    Where can I find shirts that fit like A/X and club monaco but arent as expensive.
    $70 - $85 bucks a pop really gives me buyers remorse. :wtc:

    Button-down as in dress shirts or short-sleeve?

    My short-sleeve button downs come from BR. Dress shirts are a mix from Kenneth Cole and BR. Express has some really nice fitting ones too...

    yea dress shirts. BR and Express dont have any fitted shirts. Even the ones that are suppose to be fitted are too boxy.

    really? I just bought one last week from Express and it fits me like a glove. And it's pretty hard for me to find shirts that fit.

    I've also had good experiences with Express shirts. Take a look at their stretch MX button downs if you're looking for solid colors. I've been buying a lot of Ben Sherman long-sleeve fitted shirts lately as well, but they tend to be a little more on the expensive side at ~$65-100.

    there arent any brands cheaper that have the "slim fit" that i am able to find... i have some calvin klein button downs that have a nice fit to them.. but those cost more than A/X and CM. From my exp, european brands will have the fit your looking for, but those are usually not in the inexpensive category.

    if youre skinny like me (and I do hit the gym, I'm just a small guy. I have been working out and my pants size is 30/32) you can expect to pay high prices for all your dress clothes.
    Being built like a model means paying prices like one too :(

    if you're looking for great fitting shirts (more casual) that are also good quality, then I would recommend american apparel blanks. I have a few shirts from there and they all fit very well and are SUPER comfortable...

    their website is www.americanapparel.net
