Good choices for poor college students, heh.

I found a couple of nice shirts at Zara this weekend.

You aren't kidding.. However you can get those shirts at a steal and then take them to your tailor to be made slim...

The only shirts I have found that fit me perfectly are boss. but they are about $150 or so... and not quite wrinkle free.

I prefer a wrinkle free shirt when not wearing a suit.. and off the shelf a Polo classic cotton shirt works well...

However the packaged shirts, I have taken 2 to the tailor and they came out pretty good and slim... I just need them to take in the sleeves a little bit for the perfect fit.

Overall, i think a good tailor can save you quite a bit of $$$$

Yeah I never shop there but last month i got a pretty nice blazer- I was pleasantly surprised by how slim the cut was. Hopefully the shirts are just as narrow. On the negative side, though, I took out the loose stitches in the pockets and a week later the sides of the pockets ripped, so I have to get them stitched. You get what you pay for, I guess.

Van Heusen is awesome: great, great quality for the price. They are much more fitted than the traditional fit, but still, a bit loose and baggy.

Yes, one of the shirts was quite slimfit. They said most items will go on sale starting Dec 26.

You mean great quality for less than $10?? - I'm not sure how to interpret that http://www.amazon.com/Van-Heusen-App...8&node=1104878

Definitely. Small alterations to get a better fit makes a whole lot of difference.

Will post measurements when I get it

Their shirts are terrific. Unlike other budget brands *cough* MW *cough*, they hold up extremely well after multiple washings.

My only nitpick is you don't have sizing flexibility. It would be convenient to able to vary sleeve and neck length as with the other brands.

I was at the store today and they didn't have any Small sizes, so I couldn't try them on.. but was thinking about ordering some online.. I don't know though.

They're pretty expensive and I don't want to waste money on shirts that won't fit.

Anyone have any experience with these shirts, quality and fit wise?

I'm sure Target's fitted shirts have been mentioned at some point in this ginormously long thread. Nice price, and good quality. These shirts are EXTREMELY fitted; express shirts and all others seem huge by comparison. Again, there's the issue of generic SML sizing rather than choosing neck and sleeve sizes independently.

2sweet, as a poor and skinny student, that sounds pretty enticing. Can you tell me the brand so I know what to look for at Target?

Proper Cloth can make modifications from a J. Crew baseline if you like. Tweak the collar, sleeve, length or midsection width. We also just upgraded our system to get even slimmer cuts in the chest and waist. We're now doing chest widths as narrow as 19.5 inches. Midsection widths as narrow as 16 inches. Tighter fits have no rear-pleats.
