Slim-fitting shirt brands?

    So I am quite frustrated that all polos, dress shirts, and casual shirts seem to be cut like a box. I'm assuming this is because most men are overweight, and clothes seem to be aimed at the largest possible market.

    Any men on here had luck with brands that taper well so you don't have a big puffy bunch of material at the waist?

    That's a cruel question to ask a bunch of sports writers, Dick.

    Polo has slim-fit options. As does Brooks Brothers.

    I thought this was about those shirts that they've been advertising that make you look 20 pounds thinner.

    One thing you can try is going a size down and getting a tall size. I'm 5-foot-11/175, so instead of getting a large in some things, I'll get a medium tall.

    I'm surprised that you were able to find an outfit that could make your penis appear even smaller.

    I've always liked the blousier fit even when I was thinner. It's more traditionally American. As mentioned, Brooks Brothers has slim-fits. Try J.Crew, too. In Landsendspeak, "tailored" means slim-fit.

    I believe Brooks Brothers has three different cuts, with a style between the traditional and slim-fit.

    Dude, I have the same problem. This is an awesome thread. I'm 6-1, 170. I have a bunch of under armour shirts to work out in. I found a couple of 'athletic cut' t-shirts at Target once upon a time that seem to fit properly. As for polos, I found some at JC Penny's once that fit -- I bought mediums, so they fit properly around me but they are kinda short. The positive of that is they make my biceps look big!
