I need some new shorts for smart/workwear to wear with suits and wonder if anyone has recommendations of slim shirts? They are to be worn with ties.
I have lots of the Ralph Lauren slim fit shirts but these are great for casual wear, but being button down look rubbish with a shirt/suit. I have not had need of wearing a suit for quite some time, so do not own many smart shirts that can be worn with a suit and tie. The ones I do have are about a year old from M&S - supposedlt their slim fit, but seem too bellowy around the upper arms and too much excess material.
Does anyone know of good slim shirts - I only need a few, but don't want to spend a fortune on them - am more concerned about the fit. Is TM Lewin any good?

Not bought any, so can't vouch for them, but Charles Tywhitt do an 'extra slim' as well as 'slim' range:

I LOVE TM Lewin's "Fully fitted" range. It's perfect. Yeah, their slim fit shirts are OK too, but I would almost always go with their fully fitted range. Check them out - you can try a "demo" shirt at all TM Lewin outlets.
In comparison, I think Saville Row's slim fits are awful - way too much material, and the shirt "puffs" out of your trousers. Avoid.
