How to Choose Men’s Shirt Size

Whatever type of man shirt you wear, it’s necessary to be in possession of two crucial information to properly determine your shirt size: round collar and sleeve length.

The neck circumference

The shirts are designed on a sewing pattern based on the choker or “neck size”, the latter is equal to the circumference of your neck.

To best determine the size of your man shirts, we advise you to take the measure from the first button at the top of neck to the lapel. Then everything will depend on the felt that you want to have with your shirt for men, in fact if you want a very fitted shirt on the collar, do not change the size obtained, but if you are looking to be more “at ease” on the pass, we strongly encourage you to slightly increase the size obtained (preferably a few millimeters, not beyond a centimeter).

Also remember to take into account a possibly narrowing caused by the wash!

The choker

The neck is equal to the horizontal neck circumference measured at the Adam’s apple.

To measure your neck, here is some advice to follow:

  • Use a tape or string.
  • Stand up straight, preferably against a wall and look straight ahead.
  • Opt for a total relaxation, maintain normal breathing.
  • Pass the ribbon or string around your neck just at the Adam’s apple, tape or twine should be well horizontal, and maintains a normal (not too tight or relaxed).

If you use a string, remember to see the distance on a set, you will obtain your neck.

Board size: a shirt man adjusted optimally for your height should allow you to achieve any kind of movement, you should in any case be compressed. Also, do not forget a shirt to length should in no case the pants when you raise your arms.

The sleeve length

Today, many men’s shirt manufacturers offer, for the same neck, different sleeve length to meet the difference silhouette of their clientele.

The sleeve length is measured very easily, it is the difference between your shoulder and upper thumb. To measure your sleeve length, stand up straight and use ribbon or twine meter. Then straighten your arms vertically and take the measurement on the two points indicated.

We advise you to help you get to the nearest size of reality. Also, if you use a string, remember to refer to length found on a set, you will obtain the sleeve length. Finally, if you want more comfort, feel free to add a few millimeters, shirts sleeves tend to withdraw at the slightest movement.

If you wear jewelry, watch or other wrist in winter, according to itypetravel.com, consider taking a casual shirt with sleeves too tight, this will allow you to feel better at the wrists.
