Just want to confirm. These are OCBD's, right? I have read they are the only american made shirt at Brooks Brothers, but they have a few button downs. I just want to confirm before I pull the trigger on 4. Thanks.

This is what you want:

http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Classic-All-Cotton-Traditional-Fit-Button-Down-Oxford-Dress-Shirt/001E,default,pd.html?dwvar_001E_Color=BL&contentpos=1&cgid=men

Regular, slim fit, and extra slim fit.

Thanks for the reply othertravel. Maybe Fitzgerald isn't a good fit for me, in my lack of experience I had tried them on simply because I'd thought the other fits would be too boxy, it was my first time in a BB store, and I had trouble getting any help. I am 5'6" 145#, a 33 waist with a somewhat large seat area and fairly broad shoulders- I think a 39 would probably fit my shoulders though.

 

In a 40S the pants not only seemed to large in the waist but generally too large in the crotch area / leg circumference, the legs billowed slightly. The waist can obviously be corrected, but can the leg/crotch issue be corrected by the tailor in the store? The shoulders are a tiny bit big too, which as far as I know, there's no way to correct? Do you think id be better off looking at another cut?

 

Thanks!

To all you gents who own regular cotton (i.e. non-non-iron) dress shirts, do you have to iron them after you take them out of the drier?

Agreed. The one Slam linked says that it's imported.

Can you give a link to where you read that?

1. Brooks Brothers has many different shirts which are made in Garland, North Carolina. Not just OCBD's. A few seconds of research on their website would confirm this.
2. BB Non-Iron shirts are made in Malaysia.

I know it's not really trad, but BB needs more color options. That, or lose the lame logo on thier sport shirt version.

Yes! Absolutely.

Does anyone currently own the Madison fit wool gab trousers?
I'm thinking of stocking up on the basic colors.
For $100 a pop are they of good quality?

I'm about the same size. 5"5" 155 lbs, 38" chest, 33 true waist (measured around my belly button), broad shoulders from what I have been told, and the Fitzgerald cut seems to fit me OK.

That is correct, that the shoulders are not an easy fix and if they don't fit you should probably not buy.

A tailor can take the seat in, but I'm not sure about the front of the pants. I would take it to your personal tailor though as Brooks Brothers will send it out anyway and you may have to pay more than going direct.

I have four pairs and like them well enough. They're a good value in that $85-100 price range.
