When tailoring a dress shirt, consideration for style and comfort is essential. For the sake of function, the cut of this classic style has a longer body to allow for extra movement when tucked. For design, there is a choice of various cuff styles (angled, round, square, or french cuff), collar styles (straight point, semi-spread, cutaway, button down, club, or long-point), and luxury cloth options.
The option for casual is simply a reminder that a button-down shirt is extremely versatile. You can easily create a relaxed look depending on how you style it. When it comes to tailoring a more casual look - your choice of collar, cuff & cloth can drastically affect the overall feel. Linens, looser weaves, patterns, or a more alternative collar or cuff are just a few examples.
Historically, the archetypal design of a Western shirt was purely functional & intended for the industrious lifestyle of a cowboy. The traditional pointed yoke provided extra durability, while the longer back prevented the shirt from getting untucked while on horseback. Today, you can find iterations of Western flare throughout the fashion world - perhaps a draw toward a more rugged time.
