Posts Tagged ‘Taylored Fit’

I’m a guy who only wears nicely fitted shirts. I have one rule that goes before all other rules when buying a piece of clothing. It doesn’t matter how great the color/quality/make is, – it must fit as if it were tailored specifically for me.

Here is an example of what I mean.

Back in the day it use to be hard to find fitted shirts and if you did managed to find a nice shirt that was tailor fitted, you usually would have to fork out next week’s grocery money (or monthly rent) to take that shirt home with you. This has changed. Stores like Zara, H&M and TopMan have brought the fit and quality that used to only be at the high end to the more affordable spectrum where people like me with a low budget dwell. I think Zara has the best quality of the 3 mentioned.

Here are 3 Things to look for when buying a fitted shirt.

  1. The seam where the shoulder meets the arm must never ever droop.
  2. The collar should have a proper collar stay and it should stand straight
  3. The sleeves should not be so long that it crumples. It should be long enough to meet at or sit just below your wrist but not too long to cause the sleeves to be touching your knuckles.

Good luck and remember “A woman likes to see your curves just as much as you like to see hers”
