How Does Anton Alexander Mens Dress Shirt Sizing Work?

Our shirt sizing is fairly standard to the shirt market. The trendy shirt fit is a more tapered cut around the entire body. We allow custom sizing at no additional cost as well. At checkout, there is a box for additional notes, there you can add your custom sizing options or changes that you would like. 

The Bottom Of The Shirts

The bottom is tapered more on the sides and hangs just low enough to tuck the shirt in or can be left untucked as a style as well. Both fitted and modern fit are the same.

Difference Between Fitted & Modern Fit

The sizing is based on the current trendy and more popular European shirts and they fit more “fitted” regardless. Of course, the modern fit is a bit more relaxed.  

Sleeves: The fitted will have about .75″ less circumference in the arms over the modern fit.

Shoulders: The shoulders are .75″  tighter on the fitted.

Chest:  The Fitted is 1.5″ tighter in the chest compared to the modern fit. 

Waist: The biggest difference is here, the fitted is 2.5″ tighter in the waist over the modern fit. This is because there are darts on the back of the fitted.

Hip:  The Fitted is 1″ tighter in the hip (bottom of the shirt) compared to the modern fit. 

Neck: No difference 

Sleeve Length:  No difference 

Measurement Tips

  • Neck
    Measure a shirt collar that fits you well. Lay collar flat and measure from center of collar button to far end of collar buttonhole. (Alternatively measure around the base of your neck where collar fits comfortably.)
  • Chest
    Lift your arms slightly and measure around your body, crossing over the fullest part of your chest.
  • Sleeve
    With forearm parallel to the chest, measure from the back center of the neck around the elbow to the wrist bone. (Alternatively, measure a well-fitting shirt, fold at shoulder and measure the same as above.)
  • (Optional) Shirt Length: If you would like a custom length of shirt more/less, the height is required.
