    I need to be purchase this in a physical store and not from a website. Help a brotha out. Places like Express and Bananna Republic have regular fits. I'm too scrawny to pull such fit. HELPZ! :):bowdown::bowdown:

    they have them at Macy's. DKNY and Alfani if u can find it. I found the DKNY one to be really nice (lil bit of that stretch fiber), but they never had my size. it was $30 on sale.

    this is true. the shirts labeled "fitted" at express are quite slim and fit well straight off the rack. not a bad deal either, at least here in the NW, you can buy 3 for $90 (original price is $50 each).

    the "modern fit" labeled shirts aren't slim however, and they have a lot more of these. but look out for the "fitted" shirts, they may be what you're looking for.

    I just got a bunch of BCBG Attitude shirts for 10.00 +25% percent off. Of course, they didn't have any white ones, so I got a BCBG one in white. It's a modern fit, but I am a pretty small guy. I like how they fit. IF you want pics of how it fits, let me know.

    theory is american, and it is not slim.

    zara is a great suggestion, otherwise consider getting a shirt that is 'pretty good' and having it tailored--sometimes that's the best that can be done.

    you want a slim-fitting, high collar, you need to go higher end.

    I personally like Fray and Charvet for slim-fit and high collars.. Most high-end italian shirts will fit like that though (Brioni and Kiton for example).

    Be prepared to drop $400+ per shirt (although Kitons run $800). You can probably get away with $250-300 though.

    Why would you not go bespoke for that price range (or at least higher end MTM), especially if you live in NYC?
