I picked up one of the checked dress shirts during the Ebay sale. I've been wanting to try one of these for a while, so I figured I'd get a trial shirt. We'll see how it goes. I have one of their slim fit shorts and it fits reasonably well, but is a touch too much material in the lower section, so I have high hopes for this one.
I like that blue checked one but they don't have it in 14.5 x 32.
I agree with whoever said that the pocket is slightly too large, I also find that it's placed a little low on the chest but I'm short so that's probably a factor. Don't know if this is common knowledge but I emailed customer service asking when the extra-slim fits might be offered in non-iron and got this response:
Thank you for contacting Brooks Brothers customer service.
We are happy to hear that you like our new extra-slim fit shirts. Regrettably, we will not be
introducing this fit into tour Non-Iron Collection until the Fall 2011 season.
Please contact me if you have any further questions.
When did they email you this? Just wondering if non-iron has been pushed back. On May 21st, they emailed me: Thank you for contacting Brooks Brothers customer service. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with us regarding our extra-slim fit shirts. We appreciate your taking the time out of your busy day to send us your comments. The non-iron version will be coming out in the Fall of 2010. Please contact us if you need further assistance. Sincerely, Lucy McGrane Email Correspondence Coordinator Brooks Brothers
