Cuffs and collar are stiffened. S. are produced in various types: the classic s. fastens to the neck and is worn with a tie; the open-necked shirt is worn most commonly in the summer months;, the formal s. is intended for wear with a formal suit, dinner jacket or evening suit, is white with a shirt front, has decorative hems, and its cuffs are folded and stiffened. Since the 10th century the s. has been an indispensable part of a man's wardrobe, although naturally its form has changed.
