No, actually the fit is right-on, no pulling or restraining at all. And the sleeves are a long enough for me at 26.5" (I even bought all 3 that I found in M )
Sorry if this is "streetwear"; just helping that other guy out a bit.




edit: different shirt ,same brand .

The guide is not exclusive of non-dress shirts.

Your post is completely acceptable, and thanks for the pic and info!

agreed, every bit helps. edit: and in case anyone didn't know I have read on these boards that many tailors measure your chest, waist, and hips then add 5, 6, 5 respectively to your measurements when creating your custom shirt. Sorry, I forgot where or who mentioned this. Additionally you may add 4, 5, 4 instead to creating an even more fitting shirt. I haven't tested this yet however.

Can anyone give any input on Geoffery Beene fitted or Alfani Fitted. I have heard mixed reviews on their fit.

IMO it doesn't really matter because the quality, the fabric and the style of the collars is so cheesy. Sorry to come right down on it but it wouldn't matter to me how they fit having seen them.

good point, but some suggestions would make you seem like less of a downer.

danderton5 -

the sizing and measurements of "boss hugo boss" black label shirts vary depending upon the cut and style of their shirts - if you can find the black label shirts that are labelled 'made in switzerland' (they pop up from time to time here and there) they are as slim as the former baldessarini shirts were

generally, if you buy one that is labelled "shaped fit" or "slim" you'll get a much closer to the body fit

the "hugo boss selection" line has an even more form fitting fit than the black label ones and the "hugo hugo boss" red label is even more slim fitting but generally is more casual clubby than dress

Those shirts are "fitted" only in comparison to their normal fit, which is to say that the fitted versions are only slightly less suitable for alternate use as a parachute than their non-fitted counterparts.

Yeah, sorry. Suggestions are throughout the thread, though.

Hahah, yes. Jon's (FIHTies) slim fit shirts are very nice. I received one (gratis, full disclosure) and I will post a full review shortly. To sum up, they have a few quirks I don't care for personally, but no glaring quality issues, and to put it in a few words, they fit almost like the H&M slim fit shirts I like very much, but much better made.

This is the one I chose: http://www.fourinhand.com/Product.as...ct=FHES-80G-08

IMO an excellent value for $110.

Hello everyone. this is my first post and I love the site so far. I have a couple shirts that I've been very happy with since I've purchased them. Rag and Bone Thom Browne Band Of Outsiders (great slim fit but a little short for my taste. I'm 6'2") Prada Mainline Paul Smith I was in detroit last week and stopped by a shop that sold custom fit polo shirts and I figured I wouldnt like the fit, but now I see they are very popular and probably fit very well. Oh well.

+1

I just bought a couple from H&M yesterday and the fit is very slim. And at $15 - you can't beat that.

I know common "mall brands" don't get a lot of respect here, but I find Guess button-up shirts to fit very slim through the midsection, especially the ones that are darted in the back.

Never paid retail for them, though.
