We are so puzzled, DH says "ask the ladies!" So here we go.

Shirts were coming back from the laundry with blackish (grey) marks on the OUTSIDE of the shirt collar. At first I though they have some kind of dirt on their pressing aparatus.

But now I bought DH a couple of new shirts and - before it even went to the laundry, there are marks!

From his hat? (I don't think it's been raining every day!) A suit could run? Could he be leaning against a wall? He says no.

Anyone have an idea?

Yep. From the hat. Esp if he pushes the hat back to don tefillin. I don’t know any way to get it out as it’s often not just black dye but actual fibers that embed themselves into the collar’s fabric.The hat brim is rubbing against the collar.

He's not wearing a hat by Shacharis, he wears a tallis.
But I guess we can do an experiment with a white cloth & see if color rubs off.

Okay, further data.
I rubbed the back of the hat on an old white sheet. Sure enough, same type of blackish color.

But, DH tried leaning his head back with his hat & jacket on. It doesn't seem possible the hat will hit the shirt collar. The jacket is in the way.

It's not at all frequent that he would put on his hat e.g. to bentsch, without his jacket. He doesn't wash during the week & at Shabbos meals usually keeps his jacket on.

Do you think this could all be from Melaveh Malka? Every shirt eventually got hit?

Sweat, rain, who knows? He needs a different hat brand.

If I knew which brand doesn't rub off... so I guess we need to test in the hat store?

Could it be from the black stripe on his tallis?

Only if he put his Tallis on sideways. Did he recently dye his tefillin retzuot?

Ooh. That's a good one. I'll have to ask.

Lymnok! Spot on! He (recently) got retzuos that are black on both sides. He thinks that's it. And noticed his Shabbos shirts don't seem to have the stain.
