i've tried bb extra slim fit, ck collection slim fit, john varvatos slim fit, and hugo boss slims

hugo slim fit, hands down my favorite. and i am quite slim myself :/

I was saddened by the fact that the BB extra slim fit shirts are still not that slim... I had high expectations based on postings I read about the fit that I would find a new "go to" brand since the Hugo shirts are overpriced except when they go on sale.

My problem with a lot of the American shirts is that I have a large chest-waist drop, so I've found a lot of shirts look odd unless they have a tapered or darted waist.

Do you know if back hem for the tailored fit runs long? Looking to wear it as somewhat casual, and at times untucked. also would you consider the tailored fits slim? looking for a theory shirt type slim

I think they have average lengths. I haven't ordered the tailored fit yet. They used to have "slim fit" that I think has been replaced by this. The slim fits were slim on me- (6'2 180lb).

<$60 H&M
$60-$100 RL Rugby, Brooks Brothers Extra-Slim Fit
$100-$200 Gitman Vintage, Epaulet
$200+ RLBL, BoO

I agree that you have to include Hugo Boss black lable slim fit to this category. I've tried all of the ones that you've listed (except epaulet) and they are all not as slim as Hugo Boss black label slim fit.
Benetton makes some of their shirts that are really slim. Saw one in their store the other day that had front and back darts.

If it had front darts then I find it highly questionable.

I didn't care for the look myself.

Right... it just screams feminine. You expect to see this on a woman's blouse because women have breasts. On a man's shirt, even if you are a bodybuilder and have a large chest and trim waist, there's no way this is going to look right.

I think some of us are confusing "Slim Fit" with "Skinny Fit". If it's form fitting to the point it's sticking to your body, that would be considered "Skinny" rather than "Slim". I would consider slim is slim cut yet not totally form fitting. I consider Brooks Brothers Extra Slim Fit as the perfect fit for me; perfectly slim yet not form fitting.

H&M has "Buy One, Get One Free" deal on slim fit shirts priced at $24.95 each. Good, classic styles in stripes and gingham available.

Some of the H&M shirts are rather form fitting. I also don't like the tiny collars on a lot of their shirts.

+1.

I don't have an H&M near me, but the last time I went to one of their stores I found the collars to be in stark contrast to both my style and popular fashion which has gone towards a more semi-spread style as of late.

If you are talking about the slim fit dress shirts that are folded up that is a very good deal. I paid $40 for one from the flagship store

For the Lewin Windsor Slim Fit, should you size a half down or is it true to size? thanks

Guys,
Two things - I use a clothier in Thailand - mycustomclothing.com. I just got back two short sleeve, button down shirts. They went a little long on the length - 33 inches. At first, I thought way too long. But it stays in my pants when tucked in. AWESOME fit!. No tent-like pull. Really like it. Other thing - has anyone tried Brooks Brothers Slim fit polo? I want to try one of those and any input is appreciated. Thanks.

I have 2 Brooks Brothers Slim Fit Long Sleeve Polos and they are excellent fit wise.
