Let us talk you through how to attach a day collar to a tunic shirt. Tunic shirts can be worn three ways - on its own with a stand-up collar, or with a wing collar and bands for court, or with a day collar when you're traveling to court or in a conference with clients afterward.

The first thing to know about your day collar is that it has three holes, one in the centre and one on either side. Your tunic shirt has two holes at the front and the Ivy and Normanton tunic shirt has one at the back for your wing collar on the outside and one on the inside for your day collar.

These items are attached together with studs that have a curved top and a flat bottom. Typically the curved top is the one that goes through the hole and the flat bottom is the one that's worn closest to your neck.
