What is a St. Croix Contemporary Fit?


A contemporary fit embodies a modern and refreshed interpretation of tailoring, thoughtfully designed to complement the male physique while reflecting prevailing fashion trends. At St. Croix, we embrace the desire for diverse options among our customers, particularly those seeking a more streamlined silhouette. This sought-after style choice is a popular alternative to conventional fits like slim or regular fit, striking an ideal balance between an elegantly tailored appearance and unhindered comfort.

A contemporary fit's distinctive traits are rooted in its overall outline and proportions. It presents a slightly trimmer iteration of our standard St. Croix sizing. Notably, it encompasses a slimmer cut than the regular fit, yet it refrains from the constricting nature of a slim fit. We aim to craft a streamlined, polished look that doesn’t compromise movement or comfort. The contours of a contemporary fit garment harmonize with the body’s natural lines, ensuring ease of motion.

There is minimal shoulder width, body structure, and garment circumference differentiation between Contemporary and Standard Fit. Specifically, the Contemporary Fit is half a size smaller than our standard St. Croix fit while retaining the same sleeve length. This compatibility empowers the customers to opt for either fit based on their personal style preference. Our St. Croix shirts have a sleeker taper through the torso and waist. Slightly elevated armholes deliver a more contoured and athletic appearance, while narrower sleeves contribute to a cleaner aesthetic. Many of our contemporary shirts feature a practical front pocket.

The primary benefit of St. Croix’s contemporary fit is its versatility. It suits a broad spectrum of body types, presenting a polished and contemporary look without compromising comfort. This fit renders a more refined and sophisticated appearance than loser styles, making it suitable for formal and business-casual settings.
