SHIRT FIT GUIDE

We could source the finest cotton and fashion the best shirt the world has ever seen, but if it didn’t fit you properly, it’d make you look like an absolute wally. As with suiting, the fit of your shirt is absolutely paramount. A good, comfortable cut will subtly flatter you figure, ensuring you look and feel fantastic. A bad one will make you look like a schoolboy donning his Dad’s shirt on the first day of term. So take a moment to peruse this fit guide, and make sure you get yours right.

FIT: NOT ROCKET SCIENCE

In fact, they make mental arithmetic look easy. Stick with this simple formula: the slimmer the cut, the more modern the look, while roomy fits err on the classic side. Most of our fits will suit pretty much anyone. However, if you’re an especially slender fella, you may find a slimmer cut flatters your body shape somewhat. Likewise, particularly strapping gents may wish to steer clear of super tight fits.

AND WHILE YOU ARE HERE…

Allow us to talk you through two last bits. A good shirt starts with the fit, but it doesn’t stop there. The right collar and cuffs will turn a Proper Shirt into your Proper Shirt. That’s why, as well as leading the pack with size and fit choices, we offer more collar and cuff combinations than anyone else.

A Gentleman and a Collar

A Gentleman and a Collar

There is all sorts of guff written about collars when, really, it comes down to a matter of personal preference. However, wide cutaway collars are generally considered smarter than, say, a button-down, while classic standard-shaped collars fall between the two. Furthermore, if you have a wide face, you can subtly elongate it with a thin pointed collar. And in the same vein, thin faces can be gently widened with a spread cutaway.

A Gentleman and a Collar

A Cuff to be Getting on with

Should we make yours a double, Sir? It’s on the house. At no extra cost, any of our formal shirts can come with double or single cuffs. Double cuffs are smarter and more traditional, although you will of course require some links to fasten them. Single cuffs are more modern and ever-so-slightly less formal, and they offer the opportunity to roll up your sleeves should you feel stuffy (find yourself embroiled in fisticuffs).
