    Sorta random question

    Primal Fuel
    Where can I buy dress shirts that fit me (14.5 neck, 40 chest, 29 waist)? I've looked in almost every store and am kind of frustrated. "Slim fit" or "athletic fit" shirts are usually something like 15.5 neck, 40 chest, 34 waist and make me look like I don't know how to tuck in my shirt properly.

    I can't afford real custom tailoring at the moment. I'm skeptical of those made-to-fit online ventures after my friend had two poor experiences from two different companies.

    Is there an affordable (<$50 a shirt) solution?

    Do Express shirts fit you? Geek has a similar issue and theirs fit him perfectly.

    buy the closest that fits and have it altered. that's what we have to do for DH.

    Now, we go to a shop where alterations are included, and they also have three kinds of styles: duck, dog, and fish. DH buys in the dog label because it's the athletic fit. Then, they include the alterations with the purchase. It's *great* for him. But he did pay $98 for a pair of jeans.

    Anyway, most dry cleaners have people who do alterations and it's relatively low cost. Might add $5-6/per garment to the price, but it's worth it if it fits.

    Haven't checked them out, thanks for the tip. The models on the website do look like my body type.

    I wonder what kind of fit the Duck and Fish styles are, must be a New Zealand thing I'm not certain but I think alterations at dry cleaners are more expensive here in the states, at least where I'm living at the moment.
