What are some of the better options when looking for a slim fit dress shirt?

Asked by Blackberry (31011points) February 8th, 2011

There are different ways to go about obtaining the perfect dress shirt, but I’m inquiring specifically about dress shirts for slim guys. I’m 5’9, 160lbs. I have tried slim fit and athletic shirts from a few designers, but they are still baggy; I don’t like it.

Do you know any specific designers that make dress shirts for small guys like me? Apparently I can get them custom made (bespoke?), but I assume that is expensive, too.

Bespoke shirts are expensive but not excessively so. In London there are several places on Jermyn St I can think of that will make make you a shirt from about £100 which when you compare to some designer labels is pretty damn good.

Ralph Lauren makes oxfords that are specifically “slim fit” that are great for slim men (assuming you like that preppy-ish style).
