The Definitive Guide to Slim Fit Shirts - Page 63

post #931 of 2377
$150 to $220 or so depending on fabrics for the Taylor Stitch shirts. Can't wait for it to arrive.

Anyone have any experience with Lands End Custom shirts? I recently tried out their updated slim fit and was disappointed by the generous amount of fabric left in the sleeves.

Ok.. Im about 5 '10 and 136 pounds with long arms.. any ideas of brands that may have slim fitting shirts to my liking ?

Lands End shirts, even the slim fit ones have way too much fabric for me.

Does anyone know where I can find a slim-fit OCBD with no chest pocket , no box pleat in the back and nice collar roll? Just a plain all-white color would be preferable and <$100 if possible. I may have to go MTM or custom, but want to see if they're are any labels that make this kind of shirt. I tried on a RLPL in a different color for fit and it fit nicely, fulfilling the requirements I listed above. Only problem is they're hard to find in white. Any other suggestions?

A somewhat related question: what are the pros and cons of putting darts in a shirt as opposed to having the sides taken in to make it fit slimmer and not have the back fabric puff out over the pants?

Thanks

This has been briely discussed in this thread already, so excuse me for the redundancy, but does anyone have any opinion on Geoffrey Beene's fitted sateen shirts? I own one and it fits decently, only slightly billowing around my waist. However, the quality of the shirt (45% polyester) leaves a lot to be desired, but for now, I am willing to sacrifice quality for value. If anyone has any other suggestions for a very slim, very cheap (say under $30) dress shirt (preferably with a point collar), I would really appreciate it. I heard Van Heusen and Arrow sucks, but I sort of like Geoffery Beene's fitted shirts. Also, how is Alfani RED?

I have a couple Alfani Red shirts and a black wool jacket. All fit nicely for an off the rack shirt. I like the style as well.

I use this for J. Crew's dress shirts. A medium fits perfectly. I am 6'3" so I usually have to tuck it back in when I stand up, but the large is like wearing a trash bag. Tucking it in is a small price to pay for looking good IMO.

I've owned a few and I think they're a decent value. The smallest I could find were mediums and while they had a good taper they were extremely long for me at 5'10" causing a lot of billowing actually. They are very easy care and come out of the dryer with absolutely no wrinkles. Some of the dyes stunk real bad at the first sign of sweat however.

If they had a small I'd try one again. But right now I go with the patterned/striped Express fitted 1mx small instead. I handwash them though which takes like 5 minutes.

I'm a 39" chest 31" waist.

edit: On that note can anyone recommend a casual shirt with my measurements for under $75? A point of reference are the secret-wash j.crew smalls which fit me in the chest but too big in the waist.

hi, which brands would be the best fitting? for about 150-170, mostly for clubbing, going to parties etc.? im about 6'0 and i weight about 113-114, we dont have many high fashion/luxury brands here but i want to buy it through the net.

thanks, Daniel

just got a question I've got darts and a box pleat on some of my shirts from Jantzen. The box pleat goes all the way down the length of the shirt. I want to get some shirts without that. Does the box pleat give the shirt a slimmer fit and silhouette? If i were to go with no pleat, would that compromise fit and shape? I am going for a fitted look

I would think the box pleat could only make it fit looser. Also, a box pleat plus darts looks bad imo. One says I want extra room in the back, the other says hug my back.

As long as they are not too slim to make you look really skinny.
