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.


Collar Design

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.


Which Colour?

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.


Other Design Elements

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

Youroptions on the Gear Eshop when choosing from amongst our shirts for men need not

fit in any boxas limiting as “casual” or “formal”. We offer a range of designs – both plain

and patternedand options in dark, bring and vibrant or pastel colours. We also have a

number of design concepts that do not neatly fit in the boxes of expectation. We have shirts

with contrasting colours on collars and sleeves (for example white panelling on a blue shirt),

short or long sleeves, plain panels on patterned.
