Size

The most important and obvious thing that needs to take care of the size. So if you haven’t been measured, it is better to do so. Most of the good department stores or shirt stores today will provide you with your measurements. This is the first step in finding that perfect men’s casual shirt. Although it may seem like a hassle, understanding your measurements is essential to choosing a shirt that fits, is comfortable, and looks good.

Quality

Never ever compromise on quality. Remember it may be tempting to purchase a cheaper shirt, it will be more expensive in the long run as the cheaper quality fabrics are likely to be less comfortable and less durable. You should always look for something that will add value to the shirt is longevity. So, to that end, look for good quality 100% cotton or silk shirts (keep in mind, though, that these may be more difficult to iron!). Another sign of quality is the stitching, so pay close attention to this detail. The stitching on a casual shirt should be strong but also discreet. Ensure that none of the stitching is fraying.

Color and Style

These may be a baby yet one of the most important step. Blue forever is going to be the safest colour for you to choose. It will go with almost everything in your wardrobe. Also, if you want to inject some personality into your outfit, go with some brighter colours such as bright pink, green or even orange. The safest choice of pattern is none at all. A solid color shirt will be much easier to match with than a patterned shirt. If you do decide to go with a pattern, ensure that it is relatively understated unless you really want to make a statement. Remember, the bolder the pattern, the less likely the shirt is to match with the rest of your wardrobe. As for the style, a tailored fit (or slim fit) shirt should be worn by slimmer men, and a standard fit will suit you better if you are a little larger, masking the stomach area slightly.
