The Definitive Guide to Slim Fit Shirts - Page 78

post #1156 of 2377
If this at all helps... here is a picture of a bespoke shirt from Freddy Vandecasteele in Los Angeles. Please note that the button at the cuff is not fastened, hence it looks fairly loose.

The main difference, of couse, is fit, and second, construction. Third is fabric selection... the sky is the limit. I'd suggest making the investment, but that is just my opinion:

Looks like a good fit. Now you just need to find some flat-front pants and you'll be all set.

I just noticed that Brooks Brothers now offers extra slim-fit shirts in basic solid colors. They should have a nice sale after Christmas, probably 3 for $159.

Went to United Colors of Benetton for some slim fit shirts. They fit much better than Express 1MXs and the whole store was either 40 or 50% off retail price. I got 3 shirts for 80 dollars I think. I would post pictures but my camera is hiding somewhere. All 3 are darted in the back.

Yes, I've mentioned them several times in this and other threads. The only problem is that most of their shirts are non-dryer, which is an issue for some people.

I have about 13-14 cuts of fabric from Minnis and Fox for some new pants in January... I'm thinking flat front, so all hope is not lost.

This week, I picked up one shirt from United Colours of Benetton. Rull retail. No sale. It was $99 plus tax. I'm in Toronto. It fits around the waist and doesn't have loose fabric in the lower back either. I noticed it was slightly darted on the inside back of the shirt. The whole shirt goes inwards at the waist. Gives quite a fitted shape. It fits really well, so I hope it doesn't shrink. It's 100% cotton so I'll probably hand wash and hang dry. The label said it was a 15 3/4 and size 38. Fit more like a 15.5 and the shoulders were a little slimmer, but had a tiny bit more room in the chest compared to the Etro slim fit 39. Mine was the "luxury" style. A textured white. Collar was slightly spread too which I like.

Look for "Luxury" on the tag. I think of was regular fit too. I'll have to look around for the tag. There were only two different white shirts in the store. Mostly women's clothes.

Maybe someone can help me with a specific slim fit shirt query: I'm in need of a new white shirt. Usually, I buy my shirts at Zara, but there's one problem: I rarely wear undershirts and all of theirs are too see-through.

Does anyone know of a slim-fitting white shirt, preferably button cuff, point/spread/cutaway collar that's under $150 (preferably under $100) and isn't at all see-through. Also, no patterns would be ideal.

Supposedly they are slim fitting but being a college student I cannot afford to spend that much on just a single shirt.

Has anybody on this thread mentioned the Gap's fitted shirts? Size down one and you have something that, while not super fitted, gives you a pretty decent fit at a fairly unbeatable price.

does anyone have fit pics of the brooks brothers extra slim fit?

I also fit it hard to find slim tees. Urban outfitters has some, but I wish I could fit a brand that just always does it. Some smaller t brands do like johney cupcakes and FFTB.

+1 for H&M fitting. Have you tried their dress shirts?

That's usually what is recommended if you want to try to fit into a shirt: sizing down. However, you will probably be unlikely to button the collar... which is a problem if you are planning on wearing a tie with the shirt.
