3 Shirt Style Tricks to Appear Thinner

When ordering a custom dress shirt with us, I often advise that a few styling option tips can go a long way. You may have always ordered a wide spread collar because you like they way your colleague looks in it. What if another option could help you appear thinner? Here are three small tricks to help you when you place your next order with us.

1. Get a shirt that truly fits.

Of course you should make sure the shirt fits in the chest and waist  but has it occurred to you that the sleeve fullness of your shirt can also create the illusion that you are larger or smaller than you truly are?

2. Try a hidden button front style.

We refer to it as a “fly front” as in the fly on your pants. The buttons are hidden behind an extra strip of fabric.  That crisp clean look down the front of your shirt can assist in making you appear thinner. Plus it just looks great!

3. Choose a point collar with a vertical stripe.

A point collar is a go-to for all face shapes as it typically works for everyone. It elongates the face a bit which will help you appear slimmer. A vertical stripe assists in the thinner illusion.
