Relaxed Clothing cut with comfort in mind. Shirts, tshirts and jackets are designed to be a looser fit than a classic or regular fit. In the case of pants or jeans, they provide a roomy fit round the seat and thigh without being baggy. They might also have a slightly wider leg opening and sit just below natural waist. Generally speaking, if you choose a relaxed fit, you should select a size smaller than you would in a classic fit.
Classic The classic fit, which stems from traditional British tailoring, is a timeless cut that combines comfort with a more tailored look. Shirts and tshirts fit snugly around the shoulders and chest, but should not be tight. In jackets and blazers, square shoulders combine with a fitted chest to provide a sleek line. Armholes are cut slightly higher, providing an elegant look without and restriction of the sleeve. Pants or jeans may sit close to the natural wasitline and should be a comfortable fit through the rise and thigh. A classic fit should be true to size.
Modern Moving away from the traditional roomier cut of the classic fit, the modern fit is noticably more tailored.
Archetypal of the 21st Century, the Modern fit redefines the suit. The coat is shorter in length with a shoulder line that falls between the classic and contemporary fit. A tighter, higher cut armhole creates a narrow sleeve. The trouser follows this sleek silhouette, the lower rise and tight cut thigh tapers into a narrow hem completing the modern look.
Contemporary Cotemporary fit is a fit which lies in between Classic and Slim fit. Its comfortable yet not loose like a classic fit and has ease for body movements unlike a slim fit…
Inspired by 1950’s Americana, the Contemporary fit is slightly less formal in appearance. Shoulders and waist follow the natural line of the body while the chest is fuller and more relaxed. The Contemporary fit is perfect for the gentleman who may not feel completely at ease in classic tailoring.
Slim Slim-fit shirts or slim-fit dress shirts usually have no more than two extra inches of fabric on each side of the waist. The shirt looks really sharp on a man when he is standing up, and the gape will open a little bit when he is sitting down. On the chest, the fabric will not bunch up underneath a jacket or a suit and it is standard to have the yoke spill over a bit onto the deltoid area. The shirt overall feels more relax and comfortable than causal fabric shirt.
