I have no experience with BoO, but I got the sense that I'd have to size up to L in them (and they'd still likely be too short). I wear my normal neck size in RLBL and they are good about giving you enough chest room but providing enough waist suppression to fit slim. I really like that their pleats are at the outsides of the shoulders as opposed to center pleats. Having them at the edges allows more shoulder room.

I just got 5 of the sport shirts at 50 bucks a pop. I like the colors but I wish the fabric was more substantial

Have them removed. Shouldn't be hard for a qualified seamstress.

I'm a big fan of the American Apparel slim fit t-shirts, incredible comfort and they look great.

So i washed mine for the first time today... warm water, regular cycle, hang dry. Sleeves, chest, and length all shrank a little bit. Nothing major but now even more fitted, which is great

I just received mine yesterday and thought the fit was "okay." The fit was a little different than I expected, in that the shoulders/chest area is tight, but the arms and waist are still billowy. I'm wondering if I need to just stick with European brands and Hugo Red label shirts, since those seem to be cut best for me.

How much do the BB extra slim shirts shrink when you wash them? I'm considering returning mine. I would prefer the armholes to be higher and the waist to be smaller. If I keep them I think darting some inches away would make them much more wearable.

To be fair I don't think BoO are meant to be tucked in. All of their shirts are just made too short in general.

If they just continued to stitch the pleats all the way down like on some BoO shirts, the shirt would have a much better fitting torso. One thing about the BB ESF shirts is that it does bollow out from top to bottom because of the pleats at the top but it is just folded and opens up down the back of the shirt.

I decided that these shirts really werent good enough for the price, I ended up getting polo slim custom fits, much better fabric

what size is comparable to an H&M Easy Iron small? which fit me pretty good, but are a tad big
post #192 of 630
^^

If you are talking about the slim fit, then I would find it comparable to a 15 33. I just received this in the blue cotton fabric and love the fit (though the fabric is a bit meh...we shall see after a few washes if it softens up). To be honest, the H and M easy iron small is probably a bit tight on me as the one I used to have was from a couple seasons ago and I have put on some weight/muscle since then.

RFX45, does the Oxford shirt (I assume you bought a small) fit any differently from the measurements you posted earlier on the 14.5 dress shirt? I'm particularly wondering about the p2p measurement. I take a 14.5 neck, and I'm also one who gets RLBL darted, so yeah... the slimmer the better.

I actually got a 14.5x32 in the oxfords as well, it was considered a dress shirt so it wasn't sized by s, m, l, etc...

Hm, ok, thanks. Anybody else have the underarm-to-underarm measurement of one of the extra-slim-fit sport shirts sized Small which are currently available on the BB website?
