Are there any other stores that carry similar shirts that are slim fitted that are fairly cheap and good quality? I know Express isn't the greatest quality, which is why I'm asking


Wait for a sale, then Brooks Brothers Extra Slim Fit. Get 3 for whatever they cost on sale. Love them. Oxford cloth, non-iron supima cotton, flannel, etc.

BB Extra Slim is not slim at all, at least by my standards...

Maybe we're talking dress shirts here or something... I am a slim dude and a size small Extra Slim Fit is definitely really slim for me. What are your standards?

I might have to try a BB extra slim. What is a good price for them on sale and do they ever do free shipping? Sucks that they don't do exact measurements on the sport shirts.

I have a 34 size chest so I guess everything fits a bit big on me.

You must be super skinny.

I'm 5'10'' at 150-155 lbs, sz 30-31 waist. A 14.5x33 in BB Extra Slim is darn slim to me.

Edit: sz 34 chest would explain it. My chest measures at exactly 37 and people already think I'm malnourished.

No free shipping as far as I know but there's tons of retail stores you could walk into. And if theres something online you dont see they can order it and have a store ship for free.

For reference I am about 5'9 or 5'10, 155 pounds, wear a 15-15.5 / 32 dress shirt and the size small extra slim fit fit me great. Nice and slim

5'5" 125lbs, size 28 waist. I'm a competitive cyclist, so even at 125, most of the weight is downstairs...

No stores within 250 miles of me so I'd be ordering online. Thanks for the info.
