    I am in the market for a new tux shirt for an upcomming formal. I would like it to be slimmer fitting than the average tux shirt. Here are the other requirements:

    -Under $150
    -No ebay/vintage, the thought of wearing someone else's used clothes doesn't sit well with me
    -Available in Boston or through an online store
    -Available within the next week
    -Spread collar preferable, but would wear a wing collar on the right shirt
    -Textured, not pleated front, those look too wrinkled too fast

    It doesn't have to be explicitly a formal shirt. It just has to look right with a tux. If it has stud holes, then I have a bowtie to go with it, if it's button front, no problem, as I'll wear a long black formal tie. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Grab a shirt from Louis and take it to a tailor for darts.

    I found a nice Hugo Boss spread collar in Bloomingdale's last year for $90, I think. Quite slim fitting. Subtle texturing, unpleated stud front.

    Someone who will probably charge me more than $150 for a tux shirt, lol. I'll give Bloomies (and, actually, Hugo Boss in the mall) a try.
