Basic Shirt
A shirt is a cloth garment for the upper body. There are various types of shirt for men and women. Basic shirt is one of them. There’s nothing more classic than a woven collared shirt. This dress has a formal collar, a full-length opening at the front from the collar to the hem and sleeves with cuffs. In this article, I will discuss on various parts of basic shirt.

Shirt inspection procedure:

  1. Visually inspect the front of the garment for any defect.
  2. Check that the two sides of the shirt are the same length and evenly meet at the bottom.
  3. Check that all buttons line up with their button holes and are properly placed. (Also, make sure that the number of buttons is correct and that all of them are securely attached to the garment.)
  4. Buttons should be checked for function (button and unbutton to ensure that no button holes are too small).
  5. When checking short-sleeve garments, both arm holes must be checked for size.
  6. Pockets must be checked for shading, tacks, and placement. Crooked or uneven pockets are unacceptable. Pockets of a patterned fabric must line up according to the print. (A pocket set even slightly off can be very apparent when using a patterned fabric.)
  7. Garments must be turned inside out and all seams must be checked.
  8. Three garments of every size must be measured. (Bust, sweep, collar, yoke, cuff, arm hole, natural shoulder, and pockets must all be measured and compared to the specifications of the garment.
