Whether it’s for you or for someone else, choosing a men’s dress shirt can be a daunting task. Here are a few things to keep in mind when selecting a dress shirt.
Sizes for men’s clothes are fairly standardized, although there is some variation among specific brands. Generally, dress shirts will be sized by the neck and sleeve-length.
How does one measure a men’s dress shirt size? This is one of the most common questions we encounter and one that can be done quite easily. Here are some suggestions from the experts.
- Take your neck circumference measurement – Take a skintight measurement around your neck, just below your Adam’s apple. Round your neck measurement up to the nearest whole or half size.
- Take your shoulder measurement – With both arms down by your side, measurement taken from the tip of the left shoulder point, along the top of the shoulder just below the base of the collar to the tip of the right shoulder.
- Take your full sleeve-length measurement – Run the measuring tape over your shoulder, and let it hang down to your hand. Measure to the center of the meaty part of your palm.
- Measure your waist size- Measure closely around the body at your natural waist level.
From the measurements, determine the body fit you would like your dress shirt to have.
