    I'm trying to find some dress shirts that don't "billow" - not a tight fit, but a good fit.

    I'm also hoping I can find something for a decent price...

    Any suggestions? Thanks

    EDIT:
    I should probably add that I'm not skinny as slim fit might imply, just not a big guy either....33-34 waist, 15.5-16 neck, 33-34 sleeve...maybe "fitted shirt" is a better phrase

    just make sure the collar is not too big. get a classic cut collar.

    I went by H&M today and those shirts fit perfectly. I'll probably check out a few of the other places later this week.

    I was thinking about buying a few more H&M online, but it looks like the only option is through a proxy. I couldn't even find much of their stuff on eBay...are there any other places/techniques you guys typically recommend?

    Thanks again for the help

    H&M.

    95% of my dress shirts came from there. They fit perfectly (on me) and they're under $40 which is amazing.

    what is your body type? $40 sounds like a good deal. I have somewhat broad shoulders for an asian male :hs:

    Wide shoulders narrow waist.

    Normal dress shirts balloon out at the waist.

    H&M shirts don't, and even if you don't tuck them in they still look awesome and fitted.

    just the type I have been looking for all these years. I guess it wouldnt hurt to get a couple of these inexpensive shirts.
