Tip 1: Choose the right size

The most important thing to consider is size.

No matter how nice your shirt is, if it looks too tight or too big, it will look sloppy.

There are two ways to know your size.

① Find out from the size tag of your favorite shirt.

② Measure your own body size.

①How to find out your size from your favorite shirt

You can find out your size that fits your body shape from your favorite clothes.

Most products have size markings on the tag, pocket or inside, so please check them.

②How to measure your body size by yourself

If you do not know what size fits your body shape or if your body shape has recently changed, measure your neck size and the sleeve length with a tape measure to find out your exact size.

Tip 2: Select the right collar type.

The design of the collar can make you really stand out.

You can either choose the shape of the collar according to your taste or choose a design that matches to your body shape to look stylish.

Classic Collar

This is the most popular collar design. It’s the most common collar type that fits any type of suit. We recommend you to have at least one of this classic collar. When wearing a necktie, a smaller knot such as a ‘simple knot’ will give a balanced look.

Spread Collar

This collar has a wide opening to the side and is recommended for people who have a thick or muscular neck. If the collar looks too small for your body, it may not look good. In that case, try ‘spread’ collar to create a balanced look.
