I need a shirt that fits like the BB extra slim? Anyone?

Suggestions for a large-slim fit? I have a 45 chest measurement (though wear a 44 jacket) and 36 inch waist. The Brooks Brothers slim fit fit well in the waist, but was a tad tight in the chest, though I was able to accommodate it by getting a 36 sleeve length.

Do any (many) vendors offer a slim fit without a substantially slimmer chest as well as the waist? Ideally, I'd simply like a standard 16.5/35 dress shirt with a few inches stripped off the waist. Thoughts on where to find something like this, particularly that I'd be able to try on?

What I've been doing is finding my neck size, and getting it tailored in. the shoulders may be llike 1cm big on me cuz I got a big neck but that's the best way to do it in my opinion. if it fits me, i'd wear it more so i might as well get everything tailored in so i'm happy with the fit. anyone else do this?

Do they make just 14 neck shirt? not 14 1/2... If so where can I find some?

Picked up a Vittorio Marchesi shirt from Daffy's. Really nice slim fit shirt. Strips only line up on one arm though. Still, totally wearable. I presume this is why they're at Daffy's. They're apparently made by hand, though it's definitely not hand stitched. 30 bucks. They have a store in Japan selling them for 250-500.

I forget if it's been said but Abercrombie's muscle fit shirts are extremely thin fit.

It's the thinnest fit I've ever had off the rack next to benjamin bixby and that label doesn't even exist anymore.

I recently purchased my first CT tailored fit to compare with BB extra slim fit. After trying it on and wearing for a day, it seemed identical in fit (although, I haven't measured). The main difference in terms of cut/appearance seems to be the CT tailored fit has darts, which I'm cool with as I don't have any other shirts with darts (i.e., it's sort of a novelty factor for me). btw, the one size difference -- I'm a 32 sleeve in BB, but the CT 33 inch fit fine.

You can order the CT shirts for $39 via ctshirts.com/gordon.

I have a 44.5" chest and a 38" waist. I like how BB slim fit and black fleece fit (BB5 and 16 1/2 respectively. The shirts give me about the same extra room in the chest as in the waist. The problem with ESF shirts is they take in the chest far too much, I've found. I have about an inch of extra room in the chest on a BB5

I asked this in the Modern Tailor thread and didn't get any response, maybe here is a better place for the question. I've seen multiple people recommend against getting darts on MTM "fitted" shirts. Why is that? It would seem like darts help keep the lower back and sides trim and eliminate some baginess there.

maybe they were suggesting you take in the sides instead. That's another way to reduce the waist of a shirt.
