Slimmest fitting OTR dress shirts?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

I have fairly broad shoulders and chest but a narrow waist. I was the shirt to fit like a glove around my chest, shoulders and arms and then sit nicely around my waist. Any opinions on brands you've seen that fit like this?

Hello everyone,

 

I am new to the forums, i tried and searched a lot to get perfect fitting slim shirt but couldn't find any of one. I am little thin and taller. The problem i face mostly is short in length or short in sleeve. Any suggestions or idea which brand would give me perfect fitting in slim shirts

It's difficult to give advice without more information, like your precise chest and collar measurements.

From my experience the OTR shirts which tailor in the most (i.e have the largest difference between the chest measurement and the waist measurement) are the TM Lewin Slim Fits. If you want the slimmest shirts (i.e. the shirts which have the smallest chest size for a given neck size) then Hugo Boss Extra Slim Fit is the slimmest I have found.

Sorry about that I just measured them myself so I guess they're rough but I got 15inch neck and 39inch chest that seem about right? For pants I usually wear with 30/32 waist.
Thanks for the info btw! What's the average prince points for TM Lewin and Hugo Boss shirts?

I'm a 16.5-35 with a 42 chest and 34 waist making it near impossible to get an OTR shirt that fits, period.

that's pretty much standard otr size 16.5 shirts measurements you got there. I am 16 with 42 chest and 34 waist, neck fits and chest is off or chest fits neck is too loose or sleeves too long.

TM Lewin shirts tend to be around $50. Hugo Boss shirts are around $150 each. With TM Lewin, however, there are multi-buy deals and you can get 4 for $40. TM Lewin also do regular voucher code deals.

The slimmest fit I ever bought was a Hugo boss extra slim fit (and I regret it -- it's too slim for me). Second to that, TM Lewin's John Francomb shirts are your best bet (that I know of, at least).

If you go here they will give you the measurements of different brands

And btw, Bloomingsale's on 59th is a top store.

 

Don't confuse websites that have to reach a much wider clientelle, or outlets  or satellite stores in poorer areas with the real thing whether it's Bloomies, BB, Saks, NM etc

Calvin Klein extra slim fit (regular slim fit not slim enough) and Express slim fit (1MX?) are the slimmest shirts I have found OTR. The CKs are decent quality. Out of necessity, I have learned how to take my shirts in, it's one of the easier sewing projects.

DKNY slim fit is much slimmer than the Express extra slim fit (1mx is a shirting line, not a fit). However, one must be careful to avoid the shrunken collar on many of their patterned offerings. It is wholly inappropriate with a tie.

Their patterns are beautiful, though. I'm about to use the word rakish unironically, so brace yourself. The DKNY shirts can look positively rakish on a thin gentleman. 

 

Anyway, some of their shirts have normal-sized collars, and the fit's just perfect on me.

 

NOTE: I am not that gentleman. I doubt anything I wear could be described as "rakish."

John Varvatos' Star USA shirts are extra trim fit.
