I don’t think you need to notice it, but shirts are a vital element to modern male outfits (whether he seduces women or not). Once you pass the 20 year-old mark, you can not look serious wearing exclusively T-shirts.
Shirts, The Cuts
If there’s one word that you should keep in mind regarding your shirt, it should be this one: hanged. A hanged shirt is a shirt that follows all your body’s curves. When inserted in pants, a shirt should not float. Note that if you are a little strong (meaning that you have a few curves), you should prefer straight shirts.
The ideal would be that you’re thin, and you can question yourself regarding this.
Shirts : Collars
People who offer you tailored shirts should offer you about a dozen collars, each with very specific usage. Note that collars are possible, but not for every occasion. For a shirt that you will wear to work, you should prefer collars with tightened edges (classical collars, Italian collars, and British collars).
For ceremonies such as formal receptions, or official ones (work distinctions…) special collars should be worn. Broken collars and ceremony collars are at the height of the distinction for these types of night, but such a shirt is not fundamental in your wardrobe.
The rest of the time (meetings, nights out), Italian collars, which are open, and officer collars are mainly used. The first category is classic collars, but look rather cool, while the latter are a sign of originality, and literally break the very formal side of the shirt, which is ideal for nights out.
How to wear your shirt?
People constantly ask this question, and the answer is systematically the same: a shirt should be worn inside pants. An exception can be made for short shirts.
A shirt which is outside your pants is not as « cool » as most people think. At work, prefer wearing your shirt with an open button, unless you’re stuck in the 19th century.
Two buttons open to the exterior should be reserved to men who know what they are doing (to show a rather cool look while still wearing a suit). Otherwise, people do it a lot in porn movies as well.
Regarding sleeves, it would be best that these be a little pulled back, not until the shoulders of course, but they should go slightly below the elbows. Above that, sleeves will give a serious aspect, which can also be an option which is taken into consideration.
Taking care of a shirt
Be careful to the small pictograms which indicate washing’/drying/ironing modes which are advised. The important thing is that when you wear your shirt, the fabric should remain soft and should not be wrinkled.
