    I agree with Reevolving - just tuck it in! And it's not going to look perfect throughout the day either - unless of course you just stand there and do nothing.

    Judging from the frontal pics, I wouldn't change a thing. If you're very nitpicky - have them take it in *BUT* at a lower point than your natural waist like dieworkwear suggested. Makes a hell of a difference, specially for me since I have a pretty broad back and it curves into my waist rather steeply.

    If you do go to a tailor, just remember to leave slack! That pic#1 is not the truth.

    OR you could just find an RLPL Custom Fit shirt and be done with it!
    Here's mine with just a sleeve adjustment:
    (my chesticles have gotten a smidgen bigger since I got the shirt, hence the slight pull on the top-most button)

    The shirt has very slim sleeves so I made sure it was a little longer than my usual sleeve length to account for movement.


    I'd say just do it! Take it to a tailor. Hell, it's only $18 and you'll have a better understanding of what fits you better afterwards.



    EDIT: reading fail on me :facepalm: just saw you were an intern; disregard the RLPL comment

    Any comments on IanGP's plackets coming up off the shirt?

    Just wash your shirt amigo. It will shrink.

    If you're still not happy, get darts/waist suppression anywhere (seamstress, tailor, laundromat). People usually do this for less than $20.

    ^ This is about as tight as it gets. Slim fit can only be so slim, before it just becomes "too small".

    IanGP's shirt seems a little tight, but I think it's cause of the picture angle/his torso moving.

    I prefer your shirt as it is. That other one is too slim fitting.

    The real question is, Why don't you use bedsheets?
