Harad The Art of choosing the right T-Shirt The credit crunch has meant that many of us have had to pull in the purse strings of late, and one area that seems to suffer from our lack of money is our fashion. The economy has meant that clothing has taken a back seat, particularly for men.
The consequences of this is that we actually have to take greater care when choosing our clothes, as a fashion faux pas cannot be rectified until the following pay day. With less money, we must consider our fashion choices much more carefully. Here, we will consider men's t-shirts, as these tend to form the focal part of any outfit and can make or break our overall look.
1. With reference to menâ€™s t-shirts, size is very important, an ill-fitting shirt will look awful, but a well-fitted shirt should have you turning heads wherever you go. One of the problems we have regarding sizing with men's t-shirts is that many men emulate their fathers, and in previous generations, men were less concerned with fashion, but more so with comfort, they tended to wear baggy because it felt comfy. Avoid this trap. A t-shirt fits well when if it skims the body gently, there should be a gap of between 3mm and 7mm between the skin and material, and no more and no less. It is vitally important that a little extra money be paid to ensure that the t-shirt is of a high quality, this way, shrinkage does not occur, which would clearly damage the fit, and always follow the washing instructions on the label.
2. There are many popular men's t-shirt designs, but in order to be truly fashionable, you should own at least one retro style t-shirt. These t-shirts are fantastically versatile, suiting many styles of clothing - although you should only wear such t-shirts in a casual setting.
3. Color tends to be a big problem for men, particularly concerning fashion. In part, this is because a large proportion of men - far more than women are actually color-blind. If you are such a person, then seek the help of others to help you decide upon color, as colors that appear harmonious to you, may appear to clash to people who can see the whole color spectrum. In terms of colors that match, the neutral coolers tend to go with everything. Neutral coolers are white, grey, black, brown, and cream. Color combinations to avoid at all costs are; yellow with purple; red with green; and anything fluorescent. Menâ€™s t-shirts should form the basis of your wardrobe, and you should work the rest of your outfit around the t-shirt, this is why it is fundamentally important to choose wisely, but if in doubt, seek the help of those around you, either a girlfriend, friend, or a shop assistant.
