I need help finding nice slim fitting dress shirts.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So I just bought a nicely cut Boss suit and now I need some dress shirts. So far, the only things I've found that fit well are Armani (which are about 250 a shirt) and Brooks Brothers slim fit. I was wondering if someone could recommend anything else. I've been to Nordstrom and Sak's. I think I'm going to go to Jos A. Banks tomorrow. Thanks.

i woud second the suggestion of tsukasa in the other thread and advise looking into custom shirts if you are looking for something to wear with a suit. he is pretty much right on the $100/shirt estimation, as most quality shirts go for between $100-150 depending on the fabric you choose. but there is a charge for cutting a pattern shirt that you need to account for. typically the fitting and patern shirt will run about $200, and each shirt from there on would be around $100 (obviously some will be less and the finer shirts from top tailors can be much more $$). it is not very cost effective if you just want a shirt or 2, but if you are wearing dress shirts for work every day and will be buying a lot it will end up being far cheaper. and every time you order more they can just tweak and use the same pattern so you would never pay that fee again. so basically if you just get 1 shirt it would be about $300 for the pattern making and the shirt, but if you buy 10 shirts it would only be $1200ish making the cost of each shirt quite reasonable. burberry actually offers a pretty good custom shirt service if you live near a burberry boutique.

JSkid, what's your take on Brooks Brothers. Do you think it's an old man brand? I would be wearing a button up everyday. Do you?

lol no. i haven't worn a button up in a dressed up fashion (tucked and with dress pants) since i went to a wedding last summer. the only button ups i do are band of outsiders and i wear them untucked with jeans. i work in marketing so even client meetings and job interviews in my industry are super casual.

as far as brooks brothers, i think it is good for business attire and definitely not an old man brand. just be wary of the different fits, as they have everything from slim to very boxy. the right stuff from bb can be very modern and slim, but they definitely do offer a good amount of "old man" dress clothes as well. and i think they offer custom shirting as well. if you are going to be wearing a button down daily for work custom is truly the best way to go and will be well worth it since you will likely be going through quite a few shirts over the course of a year or so.

Slimmest off the rack shirts I have ever found are a few Armani. Armani is the one brand I have consistently found to run on the slimmer side, with both suits and shirts. That said, I 100% agree with above statements of custom made shirts. The initial fitting will be somewhat pricey, but after that, the price will be significantly less, and the fit will be better then anything you can buy off the rack, slim or not. I would at the very least get one or two nice custom shirts made, and if you don't want to spend that much, just get a few other nice off the rack ones for times when looking your very best isn't that important.

i was recently at a somewhat formal event last month and i met 2 guys wearing burberry made to measure shirts that fit perfectly. if you have a burberry near you, i'd check it out. i think that they only do mtm shirts once in a while though, and i have no idea how much they go for.

I haven't had a Burberry made for me in a while, but if I remember correctly, each store has a schedule of when a tailor is going to be store to take measurements, etc. I believe you simply make an appointment for that day, come in, get measured, select the pattern out of the book, and come back some time later to pick all your stuff up. A lot of higher end stores (if anyone knows of the heavenly place called Louis Boston), as well as smaller boutiques, can also provide this service for you. I believe Neiman Marcus and Saks in some locations also make shirts and suits to order, although I'm not sure how well they come out. If you're ever up in the MA area, just go to Louis Boston, and you'll never need to go anywhere else.

Try Tailorcut.com - Tailored Custom Made Shirts . They sell high quality mtm shirts round $100. I own several shirtsoch their shirts, and couldn't be happier.
