In addition selection of fabric, customers can select nearly every aspect of a dress shirt as they go through the design process. Different types of pockets are a simple choice, but some people believe that a true dress shirt in the style of those found in Jermyn Street should never have a pocket while others are more pragmatic. The type of buttons that are used indicates a lot about the quality of a dress shirt with plastic buttons used on everyday shirts while real shell buttons such as Rivershell and Troca used on good quality shirts and Mother of Pearl are reserved for the best shirts. Button holes and threads can be in a contrasting colour to add a little flair to a shirt while the choice collars and cuffs is a key element of the style. A collar can vary from a simple tradional point design through to the super wide English spreads that are ‘sharper’. A simple barrel cuff goes with most shirts but adding a simple angular cut can make it stand-out a little, but if you are really looking for a flamboyant style then a Portofino cuff may be the best choice. Modern European shirts tend to not have a placket but modern American business shirts a plaket is the norm. If you are looking for a little more room in the shirt then box or the more subtle side pleats can be used. Finally to make a shirt look bespoke a monogram can be added.
