    Hi SF. I've been shopping for slim dress shirts 15.5/32 but have not had success so far. Does anyone have suggestions? The J Ferrar super slim fit shirts from JC Penny fit me well but wrinkle too easily. The Express 1MX fitted is a bit too tight. Hugo Boss sharp fit is also good but too pricy (trying to keep it under $50). Kenneth cole slims are a bit big on the arms girth-wise. Gap shirts are good except for the hard-to-button collars (and no variety). I'm thinking about buying the Saks 5th avenue red label, but I'm scared that they will wrinkle much like the J Ferrar.

    The best shirts i have come from *gasp* Gap. There slim fit has enough room to move but not so much that they wrinkle easily. They were also very inexpensive at about 25-30 bucks a piece. The gap shirts are also non-iron so thats a big plus.

    Yes you can. I have an excellent blue plaid dress shirt from gap with a hidden button down collar so you cant see the buttons. and besides the dressiest shirts don't have a button down collar. I would also look at Uniqlo, American Eagle, and H&M for good quality inexpensive shirts.

    From what I've seen you post, you need to stop giving advice.

    How well do they resist wrinkles? I plan on hang drying only.

    I only keep a couple non-iron shirts for travel emergencies or whatnot and they're not from Uniqlo. I prefer to iron, so I don't know about how well their non-iron shirts resist wrinkling.

    JFC you're bumping a thread from less than an hour ago? I'm sorry I responded. It's bad internet forum etiquette to bump your own thread this frequently.

    may work for you - I found their armholes/biceps fitting to be gigantic (and I have built arms) when ordering the extra slim shirts. very cheap though.
