I'm in the market for dress shirts. Can anyone suggest an RTW brand that offers high armholes and a slender arm? I'm not looking for a slim fit shirt per se, I just want to try to eliminate the bunching in the armpit and upper sleeve that a lot of RTW shirts exhibit. I looked at the def. guide to slim fit shirts and did not find any mention except for LE which proved to be a false alarm.

Thanks for your help.

Um, that would be absolutly zero RTW brands. I have to have every RTW shirt i buy taken in through the sides and sleeves. Good luck. As mentioned some of the more fashion forward labels will probably be as close as you can get.

My budget is $75-$100/shirt. I know that mtm would be an obvious route but I wanted something easily accessible with minimal lead time.

Normally I have to get my RTW shirts taken in as well, but recently I bought a Corneliani shirt was not at all tentlike. At full retail it's out of your price range, but I found my shirt at Saks Off Fifth for about $40. Not sure if all their shirts are that way though.

I second the Corneliani. Others that I've found are Z Zegna, Hugo Boss Red line.

I think you'll eventually find what you need on the stickied "Slim-fit shirt" thread at the top of the page.

even thought the quality is not high - Zara has nicely cut dress shirts that appear to be well made
