    I have been shopping around for some muscle fit shirts now that I actually have something to show. I ordered some from EXPRESS today but I was wondering if you guys had any other suggestions. Armani Exchange and Nordstrom have some nice T's but I don't feel like paying $40-$50 for one shirt.

    Get some Underarmour compression T's and tanks. They're still $40-50, but they're WAY more comfortable than Armani, which is just Fruit Of The Loom with a different name tag.

    Looking for something to wear out or casual, not to work out in.

    the BDG v-necks from Urban Outfitters fit really well on muscular guys, I have a ton of them and I think they're usually 2 for 24

    Good luck. I've never found decent shirts since I got bigger. If I find something that fits my huge shoulders then it is always too baggy around the waist. It looks a bit stange sometimes.

    The few "bodybuilder fit" shirts that are out there really look horrible. I like plain, unpatterned shirts that fit well but don't make me look like I'm trying to show off my body.

    Love the Underarmour and the Nike dry fit.. Puma also makes some comfortable tops! tight but really lets you move!

    You can wear it as casual. Actually it's better to wear it as casual. Hell I wear i t every day...for work, casual, clubs, beach, etc. Always get compliments, too, because it looks so much better than the cookie-cutter clothes people usually wear. icon_wink.gif

    yourname2000 saidAre you talking about active wear shirts, made out of 'stay dry', thin/light material that drapes really nicely?

    Quicksilver has a line called "performance" and I have couple of long sleeves from them. Nike, Reebok, Adidas, Mondetta, AND1 all have lines.

    The BF actually turned me on to a chain of stores we have in Canada called "Winners" that sells famous brand stuff for usually 30-60% off. They have a helluva "active wear" section and I've been picking up quite a bit from there lately...average $20-30/shirt. If you've got a store like that (that's as well stocked as this one is), you might want to check that out. I was really surprised. Even got a nice Eurocup 2012 collared shirt there. Shit changes all the time.


    Clothes like in the link below where they contour your body.

    I just checked them out. They look good and I'll buy one and see how it fits.

    How well does the sizing match up?

    If you like the shirts at Nordstom, check there often. There are frequent sales and almost everything there eventually goes on clearance. Also check Nordstrom Off The Rack for some good deals. There are some good suggestions in this thread, but until you are familiar with the fit, visit actual stores. S, M, L, and XL mean almost nothing from brand to brand and if you are looking for a fit close to the body you do not have much room for error. Express and Urban Outfitters, already mentioned, both have things in your price range. Also try The Buckle and H&M for some good deals.

    I wear Ralph Lauren custom fit polo shirts (size L) and they are awesome.
    I can even wear them to work as business casual and really like them.
    But they aren't cheap.

    Try a Hanes wife-beater. Simple is sometimes the best.

    Mossimo Athletic Fit T-shirts. $8 each at Target, and the brahs over at bodybuilding.com are all over them.

    All Abercrombie & FItch and Hollister shirts are all muscle fit. Buckle shirts are also fitted.

    I checked out A&F today online and they didn't really have that great of a selection.

    Kohl's APT 9 also has some shirts that accent muscles nicely. I like the v-necks.

    True to size. If you're a small you should get a small

    The Mossimo shirts really are a hidden bargain, and do fit well. The fabric is light and drapes well. They're not quite as brutally tailored as the Abercrombie "muscle" cut shirts or the Hollister "surfer" cut shirts, but the thinner fabric makes up for that. Abercrombie and Hollister shirts tend to be too heavy to wear in really hot weather.

    I also like the Ralph Lauren custom fit shirts. I'm 5'9", 160 lbs. mesomorph (not big by any stretch), and my frame really shows off well in a small RL shirt. For casual t-shirts, I almost always buy a small, and get mediums for work shirts and less casual wear.

    The Express 1MX cut is also pretty brutal, particularly in the ultra slim lines. I have a couple of those shirts, and I have to really be feeling pretty to wear them. icon_wink.gif

    If you're looking for some quick bargains, TJ Maxx and Marshalls are everyone's dirty little secret, and if you keep up with their inventory turnover, you can get most major brands for dirt cheap.

    The BDG's are great... so long as you don't go with a deep V (I just think a deep V is somewhat emasculating... personal hangup I guess)

    I love Nordstrom's and can usually find a great fitting tee for $25 bucks on sale or clearance. Even less sometimes now that we are getting into Fall stuff. Never tried a Mossimo but looks comfortable...
