problems with dress shirts
Hey guys i gotta do some work at a office that im doing business with... anyways im laid back when it comes to dressing since i own my business, but now i have to act professional. This is the first time ive needed dress shirts since ive started my cycle. None of my old ones fit and im having a hard time finding off the shelf ones. In order for them to fit my neck, back and arms (circumference)... its to baggy every where else and the arms are to long. Anyone got a different company to shop at or any ideas? I dont want to look like i cant dress myself since my cloths dont fit right lol

had the same problem the other day when getting my wedding cloths...finally found some brand that had "fitted" shirts"...still kinda baggy after i tucked it in, but looked much better...but it still doesnt taper tight to my body like i want...
you learn quick that dress clothes are centered towards fat a$$ white corporate america, and the fat pencil pushers...rediculas...someone should start a clothing line called "Big Legs, Wide Back, Small waist"

go to a tailor and get your measurements and then go to a dept store and buy off the shelf. You're getting big but you're not ronnie coleman yet. they have shirts that will fit you.

Get shirts that say "athletic cut" or "fitted" on them. I get all mine from Geoffery Beane or Perry Ellis.....I have a 17 1/2 inch neck with 32 sleeve...they fit incredibly and you won't have to get them tailored.....Filene's carries the shirts in stock.....

uggg i just got back from "shopping"... no luck yet. Im going to try a few different malls

I feel the pain bro ... I'm 5'9" barely with a 17-1/2 neck and 32" waist. When you buy a dress shirt that fits this size neck it's like buying an XL shirt ... it looks sloppy and could almost double as a dress because its so long and baggy.
I take the shirts to a tailor .. for $7 they taper the sides for a better fit. Just a thought!

oh by the way .. Perry Ellis dress shirts have an unusual taper at the top of the sleeve near the shoulder ... now I have large shoulders anyway but the taper makes the shoulders look freakin hugh! Every time I go into see a client with a PE dress shirt on I always get comments on "how big I am" or "man you've really been working out" Nice ego booster to make a sales rep day!

Ok apparently some people missed this.....buy FITTED dress shirts. They have less material around the waist and are made for people that workout and have a slimer waist. Geoffery Beane makes them and you can get them at FILENES...

Hey man you can also try FITTED dress shirts. They taper at the waist.
06-15-2004, 11:37 AM #24
fitted dress shirts to fit better, but they still have no much material for it to fit like i would like on me...

I was doing a presentation in front of the class the other day and as I reached forward to grab my notes off the podeum I almost pulled a "fat guy in a little coat" and split my shirt up the back...rofl
