Men’s shirt

Men's shirt

Shirts are an integral part of our daily wardrobe, but have you ever wondered about the differences between women’s and men’s shirts design? The truth is, due to differences in body shape, there are significant design variations between the two.

Let’s take the example of traditional men’s dress shirts, there are several design features that are commonly associated with this style.


Here are key tips to keep in mind while designing men’s shirt styles.

1 Shoulder slope

The shoulder slope on men’s shirts are typically about 1/4 inches, and the backside is slightly smaller than the front. Additionally, the shoulder seam is not straight in the center. It is about 2.5 cm forward from the front, which helps match the shoulder slope to ensure the garment does not move backward while wearing.

2 Classic collar styles

Traditional dress shirts usually feature a pointed collar, which can be worn with or without a tie. Other classic collar styles include the button down collar and the spread collar.

3 French cuffs

Men’s shirts often feature French cuffs, which are folded back and fastened with cufflinks. Mostly Long sleeve shirt with sleeve placket, and 1 – 2 buttons on cuffs, this makes more easily while wearing. There are also short sleeve shirts but not as formal as the long one.

4 Tailored fit

They are typically designed to fit close to the body, with a tapered waist and high armholes, more like a slim fit shirts. While casual shirts mostly in loose fit.

5 Quality materials

Traditional dress shirts are often made from high-quality fabrics such as fine cotton, linen, or silk.

6 Subtle patterns

Mostly in solid colors, feature subtle patterns such as stripes or checks, but they typically avoid bold prints or bright colors.

7 Formal placket

The center front feature a formal placket, which is a strip of fabric that covers the buttons for a more polished appearance.

8 Back yoke

Back chest need cutting, need to take 1 cm out so the size is fitting better, due to the men’s body shape back is bigger than front, so the shirts for men back chest need slightly bigger than front chest.

9 Fusing

Collar, placket, pocket, cuff, sleeve placket need to add fusing, this makes the shirt stand out.

Overall, traditional dress shirts are designed to be classic and timeless, with a focus on quality materials and tailored fit. They are typically worn in formal or business settings and are meant to convey a sense of professionalism and sophistication.
