For Bistecca alla Fiorentina I can recommend Alessi (Pentola D'Oro) on via di Mezzo 24-26 r (all'angolo con via dei Pepi) - Firenze. If you are in Florence for a while I would recommend heading through to Bologna for the day. Not only is Bologna full of great shops it has some excellent restaurants with Papagallo among my favourites. http://alpappagallo.it/
Based on the shirts I've measured, Hugo Boss Extra Slim fit comes out the slimmest.
See my post here. Your findings are consistent with what I have found. http://www.styleforum.net/t/35147/the-definitive-guide-to-slim-fit-shirts/2200_50#post_5947062
+1 Unlike some of the others, Emmett will let you start with just one shirt, rather than having to buy at least three.
You may also want to look at Hugo Boss shirts. They are generally slimmer than the mainline brands like Thomas Pink, Charles Tyrwhitt, TM Lewin and Brooks Brothers.
I haven't seen any evidence of the Brooks Brothers Slim Fit getting slimmer, but there is evidence that the Extra Slim Fit has got slimmer. I was reviewing the Brooks Brothers Extra Slim Fit sizes and the shirt waist measurements given on the Brooks Brothers size charts have changed and come down by an inch. The waist measurements for the Extra Slim Fit used to be 38 inches for the 14.5 inch collar and go up two inches for each half inch collar size, so the 17 inch...
I can't help you with the sizes, but if you are buying TM Lewin put their is currently a voucher code CHRISTMAS which gives 15% off. It expires on Monday 3rd December.
My mistake, wrote that response too quickly. You're correct.
I think you can be pretty confident that the TM Lewin collar is 16.25. Their returns policy means I wouldn't have any concerns about buying it and then returning it if you find it doesn't fit. Regarding the comparative sizing. the TM Lewin Fully Fitted shirts tend to be narrower through the chest and the waist than the Charles Tyrwhitt Tailored Fit/Extra Slim Fit, but this is not true for all collar sizes.
+ 1 If you want to look on line, Mr Porter in the UK sell some Brooks Brothers products. But they are charging £155 for shirts! Best avoided. http://www.mrporter.com/Shop/Designers/Brooks_Brothers
