An essential to the well-dressed professional or the well-put together man playing a round of golf is a well-fitted shirt. While the professional gifts a lot of time creating a businesslike and trustworthy appearance, a poorly fitted shirt can ruin the entire effect. On the other hand a person who feels that fashion and good looks do not have to stop at the office, then a custom shirt can even give a casual outfit a sense of style and the man an effortlessly well dressed appearance.

Most men spend a lot of time and money on assuring their business suits and dress pants are fitted exactly to the corporate or business climate and the exacting standards a professional must meet in terms of appearance. However, formerly there were only two options to buying a shirt to fit with their suit or dress slacks and that was tailor fitted and made, or off the rack shirts. While tailor made and fitted shirts were usually above standard in terms of quality of fit they were also very expensive. Off the rack, shirts were more affordable but usually poorly fitting and mass-produced.

The New Alternative – How to Buy A Custom Shirt Online

A good online store, which features mens shirts, will make it as easy as possible for even the busiest of individuals to buy a custom shirt online and to this end, online ordering tools simplify matters.

The first screen should present the man with a choice of fabric types with cotton being the best quality and most comfortable choice for most men. Patterns and colors may also be chosen at this time. Once the fabric has been settled on, the online tool will then lead the purchaser to yet another screen where it is time to choose a style for the custom shirt they are designing.

A custom shirt is exclusively made to the individual's styling and size and the first step is to choose a type of collar and cuff for the custom shirt. Whether it is a wide cutaway collar or a set, of French cuffs, the person chooses each detail of the shirt and onscreen photo examples are available to help a man choose the right style for their purpose.

Next, the screen will show the buyer how to pick their measurements and there should be three ways to exactly fit the shirt to the man. The first is to send in a well fitting shirt to the company and have a new shirt made to those measurements. This is great for those who do not trust their own measuring. Alternatively, a man or woman can measure each part of their body, or of a well-fitted shirt and input the information into the form to create their custom shirt. The various ways are provided to ensure that it is as easy as possible for the busy person to achieve the results they desire with the least expense and annoyance.

The last step is to choose a fitting …

With so many designers and trends targeting the svelte body

of the twenty-something, is it possible to look fashionable

as the years pass and your body begins to tell the tale?

Absolutely!

In fact, with a little ingenuity and sleigh-of-hand, it’s

easy to be fashionable and stylish regardless of how many

candles are on your birthday cake.

Now let’s be frank: unless you work out religiously, you

probably don’t have the same body at 40, 50, or 60 that you

did at 25. Time, gravity, and pregnancy all take their toll

on the female body, as does menopause. And when you mix a

mature body with fashions obviously made for a younger

person, it can lead to self-doubt, frustration, and

confusion.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Getting older also

means getting wiser, and like a fine bottle of wine, you’re

improving with age. So you don’t have the same body as

those twenty-somethings you see in magazines or on TV. So

what? Would you REALLY trade everything you’ve learned

since your twenties for the body you had back then?

Probably no sooner than you’d like to re-live puberty,

thank you very much.

So how can you be fashionable without wearing all those

body-conscious clothes so en vogue these days? By

remembering the “3 C’s” when you dress: clean, classic, and

coverage.

CLEAN

Clean lines create a clean silhouette which makes the body

appear more youthful by skimming the trouble spots instead

of calling attention to them. Complicated cuts, seams, and

details usually call for a killer body to pull off, so if

you haven’t got it, steer clear of those styles.

CLASSIC

Classic styles are called classic because they remain in

style year after year. Why? Because they look good on so

many bodies! Sheathes, A-line skirts, flat front pants –

all tend to flatter a variety of shapes. What’s more,

because they remain in style year after year, classics are

easier on the budget than trends.

COVERAGE

Covering appropriately is the key to aging gracefully. If

your upper arms, thighs, and décolletage have all seen

better days, it’s time to cover them up a bit instead of

sharing the wear-and-tear with the world. Now I’m not

talking about draping yourself in a tent for the rest of

your life. Far from it. I’m talking about wearing short

sleeves instead of going sleeveless, Capris instead of

shorts, and modest necklines instead of plunging necklines.

Now I know that covering up the parts that used to turn

heads and draw envy can be tough to take for some women.

Which is precisely why beautiful jewelry and fine fabrics

are the revenge tools of choice for many well-dressed

mature women.

So your bustline isn’t as perky as your twenty-something

daughter or granddaughter. So what? Add a beautiful

necklace and draw envious glances from women of all ages.

Don’t have the same backside you did as a teen? Encase it

in a fine fabric and see how many men go …
