Buying Dress Shirts Online

When you want to buy dress shirts online, your first step is to measure your neck, arms and chest. Begin from the top down. If you don’t have a soft measuring tape used by tailors, simply use a length of string and then lay it out along a standard measuring tape.

Measuring for the best fit

Before beginning your dress-for-success-transformation, it’s important to know your size.

Not just around the hips, but everywhere. A suit that fits poorly expresses to the business world that you don’t take the time to ensure things are done correctly and to the best of your ability.

It might sound shallow, but subconsciously if people see you in an outfit that doesn’t fit right, your services might not fit right for them.

Sweater rules

Some sweaters are lean and others are big and chunky. The first rule of thumb is that your top and bottom halves need to match. If you’re wearing a big, chunky, rugged fisherman knit sweater, your bottom needs to be rugged, too.

Clean and pressed

Even business casual attire should be clean, well pressed, and not show wear.  The nicest khakis after 100 washings may not be your best choice. Carefully inspect new clothes for tags, and all clothes for dangling threads, etc. (as with interview attire).

What color is your tie?

Even though any color tie will match to a gray suit and white dress shirt, pick a classic necktie color, such as navy blue or burgundy red.

Striped ties in blue and/or red are also great. Stay away from novelty ties, or ties with too bright of a color such as bright red, pink, orange, yellow, and so on.
