Difference Between Fitted / Non-fitted Shirts?

What is the difference between a fitted shirt and a non-fitted shirt?

I'm getting some long sleeve button-down shirts and I'm not sure whether to get fitted or non-fitted. I wear them untucked. Plz halp.

Fitted shirts are made to your exact measurements...nonfitteted are generic and picked off a rack. If you have weird measurements I would suggested shelling out extra for fitted.

Well, buying off the rack, I believe fitted means it's tapered in more on the sides, instead of straight. It's probably slimmer somewhere else too. Basically, it's a fit for slimmer people.

fitted. night and day between the way it hangs on my shoulders. plus, my shirts are very tapered, most american designer don't do that. and the ones that do (varvatos off the top of my mind) go for $175-200+/shirt.

occassionally, there are shirt with great material my tailor can't get. so i'll buy off the rack and take it to my neighborhood laundromat where the in-house tailor is above average.

If you're in decent-to-good shape, get fitted if you can. Regular shirts have an extra foot or so of material around my waist and there's just no good way to wear those.

I have a few shirts that would look better on me if they were tailored a bit. Can I just take them to the lady who hymns my pants?

Uhhhh, ldo. You think she only knows how to hem pants? As long as you are reducing size of anything, it's a cinch for any decent tailor/seamstress. It's adding size that can be an issue.

Unless youre overweight, fitted is the correct answer. Looks infinitely better than a non-fitted if wearing untucked (no blousey look). My recommendation is 7 for mankind, and hugo boss (if I can find something on the conservative side). Both at bloomingdales.

How exactly do fitting shirts work? You buy them then they are adjusted to your size?

Higher end places measure you then construct the shirt to your preference. Collar, color, types of cotton, etc. Usually you get a few shirts done at once like 6.

You are thinking of tailored shirts. Fitted shirts are tapered, so that on a normal v-shaped man (wider around the chest, more narrow in the waist) the shirt has more fabric up top and tapers in on the bottom.

You can get tailored shirts in lots of 5 or 10 for cheaper than off the rack nice-quality ones, so I don't know why anyone wouldn't. Plus more choice of collar, pockets, cuffs, fabric, color, patterns, etc.

Your best to go for a tailored **** and get it made in HK*, you'll be very surprised how cheap it actually is.

*No I don't mean go there, just google for a website.
