About Men's Long Sleeve Fitted Fabric


 

Tropo

Mid-Weight
High Stretch
63% Polyester
33% Rayon
4% Spandex
Wrinkle Free
Lower Durability

Available only in the Fitted Style pilot shirts, our Tropo fabric offers a clean professional style and remarkable comfort. Not only is this fabric incredibly soft with just the right amount of stretch, but it’s also nearly wrinkle-free. This fabric does not hold a crease and can have surface pilling sooner than our other fabrics. The advantages of the Tropo have made it a very popular fabric for many years.



Tall or Regular?


A Cut Above Uniforms Height MeasurementTall Shirts are for 6'3" and above. The sleeves and body are too long for 6'2" and below.  Other brands skimp on material costs and have shorter lengths than ours.  We regularly receive exchanges for regular lengths from customers who do not follow this advice.

Eyelets or Not?


A Cut Above Uniforms Shirt Eyelets

Wing eyelets are an option on all our shirts and are placed approximately 1” above the left pocket. While not required for those wearing metal wings, it does make it easier to align your wings and does protect the shirt from repeated perforations.

Tailored Torso

We take the shirt apart at the side seam and reduce the total circumference by the selected amount.  This will reduce the shirt's width from just below the armpit  to the bottom of the shirt by the selected amount.   If you pinch off 1/4" on each side, that would equal a 1" reduction as you are pinching off 1/4" x 4.  Customized shirts cannot be returned. 

 

Cirrus

65% Polyester
35% Cotton

The Cirrus is our most popular fabric. Soft and comforting combed cotton is blended with a polyester core to provide easy care without any chemical finishing.

Available in the greatest number of sizes and fits, the Cirrus provides an optimal balance of durability, wrinkle-resistance, and comfort.

Fitted

The Most Slim Pilot Shirt

A Cut Above Uniforms Mens Shirt Fitted

The Fitted style pilot shirt is slimmer throughout the shoulders, arms, chest and belly. Don’t assume that you need the Fitted because you are tired of oversized uniform shirts. Broad shouldered customers commonly find the Fitted to be too narrow. Our Tapered pilot shirt is well thought out and is the top seller. The chart guidance comes from 2500 customers and the size/style they have determined works best for them. They are accurate for more than 90% of our customers. If you find yourself on the border, consider your personal fit preference.

Tapered

The Most Popular.

A Cut Above Uniforms Mens Shirt Tapered

The Tapered style is the most popular for a reason. It offers a little extra fabric in the right places for ease of movement but not so much as to look sloppy or cause uncomfortable bunching. While this style works for many, the Relaxed style serves a good portion of our customers as well.

Relaxed

The Most Generous.

A Cut Above Uniforms Mens Shirt Releaxed

While this style began as the big catch all, customer feedback over the years has allowed us to perfect this style down to the point where it works well and is the style choice for about 20% of our customers. The Relaxed style is still not as generous as some of the huge shirts out on the market. That said, we rarely see returns because it is not big enough. Some customers need this style because of particularly broad shoulders.

Know Your Measurements

Let's get it right and find YOUR BEST FIT! All you need is your typical home tape measure to save the time and hassle of returning an incorrect size.

 

Measurement Guide


A Cut Above Uniforms Height Measurement

Tall 6'3" or above?

Our tall pilot shirts are 2" longer through the body and the short sleeve is 1" longer making them appropriate for 6' 3"+ only. Unlike other brands, we do not skimp on shirt length.


A Cut Above Uniforms Collar Measurement

Neck

Find your circumference, then add 1/2" for comfort ease.


A Cut Above Uniforms Chest Measurement

Chest

Place tape measure around the chest at the nipple line, high up under the arms and over the shoulder blades in the back. The tape measure should be snug, so it does not droop down (but not tight).


A Cut Above Uniforms Inseam Measurement

Pant Waist

This is the typical size of dress pants you purchase.


Pant Inseam

Start with a pair of pants you own that fit you well and lay them flat on the floor. Measure the length from the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg - this is your inseam. Use this measurement to help you choose your inseam length. 

 


A Cut Above Uniforms Sleeves Measurement

Sleeve

Place tape measure at the base of the neck (prominent bone) extending over the shoulder, down the outside of the arm with the arm slightly bent, ending at the wrist joint.


Taking five minutes of your time will help us provide you a better fit. Although we have worked to simplify the process, returning items takes time and inevitably has the potential for frustration. To help ensure your satisfaction from the very beginning, please reference men's fit charts and women's fit charts for our pilot shirts.
