Tapered shirts

Anyone know of any well tapered off the rack shirts? Tried a few and all way too baggy around the waist. I usually just go down a size as I don't have to wear a tie at work but I've got a wedding coming up so I'll need to be able to do up the collar and want to look sharp ;)

Don't have enough time to get one made or I'd probably just do that.

    Go to a good shop that sells suits, they will sell various Casual and Tailored cut shirts, Tailored have tapered backs.

    Been to all the decent shirt/suit places about, nothing is cut as tapered as I want/need it. Need a 16.5" collar and I'm a 32" waist so everything billows and looks ****e. Guess I'll just have to go for the slimmest cut I can and get it altered.

    Looks like they might be an option, the 16.5" slim says it goes up to a 35" waist which is better than a lot I've been looking at.

    They do what they call a modern fit as well, not sure what kind of cut they are, if you shop around you can find them on good offers.

    M&S only take collar/chest size and you choose the fit - I've got one of their slimmest fit shirts and it's not slim at all tbh.

    Annoys me that it's so hard to buy a nice fitting shirt!

    I remember when this used to be a problem for me 

    You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.

    Yeah fortunately we are wearing waistcoats but I'm sure it'll come off at some point!
