    If the shoulders and collar are fine, a tailor can fix the rest.

    How about armholes that are too high/low? I am not a clothing expert, but that sounds difficult to do.

    I tried to look through alot of the pages before I posted on this thread. I have recently gotten a few slim fit shirts from Hyden Yoo, and have been really impressed. Darts on the back, trim it down a little and give it a wonderful shape. For a tall thin guy like me (6'4, 15.5/35) it fits the bill perfectly. Ben Sherman Slim fit also works well.

    New to SF, but for those on a budget, try JCrew tailored fit dress shirts. 100% cotton and decent quality. Not a great selection of colors and patterns though. Also like the fit of Ike Behar shirts, though I don't think they are marketed as "slim fit."

    United Colors of Benetton shirts are extremely slim and Sisley are even slimmer. At the outlets you can get these dress shirts for around $25 - $35. The shirts seem to be a step up from H&M, mine are holding up nicely.

    My top favorite slimfit brand is "7Diamond". It fits extra nicely.

    Charles Tyrwhitt shirts are a good choice for whoever has the 18 inch shoulders. I have 18 inch shoulders, 16.5" neck and 39.5" chest 34" waist. It fits me a little loose in the waist, but I can live with it. You can get it altered, if you want a tighter fit. You can check the slim fit measurements here. If you are using this as a conservative shirt for work, it shouldn't be skin tight. You will need to be able to move around in the shirt and it needs to drape properly. http://www.ctshirts.co.uk/content.as...ts%20for%20Men

    I am not sure if Raoul is available on this side of the world just yet, but their shirts are of an amazing quality (almost Zegna like) without breaking the bank. It's a company from Singapore, but their quality and presentation could easily fool someone into thinking they're European. I have their shirts from 2 years ago, and despite daily wear with frequent dry cleaning (or professional laundry), they still look superb.

    My contribution:

    Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece shirt - allegedly slim. Fits better than their standard tent style shirts, but is still not that slim. Has a nice cutaway collar though.

    Nordstrom tailored fit shirt - actually a pretty decent fit, but the collar is awful.

    Thomas Pink Slim Fit - fits pretty well, just not worth $175 or whatever they charge for full price.

    How are the new Extra Slim-Fit shirts from Brooks Brothers?
