And RLPL are far too baggy. Somewhere in between would be really nice.
I was being serious about RLBL. For some reason, they fit really loose on me and tent around the waist so I end up having to re-cut or dart them. I agree that the shoulders/arms are slim enough, however. I don't have enough experience with RLBL to know if there are several different cuts in their shirts and haven't seen any "slim fit" tags on their dress shirts from my limited exposure.
For comparison, I find that the PRL slim fit shirts and Hugo slim fit shirts (yes I know the quality is questionable) are actually a better fit, at least for me. By the way, I noticed PRL has several different lines in their "custom shirts" that aren't labeled any differently. Oddly, their shirts that retail for ~ $140 are much slimmer fitting than the ones that retail for ~ $90 (which are not so slim at all) even though both are labeled "custom."
