    My question, not so quick, is about PRL Custom-Fit Dress Shirts. I'm looking for something that isn't too long that I can wear untucked cleanly with jeans, the only time I can stand the look of a dress shirt tucked into jeans is when I'm wearing layers. But I also want the versatility to be able to tuck the shirt in and throw a tie on. The PRL website says that the custom-fit is "Cut closer to the body, with shorter front and back hems", but how much shorter?

    I know the typical solution to this is buy a "sports shirt," the problem I encounter with that is the medium fits me perfectly in everywhere besides the neck(in every brand, not just RL), almost all sport shirts at 15-15 1/2 neck side at medium and I'm a 16. I swim in a large.

    I don't suit up very often, and dress casual the rest of the time. That being said I need as much flexibility with my wardrobe as I can get, you know money and all. It would be very nice to be able to find a coupIe shirts that could fit both bills or jeans and slightly dressed up. I wouldn't mind any brand recommendations to fit my needs either! I live near Jackson Premium Outlets in NJ and have RL, J Crew, Brooks Brothers(even their slim shirts are quite baggy), Banana Republic, Gap, Tommy Hilfiger and a few others at my immediate disposal to make up for lack of funds.

    This might help,

    I'm 5'9, 42" chest, 32" waist.

    Thanks you!
