sounds like someone still has some attachment issues..
Another option is Benjamin Bixby.. I know, there are some haters, but the OCBD is actually quite nice. Cut is slimmer than my Rugby with slightly longer sleeves, and the construction is on a whole different level, but you're stuck with the Andre 3000 affiliation. They can be had for cheap now.. I scored a blue one about a month ago for $60. had them for $48 (all gone now).
Has anyone else noticed how similar the RRL Oxford is to the Rugby University oxford? I bought a Rugby OCBD and had the sides taken in, now a much better fit.. but it too long to be worn untucked (and probably a little too pricey for what it is).
I wear a 15 34/35 in a measured dress shirt and find the medium BR shirt neck too big and the sleeves too short. Zara shirts fit me almost perfectly, which seem to fit exactly like a Paul Smith shirt I have. On the other hand, I find the new spring / summer blazer and sport coats are pretty nice, slim with decent waist suppression. Of course the sleeves are too short for my monkey long arms, but at least the tailor can fix.

The finalist who wore a well fitting black suit got a job offer. I think the black suit is also an interview faux pas.. at least, given the cut, it's much more subtle than the above mentioned purple tie and square. Seriously though, this isn't rocket science, if you're...
