They're not particularly slim.
There's nothing special about them.
They go on sale all the time.
They offer a non-iron luxury model.
People "load up" on them, buying 10 at once.
People are largely only buying them for their daily "office uniform".

they are the best fitting shirt I have ever bought and I get them for 60 off since I work there. So all in all it's a damn good shirt at a damn good price. It's not like my jil, eg, tb, etc shirts that I own but they certainly serve there purpose well.

That it just a general translation chart. Doesn't specify any fit. And I already have a size Small shirt from Brooks Brothers in extra slim fit and it fits good. But the 14.5 in extra slim fit doesn't.

Like many people in here I dicked around with trying to find truely slim fitting shirts off the rack for several years and was never satisfied. I finally decided to go the custom route and went to CEGO a couple of months ago. I highly reccommend it and my only regret is that I didn't do it earlier. I've thrown out or donated so many $80 OTR shirts.

Kind souls of SF, please help.

Could someone measure a Extra Slim Fit size 16 and 16.5 across the chest and shoulders?

I plan on buying the Supima ones, that are made in the USA. Do they shrink, you say?

I don't live in the US, unfortunately, so I have no way of trying them on before buying.


Thanks in advance

I bought the gingham extra slim fit dress shirt from BB recently in 16 x 36. It measures 21" from armpit to armpit.

Thank you for your response.

I'm curious to see if this is the case for the Made in USA ones, as I got the idea that they were slightly different from the imported ones.

Can someone w/a somewhat athletic build post a fit with one of these? I'm losing my shit trying to find an OBDC shirt for a 42" chest/33" waist that I won't have to get tailored.

Im pretty much those measurements, found the 15.5/34 to be uncomfortable on the shoulders/chest, loose in the waist. arms nice and slim, will prob go in and try the 16 to see if its more comfortable then just slim it down/dart it. but yea if you don't want to tailor it you'll likely find it too loose in the waist.

Don't think they'll work off the rack. They're pretty much cut in a straight line from chest on down.

Love their fit but my only knock on them is the collar. Wish they'd offer more spread.

Dawg you're not gonna find one. Go to a tailor.

Love their Supima Extra Slim Fit shirts (made in usa).

Has anyone any experience with the Luxury Collection Supima Extra Slim Fits? They're made in usa too but woven in Italy. They're a lot more expensive, though I'm running out of the standard colors.

Ah damn it... It is hard to find pics of the side & sleeve seams, anyone know what kind they have?
