Good Shirt Fit

An ill-fitting shirt can be the ultimate deal breaker in terms of style. On the other hand, a well-fitted shirt will do wonders for your appearance. A good fit means that the shirt should fit snugly around your torso with enough room for air to circulate and be able to flatter your body shape.

Guys with broad shoulders and a narrow waist should always opt for tapered cuts that draw attention to the waist and projects an attractive V-shaped silhouette.

If your shirt appears baggy with the sleeves flopping down and drapes lifelessly over your torso, you know that you have gone up one size too many. Contrarily, if the T-shirt makes your belly and arms ooze out of the tee in weird ways, then it looks like you are trying too hard with a small sized tee.

Pocket tees carry a pocket on the left breast, an interesting addition and when in a complementary color can add a dash of vibrancy to any monotone T-shirt.

Slim Fit T-Shirt

Shirt and Pants

Beach pants with matching T-shirt are versatile clothes you can wear at your local pool or on holiday. They are designed for watersports and thus comfortable both wet and dry.

Made from the same or similar material as surf shorts, they dry quickly so you can wear them all day, in and out of the water. Superb for swim training as they provide moderate drag resistance.
