Building a modern professional or formal wardrobe can be a lot of fun. But before you dive in, it’s important to consider it’s foundation – the dress shirt. The perfect suit isn’t complete without a great dress shirt
. At some point during the day, the jacket comes off, and it’s the shirt that takes the central stage. The correct shirt selection can add character and individuality to the look. That being said, how many times have you roamed in the mall looking for the right one? Chances are if the shirt is available in the right color, your size is either sold out or not available. As we have less time to fuss over limited edition dress shirts that are not even available in our size and for mall shopping, custom made shirts become a viable option.
On the other hand, one meeting with a tailor can open great shirt features and customized options. With a custom shirt, you can get the fabric of your choice and get it tailored as you wish. You can add buttons of your choice and decide between simple or French cuffs that would go so well with your favorite cufflinks. A well-tailored shirt gives you an option of perfect fabric selection, color, and aesthetic features like cut, size and design. Oversized clothes makes the person look sloppy and shorter. As you should not settle for an over-sized dress shirt, tailored shirt give you polished and presentable look and compliment your body.
A tailored shirt
is guaranteed to give you comfort and perfect fit. It gives you a masculine shape. It is designed to be fitted just to highlight the most prominent parts of your torso and chest. If you happen to have a strong built chest and a chiseled body type, then your dress shirt will be tailored to give you a look that will flatter your body.
It will give you room where it’s required and show off your workout routine to the world. Whereas if you have skinny or not-so-athletic body type then your tailored dress shirts will act like a buffer and will make you look more presentable and lean at the same time.
