I am looking to buy some dress shirts to go with a tailor-made suit that fits my rotund frame. I do not, however, want to shell out $145 (price my tailor quoted me) for a tailor-made shirt as well. I'm 5'8", with a 19" neck and 35" sleeve size. I wear a 52" waist but I am significantly rounder (58") at the, uh, widest part of my belly. I bought some shirts from my usual place for big men's clothing.
I typically buy 3XL shirts for my more casual wear (button collar); I got this
in 3XL and it fits like a charm, albeit a big long in the sleeves.
However, I got this
for a dress shirt with a 19" neck and 34/35" sleeves, and doesn't fit me very well at all. When I button it and sit down, the shirt stretches like crazy and "comes apart" all down the middle (imagine this
but on a dude's belly).
Can anyone point me to a place where I can decent dress shirts (upper limit say $70 each) in white and blue on the internets? I could get it altered afterward, obviously. Thanks.
