The different sizes of classic shirts
The various stores and ready to wear clothing are filled with shirts of different brands and different models. But not all these shirts have the same size. This is normal because men do not all have the same morphology.
To help everyone find the right shirt size quickly and easily, shirts are sewn according to certain standard sizes. These classic or standard shirt sizes are generally five in number and are identified by codes.
