Go made to measure or bespoke.

Cheap answer: ModernTailor.com
Mid-range answer: Local MTM (made to measure), CEGO if you're in NYC
High-range answer: Charvet, Lanvin (do they still do bespoke shirts?)
Beyond high-range answer: Kabbaz

The back is  plain.  No pleats or darts.  Sorry it took me so long to post this info.

I would say its worth getting tailored as you can get rid of what I see as excess fabric, but that is personal taste and to others, this may seem to fit.



 



The shoulders and torso seem too loose.

haven't dug through but i'm looking for my perfect dress shirt with the following specifications:

 

-spread collar

-tailored, slim fit (Brooks Brothers extra slim fit is perfect for me)

-lack of chest pocket

-side pleats or no pleats (no back center pleat)

 

i've looked into Charles Tyrwhitt's White Twill Non Iron Tailored Fit Dress Shirt, and found this shirt:

 

http://www.ctshirts.com/White-twill-non-iron-tailored-fit-dress-shirt?q=usgob||RG009WHT|||||||||||||#product_no_anch

 

Which is great except for the fact that it's a twill weave. I get hot easily and will be wearing this in the summer with a suit, so I'm not sure if twill weave will cause me to sweat like a pig.

 

Any recommendations??

Although I've never used Modern Tailor or any of the other such options myself, I have read a bit about them.  It's my understanding that if you send in a shirt that works perfectly on you they will just recreate that shirt's measurements with the material you select.  From there I imagine you can add or subtract features like the ones your mentioned.

Looks a great shirt. Twill won't determine if it's thick. It may be a twill but reasonable in thickness. Best to check it on in store if possible.

Would not recommend trying a shirt maker like the ones suggested recently unless referred by a friend or poster you trust. Trying them on the say of someone who has never tested them is not a good idea.

I was curious if anyone else here has to go an extra sleeve length up for BB ESF.  I'm a 40" chest, 16" neck and 34" waist but I find that the 16x34 ESF's armholes are too high and it pulls the sleeves up my wrist and consequently wear a 35.  Do any of you have this problem with BB or any other brands?

I have actually found inconsistency across BB ESF sleeve lengths. I normally wear a 35, but then I tried on an ESF in store that was a 34 and it was a very good fit. Then I ordered a number online in 34, and they ended up being too short. Probably should've returned them, but ended up wearing them out before really trying them on. So I think it could be a quality control thing. Although you're right, the arm holes are rather high, so could be an issue of your chest being a bit larger than the typical wearer of ESF.

I'm very lucky to have come across this thread, as I'm a big fan of slim fit clothing.  So thanks to imageWIS for making the thread.

 

Just recently I ordered a slim t-shirt from Doublju via Amazon (XL [US Large]), and it fits very well (well, how I'd like it to); I actually have broad shoulders, so it's a tad tight, but I like it like that.

Pre-Darted Duncan Quinn sz 14.5
Hickey sz S after darts

My favorite fit is probably the Gucci and Hickey. Hickey doesn't fit my neck that well though, while Gucci fits my neck better. Both give a incredible \\ / shape though, well the others give a more of a | | shape.

 

I have similar measurements to yours (40' chest, 30' waist).  Gucci does appear to have a nice "v" shape to it, but I looked it up...

 

http://www.gucci.com/us/category/m/men_s_ready_to_wear#t_shirts___polos

 

and I'm not paying $230+ for one t-shirt.  Hell, anything over 40 bucks for a t-shirt is pushing it, as far as I'm concerned.

 

I'll be browsing through here though for cheaper places.  Thanks again for the thread.

Thanks 2eho. That is really useful.

Newbie here. What would you recommend for an athletic fit polo shirt as follows. I need to have some embroidered with company logo. I'm tired of XL or XXL shirts that were designed for people with 46" waists.

- cotton, blend, etc. I'll be outside a lot so a wicking poly isn't bad but I don't like itchy poly.
- 2 or 3 buttons
- I'm a 46XL jacket and 36W. Sleeves should be fairly long, just above elbow. Prefer unbanded as I find banded sleeves to feel a bit constricting.

Thanks.

I've tried a number of brands recommended here, but no luck. I'm 6'3 and 200 lbs and wear a 17' neck but only a 43' chest. I have a couple of Boss black labled dress shirts that fit very well, but want to try something different. Does anyone have any recommendations on a brand I can buy OTR? Or am I out of luck?

Have you tried having a tailor trim the sides?
