Bradley Allen Dress shirts designed for bodybuilder and the athletic physique

I could talk to you all day about the benefits of dressing up (In fact, I wrote all about it here). Self-image, public image, confidence, show off your muscular physique…etc.

But if you’re a muscular man, you might answer that with “I can’t fit into dress clothes”

I could then respond with all of the ways Bradley Allen Apparel was designed to fit your extreme, athletic proportions (as I do here). This might peak your interest, but you might then go on to think about how hard it is to wear dress clothes. Washing, drying, ironing. Or even worse, dry cleaning. They are uncomfortable, they’re hot, and who knows what to wear with it.

Well, let me give you four reasons why an authentic Bradley Allen is the easiest dress shirt for muscular men to wear, today, tomorrow, and every day.

  1. Cotton-Spandex Blend

A cotton-spandex blend means that it’s made out of part cotton, and part spandex.  We chose this specific blend for several reasons.  

Cotton for its crisp look, durability, and because it’s breathable. Meaning it absorbs sweat from your body and lets air pass through the fabric to cool you down.

And Spandex for two reasons.

First, because of its wicking properties. This means that as the cotton absorbs your sweat, the spandex moves the moisture away from your body and allows the fabric to dry faster. It’s also easy to care for and doesn’t shrink.  
Second, it is essential for your comfort. There is just enough spandex in the shirt to ensure that as your muscles flex, you don’t bust through the elbows or rip through the back.

Both of these elements combine to keep you cool and keep you comfortable.

  1. Pre-shrunk

When we designed our fabric, we realized that anyone who doesn’t dry clean often will want to wash their shirt at home. That is not a problem, we made sure that the fabric was pre-shrunk at the mill before it was sewn so that your shirt stays the same size no matter how many times you wash it.

  1. Wrinkle Resistant

Ironing is a pain. With all of the technology in the world today, the last thing you want to do is spend 25 minutes ironing a shirt. With this in mind, we designed our white and blue fabric to be wrinkle resistant. This means that you can throw your authentic Bradley Allen in the washer, in the dryer, and when you take it out, it’ll be ready to wear.

  1. Versatility

Whether you’re wearing your authentic Bradley Allen to work, out on the town, for that parent-teacher conference, or a black tie event, your Bradley Allen will make you look nails and authoritative. You can wear it casually with jeans, to work with khaki’s or slacks, or dress to impress with a suit. Check out our complete Bradley Allen style guide here.

As you can see, we’ve put a lot of thought into the fabric of our Bradley Allen dress shirts.  There is simply no reason not to have this staple dress shirt. We are confident that you’ll love this shirt. If you don’t, then let us know, and we’ll do the best we can to make sure you’re set up for success.
