Best Slim Fit Shirts - Page 3

I know this isn't a great authority but... http://forums.filmnoirbuff.com/viewtopic.php?id=5941

and from personal experience, straight up, i can't wear extra slim fit 14.5, 32 but the BB00 fits perfectly. i'm pretty sure it is slimmer than extra slim fit but i will defer to my elders

Anything by BB isn't slim fit let's be honest.

I know exactly what you mean! I really like Charles Tyrwhitt's overall tailored-looking aesthetic (and I loved the shoes I bought from them) but when the "extra slim fit" shirts I ordered still billowed at the waist it was a disappointment. I too am looking for something classically tasteful, not too much more than $50, and that flatters a broad shouldered, slim physique (I am 6', 175, 39 chest and 32 waist). Surely it can't be that hard? Ideas, gentlemen, please.

What neck size are you buying?

I found some nice One at TM Lewin.


I was verry happy about the 17.5 with a 38 length in slim fit

Just found this thread. Tried some M&S Slim Fits. Pretty cozy.

RLBL and Turnbull & Asser slim fit are pretty good OTR, but I agree with just getting a shirt which fits your neck, shoulders and sleeves and darting it.

In terms of true OTR slim fit shirts I've pretty much given up and just get them darted for $15. Seems to be the going rate these days.
