    this pic is bad advice with some truth to it.
    slim fit shirts like its trying to sell you on look bad on all builds imo.
    slim fit shirts make bad tailoring and cheap fabric look a lot nicer than it normally would.
    but the pic they use as an example is even worse. loose fitting traditional cut shirts should still be tailored to your body. and having quality fabrics that drape well becomes all the more important. if a shirt cost you less than 100 bucks before tailoring just don’t wear it, for the most part.

    Not with jeans except with a blazer. I never tuck into chinos, it looks dorky. only with tailored wool/linen trousers. Needs to fit perfect if you’re going to go without the belt

    Blousing looks good so long as your body is in shape.

      this.
      only tubby guys are concerned about blousing. i have 6 pack abs 8% body fat inverted triangle torso and i think i look better in a traditional or trim cut shirt than a modern slim shirt.
      it can look worse than untucked and slightly awkward from directly front on, so the mirror deceives. having your shirt billow a bit at the waist makes your frame look better and more masculine at all other angles.

      The problem with this approach is that it ignores reality and nuance, and then you have people who don’t understand not all looks work for all people jumping on it and acting like fashion is a binary yes/no

      1: There’s a difference between billowy shirts that flow and drape, and sloppy ill fitting boxy shirts

      2: If you’re not twinkmaxxing, slim fit shirts look sexxxcore at best, equally cheap and ill fitting at worst

      3: Trouser choice is important. A billowy shirt tucked into slim trousers looks clownish unless you really know what you’re aiming for and are messing about with silhouettes. Likewise a shirt that’s slim and tucked into loose pants makes your torso disproportionately smaller and makes it look like you’re not in good shape.

      One look isn’t right, one look isn’t wrong. Don’t latch onto concepts as if they are be all, end all. Experiment a little.

      Hell yeah my brother. I have several RL Yarmouth oxfords, they’re built like tanks and will probably outlast me.

      I wish this pic showed the full fit, but it illustrates the point. The shirt is loose and billowy, but look at the trousers. They’re full cut, draping out and away from his crotch, you can see the pleats which also ad volume. The fit is loose, it’s comfortable, it’s the type of thing that also looks better in person and in motion because it just flows, there’s no awkward pulling or bunching no matter how it moves

      A slim fit shirt would look ridiculous with those chinos,just like that shirt would look ridiculous with slim fit trousers.

      i have like 8 of these shirts deadstock

      Where the hell did you find them deadstock?

        Unironically interested to know the difference.

          Alot of it depends on your body, the fabric of the shirt and making sure you get the right size.

          First, the sleeves can’t be too long, neither can the torso. Second the neck can’t be too wide. Cotton works best, linen does pretty well too, synthetic fabrics flat out don’t work.

          Basically you need it to have enough room in the waist, shoulders and arms to be able to have a full range of motion without your shirt coming out of your pants. The armholes need to be cut generously too without being too high as well, the shoulder seam should also hit a little further down your arm than a sport coat. The rise of your pants also plays a part in making the look, billowy shirts don’t look as good with rise pants because it messes with the torso proportions.

          Easiest way to do this would be to buy a vintage Brooks Brothers or Ralph Lauren oxford on eBay, spend 25 bucks or less. Get the right neck and sleeve size, let’s say 15.5 neck and 34 sleeve. Then go to Walmart and get a generic dress shirt that’s poly-cotton, and get your normal alpha size, let’s say a large. Then compare how they both look in the mirror.

            nylon/cotton and poly/cotton blend shirts can drape very well. not all weaves and blends are the same a lot don’t but some do. useful to know for stuff like travel where you might want a shirt with a wide range of weather performance that doesn’t wrinkle but also need to look acceptable.
            100% synthetic never really looks good though. or when it does its a thicker type of shirt and being made from synthetic makes it uncomfortable to wear (like a polyester flannel)

            Ive heard the opposite advice on armholes – larger ones will pull the fabric untucked easier. Ive compared nice blazers with high & tight armholes with cheaper ones with large holes and the former looked and felt noticeably better in motion.

          • Anonymous says:

            The opposite is true for tailoring, sport coats and suits need to be cut differently from shirts. Also the construction is different, a suit that’s full canvas will behave differently than a shirt.

            Think about it, would you expect "drape" from a slim cut shirt?

      please, I beg of you, stop supporting the blue jays. Get an expo’s hat if you want. Youre supporting some of the worst owners in baseball. It’s not /fashion/ to take this abuse.

      It depends on the shirt. In OP pic the shirt is too formal and the guy just looks like a dork because it’s like he’s wearing blue jeans in a formal occasion which is stupid. But with a shirt like this that has a looser fit, natural colors and rolled up sleeves it looks way better.

      All just depends on the shirt.

    close
    looks best when you have it exactly at the level of looseness where you have exactly enough room for full mobility, but the part you missed is: and no more than is required. you should still usually tailor loose shirts, just not that much, and that’s what most guys wearing them get wrong. if you have the right pants and the right physique & body shape it will look killer, you will have full mobility your shirt won’t pull up through the day and most importantly you will be able to go this loose without a muffin top.
    of course you can wear a shirt looser

      As opposed to what? A gaygy zoomer with broccoli hair and androgynous body that can’t grow a beard?
