I feel like this is a thread that should have been made.

Discuss brands whose fit you like most, or any sales or inquiries.

Thrifted 'lo mostly. I work at Goodwill, so I'm constantly checking for 15-15 1/2s, haven't been able to get any colours other than blue. Other brands I'll grab if they're wrinkle resistant, that shit's awesome.

Anyone tried the Brooks Brothers slim-fits? I wanna order some, but they have an X-slim too, so I'm not sure. BB sizing, in the basic line anyways, seems big.

I really like h&m/ polo.
Anyone fuck with American apparel button ups? Thought they looked nice but went and tried one on the other day and something about the fit was just off. Maybe it's just me?

I have one I scooped from work, it's actually really nice. $6, I don't know what they run new, but I imagine there's better options for the price.

h&m doesn't fit very well for me. too long, and shoulders are too tight.
i really like lands end canvas. size down 1. kind of long in the body, but chest and arms fit is perfect for me.
i like american apparel buttonups, but not worth retail. i size down 1.
uniqlos great, slim fit, perfect sleeve length, just a tad ballooning around stomach.

American Apparel's Unisex XXS Oxfords are actually the best fitting I've found so far (sleeve length is perfect, open pleat back allows for a range of bust and waist sizes, shoulders are wonderfully narrow), but they wrinkle and attract lint like crazy! Got mine at a sample sale, so it was was worth the sale price.

Generally I wear the AA short-sleeve oxford (also XXS) because of the thinner and lower-maintenance fabric, and in a pattern, it looks less wrinkled than it really is, so I wear it with an open-front sweater/blazer. If anyone knows a similar fit in a higher quality fabric, I'd love to hear, please.

H&M is too long in the sleeves (I fold them up for a faux French cuff), and tight across the stomach and a little tight across the bust (visible gaps between the buttons), but the shoulders are perfect on me.

Uniqlo is also too long in the sleeves (similar to H&M) and there is bit of that unattractive button gap across the stomach when something is just a little too small. Shoulders are wider than H&M or AA, too. Good quality fabric in the non-iron version.

Express is doable - top button is always a little further down on my bust than I'd like, so I make do with an undershirt. Sleeves are long, so I get 3/4 sleeved or roll them up. Shoulders are a little wide like Uniqlo's, but have more structure, so it sticks up in a rectangular shape if I raise my arms up and don't adjust afterwards. Sizing is inconsistent because vanity sizing gets worse every season, so I try to thrift them.

Banana Republic's former button-backs were alright, but I found the fabric a little thin and casual. Couldn't find the perfect size that wouldn't balloon in the upper back while also fitting my bust & stomach (slight gaps between buttons, less than in Uniqlo, but still unsightly).

I've had men recommend Brooks Brothers & Charles Tyrwhitt non-irons to me, too, so I will check those and report back in case anyone is interested.

Copped some Uniqlo Oxford last week. Grown into medium now, sleeves fit perfect but the hem is like long.
Anyone recommend any brand which have a shorter hem?
