life isn’t. I didn’t get the gene that my grandfather had in spades. He was a local hero. Built the church that I went to.

Bill Engvall

I want all of the blue collar American working class people to know that I’m out there fighting for them.

What is Collar?

A collar is the part of a shirt, dress, coat, or blouse which fastens or frames the neck around.

Between professionals in the clothing production, a collar is differentiated from other necklines, such as reverses and lapels, by being constructed from a different piece of fabric, rather than a folded or cut portion of the same piece of fabric used for the garment’s main body.
