Being new to this forum and new to dressing properly I've searched this forum and outside fashion blogs for what consitutes a proper dress shirt fit but i've become stuck. Most sf members seem to advocate slim fit shirts but my question is how a slim fit shirt incoporates into what is proper fit. Am i to tackle slim fit shirts as the norm and the much blousier shirts of Cary Grant and Fred Astaire(advocated by Alan Flusser)as a era of style long gone? Or is it the opposite? Its just that I want to start building a wardrobe where the shirts are timeless and not victim to how perhaps tv and hm ads tell me to dress. Ive always had the impression that the above mentioned gentlemen wore a style of dress that was timeless but I fear that in emulating their way of dressing im wasting my money on shirts that initially fit poorly as of todays standards. Appreciate any response from those more wiser.
