Non-iron slim fit shirts

What stores offer slim fit shirts in non-iron? So far I have gone to BB and BR without any luck. BB is not quite slim enough (although it isn't too far off) and BR doesnt seem even close for slim fit. What other options are there available? Price range is sub $90. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

If BB extra slim isnt slim enough than you're buying the wrong neck size. Size down until you cant button it than size up 1/2"

bb doesnt make a non-iron extra-slim, just the regular slim. how skinny are you that a slim-fit bb is still loose?

I usually size down on BR non iron slim fit (I get a small instead of a med.) and it fits good. Pretty slim but I guess I can get away with it with 15.5x33 as my usual size (as if I had longer arms the sleeves might be too short.)

You can easily get online MTM at the price, and even some in-person MTM depending on where you go. Or you could just buy shirts you want and pay $10 to have them slimmed. Or have a woman in your life take it in for you.

Non-iron shirts suck because the creases are not sharp.

this. I buy their XS and its the only slim-fitting dress shirt I've ever found that fits pretty much perfect with no need for tailoring anywhere, no billowing whatsoever. at $38 each when they have their good sales, they're an unbeatable value. now if only they didn't have such tacky designs most of the time I would recommend them. they had some decent basic offerings back in spring but the pickings are pretty slim right now.

BB does offer extra slim fit which is the only one that really fit me. I had to size up the sleeve length from a 35 to 36 since the shoulders were in better proportion. At the time of trying them, the only ones offered in extra slim fit were the gingham shirts. I told them to call me if they get more styles in this size and particularly without the box pleat.

I have a 15 neck and a 34 sleeve, so the BR's don't quite fit. Are there any other brands I could try sizing down with?
