How to Style a Tailored Fit Dress Shirt For Tall Men
Tailored fit shirts are a fantastic choice for anyone who wants to look smart, professional and well-dressed. You can pair a tailored shirt with a button-down coat and trousers for an easy fall or winter look that everyone can wear!
A tailored-fit shirt will have straight seams, which makes it rectangular and boxy when spread out flat on the floor. It should be tucked in and not have excess fabric in the pockets or waistband. You should also find the sleeves to be tapered without being too tight or constricting.
Unlike slim fits, tailored fit shirts are slightly more tapered than a slim fit shirt, and will curve toward the waist rather than being a straight line down the body. This makes them more forgiving than slim shirts but they are still not designed for large or athletic bodies that might have a hard time fitting in them.
How to style a tailored fit dress shirt for tall men
Tailored shirts are made to fit the body of the purchaser, who will be measured and fitted for the shirt. The fit will be based on the buyer’s body measurements, which can range from very small to very large.
If you have a larger or more athletic build, this is not the best option for you as it will be too tight at the arms, chest and waist area.
If you have a smaller or more athletic build, tailored fit shirts are the better choice for you as they are slightly looser than slim and can be more forgiving at the waist, chest and arms areas. They also give you more room to tailor the fit to your unique body size which is a great advantage.
