How Your T-Shirt Should Fit

Men's Style Advice: How Your T-Shirt Should FitFor most of my clients, Summer means t-shirt time. How does yours fit? Don’t laugh — even though it’s just a t-shirt, it should fit you as well as all of the other items in your wardrobe. Below are 4 key points to watch for when determining whether to buy that next beefy-t:

 

Men's Style Advice: How Your T-Shirt Should Fit1) The shoulder seam should hit directly on the edge of your shoulder. When a t-shirt is too big, these seams hang off your shoulder and make you look sloppy. But wearing a shirt with the seam right on the edge of your shoulder will make you look fit and trim.

2) The length of your sleeve should hit about halfway down your bicep. Again, this will be the most flattering to your build.

4) The hem of the t-shirt should hit about halfway down the fly of your pants. Any longer than that will throw off the balance of your upper and lower body (aka make you look short), and anything much shorter than that won’t give you enough coverage.

Now, it’s your turn. Try on your favorite t-shirt…how does it measure up?

Cheers,
Julie
