ive been experimenting with different slim fit brands, ive tried so far: express h&m alfani 'Fitted' CK 'Slim Fit' CK Jeans brand DKNY(slim fit) my build is 6'0, 170. have nice sized chest, abs but have skinny arms. here's a quick summary of how each fits me: Express: the only one i tried is 'modern fit'. im not sure if these are slim fit shirts or not(doubt it). arms and chest are OK but they're baggy from the lower back. you can try tucking them in but they'll just come back out which is annoying, not to mention they get wrinkled really fast. my friend told me to get the 'fitted' ones. ill try those out next time H&M: wow i didnt come accross these until today but they fit me perfect, medium size to be exact. They're also cheapest of the bunch at 24.99 MSRP. even cheaper when they go on sale. my only beef with these is they're very very thin shirts, almost paper. i'd be afraid to throw these things in the washing machine so ill just dry clean them. as far as the fit goes man they're perfect, everything from the arms, chest and lower abs. all areas are very close to the skin without it being too tight CK 'Slim Fit': These fit like tents, don't bother. Why they're called 'slim fit' is beyond me. Alfani 'Fitted'(macy's brand) these fit suprisingly well. not quite as slim as the h&m shirts but not too far off of it. good prices on these also. my only beef with these is they're ussally limited to one color in design and i'm not too fond of the materials....almost feels like its made out of window curtains. but if you happen to come accross a design you like be sure to try it on. CK Jeans brand: These shits arent actually labeled 'slim fit' but they fit me like one. the Small size fits me perfect. they can be found at macy's with the rest of the CK shirts and Jeans. the label will say "Calvin Klein Jeans' on the shirt with a small patch near the lower buttons also. as far as fit goes it somwhere in between the h&m and alfani. quality-wise the shirt feels like a more durrable h&m shirt. i wore this the other day to the bank and had a woman mumble something to me on the way out. as i asked her to repeat herself she said, "nothing, you just looking really good". DKNY(slim fit): these fit me OK, but not as good as the others. they do have excellent design and the quality is probably the best of the ones i mentioned.
