    Hello everyone.

    Looking for some guidance here. Hope i am in the correct place.

    So i have a hard time finding shirts that fir perfect. These are for work, which is in high end retail. Im not looking to spend $100 on a shirt or really have it tailored due to me being kind of rough on them during the day.

    I am 29 5"11 and about 175 lbs.

    Normal dress shirts fit me too baggy - way too baggy.

    I have some Express shirts in "fitted" and they are close however i feel a bit too snug. Now their Modern Fit is a bit too loose.

    On the other hand, the Express "photographer" slim fit pants fit amazing.

    So i began to experiment with other brands.
    I have never shopped with Charles Tyrwhitt however they seemed decent from my Google search. I have two shirts coming from them in their Slim Cut - should be here anyday. Hoping they fit the bill

    I also ordered two shirts from Jos. A. Bank. One in Slim Fit. It was too baggy so i sent it back
    Also ordered one in Tailored fit - it has not arrived yet. Once again keeping fingers crossed.

    Any recommendations?

    Also in the sub $100 range, Brooks Brothers Extra Slim Fit. Good quality for the price, but patterns/colors can be limited at times..

    Thanks for the response!

    I was just browsing their site actually. Is the Extra Slim - not really extra slim? Like i said the Express Fitted shirt is a bit too slim. Maybe i will order a slim and extra slim to try.

    I do like more Purple and fun shirts but also like to look professional. Any more suggestions?
