The Perfect Shirt to go with the right tie

The shirt is made with two meters of fabric. The quality of these two meters will determine the overall appearance of the shirt. When in contact with the skin should be, if possible, 100% cotton. Failing with polyester mix. It will perspire worse, but it will iron better. Although today, the cottons just wrinkle and iron very well.

There are two types of basic cuffs. On the one hand, French cuff, which is the most formal. It bends up and is fastened with cufflinks. On the other hand, barrel types. They are the most common and will be fastened with two buttons.

Fundamentally, there are three types of collars:

Button Down or Neck Button: Perfect for work or casual dress and no tie. It was invented in 1900 by John Brooks, inspired by the shirts of the polo players who used them so that the spikes did not flap during the game.

Italian or Open: Its length depends on the width of the flaps and ties (Royals Tie preferably). Let the protagonist of the outfit be the tie, wearing as you like, a more or less thick knot.

Hidden Button: It owes its fame to Eduardo VIII. When wearing the buttons fastened and hidden, they give volume to the tie.

The eyelet can be seen or hidden, the smaller the stitches, the better. If it is hidden, the shirt is more formal; if it is in plain sight, it loses seriousness. The idea is to have a button on the opening of the sleeve. On hot days it allows you to roll up your sleeve more easily. The buttons must be sewn crosswise. The sleeve should be wide and, when the fist reaches, fold in folds.

Final Words

With or without a tie, the neck should be kept straight by itself. For this reason, the choice of lining, which is made of cotton, is fundamental — lightweight for sport or casual and rigid models for a dress model.

The armholes should never be too tight. The sleeve, in addition, has to be long enough to protrude a centimeter of the jacket with the arm bent.
