I need some white dress shirts for work. I would like to get them trim-fit. Any suggestions on good shirts for $80 or less?
Best White Dress Shrts for $80 or Less?
I'm a big fat guy, and as such I usually wear Brooks Traditional fit. I don't see different fits on either of those websites. How do the fits of these shirts compare to BB traditional fit?
Can't tell you. The few BB shirts I've found around here are so expensive (around €120) I haven't even bothered trying them...
But I can tell you Tyrwhitt's slim fit is far from slim. It's actually quite a flattering fit for bigger guys; it works great for me and I'm not small (15" neck, 42" chest, 37" waist and 41" hips if this helps...) . Their slimmest is the "tailored fit" which has darts on it. They also have a "classic" fit which is fuller. Just measure yourself and check out their size charts here...

In this order they become slimmer: Traditional is the fullest; Classic is average and can be worn by average grown men; Luxury is perhaps a bit slimmer; Slim has normal sized shoulders like the classic but the body is less full; X Slim belongs in the boy's dept. or for men with narrow shoulders or freaky bodies.
Though I've never worn it (so I don't know the fit), I did compliment a waiter once before on his shirt.. I guessed Brooks Brothers non-iron, turns out it was a Uniqlo non-iron. I'm sure it couldn't have been more than $100, if even close to that..
