Choosing the right men’s casual shirts for your wardrobe may seem like an easy task, but there is really a lot more that goes into it than meets the eye. There are actually a number of things that you should be aware of when you choose a new shirt and some things, you may not have even considered before. By keeping the following in mind, however, you will be able to buy the perfect mens casual shirts for you.

Think About Size

Size is very important when it comes to men’s shirts, even those that are casual. If you have never been measured before, get your measurements taken. Most department stores will do this as a courtesy or you can even do it at home by recruiting a friend and reading a guide, which are usually available online. Though this might seem like a hassle, when you know your measurements you will be able to find a shirt that now only looks good, it will be comfortable too.

Quality Will Certainly Count

Even though it may be tempting to buy a cheaper shirt in order to save money, you will find that it will be much more expensive in the long run. The cheaper the shirt, the faster it will wear out, sometimes in a matter of weeks or months. However, a high quality shirt will last for years, assuming it is made of high quality cotton, like Egyptian cotton, or silk. You will also find that a high quality shirt will have less noticeable and stronger stitching, so you won’t notice and fraying.

Consider Color and Style

Finally, you will need to think about the color and style of your new shirt. When it comes to color, you want to choose something that will not only go with your wardrobe, but something that you feel comfortable in. Blue is generally a very safe color if you are in doubt, but many men will like to make an impression and choose a brighter color like pink, orange or even bright green. When it comes to patterns on the shirt, of course a safe choice is no pattern, but a pattern can also bring a lot to the shirt, especially if you want to make a statement. Just keep in mind, that shirts with patterns are a bit more difficult to match.
