I hate the parachute effect and I don't mind getting a shirt on special tailored, especially if I like the color/pattern. I just didn't know what my alternatives were as most my work attire I just get tailored.

I like Brooks Brothers' slim-fit shirts--they fit me pretty well. I've tried the extra-slim-fit shirts, but I'm a little too barrel-chested (all those years of opera training) and they pull across my chest/shoulders.

Thats the thing, I don't mind tailoring, but paying $80 for a work shirt bothers me when I could get a shirt on clearance for $20-$30, get it tailored for $10 and be done with it.

Express has a good line of slim fit stuff too that fits me better. I have a stocky chest and I'm short, so the stuff I find that fits me in the chest/neck is a parachute down the torso without tailoring.

Yep, it sounds like a quick tailoring is your best bet.

Sort of like when you walk through a haunted house and you can feel the presence of an evil spirit.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Just start at the beginning and read the whole thread. Then you'll start to understand.

A lot of misconceptions about this thread would be avoided if people would simply read the whole thing.
