Shirt Query from GQ Mag # February 07

Evening all

I have a dress shirt enquiry. Whilst my off-the-rack shirts fit me well around the neck and cuffs, too often they are baggy around the sides & waist with excess material. I am currently trying slim-fit and semi-fitted shirts but they are not much better.

Today I spotted an article in GQ Mag # February 07 on off-the-rack fitted dress shirts which look much straighter and slimmer around the torso.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a brand/supplier in Australia that does these tighter "fitted" shirts off-the-rack? A trawl of the internet suggests Euro shirts tend to be a tighter fit. (Or is made-to-measure the only option?)

Cheers team.

I believe MTM is the only option.

it depends on how slim you want it. How disparate is your "drop" from the Chest measurement to your waist measurement? If it's something like 9 or 10 inches, you probably need to go MTM. If you have like a 7 or 8 inch drop, a shirt cut to be slim fit should work decently; european brands, generally tend to be pretty good. I don't know what's available (for cheap) in Australia, but there should be at least a few decent options that you can find in department stores and men's shops, especially during sale times. I'm sure some of our Australian members have good suggestions on brands.
