What would you recommend? I have a pretty long torso and I find it quite frustrating when my shirts are too short. I'm pretty close to just ordering MTM but I'd prefer to not have to.

I find the arm holes on the slim fit shirts to be too low...the regular shirts are fine but very blousy.

Has anyone tried their Black Label or their Tailored fit line? Supposedly those run a lot slimmer than their slim fit, which I think runs pretty huge compared to slim fit lines from some other makers. I haven't been near a store in a while so I haven't been able to try one on, and I didn't want to buy one and then return it if even their Tailored fit line was still too big.

i bought 4 for $200 of their tailored fit shirts.
i like them better than the extra slim ones from brooks brothers.
the fit is a tad slimmer but in my opinion more comfortable than the ones from BB.

What about compared to the extra slim fit?

Has anyone tried the Black Label suits from Tyrwhitt? How do they compare to other RTW?

The end-of-season sale ended on the website yesterday. Today the new spring line is up, with prices "were x, now y" halfprice basically site-wide.

I tried one tailored fit shirt ... didn't notice too much of a difference with the regular 'slim fit'. (Certainly not enough to downgrade from Sea Island Cotton slim fit shirts.)

How are the armholes on the tailored fit? Even on their slim fit, the armholes seemed to sag pretty low. If at least the armholes are higher on the tailored fit, it might be worth it to pick some up and then just have my tailor slim down some of the billowy-ness out of the waist.

Just ordered the white cutaway collar slim-fit poplin for wedding season!

I find, in general, that their casual trousers offer better value than their shirts.

I am pleased with the shirts when you price them at 35-40$.

Its also worth mentioning that they do shorten the overall length of the trim fit shirts. Its a problem if you are respectably tall and plan on tucking them in. I am 6'4 and I had to return TM Lewin and CT slim fit shirts, exchange them for regular, then take them to the tailor.

I picked up 4 CT shirts last week. They worked out to be about 15 pounds each (with VAT deducted for international orders).

Unfortunately I wasn't very impressed with the shirts. The material was passable, but the so-called slim fit was not very flattering (generally quite loose and baggy, particularly in the sleeves), The colours and patterns were also off, relative to the picture on the website.

In the end I shipped them back to the UK at my expense. Lesson learned!

Also note, their generous 3-month return policy does not apply to sale items (i.e. about 99% of their stock).

+1, the body of the shirts are definitely too short for me.
Do not buy these shirts if you have a long torso. They will not fit you.
