Yeah, I've been having a bit of a hard time finding anything that suits me. Do you have any recommendations? (besides BoO that is, the only way I'm getting that is if I happen upon it on sale). Pics of good fit would be appreciated.

i'm trying to remember which shirts i know of that are real slim in the arms. i know there have been soem that have been too tight on my biceps but since i obviously didn't get them i am having trouble recalling who made them. probably a moot point anyway though since they would be the same or more than BoO in price.

Ah, regardless of price, any help with brands would be great in case I happen upon something on sale on eBay or something. All I ever hear is BoO, BoO, BoO.

i think balenciaga is really slim in the arm, and so is dior. those are around $450 retail though so even on mega sale they are going to be $200ish. you would be a 37 in those most likely.

jskidder will bash the brand because it's too "gaudy" for him, but Dolce & Gabbana offers a "slim fit" shirt (as opposed to their "tailored fit" and traditional offerings) which is more narrowly-cut than BoO in a comparable size.

dolce is ok for some pieces, and a basic dress shirt would be one of them. i would bash d&g though.

also, you are supposed to remove the extra buttons from the placket before you wear it. not sure if you knew that or not but its worth mentioning.

i also have a serious problem with shirts that have a different pattern inside the cuff that the rest of the shirt. tacky imo, as is that red buttonhole.

at least you cropped those filthy asics out of this shot though.
i'm having a hard time visualizing this

can you please post a pic of yourself wearing one of your shirts to demo the fit?

that's strange. the one i've had in M was almost skin tight around my forearms and small enough in the body that the back felt like it would rip if i made any sudden movements.

^was it old helmut? because that stuff was slim. since theory bought it it has been shit though. and those colovos fucks couldn't design their way out of a paper bag.
