    The only shirts that actually fit me perfectly is Armani exchange's shirts (xs) down side is that it's hella expensive.

    Have you tried on the dress shirts at Express? The 1MX line I think they call it? These have a little bit of stretch in the material and flatter a nice physique. I'm too chunky to get away with them (and probably too old) but someone with a nice body could rock them.

    Oh also if you want to go a cheaper route you can try H&M it's a lot more affordable then Armani Exchange. Zara is also a nice fit for my body as well, but that's a bit pricey too.

    According to my calculations, you're 176 lbs and approx. 6'? (My settings are all in metric.) J. Crew and Club Monaco make decent fitting clothes for the average american, average being 5'8" approx. 150-160 lbs. Banana Republic is another decent one, though, their quality is not as great. Brooks Brothers shirts will fit you for sure. (That's my favourite brand.)

    It also depends on your style of dress.

    There's an app called fitbay that can help you out. You put in your arm length, leg length, torso type and it'll give you brands that best suit you. A guy on youtube called alpha m did a video on it.

    I'm agreeing with Express. I was there last weekend and they had 3-4 different fits of their dress shirts, all the way down to Extra Slim. I was surprised that the latter fit me quite well. I'm so used to avoiding slim-anything pants because of my thighs/butt haha.

    I'm too self conscious to wear a fitted shirt.
    Not cuz I'm out of shape...the exact opposite in fact.
    I'm super tall and muscular.
    I go OUT OF MY WAY to make sure people can't see my body.
    My delts give it away, but by the time people realize what they r looking at, I'm hopefully gone from their line of site.
    I dont wanna be perceived as a meahead.

    That's impossible to say, because you are unique. If you've got a true hourglass figure, then shirts with an "Athletic Build" might be good.

    The problem with US shirt sizes is that they tend to be based on your neck size. Especially with dress shirts. Have a thick neck and you wanna button the collar for a tie then you're gonna get a voluminous shirt body with that big collar.

    I do have a thick neck, so I simply have my dress shirts tailored down. Even now, when my figure is hardly hourglass. And it doesn't cost that much.

    Go to a private seamstress. She won't charge that much. Buy a nice shirt, but not an Armani or some other overpriced label, not a pricey shirt that you still won't know if it was constructed for YOUR personal build until you've bought it.

    Buy a medium price shirt, and pay the additional $20 or $30 dollars to have the shirt fitted to YOUR size. It'll fit you better than the more expensive designer label, even adding on the tailoring cost. And you KNOW it will fit you, custom made to your size.

    Most shirts that fit my shoulders have too much fabric around the waist. Shirts from the following companies fit me well high and low:

    Zara
    Express
    The Kooples
    Jack Spade
    Thom Browne/Black Fleece

    Try Barena Venezia and Robert Graham (contemporary cut). Of the two, I gravitate towards Barena.
