Men’s shirts and their details

 To have a better idea of men’s shirts , you need to consider its key elements. These elements are: sleeves, pockets, collar, cuffs, back and front sides. 

Detail one – the collar

The very first task of a collar is to frame a man’s face. In a suit or in a jacket, the collar always remains in front of everyone. Its appearance plays a big role in your image and style. Men’s shirt collars come in different sizes, colors and styles. If you have a short or long neck, the collar will visually correct this shortcoming. One of the most common types of collar is a collar with two ends lowered in the form of a triangle down. Depending on the collar model, the width of the corners or additional details may be changed. At the same time, the basis remains unchanged. In our previous publications, you can learn more about the types of collars. 

Detail two – cuffs

An important element in a men’s shirt are the cuffs. They are small but add chic to your style. Like the collar, the cuffs are visible from under the jacket, and should protrude 1-2 cm, but no more! Usually the cuffs are fastened with two buttons, if there is one, then this is also correct. In addition to these buttons, there may be one more button in the shirt that fastens the sleeve slit. Its task is that your hand is not unnecessarily exposed. For a more formal style, “French” is used. This cuff wraps around the wrist and is secured with a cufflink. If you chose a tuxedo, then a shirt with cufflinks is perfect for him.

Detail three – buttons

Buttons don’t get much attention. Everyone thinks that buttons are a functional element of a shirt and they are all the same. If you look closely, then the buttons are made of plastic, and are made of metal. They come with two and four holes, and the buttons can also have an engraving of the owner. In more expensive shirts, designer shirts for example, the buttons may have gemstones inside. 

Detail four – the front side of the shirt

If you look at the front side of the shirt, then only the presence of one or two pockets will attract attention. There are also cases where there are simply no pockets on the shirt. For a more formal style, face pockets should not be on the shirt. In all other styles, pockets are allowed.

So that the pocket does not bulge, you do not need to put anything in it – this is ugly. 

Detail five – the back side of the shirt

We divide the back side of the shirt into three types: 1 and 2 – type contains folds. They are distinguished only by the location of these folds.
The 3rd type has no folds.

The folds on the shirt play an important role. The purpose of the folds is aimed at a good fit of the back relief and comfort. Usually shirts come with one pleat, because two pleats are more expensive to produce.

Additional shirt details

Additional details in a men’s shirt can be various patches, personalized initials on the cuffs and much more. With the help of such details, you will focus on your image.  

The main thing here is not to overdo it. If you are tired of the classics, then you should try something new and fresh with designer elements. Create your image, make it noticeable, emphasize your dignity and your great taste. Experiment, but always know the measure.
