Did you know. . .
A tab-collar shirt is a clerical shirt that clergy wear as street clothes, not a vestment. It is a type of shirt (or blouse, for female clergy) that has a folded-down collar with an opening over the throat. The shirt comes with a white tab that looks something like a tongue depressor. After putting on the shirt, the wearer slips the tab into place. The effect is a white rectangle over the throat. If the white rectangle is wide, it is called an Anglican collar; if it is narrow, it is called a Roman collar.
Tab-collar shirts come in all colors and fabrics, but the public often does not perceive it as a clergy shirt unless it is black.
Clergy shirts are Protestant in origin. The Roman Catholic Church did not adopt them as street wear for clergy until the 19th century.
