Need Help - Slimmer fitting dress shirts

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone.


Looking for some guidance here. Hope i am in the correct place.


So i have a hard time finding shirts that fir perfect. These are for work, which is in high end retail. Im not looking to spend $100 on a shirt or really have it tailored due to me being kind of rough on them during the day.


I am 29 5"11 and about 175 lbs.


Normal dress shirts fit me too baggy - way too baggy.


I have some Express shirts in "fitted" and they are close however i feel a bit too snug. Now their Modern Fit is a bit too loose.


On the other hand, the Express "photographer" slim fit pants fit amazing.


So i began to experiment with other brands.

I have never shopped with Charles Tyrwhitt however they seemed decent from my Google search. I have two shirts coming from them in their Slim Cut - should be here anyday. Hoping they fit the bill


I also ordered two shirts from Jos. A. Bank. One in Slim Fit. It was too baggy so i sent it back

Also ordered one in Tailored fit - it has not arrived yet. Once again keeping fingers crossed.


Any recommendations?

If you search, you will find tons of threads about slim fit shirts that may help. In fact, there is one mega-thread that is all about them:

Also in the sub $100 range, Brooks Brothers Extra Slim Fit. Good quality for the price, but patterns/colors can be limited at times..

Thanks for the response!


I was just browsing their site actually. Is the Extra Slim - not really extra slim? Like i said the Express Fitted shirt is a bit too slim. Maybe i will order a slim and extra slim to try.


I do like more Purple and fun shirts but also like to look professional. Any more suggestions?
