Just wanted to say that at 6'0'' 195 lbs w/ a 44'' chest, 33'' waist and 16.5'' neck... H&M fitted dress shirts = amazing

For polo style shirts, the brand - Red Camel can be found at Belk's dept store. They fit me great. I'm 6'3" with a 44" chest and a 32" waist. I would not wear them in formal setting.. very casual.

To my surprise, I found an option at JCrew.com. My memory/image of J Crew had been lots of baggy, worn-out casual clothes (local store, maybe). I requested measurements before purchasing:
POINTS OF MEASURE 15H34
Center Back Length 31.5
Across Shoulders 18.75
Chest Circumference 45.5
They didn't give me a waist measurement, oddly, but it's about 41 inches. It's a Thomas-Mason-fabric J Crew dress shirt. I have a 41.5" chest, so this is about what I'm looking for.

I also got a medium tailored-fit J Crew dress shirt: 19.5, 47, 44 - yeah, I'd hate to see the classic-fit dimensions; I originally thought these were the classic-fit dimensions!

The first was on clearance and the latter on sale. I am pleased with the quality of the Thomas Mason fabric shirt, but the standard fabric shirt's tailoring leaves something to be desired.

I also ordered two Charles Tyrwhitt dress shirts on the advice of this forum. (One never came.) The measurements of the size 16 I ordered are very similar to the 15H Thomas-Mason-fabric J Crew shirts. The neck is a just a bit big on me at 16". I couldn't bring myself to order the 15H with less than 3 inches of clearance around the chest!

I guess I'll never understand why so many American shirt makers oversize their products nowadays.
Why dont you check out Thomas mason at mytailor or nialma - you have enough measurements to have it made for you. Price is about the same as J Crew...just a thought.

Visit a good tailor; I really don't care how the fit of a RTW shirts is. If the shoulders are okay, my tailor will fix the rest.

The fit of the H&M dress shirts are perfect for me. Are there any other brands with a similar cut, but non-iron? Thanks!

While we're at it, what fits like Thomas Pink slimfit? Bonus points if the shirts have the side panels like TP design.

These are all pretty good. What about Sand or Tiger Sweden? Tiger is great for the tall guys here ... but my fav shirts are still from these Canuks!

If the shoulders and collar are fine, a tailor can fix the rest.
