Do you pay tailors a one time fee everytime you go there like a pay as you go kind of thing? Because i heard people look for a tailor and says my tailor is so and so and that sounds like i am paying them to be my tailor forever like a contract.

I've had this done many times with some of my shirts. It costs about $12 to have the body slimmed down and I think another 10 for sleeve shortening/slimming. You generally pay the tailor when picking up the finished product (after the alterations are made).

Do some pushups. Problem solved.

I am practically the same size as you. 5 ft 8 and 147 lbs.

You should try a normal cut small, or a slim fit medium.

Most smalls are neck size around 14.5 which is snug, but buttonable on me. Of course you will not normally be buttoning the top on these.

Medium slim fit in brands like H&M are also very slim. I cannot even put on a small shirt in H&M, but medium is good.

phatty123, I don't mean to be harsh, but isn't this the 3rd or 4th thread you started in the last 2 days on this damn topic? If buying ill-fitting, pedestrian quality BR, J.Crew stuff gives you so much headache, for the your own sake, and ours too, just stay the hell away from them.

Uh yeah, that's because he's a troll. Duh.

armhole width, armpit (seam to seam), shoulder yoke, etc. Thanks
Mine vary a little bit, but for a size S:

Pit-to-pit 18.5-19"
Shoulders (measured straight across) 17-17.5"
Armhole ~9.5"
Sleeve length (top of sleeve to end of cuff) ~24-24.5"
Length (excl. collar) ~29"

I have merged the topic in. NO MORE SLIM FIT SHIRT THREADS. Keep it all here.

Did you read this thread?

I love you, now if somebody can tell me where to find the less common brands in Dallas I would be very gratefull.

To break it down just a bit more - of the above brands everyone has kindly contributed to identifying, which make (or have a line of) small (i.e. not long or pointed), spread collar shirts?

Well, Lewin is having a sale on their shirts and their Roverto (sp?) line is supposed to be trim fitting. The Barbas I've bought are pretty trim, but then I do need to drop about 30 pounds which I gained as a result of 3 epidurals to heal a bad back problem last year. Even though I gained the weight, I would not hesitate to do the epidurals. Nothing else was working and I was in the most pain from my back I'd ever experienced.

Would you say almost all Express Shirts are slim fit?

Hey Tarmac, since we are both around the same measurements, are most of your shirts medium or small? Do you wear more medium shirts for casual b/c most of those shirts are slim fit and you wear your dress shirts in size small for work?

thanks.
