When you meet people, you judge them by their dressing so a smart dressing is a smart way of introduction.
If you are not clear in your mind what to look for while buying clothes such as shirts, pants or other types of apparel like a Suit, Blazer or something else, here are some guides about what to pay special attention to when shopping and trying on your clothes.
Guide for Shirts
Collar – It should not narrow your neck and if you turn your head, your collar should not turn with it.

Buttons – The jacket should not pull across the chest when buttoned

Sleeves – when your arms are at your sides, the sleeves should cover your wrist but go no father
Guide for Coats
Size – it should be too roomy and fit close to your body.
Shoulder – The seam should be at the edge of your shoulder.
Bottoms – Watch out for the bottom flaring out, as this means the coat doesn’t fit right.
Guide for Pants
