Pick Your Perfect Shirt Colour

We are lucky enough to live in a world where everything we do abounds with choices. From when you wake up in the morning and decide whether to go to the gym or to crossfit, to when you come home at night and decide where you want to go to eat, our days are packed with choices. Some researchers have said we can make up to 35,000 choices every day. An overwhelming number when you think about it. Figuring out what to wear should not be one of the more tedious choices and neither should buying new clothes. Picking out a shirt to purchase seems easy enough, most men usually stick with the white and blue theme and vary between the two. What if we told you that based on your skin and hair colour, you could shop smarter? White suits almost everyone because white, not being a colour, highlights all your other colours however between pale blue and midnight blue, there is a lot of variation. Here is how to figure out what colours suit you best.

Pale skin, light hair

If you come under this category, then you want to choose light colours that will not wash you out. Stay away from heavily saturated colours like dark blue because these may make you look paler than you are.

High contrast between hair and skin

This combination means you have hair and skin that are at least three shades apart. This gives you a unique advantage. Being in this very distinct area of colouring means most shirts will look good on you so feel free to pick any colour you wish.

Dark skin, dark hair

Choose darker colours like pinks, reds and dark blues, more saturated hues are also fair game.The easiest way to determine what suits you is to call Herringbone & Sui, and have one of our expert stylists help you figure out what works best. They will come over to your home or office with a set of swatches, designs and images so you can pick exactly what you want. After you get measured, sit back and relax and let us do the heavy lifting. You’ll receive your garment within two weeks and can get ready for the compliments to start flowing in.
