    I am in graduate school and interviews are around the corner. I need help finding some dress shirts for a charcoal grey suit. My measurements are:


    Height: 5'5''

    Chest: 46''

    Weist: 36''

    my dress shirts are 17 -32


    Can anyone recommend any brands that will fit well with my "uniquely" shaped body? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You may be best and most easily served (IMO) by going with a quick turnaround MTM program. I recommend Proper Cloth, though there are other good ones available. Measure yourself (use their tutorials) and design the shirt online, they'll have it to you within 2 weeks. If alterations are needed, take pictures, email them, and immediately mail the shirt back; they'll do them for free and have it back to you in another two weeks. After that you've got a fairly perfect template for any dress shirt fabric they offer.

    Yes - Proper Cloth. 2 week turnaround time, like I said, and free first round of alterations. Very reasonable, highly recommend.
