Need advice for affordable slim dress shirt

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hi SF. I've been shopping for slim dress shirts 15.5/32 but have not had success so far. Does anyone have suggestions? The J Ferrar super slim fit shirts from JC Penny fit me well but wrinkle too easily. The Express 1MX fitted is a bit too tight. Hugo Boss sharp fit is also good but too pricy (trying to keep it under $50). Kenneth cole slims are a bit big on the arms girth-wise. Gap shirts are good except for the hard-to-button collars (and no variety). I'm thinking about buying the Saks 5th avenue red label, but I'm scared that they will wrinkle much like the J Ferrar.

The best shirts i have come from *gasp* Gap. There slim fit has enough room to move but not so much that they wrinkle easily. They were also very inexpensive at about 25-30 bucks a piece. The gap shirts are also non-iron so thats a big plus.

Yes you can. I have an excellent blue plaid dress shirt from gap with a hidden button down collar so you cant see the buttons. and besides the dressiest shirts don't have a button down collar. I would also look at Uniqlo, American Eagle, and H&M for good quality inexpensive shirts.

From what I've seen you post, you need to stop giving advice.

How well do they resist wrinkles? I plan on hang drying only.

I only keep a couple non-iron shirts for travel emergencies or whatnot and they're not from Uniqlo. I prefer to iron, so I don't know about how well their non-iron shirts resist wrinkling.

JFC you're bumping a thread from less than an hour ago? I'm sorry I responded. It's bad internet forum etiquette to bump your own thread this frequently.

Excuse me, Sir.

Wrinkles often are due in part to fit, and there aren't any pictures to analyze further.

From a price/quality basis and the "slim" and no-iron requirements, Paul Fredrick is worth considering.

may work for you - I found their armholes/biceps fitting to be gigantic (and I have built arms) when ordering the extra slim shirts. very cheap though.
