Pinpoint is a two-over, one-under thread pattern that creates a strong fabric with a fine square-like texture. This weave is medium weight and breathable, so a pinpoint shirt will hang well but still be relatively cool.
Raise your arm and bend it slightly at the elbow (like you're looking at your watch). Using a tape measure, start at the centre of your back, just below your collar. Measure from here to the end of your shoulder and note down the measurement. Next, measure from the peak of your shoulder to your elbow, and finally, measure from your elbow to your wrist (where you want your cuff to sit). Add all three measurements together to calculate your sleeve length.
These are the smart shirts for your everyday work wardrobe, special occasions, and any time you want to look sharp. They feature crisp fabrics and stiff collars (with complimentary brass collar stays), and look fantastic with a tie.
