    Does anyone have any suggestions on good quality, SLIM cut dress shirts? Most of the dress shirts in the US are cut for overweight people. As such I usually feel like I am swimming in those shirts. Do you have any suggestions on brands of dress shirts that are cut for slimmer people? I know RL's custom fit shirts are supposed to be good, but even those are a bit baggy.

    Thanks!

    Depending on your size, you will almost always have to still get the shirt taken in a bit to fit your needs. Don't forget, these are mass produced. So if it fits your neck and shoulder there is a decent chance it may still be a bit baggy in the waist. I still would go with RL custom fit and take them in at the sides (and maybe arms). And for true fit also get them darted. I am happy with the extra $20 these set me back.
