    So, I'm slim, and can't always find tees that fit me as they should since most tees are cut for um, "˜larger' Americans. I have a Hollister tee that I got as a gift from a friend of mine and I went into A&F yesterday, and while their tees are very slim, they didn't seem as slim as the ones from Hollister.

    Anyone have suggestions?

    I'm looking for slim without being so damn tight that I can't move. My problem stems from having slim arms and being on the slightly shorter side of the height of the average man, since I'm 5'-7" vs. 5'-9".

    As long as Hollister is slimmer, that's what I'm going to get.

    Actually...no. I've never tried on a Zara tee. Are they as slim or slimmer than Hollister?

    You looking for solid or print?

    H&M has a good selection of solid-color tees. Crew neck or V-neck, 100% cotton or stretch cotton, and smooth or ribbed.

    Priced low and slim-fitting.

    Stereotypical New York Dryness

    Lucky I live in DC. I'm sure the original poster has replied similarly at least once in his lengthy posting career.

    Have you tried club monaco? You are in Boca .. head over to Town Center and I am sure you can get a few plain T's for around $12 each (if they are on sale). I had a few and they lasted me a couple of years before needing replaced, but they are still perfectly fine for everyday wearing. You would probably take a small. Otherwise, try Zara at Aventura mall, I think they are a little slimmer and run about $19.

    Don't spend 35$ on a shirt from abercrombie, or 20 on a shirt from Hollister. But a 3 pak from American Apparel.

    It's not the money issue, its the fit (ok, its the money too, I don't want to spend a lot on tees). Hollister has some on sale, I think i'll buy 2 or 3.

    I'll be honest: I had to look the term up. Now with that in mind: What did I do?

    Hollister is slimmer than A&F. I wear a Hollister small and it fits perfectly. A&F tees are slightly bigger. An A&F small is larger than a Hollister small but smaller than a Hollister medium. A&F sizing seems to run right between Hollister sizes so all Abercrombie stuff is just slightly bigger. Thats my experience in working for Hollister for a while now.
