DESCRIPTION

Buying the perfect shirt need not be a stressful experience! With a little help from this infographic you can avoid bulging seams, gaping buttons and balloon-like silhouettes. All you need is a couple of minutes and a tape measure! Simply follow the measurement guidelines below, and youre one step closer to finding the perfect shirt. It doesn't stop there though, once you've found your measurements, you need to decide on the right fit to flatter your body shape. Classic: Has more room around the core, arms and shoulders. This look never goes out of style and is suitable for all occasions. Tailored or Slim: Cut closer in to the body for a flattering fit. Theyre cut a little larger in the shoulders and taper in towards a smaller waist to show off an athletic figure. Super-Slim: A more extreme version of the slim fit. The taper at the waist is much more dramatic and the room around the arms and shoulders is reduced. Once you've decided on the style that suits you best, all you need to worry about is choosing a colour that compliments your skin tone and youre ready to go, just make sure that your tie is straight before you leave the house, and youll make an unforgettable first impression!
