The shirt pockets

Useful for storage, essential for style. We provide the basics on this key shirt detail. Pockets are where fashion and function meet. Nowadays shirts with a pocket are often considered more casual. Opt for a pocketed shirt if the occasion is slightly more relaxed; a formal affair would more often require a shirt without one. The corners can be rounded or pointed, and may also include a pocket-flap.


Rounded pocket

The rounded pocket is a standard, typically positioned on the left side of the chest.


Utility pocket

Given the name, this type of pocket is all about practicality and versatility. Often pressed and sewn onto the exterior of the shirt, it lends a more casual, relaxed feel.


Pointed pocket

Similar to the rounded pocket in its positioning, this one features a visibly pointed appearance.
