How Your Dress Shirt SHOULD Fit

So you think you have a pretty good fitting dress shirt? Maybe it’s great or maybe you are beginning to wonder if it could be better. Let’s take a look at how your dress shirt should fit.

The collar should lightly touch the neck all the way around with enough room to fit one finger in the front. If there is any pressure of the fabric into the skin, it is too tight.

 

The shoulder seam should rest on the very outer edge of the shoulder top. The seam should not fall over the shoulder toward the tricep. The armhole should not cut into the underarm area.

The chest and waist should have a comfortable button closure with room for movement of the rib cage as well as the roundest part of your midsection. There should not be excess or bulging fabric at the pant waist when the shirt is tucked in.

The cuff should land just at the protruding bone on the outside of the wrist if the sleeve length is long enough. There should be enough cuff width to allow for a watch if you wear one.

The shirt tail should completely hide the waistband and beltline and have enough room at all sides to stay tucked when you’ve loosened it by reaching your arms overhead.
