    What companies make "slim fit" or "athletically tapered" button-up shirts?

    H&M Large slim fit shirts fit me PERFECTLY.

    Express "modern fit" mediums fit me pretty well, too.

    What other companies make slim fit/tapered shirts?

    I've seen some from high end retailers but they're like $78-180 per shirt, and fuck that. Shirts at H&M are like $30-40 each, and one time I got a couple slim fit white shirts there for $4.99, I kid you not.

    Oh yeah, my shoulders are much wider than my waist so I can't wear "regular" fit shirts without them looking goofy. If I tuck them in (at work) they poof out like crazy, and if I don't tuck them in (going out) they look really baggy.

    I've bought two shirts from Guess that are tapered at the back... I will have to check out Zara and H&M, love the way these shirts fit!

    Some of the H&Ms I've seen are female-only. I saw they were opening one up in the mall by where I used to live, and I got all excited, and then I went there and realized it was only girl's clothing. I was like wtf.

    And their website sucks, too, cuz you can't order from it.

    You won't find them for $4.99 anymore, but I still see them on occasion from $20-40 each, depending on the style.

    club monaco...in general they are slim fit, but certain shirts are tagged 'slim fit'

    you might be better off getting a made-to-measure shirt from one of the online tailor sites for 40-60$

    So i have to wear a tie to work. policy..

    I'm wearing ike behars, hugo boss, claiborne etc... shirts that I got from Nordstrom rack, they seem a bit baggy. I'd like a shit more slim, I'm like 150 lbs, 5'10", I'm only 18 so I suppose I could get away with wearing the younger brands (like AE, AF etc..). Question is, do those shirts look decent with a tie or what? They dont seem like they're meant to be worn with one, but I like them a lot, and I love the prices.

    Need advice with dress shirts...

    My local Banana Republic always has a few dress shirts in French cuffs that I liked, but wondered how well they would look when I wear black dress slacks and shoes.

    The ones that pique my interests are:

    ..and a few button cuff ones:

    Too much of a contrast? I want a little color and variety in my dress shirts.

    I like the 2nd and 4th ones the most.

    don't forget you can always get colourful ties. If you choose them carefully they'll probably go well with a number of shirts that you have.

    I would imagine black trousers and shoes are pretty safe. You could probably wear them with anything and look half decent.

    I bought #2 but in button cuff.

    Not paying four times the amount for a French cuff and not even have any cuff links. ~_~

    all of them would work great with black slacks. except maybe the third one. that one is kind of weak.

    black slacks are like blue jeans, you can pretty much wear any colored shirt.

    need a slim/fitted white dress shirt.

    I just bought a white dress shirt, this one to be exact. Well, the shirt cut sucks. It looks like I'm swimming in it, even though it is my size. Can anyone recommend a brand that offers fitted / slim cut dress shirts? Only one I saw at Macy's was that Alfani brand, but the material look way to cheap. Nothing over $70-$80

    thanks in advance
