I recommend that you go to the Google Books search and search for this book:

Material strategies: dress and gender in historical perspective by Barbara Burman, Carole Turbin

If you then search in this book you can read about shirt styles, including collarless shirts, in the 19th century. It's interesting in that there was usually a distinction made between the working class and the upper class in terms of shirt styles. Also, the fact that regular bathing was not yet in vogue influenced the use of removable collars.
