In today’s video, gents, ten easy ways tolook more attractive in a dress shirt.
[Music]So, coming in at number nine and assuming you’re not wearing a necktie, you’re goingto have those top two buttons unbuttoned, make sure to go for a V-neck undershirt, nota crew neck.
You don’t want to show your undershirt, it just never looks good.
Tip number eight to look attractive in a dressshirt, choose the right collar style.
In general, modern dress shirt collar stylesare going to fall into two categories.
We’re going to have point collars.
Point collars are going to have their pointsspread be less than 35 degrees.
This is going to be the vast majority of collarstyles out there.
This works great with a necktie, but if you’renot going to go with a necktie, you want to look at spread collars.
Spread collars are going to have more likea 45, 55-degree collar spread, and they’re going to look much better when you don’twear them with a necktie.
Now, you can wear a necktie with a spreadcollar, it looks good if you choose the right knot style.
What you want to go for is a wider knot that’sgoing to fill up the space right up there next to your neck.
So, coming in at number seven, you want tochoose the right color fabric for your skin tone and your hair color.
So, first up, we’ve got light skin lighthair.
So, if you’re got this complexion, somegreat colors are going to be light blue, green, red.
We’re going with lighter variations of thesecolors.
Notice no bright colors, no super dark colors.
If you’ve got light-colored skin, blonde, or reddish hair, what you want to be careful of is overpowering your natural colors withtoo strong of a color in your dress shirt.
Next up, we’ve got the medium contrast individual.
This is going to be a guy with a little bitof color in the skin, but he’s going to have very dark hair.
Now, when it comes to dress shirts, this guyis pretty lucky he’s going to be able to pull off any color, but he’s going to lookbest when he creates contrast in his outfit.
So, if you’ve got a dark-colored suit, youwant to go for a light-colored dress shirt.
So, when it comes to dress shirts, your bestcolor is going to be white followed by a light blue and maybe even a pink or a lavender, you could pull that off.
And, when it comes to the darker colors, yes, they’re going to be more casual, but you can have some fun here.
Don’t be afraid to bring in a nice strongvivid blue or maybe even a maroon.
Next up, we’ve got the gent who’s gotdark-colored skin, dark-colored hair.
But, what’s great about this complexion, you can pull off very strong colors.
So, of course, white is an option, but lookat this light-colored pink, maybe you want to bring in a royal purple, a vivid blue, or a strong green.

The next tip to look attractive in a dressshirt, strong lines.
We’re talking about a well-starched or ironedcollar.
We’re talking about cuffs that have no wrinkleson them or pressed, don’t have any type of bends in them, and a strong placket.
So, the placket, this is going to be wherethe buttons go through, but this always needs to be pressed, this needs to be ironed.
If you have wrinkles right here in the frontof your shirt, everyone is going to see it.
The same with the collar.
Now, the collar not only do you want to actuallyhave it pressed out, but you want to make sure that the shirt you buy has collar stays.
Basically, they go in there and they ensurethat there is a nice solid straight point.
Let’s talk about cuff fit.
So, in general cuffs should not be so tightto restrict movement and they should never be so loose as that you could actually removethe shirt without unbuttoning.
Now, you want to if you wear a watch, youwant to make sure that the cuff is adjusted to be able to fit your watch comfortably.
And, remember, you can actually just simplymove the button.
So, coming in at number five and this oneis backed by science, know how to roll your shirt sleeves.
Seriously, they did a poll, they asked women, what do you find attractive about a man? Up in the top five consistently is when aman rolls up his shirt sleeves and shows his forearm.
So, this leads to the question, what’s themost attractive way to roll your shirt sleeves? [0:05:00]The answer in my opinion is the master roll.
Here is how to do it.
For this one, you will put the cuff furtherup the sleeve, then fold the excess fabric over it.
This results in a very clean-looking roll, one that will not come undone throughout the day.
And, best of all, when you want to unrollyour shirt sleeves, one quick pull of the cuff is all it takes.
Next up, don’t be afraid to bring in a colorthat really pops, something that you’re confident wearing something that you justfeel this makes you look great.
And, I know this may contradict what I saidearlier, but if you love the look if you feel confident, guys, you can pull it off.
Next, know the rules on tucking in your shirt.
So, most shirts when you look at the bottom, you can tell should it be tucked or should it be untucked.
Shirts that should be worn untucked are oftentimesgoing to have a straight bottom or it’s going to be the particular style of the shirt.
So, a guayabera should not be tucked in.
A polo shirt for the most part, those aremade to be worn untucked.
Now, dress shirts by default should alwaysbe tucked in if they are dress shirts, but it’s the casual button-down, this is whereit gets confusing.
So, if you’ve got a dark-colored shirt andyou’re wondering can I actually wear this untucked? You want to apply the two-inch rule.
So, the two-inch rule goes like this.
A shirt that’s going to be worn untucked, you want to have it go about two inches below the waist line of your trousers.
Coming in at number two, know how to leveragepatterns.
So, let’s start things off with one of theeasiest patterns to pull off and that is oxford.
It’s the shirt I’m wearing right now.
Basically, they use different colors.
I’ve got white and dark blue yarns thatwere used to make these fabric.
From a distance, it looks like a solid.
Another thing to look at is go with the shirtthat has a tight twill weave.
From a distance, it’s going to look likea solid.
Now, let’s talk about stripes, a great patternfor most guys.
It’s going to make you look leaner, goingto make you look taller.
Three stripes that you need to know are firstup Bengal stripes.
So, the Bengal stripe is when we have twocolors – white along with another color and you’re going to see that they’re ofequal width.
So, the white is just as wide as the color.
Next up, we’ve got a candy stripe.
Now, a candy stripe, the stripe of the coloris going to be half the width of the white.
So, you’re going to actually see a lot moredistance between the stripes.
Next up, if you’re looking to go with somethingbold, look for a track stripe.
So, track stripes are where you’ve got actuallythree colors.
You have the white backdrop and then you havealternating colors of a different shade.
And, let’s talk checks.
So, check patterns in general are very casualespecially when they use a larger check pattern that use brighter colors.
Now, one of my favorite check patterns isa Glen check especially a medium to light blue.
This pattern doesn’t really stand out untilyou get up close and I think that you can wear this business casual maybe business, but, yeah, it really is a great one to stand out from the crowd.
All right, guys, so coming in at number oneon my list, the most important thing when it comes to looking great in a dress shirtis fit.
I’ve said this before, if it doesn’t fityou, it’s going to make you look bad.
Guys, nail the fit.
So, what are the key areas on the dress shirtyou got to nail the fit? Guys, start with the collar.
When you button this up, you need to be ableto get two fingers in there at least.
If you can get your whole hand in there, it’sway too big.
Let’s talk about your shoulder points.
If it does not fit you in the shoulder points, do not buy the shirt.
This could not be adjusted.
When it comes to the sleeve length, you wantto make sure to put your hands out.
It should not go up past your wrist bones, and it should not go out past your hands.
You can get this adjusted a bit.
Now, if it’s way too baggy in the sleeves, you want to be careful of that.
That is showing that you’ve got way toolarge of an armhole.
Now, when it comes to the length of the shirt, this is something a lot of manufacturers skimp on.
I like to have at least two to three inchesin length, so that I can tuck it in and it’s going to stay tucked in.
Now, when we talk about the torso.
So, you want to have about two-and-a-halfinches of room on the average size guy.
If you’re a bit bigger, maybe three, three-and-a-halfinches, but if you’re 5’2” 100 lbs, in that case, you’re going to probably wantan inch-and-a-half to maybe even an inch of excess fabric so it’s really proportionbased.
