30+ pages of gibberish about slim dress shirts from some lame chain store. What I learned....
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.
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.
