COMPATIBILITY OF THE SUIT JACKET AND SHIRT
Unfortunately, most of us purchasing appeal for our wardrobe without having a clear plan behind of each item, we are occasionally buying one piece at a time without taking in consideration if this item will work with other products in wardrobe. Also, we do not educate ourselves how to check proper fit and compatibility of the items in the wardrobe.
In this article, I am explaining why you should not purchase a shirt without trying with your suit jacket.
NEVER PURCHASE DRESS SHIRT WITHOUT TRYING WITH YOUR SUIT JACKET OR COAT FOR FOLLOWING REASONS:
1) To check the collar gap between the shirt collar and jacket collar as well as lapels gap, if you see the gap between means the shirt is not right cut or fit for you and better do not purchase.
2) Shirt seating point on the body depends on shirt pattern, Cut and your body shape. The shirt may seat:
a) On neck only.
Check if any extra fabric on your shoulder and chest part when you are wearing a jacket. If you see additional fabrics means the cut and pattern problem and shirt will not be comfortable also will not help for your professional look and feel.
b) On shoulder only.
In this case, you will see extra fabrics on your backside of the neck, which will create un-comfort when you are wearing a jacket or coat and well as when you wear a shirt only, you will feel un-comfort on the neck or shoulder especially when you walk and do the extreme movement
c) On the shoulder and neck.
In this option shirt shoulder and collar will follow your body shape, this way the shirt will play suspension role for the jacket and will create harmony and smooth movement between your body and coat. It is the proper option.
