Can anyone recommend brands of shirts who have longer sleeves? In order for a shirt to fit me as slim as I like, the sleeves always come up really short on my monkey like arms. Tom

I always found boss slim fit shirts to have super-long arms. The quality is absolute crap, but i have two of their casual shirts.

This is what I do (I have a 15" neck and 36" sleeve). I'm trying MTM shirts from Lands' End, Individualized Shirts (through a menswear store), Brooks Brothers, and custom from WW Chan. FWIW, the best fitting shirts so far have been Brooks and Lands' End (after 4-5 iterations).

If you want to overpay for the quality you'll receive, you can try the designer route. A lot of continental designers cut their shirts long and slim.

I honestly don't understand what this comment means. If the suggestion that the quality of shirts one gets from Jantzen is no better than you'll get in an RTW shirt from Macy's, I don't think it accurately reflects the clear majority opinion among forum members.

I think he meant, "Jantzen is no more expensive than Macy's" RTW shirts.

Ah, thanks. I thought that might be it, but I wasn't sure.
