A well fitted suit or shirt can play an important role in terms of overall appearance. Only a well cut dress can make the wearer comfortable. An ill fitting clothe will cause a lot of discomfort to the wearer. A man who is not comfortable in his clothes will be so perceived by the world. The test of proper fitting clothes is that the wearer will barely take notice of his clothes. A proper fit will ensure a good impression. Clothes which are on sale in the stores are poor in terms of fitting. The reason behind this is that most companies try to make a fitting which will suit a majority. The staff or the salesman have very little knowledge of menswear and are of no great help. Every man should take care to ensure that the clothes that he is purchasing are of a proper fit.
In this relation, a man's dress shirtshould be properly suited to his body structure. The shoulders of the shirt or the yoke should only cover his shoulders and not extend down towards his sleeve. In terms of sleeves, they should be such that a man can comfortably move his arms without the sleeve getting pulled up. Cuff links can be used to ensure this. The shirt should be a minimum 3 inches loose from the stomach and chest area. Its length should be such that when he bends, the shirt should not get un-tucked from either the sides or the back. Lastly, the neck collar should be so that not more than two fingers can come between the collar and the neck skin.
When it comes to a man's dress shirt a proper fit can go a long way in determining the way he looks. An expensive but ill-fitted shirt can easily pale in comparison to a proper fitted less expensive one.
