The shirts are a basic thing that should not be missing in any male wardrobe, from the most formal to the most casual wear. Because of the peculiarities of shirts, choosing properly requires more attention than any other garment and you will have no choice but to look at several basic aspects if you do not want to make your choice a wrong purchase.
Cutting and Dimensions
In the case of shirts, the cut and dimensions must be perfect. There is nothing worse than a shirt too big or too tight, so the first thing to think about is the type of shirt you need according to our physiognomy and style.
Usually we find three types of shirts i.e. the most classic, the tightest and the sport or straight. The first one is only suitable if you are going to use for a business or office look, while the choice between a tight or straight cut will be more defined by your physiognomy, the straight type being the most suitable for those who have a few kilo more.
Once you have decided which type of shirt suits you the most, the next step will be to look at the cut of the shoulders. The seam that indicates the beginning of the shoulders should never be below the shoulders, in any case a little before or at most in the same place where they end but never afterwards or it will give you a picture of sagging shoulders.
The dimensions of the shirt must also be taken into account. No matter how well it stands on our shoulders, you cannot wear an excessively long or excessively short shirt. If you want to wear it outside the pants, the shirt should not be shorter than the belt area or cover the area of the pockets of the pants.
Another important point when choosing a shirt is the neck that must have correctly placed. In addition if you want to combine it with a tie, the shirt should be a closed neck, and this means that you can close the shirt to the last button joining the two ends of the neck. This point is essential, wearing a tie on a neck that is not of this type would ruin the look altogether.
Within this point, you will find multiple variants such as Italian neck, English neck, etc. The difference lies in the position of the neck tips and the shape of the neck. If on the contrary, if you look for a sportier or casual shirt, the whales in the neck can be completely dispensable, and there comes into play the imagination and the most personal style of each one being able to opt for open necks.
On many occasions, we only look at the color of the shirt and little else, which is a very common mistake. We should never ignore the composition of the shirt, especially if it is for summer or winter and if we are more or less likely to sweat.
At this point, if you are one of those who sweat easily, it is always better to opt for a cotton shirt, as it will make your body transpire more and better than if it were a synthetic material.
And last but not least, when you go to buy the collection of you cool shirts, you never let yourself be guided solely by the price. Not always the most expensive has to be the best, the important thing is to find a shirt that suits the points that I have explained before to make your purchase a success.
