Tailored shirt: let’s start from the neck
The shirt collar may seem like a small detail but in reality, it represents the most exposed and delicate part of it. The type of collar depends on many aspects: the personal taste but also the shape of the neck and shoulders of the customer, there are many types of collar to choose based on taste and intended use.
The Italian collar is the narrowest and most traditional of collars. More formal but still very versatile, it is perfect when combined with ties with a small or medium knot. It has narrow and elongated tips, suitable for round faces and shorter necks. The semi-Italian collar is a middle ground, with a classic but less formal style, the tips widen slightly at the end and are perfect for dressing taller men with longer necks, and go perfectly with ties.
The French-style and semi-French necks, on the other hand, have shorter and more open tips. The French collar is contemporary, it has a high width that leaves a part of the collar strip visible. Both of them are more informal than Italian ones, especially for the semi-French, which offers an alternative between casual and formal, for the man who wants a tailored shirt for any occasion.
Going more and more towards the casual, we meet the Button Down Long collar. Born in the United States in the late 1950s, it expresses a Freestyle vibe but is also suitable for more youthful looks. The sails are longer than the previous ones, from 7.5 to 9.5 centimeters. The Korean collar, with its unique and recognizable shape, was born as a casual style but now lends itself to many situations of use. Last but not least, the tuxedo shirt is suitable for very special occasions, and has 5 cm long neck sails, in addition to the unique button and cuff fastening features.
Button placket and cuffs: a full personalized shirt
The cuffs are details not to be underestimated for the men’s tailored shirt. From the more classic beveled to the rectangular, it has many shapes dedicated also for the cufflinks. The beauty of a made-to-measure shirt also lies in being able to take some liberties, for example by shortening the cuff where the watch is usually held and finally avoiding uncomfortable movements of the arm to consult it.
The buttoning of the tailored shirt can be also customized according to the needs. Without placket for the most elegant shirts, with traditional placket for informal or sporty ones. The hidden lacing is the most suitable for the tuxedo, while the popover with short cannon makes it the ideal garment for leisure time.
The fabric that makes the difference
The fabrics that best suit a made-to-measure shirt are cotton, linen and silk. The choice of fabrics is closely linked to the occasion and season of use. Modernity has moved the limit of the occasions a little further, making possible the use of a garment in many different situations. Fashion is becoming free from overly restrictive codes and return to its main protagonist: the man who wears the personalized garment with style and elegance.
Furthermore, by relying on a tailor’s shop, you can be sure of the quality of the fabric. 100% pure, from a controlled production chain, with a decidedly lower environmental impact compared to mixed fabrics and polyester.
