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?
Slimmest fitting OTR dress shirts?
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
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?

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
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."
