Sorry, didn't see this earlier, but FWIW, I'm ~6'1", ~150#. I tried the KW x TaT shirts, and, while they're very nice, it's definitely apparent (in person) that they're meant as dress shirts (fabric has more sheen, no back pleat, no pocket, no front placket, etc.). They also only go down to a size 15, which is definitely bigger than a BoO small. That said, they're extremely well made and the MoP buttons on them are incredible.

If you're not only skinny, but also tall, go with the RL Rugby. IME, a small University Oxford has slightly longer sleeves than a BoO small, which really does make a difference.

I wear both Rugby and RL Custom Fit in size Small. The Rugby line is slightly slimmer, but not by much.

Just picked up two of these at 25% off. They fit me pretty well (might have the sides taken in slightly), but I think they were a great value for about $45 each.

The fabric and stitching are both more than decent, and the collar shape is great.

I don't understand the hoopla over RRL oxfords. The one I tried on seemed baggier than the Rugby ones. Plus, the new selvedge model is obscenely priced, and the fabric isn't soft at all.

They had an in-store sale there or did the friends and family discount come around again? I could use another one of their oxfords.

There's a pseudo-charity sale going on right now in all Ralph Lauren brand stores for 25%. Basically, you get 25% off of the retail price, and 10% of that discount goes directly to a charity. I'm pretty sure it runs until the 12th. There's a thread around here somewhere with the online coupon code (same deal as brick and mortar locations).

In regards to the comparison between rugby shirts and ralph lauren custom fit shirts, rugby is definitely slimmer. I see the biggest difference in the back (profile). The rugby shirts fit snug and look a lot better than the custom fit shirts which have a good deal of space in the back. I wear a medium in both and I am able to wear the rugby shirts untucked and still have them look good, whereas the custom fit shirts don't look nearly as good untucked. The rugby shirts are also definitely slimmer than j crew and provide a sleeker profile.

Rugby shirts are terrific. Actually, in regards to the merits of the shirts, I might prefer Polo Custom Fit, but the best thing about the Solid University Oxfords is no logo!

for the price i def like these rugby oxfords.. i paid 44.00 using their recent 25% coupon


im 5'8 @ 155lbs..pretty athletic build
the small fits me even though its much slimmer than a jcrew oxford...the shirt is a tad longer than what i like

I find the rugby oxfords fit me better than any other shirt off the rack. However, I find they bleed around the collar after only a few washes, so I don't buy them anymore. Has anyone else had this problem?

I love the fit too, but I'm not too crazy about the quality. In fact, I think I'll be trading up my Rugby blue oxford for a Black Fleece one...

Does anyone have experience with Black Fleece oxfords?

Also, how about the new Land's End Varsity Collar oxford? Valet plugged it a couple weeks ago:
