Common Work Shirt Questions

How Do You Find the Perfect Work Shirt?

You want a work shirt that fits well, looks good, is easy to care for, and stands up to the rigours of your work.

If you are coming to Personalised and Printed for embroidered work shirts with logos and your company name, you need to start with the right business shirt.

For many people, finding the perfect work shirt can be difficult. Here are a few useful suggestions to consider as you look through at the personalised work shirts in our catalogue.

Do You Want Fitted or Tailored Work Shirts?

Many customers think (incorrectly) that if they choose “tailored” or “fitted” work shirts they will have a more professional look.

What you need to realise is that every person is shaped a bit differently. So, choosing shirts for one or two types of bodies will probably be a costly mistake. When you order work shirts for a team, the best way to do it is to order a few samples in different styles ranging from slim fit, to fitted, to standard fit. Mixing and matching long and short sleeve oxford shirts within your order is also a smart idea.

Fitted Shirts

When you order fitted shirts, they are meant to hug the waist and chest. Ideally, such a long sleeve business shirt does not fit too snugly or the wearer will “spill out” of the shirt! In short, this may not be the best style for every member of your team.  If you want fitted shirts, brands to consider include Russell, Premier, Kustom Kit and Uneek. Each of these brands comes in long, short, and Oxford styles for both women and men.

Slim Fit Shirts

Slim fit shirts are designed for petite, slim women and men. The shirt is meant to fit perfectly and like a second skin. Slim fit shirts come in longer and shorter sleeves and curved hems, which make the shirt look perfect when tucked in. Be careful when ordering slim fit shirts. The best brands for these shirts are typically Uneek, Kustom Kit, and Premier.

Tailored Fit Shirts

Tailored fit shirts are made for average people but are shaped around the sleeves, collar, and shoulders. This is the style that typically works for your entire team. However, you do need to order the correct sizes and not guess. Excellent brands for tailored shirts include Fruit of the Loom, Uneek and Russell.

Standard Fit Shirts

The standard fit shirt is made loose. It does not have darts or a curved hem. It usually comes without collar buttons. However, this shirt comes in a wider range of sizes than the other fits.

Good brands for standard fit shirts include Fruit of the Loom, Uneek, Premier, and Russell. When shopping for customised work shirts, make certain to choose shirts that are the most appropriate for the needs of the work involved and the body shapes and sizes of your team. Then choose embroidery or printing to affix your logo and company name for a professional look.
