Whether you're talking about business dress shirts, or even industrial workwear shirts, the rule is the same for tall & thin or big & tall people, buy shirts that are long enough to tuck in all the way around, and fitted enough that there isn't a big billow of cloth around your waist when you do it. With our advice and range of styles, you can choose with confidence from Australia's top brands.
