The Shirt Fit – Vol III

Beside from the shirt placket, most shirts feature a plain front without any additional elements other than chest pockets. Modern shirts sometimes feature darts or decorative stitching, but that’s not classic.

 Informal designShirts that have a pocket on the front side falls under the category of informal shirts.

 

Formal design: Shirts that have no pockets on the front and have a plain fall, lie under the category of formal shirts.

 

 Evening and Special Occasions: Some shirts that have detailing not the front such as a tuxedo shirt are shirts that need to be saved for a particular occasion.

 

Types of cuffs

 French Cuffs– Formal

 

Barrel cuffs– Classic and Casual

Height of cuffs: Traditional (outdated) cuffs usually sit between 7.5/8cm, whereas contemporary classic cuffs are about 6 cm and anything less is on the more fashionable side.

Length of the shirt

The length of your shirt is just as important as the width, so always remember to keep it in mind.

Shirts need to be long enough to tuck into the waist band of your trousers and stay there even when you’re raising your arms.

Hem of the shirt

1. Classic Hem–  The tail and front hems are longer than the sides, so it doesn’t come untucked during the day. The classic shirt is worn tucked in.

2. Straight Hem– A casual shirt that you can wear untucked on a more relaxed occasion, straight hems are the way to go.

COLLAR TYPE

There are three main collar types: Pointed, spread and  button-down. A collar of a shirt is a major component that goes in the making the look of the shirt. There are three main collar types: Pointed, Spread and Button-down.

• A shorter man should prioritise a crisp, streamlined look wherever possible, and thus avoid a button-down in a formal context (unnecessary detail) or a spread collar, as this creates the impression of width rather than height.

• For a guy with a heavier build, we recommend a pointed collar as this can be slimming and flattering for a wider face.

• If you’re the tallest guy in the room, a spread collar might be a good bet as it will create a sense of balance.

Final Word: So these are the elements that you need to keep in mind while looking for a perfect fit. Happy Shopping!

The Shirt Fit – Vol II

Some of the key elements that you need to keep in mind before buying a shirt:

Chest: The best shirts allow a full range of motion, fitting comfortably around your chest, across your back, and under your armpits. If you have selected a shirt with a slim cut, it should be comfortable rather than tight.

Shoulders: Check where the sleeve of the shirt attaches to the body. This seam should sit comfortably near to the top of your shoulders; it should not ‘pull’ or billow.

This is what a well fitted shirt looks like.

Collar: This should be comfortable but not roomy. See if you can button it easily and if you can slide two fingers inside: fewer than two and it will be too snug, more than two and it will be too big.


The STRUCTURED FIT sits in between the classic and the slim fit, providing the best of both worlds when it comes to comfort and style. A slightly tapered silhouette with the waist sometimes in combination with small back darts create a trimmer look than the classic fit that looks good even without a jacket without sacrificing comfort. The armholes are high, the sleeves have some room but are not too wide, and the yoke extends to or just past the shoulder bone.

So these are a few parameters that you need to keep in mind before buying a shirt, because wearing well fitted clothes can take you places.

Decoding The Fundamentals

To be looked up to for anything, be it for the kind of work you do or what interests you or simply your personal style, it is on you to know about what goes behind it. To be opinionated & rightly so. To understand the fundamentals behind it all, because let’s face it, our teachers & parents never lied when they said ‘Your fundamentals should be strong!’

We at Mr Button are all about getting them basics right & develop a strong base for one to build up on. The same goes for your wardrobe. You can’t be well equipped if you don’t have fundamentals to back you up! After following the trends that top designers displayed on the fashion runways & what would work for the Indian men, we bring to you our all new collection ‘Fundamentals Of Suave’ which will absolutely live up to it’s name.

The polished gentleman, the confident boss, the charming boy next door. They’ve all been redefined. Here are the #FundamentalsOfSuave decoded, only for you!

 

Plaids. 

It is time we saw this trend as a fashion staple & not just a fad. The mighty plaids have managed to show us time and again that they are not going to let us down. It’s our time now to show them that appreciation. We’ve used a lot of plaids in the form of blazers, shirts, trousers and nehru jackets purely because it is one fundamental that some of the most renowned designers swear by. And to be honest, it’s a plaid suit that they say is the future of menswear fashion! We leave it for you to decide from here.

 

Solids.

A well equipped wardrobe should have enough solids to accentuate the other fundamental pieces like plaids & weaves. Out of the three fundamentals, this my friend is one of utmost importance! Want to try a plaid suit? Break the print with a solid shirt and you’re going to be the next style guru. A solid shirt, blazer or a trouser is something that’ll always come in handy to break the print or just get your colour blocking right. So go stock ‘em up!

