An essential piece of men's wardrobe, the shirt is not chosen lightly. The challenge ? Find THE shirt that will flatter you, meet your expectations in terms of comfort, and, of course, be perfect for the occasion that you are wearing it.
Choose one men's shirt is no small feat! To make the right choice, several criteria come into play. The cut, certainly, but not only that. The choice of material is also important, as is that of the collar, color or patterns. So many elements which, put together, give the shirt a style of its own.
Choosing a men's shirt based on its cut
Formerly used as underwear, the shirt has become, year after year, a real fashion accessory. And today, wear a shirt is more than ever a matter of style. To choose it, you must first look at its cut. This must, on the one hand, suit your body shape, and on the other hand, seem comfortable to you.
- The regular, or straight, cut is a classic cut, which generally suits all types of silhouettes. We particularly appreciate it for its comfortable and relaxed side.
- More fitted, the slim cut – called slim fit – is a closer fit. Tightened at the waist and back, it elegantly shapes the silhouette.
- The fitted cut is ultimately the good in-between between the straight shirt and the slim shirt.
Choosing a shirt based on your style
If the choice of cut is essential when you decide tobuy a shirt, that’s not all! Other significant details are also of major importance. Like the shirt collars. Starting with the famous Italian collar, rather flared. Very fashionable and in tune with the times, we find it on some of Vicomte A.’s best-sellers, such as Clovis shirt or the Conrad shirt. The French collar, straighter, is more classic. The buttoned collar – known as button down – offers, for its part, a more sporty and relaxed look. Finally, very chic, the mandarin collar is distinguished from other collars by its absence of flaps.
The choice of color or pattern is also important. A solid color shirt or White shirt will in fact be more formal and sober than a patterned shirt, dotted with bright colors. And at Vicomte A., patterns have a special place. Each season, the brand reinvents its classics with creative and sophisticated seasonal patterns. But maybe you'll fall for a traditional plaid shirt, a delicate floral shirt, or a casual shirt striped ?
Driven by a very pronounced taste for detail, Vicomte A. likes, for her part, to add a few subtle and refined touches, specific to her identity, in her different models of shirts. Like its logo, carefully embroidered on the chest, which is revealed by color contrast.
