What's the best quality/style classic oxford shirt? RL?
post #2 of 19
Brooks Brothers Black Fleece is certainly one of the best available RTW OCBDs.

am i right in thinking that the black fleece come only in one set arm length for each neck size? so frustrating ...

Yes, neck diameter and sleeve length are limited to BB# size. If you fit into this mold, then perfect.

Otherwise the regular Brooks slim-fit oxford is a great alternative imo. Though regular shirts do without MOP buttons and extended collar points.

You could likely get an OCBD made with MOP buttons through BB MTM. Of course if you are going to anything resembling custom in the first place it should be easy to find high quality OCBDs.

I hear Mercer and Gitman do nice ones...

I like Gitman for beefy OCBD myself.

+1 for gitman/ individualized shirts

My favorite is the Brooks Brothers slim fit all cotton, the kind that requires ironing. In fact, I'm wearing one of these shirts right now, with brick red stripes.

IMO the BB OCBD is the best that I've owned; however, I honestly think that the RL "Blake" shirt is really under appreciated, save the logo on the chest.

I think Mercer are the best available right now. Great collar roll and fabric.

Polo BDs have terrible collars for wearing with a tie, though.

Nice name BTW...

Doesn't Gitman make the American BBs?

Gitman Brothers shirts are made in their own factory in Ashland, Pennsylvania. Gitman also makes shirts for Thom Browne and Cole Haan. Brooks Brothers made in the usa shirts are manufactured by the Garland shirt factory in Garland, North Carolina. The Garland shirt factory is a subsidiary of Brooks Brothers.

Thanks. I think I was confusing the two.
