Creating a Made to Measure Dress Shirt - What You Need to Know

When it comes to a men’s dress shirt, there are several things you need to take into account, such as fit, collar, cuff, and color. When it comes to dress shirts, details matter.

One of the most important details is the fit of the shirt. Men often wear dress shirts that do not fit them properly. There are a few rules to keep in mind when fitting yourself for a dress shirt.

First, two fingers should be able to fit inside your collar when buttoned. Plus, the cuffs should be tight enough that they must be unbuttoned to take them off. The sleeves of your shirt should be long enough that the cuffs do not come down your forearm, but short enough that they are not hanging over your hands. The overall fit of the shirt should be tight enough that you can only pinch out about one to three inches of fabric.

In addition to the fit of your dress shirt, you also want to find the right fabric. There are several fabric types. The most popular is broadcloth or poplin. The broadcloth is soft like silk and often chosen for formal events. Pinpoint fabric is often used for both casual and classy events. The pinpoint fabric is tightly woven and provides an attractive texture. A heavier fabric is twill. This fabric often lacks crispness, but gives a softer texture.

In the end, when it comes to wearing a dress shirt your comfort is the most important factor. At Arya Clothes, we provide custom made dress shirts designed to fit you best. You can choose the fit, collar, cuff and other details that make your mens custom dress shirts perfect for you.
