How To Choose From Our Range of Men’s Shirts
Shirts are amongst the most diverse garments that any man can own. There are vast
differences between styles, colours, patterns and cuts that make all the difference for
whatever occasion you are choosing the shirt – work, a wedding, a night out with friends,
a date or simply lounging around the home – you will seek something different with
each of these requirements. How do you choose the right men’s shirts to help you look
the part and feel great whatever the occasion? Let our simple guide help you choose the
right shirt for you.
Shirts for men are broadly broken down into two basic design groups. The first thing
you need todecide in choosing from our range of men’s shirts is whether you are buying
a formal or casual shirt.If you are looking for a garment for work, you need to consider
formal shirts primarily. If it is ageneral garment for going to the bar, then you will need a
casual shirt. There is really only one major difference – a formal shirt has a spread collar
that points up under which you can easily fit a tie. A casual shirt tends to have a flatter collar
and buttons, less conducive to wearing ties.
Pocket or No Pocket?
Pockets were once the exclusive preserve of formal men’s shirts; in recent years,
pockets have madetheir way to casual shirts too. Today, it is a matter of personal
preference.The trend for pockets onshirts for men is still weighted primarily in favour of
formal shirts (for storing pens, notepads and your mobile phone) but as you browse the
Gear Eshop, you will see that we do offer a range ofcasual shirts with small and large
pockets too. Most of the time,it is a case of personal preference more than anything else,
but be sure to choose the right style.
Patterned or Plain?
Gear Eshop offers a range of choices of colours and styles for every occasion. One of
the biggest decisions you will make is whether to choose a garment that is patterned
or plain. Patterned men’sshirts were once the exclusive preserve of the casual
garment; in recent years, some of the top labels have introduced simple pattern designs
to their dress shirts and work shirts, diversifying formal wear. With formal shirts though,
it is best to keep the designsimple – small checked pattern, thin stripes and so on.
The more elaborate the design, the more likely it has a casual function.
Shirts for men have also undergone great changes in the last few decades. Before the
1990s, formalshirts were almost entirely plain and white with a few pastel colour
options.As well as patterned shirts, casual shirts were any other colour except white.
During the 1990s,that all changed. Formal designs of men’s shirts came in black, vibrant
blues and greens,pink, grey, yellow and many others. Now, you need not have your
formal shirt in any colour so long as it is white. Suit designs and colours have changed to
fit with the modern trend. Men who wear coloured work shirts really stand out from the
crowd and when choosing the right tie, just as smart as their forbearers.

Men’s shirts are no longer limited by conventions dictated since the invention of the shirt.
