What Is Tapered?
What Is A Tapered Shape?
These are the general terms to how we define tapered. We have applied this exact definition to our ethos. But where did this start? Particularly for fashion. Historical use of the word tapered originated from Tapered Candles due to the shape narrowing at one end.
What Does Tapered Mean In Clothing?
In regards to clothes, we are well aware that the term tapered was particularly coined for the shape of jeans. Wider at the top and narrower at the bottom.
We realised that these weren’t Tapered enough, what we wanted was to create the most tapered shirt we could to achieve a perfect fit. We knew our shirts had to be cut closer to the waist, taper closer down the body, closer than anyone else.
What Does Tapered Sleeve Mean?If you look back to the definition of tapered - It's wider at one end and narrow at the other. If you consider a sleeve, for it to be tapered its going to be wider around the top of the shoulder and armpit, while gradually narrowing towards the cuff of the sleeve so its tighter around the wrist.

Like many of our customers, I worked office jobs and for years faced the frustration of ill-fitting shirts that needed to be tucked in from the sides and back each time I stood up from the desk.
