What determines a good fit?

dress shirt

So there you are, in the store with rows and rows of shirts just mocking you. They all look nice but for some reason you get the idea that they don’t fit. Over at www.CUSTOMdressshirts.info they discuss just these kind of subjects. So how can you be sure that they don’t? Well there are a few guidelines to keep in mind when putting these shirts on and they are as follows:

First the obvious one, they need to feel comfortable. This isn’t always as obvious as you’d expect. For instance, larger men will need a looser type of shirt to compliment their physique and skinnier men need a shirt that sits snug on their waist.

When your collar is buttoned up you should be able to put two fingers next to each other.

You must never be able to slip off your shirt when the cuffs are still buttoned.

Your sleeves must just cover your wrist bone when you let them hang next to your sides.

The seams of the shoulders should but at the corner from your chest, it’s the part of your shoulder that’s the farthest away from your chest.

Make sure you can pinch the fabric around your waist for at least 1 to 3 inches, this is of course also depending on the type of shirt you prefer to wear.

The Classiest of Necktie Knots that Every Single Man Knows



The four-in-hand knot is the classiest of necktie knots. You have probably done it before, but you just did not know its name, maybe someone had taught it to you.

My father taught me this one when I was in junior high school, he did not even tell me what is was called, this was the only knot I knew how to tie. Back then, no one would even hear of different knots, everyone did not use to be as detailed as now.

Nowadays, men pay more attention to details, and have come up with multiple versions of what a knot is all about.

For example, according to real men real style, there are 18 ways to do it.

Moreover, tailored shirts are the best types of shirts that go with this knot. You may be wondering why, the truth is this knot is very asymmetrical for which you need a good shirt to balance it out.

If not, then imperfections of this knot are very visible and will not leave a great impression on anyone.
