Plus it's the only thing I can find that even remotely works for a tall lifter's build without really extensive tailoring. Good lengths and proportions all around.
A few months ago? Like I said, they are fine for the bar/club on the weekends, so that's what I buy them for when they are on sale. I like the fit and the slight shine they have to them... for going out. They are definitely not a good look for the office - because you look like a fresh-faced asshole who doesn't know how to dress professionally for the office.
Get a real dress shirt, get it tailored if you have to. Have you tried Brooks Brothers Extra Slim? Or, I guess, have you gone to a store and gotten measured for what size shirt you should get? If a "only comes in XS-XXL + fitted, slim, or extra slim fit" from Express fits you perfectly, you can definitely find the right size in a more adult dress shirt line.
For reference, I wear an XL extra slim at Express, and a 17/35 extra slim at Brooks Brothers. 6 foot, 215, athletic + beer gut build lol.
