Dress Shirt Cuff

To start, allow me to explain some basic tailoring rules when it comes to men’s suit sleeves. While being fitted for a suit, stand in front of a full-length mirror. Keep your body straight and look forward at all times. If you look down to view the tailor measuring your sleeves, the sleeves will slowly creep down and the final length will be askew. Be sure to observe the tailor, but only in the mirror. The tailor should cuff up your suit sleeves to show you where the suit sleeves’ edges will be once the tailoring is complete. Turn to the side to look at the sleeve profile. Suit sleeves are cut on a slight angle and you want to be sure that the back part of the sleeve, where the buttons are, is not too long. The tailor should then measure with a ruler- not a tape measure- from the tip of your thumb to the bottom part of your wrist. That is precisely where the chalk mark should go on your suit sleeves for shortening. This measurement, on average, is four inches and works well for various shirt type options regardless of whether you plan to wear button cuff, barrel cuff or French cuff shirts. For men who wear French cuff shirts exclusively, I recommend a four and a half-inch measurement from the tip of the thumb. This allows a shirt’s cuffs to show a bit more and will give rise to displaying some cufflink when moving about during the day.

Conversely, if your suit sleeves need to be made longer, the same tailoring rules apply. As an aside, in both cases, whether lengthening or shortening suit sleeves, be certain the tailor replaces the faux button stitching in the correct places relative to the new sleeve length. When the stitching is removed during tailoring and not put back on, you know for certain you got a rush job. Either the tailor is lazy, inexperienced or both. Always request that the stitching be sewn back to the original look. If your suit comes with sleeves prepared for working buttons, also known as surgeon’s sleeves, be sure to review the placement of the holes before they are cut into the fabric.

When the measuring for shortening suit sleeves is complete and the tailor has cuffed the suit’s sleeves to the expected, final length, pull your shirt’s cuffs all the way down. Use the mirror to determine how much shirt cuff will show out from the anticipated, new sleeve length of the suit. Measure from the end of a suit’s sleeve to the end of a shirt’s cuff. If you have one-quarter inch to one half-inch showing for a button/barrel cuff shirt, you are at the ideal measurement. If the amount of shirt showing is longer than that, it is the shirt’s sleeves that are too long and need to be shortened. For French cuff wearers, a half to one full inch is an acceptable measurement, which will show off the double fold of a French cuff very smartly.

Match Shirt With a Tie

1. Work. If we are trying to find a good set for work we should remember that clothes to work should be toned down but not boring. All depends on where do we exactly work – if we have to be really elegant it is good to stay classy and avoid extravagance. When we are choosing tie it shouldn’t be the same color as jacket and shirt but has to be reserved.

2. How to match colors and designs. A good practise is to use three colors and two designs. If you want to wear suit with ornaments or shirt the tie should be in one color or in really delicate stripes. To match designs well we need to have some experience in this matter, so safer would be using only three colors and two designs.

3. An evening set. Evening set also depends on a place where we are going. Black suit, white shirt and silk tie with staple – that’s a classic outfit. But we can have this set and make it a bit extravagance and add an unusual cufflinks in example. To be creative is very important as long as we know what we are doing and doing it with good taste.

4. Matching tie with a person. If a man is tall he looks good in a two-tied tie. This will make the body look better cause it will give a harmony to the posture. If the person isn’t too tall it is better to use one-tied tie. And using tie with stripes can help our body look more thin – the same effect might be with colors.

Fashion Undergoes

Another popular form of dress happens to be the T shirt which can be teemed with anything like jeans, trousers, shorts, cargos etc. Be it work or casual lounge wear a T shirt never looks out of place.

There are some reputed brands of T shirts preferred by the quality conscious people out there like Lacoste, Polo, Proline, Tommy Hilfiger etc. They are probably priced higher than others but are truly a class apart. T Shirts make excellent travel wear especially because they are light weight and chances of creasing are less. They are available in sizes ranging from infants up to adults.

You can find T shirts in whatever material you prefer like cotton, wool and synthetic materials like nylon, Polyester, Lycra etc. Make your choice according to the climatic conditions, provided that it suits you. T shirts are also popular sports wear worn by athletes, golfers, cricket, and foot ball and basket ball players in every season.

Clothes alone don’t constitute fashion. Accessories like matching shoes, bags; belts and jewelry have become a part of every carefully selected outfit. Most major brands have their own selection of such accessories that compliment their clothes.

Designing is a major part of the fashion industry so much so that it has become a full fledged career for many. There are specialized courses offered to gain knowledge of various styles, cuts, and commercial aspect of selling clothes.

Fashion houses like Prada, Gucci, Givenchy and many more sell atrociously priced dresses ardently sought after by celebrities and stars. A famous personality posing as the brand ambassador of a particular line sets a fashion statement each time he/she appears in public flaunting the latest brand design.

Fashion shows are another highlight of the industry. Shows of major brands are eagerly watched each season by the fashion journalists, designers and every ‘clothes crazy’ individual out there. Cities like Paris, Milan, London, and Las Vegas are among the major fashion hubs in the world.

The arrival of department stores and shopping malls has made shopping all the more pleasurable and easier. Department stores are a one stop place for all fashion necessities. Prices are comparatively reasonable and attractive discount sales are put up at the end of every season that appeals a lot to shoppers.

Tricks Pick Good Style of Shirt

Sleeve Length
Firstly, you need to consider what length sleeves you want your shirt to have. There are two main options, short sleeved and long sleeved, although some designer shirts also come in a third option with three quarter length sleeves. Generally sleeve length will be determined by the weather with short sleeves worn more during the warmer months and long sleeves worn in the cooler months. However some people who team shirts with a jacket, will wear short sleeve shirts all years as they can be more comfortable as an under garment.

Next you need to consider the colour of the shirt. Whether choosing a plain shirt or a patterned one, colour is very important. You many need to consider what other items of clothing you will be wearing the shirt with for example the colour of your suit, trousers, footwear or accessories such as ties. This is especially important if you operate a ‘mix and match’ style wardrobe. You may also need to consider your skin tone, hair colour or eye colour when selecting a shirt too. Paler colours tend to look better on dark or olive skin tones, as do vibrant colours where as mid-range colours tend to look good on fair skin types. Some colours enhance the hair colour whilst others can bring out the colour of your eyes.

As well as overall colour, you also have to consider the pattern on your shirt. The pattern can really jazz up an otherwise boring shirt and turn it into a key fashion piece. If you have a confident, outspoken personality you may want to convey this with a bold, heavy pattern. For a less striking look, a smaller, uniform pattern may be more suitable such as stripes.
