Slimfit fitted dress shirts

Hi All,

I'm looking for office wear slim fit dress shirt. I have a long torso and slim build so a lot of times the normal dress shirts are too boxy, the back hangs out too much/too long, the shoulders are too tight or too loose or the arms are too long or too short.

Thus I have a hard time finding dress shirts that I can wear casually without tucking in. Guess/Marciano dress shirts in small works great. A/X slim fit is good too however if I gain any extra weight it will be too tight =(.

Does anyone know any other brands I can try that has slim fit dress shirts that is for good value? aka, I can wear to work don't care about getting it stained and throw it in the hot wash/dryer without worrying it will warp or shrink since it's only <$20...

Do Moores, Mark's warehouse sell slim fit these days?

Thanks in advance!

H&M or Zara?
Both got slim fit shirts.

I like the fit of the H&M "slim fit" line, if I remember correctly its in the $39.99 range?

Not a fan of Zara clothing but H&M does have decent priced slim fit shirts.

The Bay

Their dress shirts are always on sale, and I typically buy slim fit, wrinkle free shirts from them all the time...

Check periodically, because you'll always find something at great prices..

i never pay more than $30 bucks a shirt...and last time i got some really nice kenneth cole reaction wrinkle free slim fit dress shirts...

I think Banana Republic has mostly slim fit stuff.

If you're ever in the US, Express also seems to have a lot of slim fit shirts as well.

have you considered alterations? I know you can get the back taken in... I know some ppl who have shirts altered instead of trying to find shirst that fit them well. Its not much either, maybe $5-10?

Yes i've considered it, but haven't tried before. I found a bunch of $20 slim fit shirts from H&M. Will check out the other recommendations when I need more

Thanks everyone
