    Seems that Dolce and Gabbana shirts (button down) are not talked about too much on the forum.

    Would like to hear some peoples opinions, my local discount store has a bunch for $39.99.

    I do have a slimmer build, so these shirts might not be the best fit.

    (apologies if my searching abilities are sub-par)

    Thanks

    $40?

    Those are likely fakes or irregulars (tacky regardless). I'd contact a legit D&G retailer to verify whether they wholesale to this 'local discount store'.

    I can do it for you if you like, but don't buy anything until you find out.

    D&G is what you wear to look like Russian Nouveau Riche, which is a crass way of saying they're a bit too "fashion forward" for most of the tastes around here. If you're curious about good quality shirts with a slim fit, however, I would direct you to this thread: The Definitive Guide to Slim Fit Shirts

    Is it from the main line? The fit varies from slim to snug.

    If you have a slim build, they should be a good fit for you.
    If you can get them at $40 and they are real, and they fit and look good, why not?
    I have a couple D&G shirts in basic colors that I picked up on clearance. I like the fit and they are of decent quality (relative to what I paid for them).

    If I could find real ones for that price I'd be snapping them up - D&G is pretty slim fitting in general and are listed in the slim fit shirt thread too.

    That's a little harsh, no? $40 for any shirt is cheap and, whatever D&G's fashion leanings, many designers put out pretty normal-looking shirts.

    That... And most men wouldn't know what you're wearing anyway (I know guys who have to look down to tell you what THEY'RE wearing).

    D&G's patterns aren't too off the wall (neither are most of Versace's)... Not to the point of being unique or an eyesore at least.

    I'd rather spend $40 on Abercrombie than any amount on a rip-off. Doesn't matter what you spend, just know what you're getting.

    40 USD seems to low for a DG shirt...IMHO...

    Dolce Gabanna (not D&G) casual shirts are very slim and often contain 3-5% lycra. Collars are tall but soft and unlined. Pigment is very weak and fading after 2 washes. I would only consider DG if you found a pattern that you absolutely love, otherwise it is a very poorly made garment and not worth owning at any price.

    if they're legit, buy them all and sell them here for a bit of profit on B&S (or ebay) - they'd sell

    While Dolce & Gabbana may not be the greatest shirts, it's probably one of the best values out there for $40

    The fit also depends on the line, I picked up a 'Basic' in plain blue and the arms are short and the body is huge, it fit like a Brooks Bros shirt. I also got a 'Slim Fit' and my fat 160lb ass couldn't fit into it because I don't have wash board chest.
