Dos and Don'ts of Wearing a Shirt

Looking around in any city, bar, or mall, it has become obvious that many men have not figured out how to wear a shirt properly.
Listed below are simple Do's and Don'ts that will enable a man to make sure he is dressed appropriately, and with a little discipline and work, look good.

#Tuck your shirt into your pants when wearing a sport coat or blazer
#Slim-fit shirts if you’re skinny, have the tailor take sides in on baggy shirts

#Tuck your shirt in at all times, unless the bottom hem is straight and shorter than your hip bone, as is the case with many casual shirts.
#Ensure your shirt fabric complements your tie. Sea Island shirt cotton is very light and works best with pure silk ties. A herringbone shirt weave is a textured style and fine pattern that works best with a thicker woven silk tie. Pima cotton is very lightweight and therefore is complemented by lightweight silk, cotton and linen ties.

#Wear a shirt darker than your suit to work.
#Wear the wrong collar size. You’ll know you’ve chosen the right collar size when you can comfortably fit your index and middle fingers side by side between your neck and your collar.
#Clash your shirt and tie. Ensure that your shirt pattern is noticeably different to that of your tie. A fine-stripe shirt looks good with a textured knit tie and a bold stripe shirt looks best with a dark solid tie. A check shirt looks good with a dark solid tie with a subtle pattern.
#Ruin the look by wearing an unflattering collar. If you have a round face, wear a shirt with a point collar; if you have a narrow face, choose a cutaway (or spread) collar and if you have a long neck opt for a high-sitting collar.
