We understand that in addition to a distinguished taste in fashion, our patrons will have exacting preferences as to the fit of their shirts. Hawes & Curtis offers a range of styles to fit the contours of different body shapes while also accounting for personal taste in how you wear your shirt. To assist you in your choice, we have proudly launched our new style guide. With our variety of fits and our detailed guide, you can find shirts that will fit you as well as any tailored garment.

For men’s shirts we offer four distinct styles for our formal shirts and three for our Curtis shirts. Our Classic Fit shirts are designed with a relaxed, traditional fit. To ensure maximum comfort, they are generously cut across the waist, creating a straight silhouette. Our Tailored fit (available in our formal wear line) combines a sharp style with a relaxed fit. A slight tapering across the waist creates a shirt that has a spacious feel but also gives definition to the body.

We also offer styles that are in line with the contemporary trend toward men’s slim shirts. Our Slim Fit is gently tapered across the waist and chest, allowing for a shirt that displays form while allowing for a comfortable wear. Our most recent style is the Extra Slim Fit which is closely cut to the body for a streamlined silhouette.

We offer a similar range of four styles for women’s shirts. Our Classic Fit is lightly tapered at the waist for a fit that is both flattering and comfortable. For women who prefer a slightly looser shirt we offer a Relaxed Fit with more room in the back and waist.

For women who prefer to have shirts more fitted to the body, we offer two additional lines. Our Semi-Fitted shirts are closely cut at the bust and expand slightly at the waist. Our Fitted shirts are darted at the waist and the bust, providing for a shirt that tastefully displays a streamlined silhouette.

Our style guide provides a convenient table of measurements for the chest, waist, back length and sleeve length for each men's size. For women our guide provides similar measurements for bust, waist, back length and, where applicable, sleeve length.

We invite you to browse our guide to inspire your choices for the next additions to your wardrobe.