 

Weaves.

Call it embroidered or weaves, these have the capability to add that omph factor that your outfit may require at times. Be it you planning to meet your sweetheart’s army dad or just heading for that reunion which is the most talked about affair in town, you won’t have to think twice. The fun patterns weaved on premium fabrics are all set to be one of the fundamentals of your wardrobe which you’ll never want to part with!

 

Final word.

These styles are going to be a part of your wardrobe in ways you could never imagine. They are what you need to be up pace with what’s trending & tell the world that you know your s**t!

Our signature Structured fit is what you should be interested in. After our own research, we’ve successfully created the perfect shirt in different sizes which fits well even to people who have that tad bit extra weight holding on their body.

It can also be referred to as a tailored shirt, and gives a more tailored, elegant shape, perfect for wearing both tucked and untucked. It helps accentuate your slim waist while keeping it well fitted around your chest and shoulders. Anyone who has broad shoulders, or a much narrower torso compared to the rest of their body is going to benefit from the structured shirt.

Here are some of the elements of a structured fit:

Shoulder– Seam should meet at the corner of your shoulder bone.

Collar: should be able to slide 2 fingers when closed.

Armholes: High enough without causing restricted motion.

Sleeve: Neither tight or billowy, should allow natural motion.

Torso: should not give more than 3-4” of fabric when pulled lightly away from the body.

Length of Sleeve: Should end where your palm meets your wrist about 1” beyond your wrist bone.

THE PEA-COAT | WINTER LOOKBOOK

A pea-coat is one of the few items that every fashion connoisseur and the general public will agree it’s worth spending good money on. The general thumb rule I would say is that you should buy one coat per year, which will see you through autumn and winter. Also I said “coat” and not jackets, those we can buy as many as we want. Basically the logic is to pick one coat and spend good amount to avoid wearing something which looks like outerwear but plays the similar role as one. It’s not just quality you need to consider, though – longevity is important too. With winters in mind, you would like to look at a style which is classic yet goes with everything. By classic and versatile doesn’t mean go for the same old black, I am sure you would have the black hanging in your wardrobe right now. So what else you can try?

There are multiple options available from long coats to waxed jackets. But one style which have been there and is ruling the runways as well as the streets is a Pea Coat.
The peacoat is one of those jackets that quietly makes men more stylish without shouting too loud about it. Worn successfully by celebrities and royalties, it’s a style that works on everyone, which is why it’s gone viral and stayed viral since it first appeared way back in the 1800s. What’s the secret to its enduring success? Like most menswear classics, it’s versatile. You can suit it up and wear with your classic shirt and scarf and at the same time play with your joggers and a turtle neck on weekends. Well I obviously paired it the way I enjoy dressing up, with classic white shirt and trousers.

 

 

Now let’s come to the color Camel. The very light brown shade which we all own may be in form of a trench coat or a formal derby. Even now, some men still take a bit of converting to camel. Certainly, it’s not as safe as some less showy shades. If you’re among the sartorial men, then rejoice: the color is practically omnipresent for all the seasons. Yes, you will always see camel in some or the pother way in the winter collection. From the cashmere sweaters to a classic two piece suit, it’s as I said, omnipresent. This also adds an interesting color palette to your wardrobe. This color coordinates itself with what you wear it with and makes every outfit look different.

 

With this coat, I paired this stylish cyanish blue trousers with minimal beige checks. The beige and blue compliments each other and creates a fashionable contrast. And what’s better than pairing this with a classic white shirt.

 

 

When it comes to accessories and shoes, I have kept it minimal and dark so that there is a contrast of color. I am wearing dark brown oxfords and a brown leather wristband which complements the camel color. Also I have stuck to my favorite silver metal watch. The double breasted pea coat gives a very classy retro feel and therefore try to jazz it up more with big retro sunglasses. You can always opt for classic aviators as well for this look.

 

 

It all started with a camel color overcoat. It’s not quite the alpha and omega of go-to essentials, but it’s up there. At the same time, it’s a look-at-me statement piece that can turn any outfit into an ‘alphet’ in a way that common navy or grey outerwear simply can’t. As you’d expect from a tailored coat, you can layer it over sweaters as well as tee shirts or shirts. As you can see I am wearing it with a shirt because we down south are not as blessed with winters as up there. Camel is on the lighter side, so I’d suggest anchoring it with colors which can enhance the color more. You can always choose the dark shades like navy or charcoal but the fun of mixing it with other pastels is something else. It just elevates the whole look and feel of the jacket.
