They'll be coming out with some more university stripe OCBDs around mid-June.

The sizing is downright weird on the Tokyo slim.  15 3/4 neck 33 Sleeve.  16 neck 35 sleeve Or 33.5.  You need a 34 and 34.5 sleeve option on the 15 3/4 and 16 neck.  Current variation makes zero sense as you build your american clientele. NY slim is to baggy and the Sleeve lengths are just as perplexing.

The NY Slim definitely isn't baggy. It is bigger than the Tokyo (on purpose) but not baggy. The sleeve lengths are strange, lucky I have long arms.

Agreed. Was hoping to pick up a few shirts today but their size selection is surprisingly limited. That's said, customer service was great and I believe MTM will be available come August.

True that. Will def get 4 shirts at that time. The Tokyo slim is perfect, just need a 15 3.4 neck and a 34.5 sleeve.

+1, def not baggy. i could fit into both tokyo slim and ny slim but went with ny because it was longer in the body and will stay tucked in. the sleeves on tokyo slim were also a hair short.

The Tokyo is slimmer than the NY...to slim or not to slim is personal preference and based on body type.

We can all agree that the sleeve lengths are out of wack, mtm cant happen soon enough.

Seen as their service is very good, couldn't we send them an email asking for normal sleeve lengths?

normal in America is the abnormal in Japan, looks like they operate on cm, so guess it depends on how flexible their manufacturing are then...

Normal is a subjective concept, but of course I meant normal for EU & US standards.

I got a decent white with a spread collar - 16.5, 33.  I have relatively short arms so this may work for me.  Just too baggy at waist so need to get altered.

 

Not sure why folks so excited for MTM at $180/shirt.  I would go to CEGO/shirtmaven at that price range and get a precise fit with many more choices.

gladly I fall into the easy to fit category, so at 79, it's a great buy

Been wearing my three Tokyo Slim oxfords a lot. Just ordered four more today. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Let me make this clear: THESE ARE THE BEST VALUE OXFORD SHIRTS ON THE MARKET

-Collar is just awesome
-Great flat felled stitching
-The Xinjiang cotton is noticeably higher quality. Thick yet soft. (See the microscope comparison pics on the first page of this thread)
-Darts are a nice feature (I hate baggy Brooks Brothers oxfords)
-Fit is perfect

Agreed, I just wish they would re-stock some 16's in BD's on the webstore.
