not that I know of. A small fits me fairly well, but it's a little too short to be tucked in.

Why do you think they call it the 'Gap?'

i'm just 6' but i have a long torso. i only saw a few tall slim shirts on their website. their shirts just fit really short anyways. v- necks, t-shirts, dress shirts. everything there fits really short.

yes they do, but they use the word "fitted" which i suppose amounts to the same thing, i just get the medium "tall" shirts and i am pleased

are their "fitted" shirts that slim? i would imagine they are still pretty blousy at the waist

Their athletic fit t-shirts are not remotely slim by SF standards. I like them a lot, partially for that reason.

The gap "design editions" white shirts fit very slim imo. I got the safari-esque one with two buttoned chest pockets in a Small - I can just barely tuck it in and I'm 6' tall, though it is a bit short - I do like the fit overall.

If the gap cut all of their button downs like they did their design editions, I would be a very happy person. I used to get cheap button downs from H&M (the ones folded, pinned, an hanging on the wall) but yesterday I tried one on and it was enormous. I think the arms were cut for a gorilla or something. Then I tried the Michael Bastian shirt and the fit was very good. Nice slim torso and shorter and slimmer arms.

Yeah I'm 6'3" and 170lbs

my gf always remarks that my belly is showing with any shirt that is marked slim. The problem is any shirt that is slim enough around the torso also has by nature short sleeves and short length. This doesn't workout too well cause I either have a dress with a large or a belly shirt with a medium

I tried on one of the Slim Fit button up's fairly recently in Small... if I remember right, the shoulders and body fit well, but the sleeves were at least an inch too long. Body was long enough to tuck easily (I'm 5'11&quot;/145lbs).

I have an M and an L in their regular fitted dress shirt, and those are plenty long enough. The L might be too long to not be tucked in, and the sleeves are even slightly too long. I am totally unused to sleeves being too long. I'm 6'2"-ish, 190.

Can't speak to slimness for any given individual, but they work for me. The medium is definitely the closest-fitting shirt I have.
