Velva Sheen: They are durable, strong, will not shrink in the wash, and have no visible seams. In short, the best of the best. The price is high but they will accompany you for many years!

A.P.C. : they offer simple, screen-printed t-shirts from 65 euros. It comes at a real cost, but the t-shirts are crisp and the screen prints hold up well in the wash.
  1. The shirt: essential piece of the male wardrobe

It is the very basis of the men’s wardrobe. As it is one of the fundamentals, choosing it conscientiously is essential: cut and material are therefore major elements to consider when buying.

Material, cut, collar, cuffs: so many elements to take into account before deciding.

Without going into all the details of a perfect shirt widely listed here, you will have to choose:

A collar proportional to your face (as well as to the lapels of your jacket if you wear one);

Correct seams at the shoulders (which, again, must follow the natural curvature);

A beautiful fall at the level of the back once it is put on.

How to wear a shirt properly?

First, it is necessary to distinguish two main families: formal shirts and so-called “casual” shirts.

.

The former are longer and are generally worn with a costume
in a professional setting. The main fabrics used are poplin, end-to-end or even twill. Aside from its length, the shape of its collar will also give you a reliable indicator: the more rigid and wide it is, the more difficult it will be to wear the shirt casually.

From ready-to-wear to tailoring, the formal shirt is one of man’s historic allies.

Conversely, casual shirts have a much more informal aspect due to their cut (often shorter and straighter), but also to the materials used: oxford, chambray or even flannel.

With them, the field of possibilities is wider: you can wear it closed, open over a T-shirt, tucked into the pants or – more often – outside. In short, you are much more free in your choices with a casual shirt. On the other hand, it will be inappropriate with a costume.
Which brands of shirts should you choose?

I invite you to take a look at:

Hast: very good value for money-style (especially for an entry-level brand), with a lot of choice of fabrics and fits.

Boggi: for less than 100 euros also, you will get a quality shirt in an Italian style with more flared collars

.

SuitSupply: their advantage is to offer three different price ranges (the first two at less than 100 euros), always in an Italian style.

Office Artist: They offer rather formal all-purpose shirts - although they have since launched their first line of casual shirts - cut in fabrics that never disappoint.

Abbie & Rose: also for less than 100 euros, you have a large choice of very well-cut casual shirts. The collars are more generous than most shirts of the kind you will find on the market.

Hartford: The prices are higher, but so are the quality. It is a French brand that offers high-end materials, traditional finishes and original patterns, all in a relaxed style.
Drapeau Noir: beautiful shirts cut from Japanese and Italian materials. Be careful, the material may move a little after the first wash.
  1. A mesh to keep warm
    Stitches refer to all knitted items, as opposed to woven clothing (jackets, jeans, suits …). We’re talking about sweaters and cardigans. Here again, these are pieces that you cannot reasonably ignore, especially in winter.

Unlike fabric, the threads of a knitted fabric follow a sinuous path forming loops.

To know the quality of a sweater or cardigan, you will have to look at its composition, indicated on the label. Choose natural materials – especially wool, which keeps you very warm without making you sweat – over synthetic materials.

Do not panic if polyester or another synthetic material has slipped into your mesh: it can help maintain the piece and facilitate its maintenance. Just make sure that the proportion of synthetic does not exceed 30%.

Also, when you buy a sweater or cardigan, don’t rely on the softness of the piece to control its quality. Indeed, many brands treat their materials with tons of softening products that damage them and will evaporate from the first wash.

Apart from sheep’s wool, there are more noble but also more expensive materials, such as cashmere or alpaca. Their advantage is that they are warmer and softer, but they often last less and are more difficult to maintain.
Fine, soft and thermoregulatory, alpaca fleece offers fibers of choice and very popular.

Small maintenance point: never pass a stitch in the dryer or above 30 ° C in the washing machine, wool program and gentle spin! It must be dried flat and never on a hanger, at the risk of completely deforming the part.

Do not hesitate to watch Le Bon Look # 6 which includes all the advice to choose your knit expertly.
How to effectively integrate a sweater or cardigan into an outfit?

When it comes to the sweater, it is safer to start with a round neck – as with the T-shirt. Its use is easier and less perilous than that of the V-neck, the indentation of which can create inconsistencies of proportions if it is not controlled.

Whether you wear your mesh on a T-shirt, on a shirt or directly on the skin

, make sure it hugs your collarbones without strangling you.

In addition to the sweaters, a good chunky knit cardigan will be very useful for facing winter. It can be worn over a T-shirt or a shirt, and even with a tie for a little more formalism. In the latter case, it must be closed. Please note: as with suit jackets, you never button a cardigan completely!
