The true test of the slim-fit shirt
The slim-fit shirt is everywhere these days, and for good reason. The style, which is cut slimmer through the chest and waist and features tapered sleeves and slightly higher armholes, can give you a sleeker, more tailored and modern look, since it eliminates that unflattering billowing fabric at the waist often seen on men wearing traditional or classic-fit shirts.
But many men make the mistake of trying on a slim-fit shirt only while standing. Of course, when we’re standing, we’re at our slimmest. To know for sure if a slim-fit shirt works, try sitting down. If the shirt pulls and the buttons are straining while you sit, you know you need to go up a size or go for a roomier cut. After all, you’re going to have to sit in that shirt eventually!
