Brooks Brothers Extra Slim Fit Shirts - Page 31

post #451 of 630
It looks like they have extra slim fit for non-iron and luxury shirts as well. Also, their plain sport shirts doesn't have the logo on the chest anymore but they place a pocket instead, why can't they just make a plain sport shirt?

The 14.5 doesn't work to wear all day at the office, it gets too uncomfortable after a while.

I also bought a ocbd sport shirt in extra slim fit in small but that fits just fine.

I've also tried a 15x34 slim fit, the fit is nice exepct the arms is really wide so it got to be adjusted by a tailor and I don't really wanna do that.

I've got a 14.5" neck so I don't wanna buy to big neck. But do you think sizing up to a 15x33 extra slim fit would work? Or should straight to a 15.5x33?

15.5 is a size 40 chest, Its going to be too big for you. Are you wearing a tie to the office? If not, dont worry about the neck size, just get the right chest size.

isn't it obvious? get a 14.5x33 traditional fit. that's the only way you're going to get the right collar size, the right sleeve length, and lower armholes.

Are they available at every Brooks Brothers?
I went to the Brooks Brothers Outlet store in Carlsbad CALIFORNIA
and they said they dont carry them.

They aren't really... I was @ the San Francisco store and, even at a big place like that near Union Sq, and in a city where they probably would want to stock up on ELS...they didn't have a lot of stuff. Pretty much just went in and found my size and then bought everything online. 3 shirts for ~$200...and there is a 15% off coupon for extra savings, but factor in tax + shipping... ...still not bad for ~$65 a shirt...which I rotate strictly for work...don't think these are good casual shirts...

Outlets do not carry the Extra-slim. The only chance they may have extra-slim is if some 1818 extra-slims slip in way after clearance in the normal stores. Otherwise there are no 346 extra-slim.

And even in regular BB stores, the selection is real limited. The local one I went to only had 1 style in extra-slim.

Yeah - I think I saw maybe one of the 1818's in the Vegas factory store. Otherwise the SA said they're pretty exclusive to regular stores and online.

I love some of the colors on the garment dyed washed oxford sport shirts ($40 ea on clearance right now). Can these be worn untucked? I thought I read before that they are too long to be worn untucked...

Yes, they're to long to wear untucked, or at least it's made for wear tucked in because it's pretty long.

Well, I got a 37 chest and 14.5 is supposed to be for 37 chest so sizing up is want I want to. 15 is for 39 chest and 15.5 41. I don't wear a tie to the office everyday but I want to be able to wear a tie to my shirts. 15 for neck size would work pretty good too. Guess I'm trying with 15x33 extra slim fit then.

You're kidding right? I said the slim fit was to blousy in the arms.

Even the sport shirts? I only have the dress shirts so I am not sure if the it is the same length.

the armhole and sleeves on the slim fit and traditional are the same. the only way to get a slimmer sleeve is to size down, e.g. 15 -> 14.5. you could try a 14.5x33 slim fit instead of 15x34, but it may be too small in the chest. traditional fit has a larger chest, so i still recommend trying a 14.5x33 traditional fit.

Seems like you don't read what I'm writing. My regular size is 14.5. But WHY would I want a tradional fit when I think the slim fit is to loose fit? I'm getting a extra slim fit.

a request for measurements: does anyone have a 15.5 on hand to get a p2p reading?
post #465 of 630
you've only tried a slim fit in size 15. if you had tried a 14.5 slim fit, things would be simpler. as it is, we can't be certain that sizing up in extra slim fit will solve your problems. the collar will definitely be too large, the chest may not be big enough, and the armhole may still be too small. collar size is the last thing you want to mess with, so you should be finding out what the armhole and chest sizes are in size 14.5 by trying other fits.
