Brooks Brothers Extra Slim Fit has Arrived - Page 3

Really hard to tell from that picture.

Sorry for the crappy pic. I guess I can try a 15/33 as I never wear a tie anyway?

I have a slim fit BD with center pleat and it fits like a tent. I can guarantee you that 1" slimmer at the waist isn't going to do anything. I never wear the shirt because it fits so terribly but I imagine if I took it to a tailer that I'd need to have the pleat removed and then have it darted at least 2 inches for each dart just to make it actually "slim". Heck, I have my RL Black Label darted. LOL.

I find 15/33 Slim Fits to be basically perfect for my frame. Shoulders are precise, waist is precise, chest is precise. Maybe I am just an anomaly, but the fit is not tent-like at all.

I think the current Slim Fit is fine for the most part, but there is some extra fabric around the waist chest that keeps it from being perfect (as RTW can be) . I just want something that looks more tailored without looking painted.

Something like this I suppose (body not sleeves):



Does anyone know when we should expect the next Brooks Brothers discount to hit (3 for $150)??

I tried on one of the extra slim fit sport shirts today in a Small. My measurements are in my profile for comparison. It fit very well around the body, and I can probably even get away with not shortening the sleeves, which is something I almost always have to do with OTR. Sleeve bagginess was average-to-good, which is probably all that can be expected from Brooks Brothers. I forgot to try and button the collar all the way up to check neck sizing. I didn't buy because of the logo, but if they come out with dress shirts, I will probably buy a few once they hit the 3/150-something stage.

Where is the logo? In the link provided by the original poster I didn't see a logo. I'm thinking you tried on something different?

Extra-slim sport shirts have a logo on the left chest. OP linked the dress shirt version, also seen in the fit pic above.

Any idea when more patterns will be released in the extra-slim dress shirts? As of now, seems like only a bold stripe is available.

How much does it cost to tailor a shirt? I've got 3 slim-fits from BrooksBrothers and they're both a bit baggy around the waist but perfect in the shoulders and arms. Could I just go to a Stitch-It or whatever or does it need to be an old Italian guy?

picked up one of the extra slimfits over the weekend, it's a great fitting shirt, easily the best thing Brooks has for sale for guys who are slim and dont carry extra belly.

The striped dress shirts have no logo (but the sports shirts do) and the 15/33 I picked up has a 20" pit-pit and 19" torso which is standard for true slimfit shirts. For the anal retentive, they even pattern matched the striping everywhere applicable.

Pretty excited about these shirts, I always want to shop more at Brooks but their fits usually prevent that.

also picked up the Black Fleece navy tartan shirt, and I think the extra slimfit shirt has a better fit and silhouette than the Black Fleece shirt.

lets not exaggerate. i have the standard slim fits in 14.5x33 and theyre good.
i have a few of the extra slims in 14.5x34 and its damn near *perfect*-- shoulders, sleeve length and width, chest (rarity), and waist.

5'10 145lb

shrinks a bit too much even on cold/low cycle though

My tailor charges $16 to take the sides in and slim the sleeves. Pretty good deal IMHO and the shirts fit great post-alteration. I am 5'6" 126lbs, so the alterations are pretty much a must-have for me with OTR shirts. My tailor is an old Korean guy and he is really good. He said he used to do bespoke shirts but he doesn't do them any more.
