Importance of the Men’s Dress Shirt

Ask a woman this simple question: what can enhance the look, personality and appearance of a man in a matter of moments? The answer is a quality men’s dress shirt.

A men’s dress shirt can help reorganize the way you look. A dress shirt is comfortable and can be cool, fashionable, elegant, stylish and it is the easiest way to express your personality and style. You can wear them anytime and for any purpose.

The shirt is the most noticeable of the dress items. It is often said that the dress shirt is the first alphabet of person’s body language. You need to understand that the first impression may not always be the best impression if you pick the wrong shirt. Selecting a suitable and matching dress shirt is very important, and we recommend a woman’s advice. It is important to take into consideration the occasion, color, design, dimension, fabric and collar.

  1. Dress for the Occasion: Each kind of occasion demands a particular set of color and design.
  2. Know Your Dimensions: The most important aspect is not the sleeve length but the fit on the shoulders. If the fit at the shoulders is perfect and the sleeves are too short, please do not be alarmed. Simply fold back the sleeves. In such case, we recommend selecting a couture shirt with double side fabric.
  3. Color: color is all around us and has more influence over our moods then you might think. When it comes to fashion, color is a powerful way to send non-verbal messages about your confidence and ability. A men’s dress shirt color implies the level of success, background, status, authority, personality and more. A man who wears a pink couture shirt actually creates an air of confidence because any man who dares to where it must be just that.
  4. Design: There are endless impressive displays of men’s dress shirt styles and designs to choose from. You need to have a wide variety of designs and styles (different collar, stippled, solid colors, different collar designs, different button styles etc…)
  5. Fabrics: Cotton is by far the most common fabric for dress shirts. All men’s cotton shirt are not created equal. Pay close attention to the fabric quality and please diversify. For instance, your closet must include a linen shirt.
  6. Collar: the collar is the most important aspect of a men’s dress shirt. We discussed that point in a previous article.(LINK)

All men should adhere to this advice: Look Fabulous!



  1. Hey loved the tips on shirt’s, I totally agree with you! However i would like to add that Ties have an important role in the overall apperance and if you combine a nice tie properly with a shirty you can rock that look!depending on the dress mood ties can add alot to the appearance.

    1. mmmm. a tie. Nice suggestion. I’m not a Tie guy but you are right, a tie can drastically change the look. I think that we will have to write a piece on the “importance of the Tie”.

  2. Which Modus Couture dress shirts would match best with a cream-colored linen suit? I like the Boka 5-FW07. Thanks!

    1. Hi Mark, thanks for visiting our blog. You asked a good question. With a cream colored linen suit, the Boka 5-fw07 that you mentioned is a good choice, you can also try the General NP shirts (they are linen shirts). I also think that a blue shirt (like the general fa 8-ss08), pink shirt (like general 16-ss08) or a striped blue french cuff shirt (the green 26) will all be good choices. If you have any question Mark, feel free to contact us.
      Enjoy your day.

  3. There’s one important aspect of dress shirts you’ve overlooked – length. If you may have observed some of the runway looks from the recent shows, there were sharp looks of elongated shirts ; and how the length can be dressed up or down like toning down a corporate shirt basically through tucking or untucking it.

  4. In this summer’s fashion so far, has there been any noteable celebrity dress shirt wearers? I hoped to see British tennis great white hope shopping in London for dress wear, but his opportunity for champions dinner was taken away from him by an American.

  5. Absolutely wonderful tips. You nailed it all. What more can I say. Honestly your list are correct, however most men missed some of these tips. I hope they will be able to see your blogs. I will share it as well to my friends so that they will know what they missed. How nice of you to discuss this topic. I will surely visit these site again for more interesting topics.
