If you are looking for a gift for your brother, son, father, partner or husband a new shirt could be the perfect option. Most men wear shirts, even if it is every now and again. Plus, as you can see here there are many different styles available. So, it is relatively easy to find one that the man you are buying for will enjoy wearing. To help you to make the right selection, I have put together a few simple shopping tips.
Consider shopping online
Shopping online is a great way to get more choice and shop around for the best deals. Just be sure not to buy the shirt too far in advance. That way should the person you are buying it for want to exchange it for a different size or style, they will have enough time available to do so.
Be sure to shop for their tastes rather than yours
When shopping for the men in your life it is wise to resist the temptation to try to change the way they dress. It is far better to buy them something that they will like. They are far more likely to enjoy receiving your present and actually wear it.
A particularly good approach is to buy the brand you know he usually wears.
These should fit in best with the style of clothes that the person you are buying for already owns and wears.
Getting the fit right
When you are buying for someone who lives with you working out which size to buy is relatively easy. You just need to take a look at the label of a shirt they already own and check the sizing. If you are planning to buy from abroad, read this size guide before placing your order. It is well written and easy to understand.
Pay particular attention to the cut. If the man you are buying for works out a lot you will need to make sure that there is enough room in the sleeve for it to fit around his biceps. Whereas for a man with a big belly, it is the length that matters more. For them, an extra long cut is usually the best option.
Choose the right style
You need to think about when and how the shirt is likely to be worn.
This will ensure that you buy the right type and cut. Try to find something that will fit in with the style of clothing the person you are buying for normally wears.
Look for shirts that are well made. Features like double seams ensure the shirt looks good regardless of how often it is washed. It will also help the shirt to hang properly.
