How should a dress shirt fit - Page 3

post #31 of 46
I like how the shirt fit at the waist, enough if not too tight or loose. Just for interest is the collor point or cutaway?

this is one shirt i have i posted in waywt thread , though ive kinda reconsidered it... heh. (btw its what i occasionally wore to work as a waiter)

The other thing I would find awful with a shirt like this is that, for me, it would cause sweating. With the shirt tight around you, right up there in your underarm, there's not much room for the underarm to breathe.

cttb. Deoderant would prevent the sweating.

Deodorant doesn't stop sweating - it covers up any smell. Anti-perspirant helps reduce sweating but doesn't necessary eliminate it.

I was referring to the sweating round the armpits. It does help sweating. Atleast mine does.

Deodorant is for scent, anti-persperant is for the sweat issue.

No. Some prefer a deodorant because it doesn't have the "cancer-causing" aluminum-tetrasomething.

This may come as news to some, but it is still possible for some people to sweat while wearing anti-perspirant. Wearing a shirt that is very tight, particularly up in the underarms, is one causative factor.

The Hollywood answer seems to be Botox your armpits on Oscars night

This post seems to have been dead for a while, but what about those of us who have a little extra meet around the middle. My waist and chest measurements are relatively equal. Do these same rules apply?

I have been pondering over the fit of shirt collars. lately I have acquired a dislike for all my shirt because I believe the collars to ''ride too low'' on my neck.
Is there any guidelines on this? Preferably I would like something that sits half way between the joint of the clavicle + sternum and the adams apple.
Is the solution to choose a tighter collar or is it a matter of how ''tall'' a collar is cut?

hard to give a good answer without seeing a photo.
a tighter collar will sit higher.
are you wearing ties?
what brand of shirt do you usually wear.

softer lining will sti lower
but some RTW brands the collars can be pressed outwards, rather then having the band sit upward.

One consideration: A collar that is cut higher will remain high when worn open while a lower cut collar worn tight will sink down when worn open.
