Gents,

I am ordering some dress shirts online, and noticed that one of the shirts I'm interested in is offered in several different fits. The classic fit of course, and also a "Fitted" and an "Athletic." Any idea what the difference is between the two? I don't know which one would be more slim-fitting, and I can't find any help online.

Athletic is generally broader in the chest and slimmer in the waist. That fit is generally for the very well defined muscle guys. Fitted is generally slimmer in both the chest and the waist, and that's for the thin among us.
Where are you looking to purchase? I might be able to elucidate.

In general, manufacturers will give the general measurements of the different cuts on their sites. Often it's simply a manner of looking and comparing.
