Can anyone here recommend good priced ocbd shirts for men with big shoulders. I tried giving J.Crew a shot but a Small fits good in the chest and shoulders but to baggy in the waist. An XS fits good in the waist but to tight in the shoulders and chest. Thanks!

I would give Brooks Brothers a try, especially their Traditional Fit.

Have you tried getting the size small tailored? Slimming the waist is pretty easy and only costs about fifteen bucks.

I have actually. But I only feel like its worth tailored by dress up clothes like suits, blazers and dress shirts for example. Casual clothes like ocbd not really. I know it's kind of funny.

Darts on OCBDs seem bad to me, but I don't see why you can't get the sides slimmed a little (if that's your preference). It's $15 and would take 30 minutes out of your day. Seems a lot easier than trying to find a new shirt, etc.

Speaking of tailoring, do you think it's worth tailoring polos? I have a few polos that fit me a bit baggy in the waist. Since they were a bit expensive, I don't want to just give them away.

I don't see why not. Basic alterations are cheap. Taking in the sides is like a $15 job and can make any kind of shirt look ten times better.
