What is a Muscle Fit Shirt?
The term muscle fit shirt refers to how the shirt is cut. Typically they are cut closer to the body than a regular and slim fit shirt. The issue with off the rack shirts is that they are designed for the masses, this poses a problem for muscular guys with a unique body shape. A normal shirt is cut in a rectangle shape which developed the need for creating a muscle fit shirt. They provide extra room in the chest and shoulders, fitted on the arms and taper sharply in at the waist. This type of shirt offers a number of benefits:
Contours to the shape of a muscular body. Showcasing the V taper physique that bodybuilders have worked hard on obtaining.
Contains stretch fabric to allow freedom of movement and maximum comfort.
Fits the waist area so that there is no extra requirement to take your shirt to a tailor.
AtTapered Menswear we have developed our own Muscle Fit Shirt with our signature Tapered Fit. Not only is the Tapered fit cut closer to the body than every other shirt but provides 4x stretch for freedom of movement, dress shirts for guys with muscle.
How Should a Muscle Fit Shirt Fit?
A muscle fit shirt should fit close in the chest and shoulders while tapering down in the waist. Are muscle shirts supposed to be tight? Let's break down each area for how a muscle fit shirt should fit:
Muscle fit shirts should fit comfortably around the chest. It will feel snug but not too tight where the buttons create a gape at the front. If the buttons start to pull the shirt is too tight. Your chest should fill out the shirt in a way that the chest shape is clearly visible under the fabric.
The seam where the shirt sleeve attaches to the body should be close to the top of the shoulder. If the seam is across the top of the arm it is either too big or poorly fit. If the seam is closer to the top of the collar bone it is too tight.
Typically, muscle fit shirts have a high armhole that is cut closer into the armpit. This design allows for the sleeve to follow the shape of the arm without loose fabric sagging around it. Similar to the chest the arms should fill out the sleeves of the shirt without any excess fabric around the biceps.
A muscle fit shirt should taper in from the chest to the waist following the contours of the physique. This creates a clean silhouette with no excess fabric bunching around the waist. A good muscle fit shirt should have two vertical back darts sewn in to allow for a sharper fit around the lower back and waist.
Our Tapered fit is the perfect balance between fitted and tight. A combination of highlighting your physique while providing stretch for flexibility.
