How is the quality of their OCBDs relative to the competition in the same price range (sub $100)?

There OCBDs are better than shirts that cost twice as much. 

 

EDIT:  These OCBDs are my favorite regardless of price.  I'm sure a company like Luxire could mimic the collar roll and use a better fabric and produce you a better shirt MTM.  But OTR, these are my favorite.  Granted, I haven't went out in search of the worlds best OTR OCBD.

 

I'll add that if you see something you like and it's available in your size, pull the trigger on it.  Their inventory does not last long.  I've had an item that was in my cart sell as I was checking out.

I was at their store on Madison Avenue and their casual shirts look fantastic. Didn't bother trying them on though but I have them in mind when restocking. Their ties are pretty solid too.

Sounds good.  The shirts look great from pics I've seen online.  Luckily I am in NYC so I will check out their Madison Ave store this weekend.

quality is outstanding as others have said, but sizing does not follow US conventions. I really like their construction but fit does not work for me. If you're in NYC, definitely worth checking out in person.

Anyone think the shoulders are pretty wide? I'm 5'7, 155 and wear a 36S jacket. Usually, a 38/15 shirt will fit me ok, but the listed measurements put these smaller sized shirts as having an 18" shoulder width. That sounds nuts; the seam would sag big time on me if that's true.

I'm in CA and would love to try their stuff.

I wear a size 39/87 in tokyo slim.  The yoke is listed at 47 cm, or 18.5" on the website.  Mine is 46 cm, which is 18.1.  My shirt has been washed in cold water and hung dried.  Shrinkage should be minimal, I guess.  Anyway, mine is 1 cm less than listed.  

 

Your sizes 38 and neck is listed at 46 cm.  I wouldn't be surprised if it's actually 45 cm, based on my shirt.  45 would be 17.7 inches

 

FWIW, I consider the shoulders to be slim compared to other slim fit size 39s.  The shirt altogether is very slim.

Cheers, man. Do you have a fit pic of the shirt so I can see the shoulder seam?

What is your usual jacket size?

I'm the same. With the right chest it's long for me in 39-87. Waist is also too wide, but I think that's par for the course for OTR.

On my phone right now, but there might be pictures of me in the 39-87. I'm around 150, 5'5", 38 chest

I've been trying out Kamakura dress shirts the past few weeks and my favorite thusfar is the 200 series. I've tried a dobby, a pinpoint oxford and a cashmere blend at the lower pricepoint. I've also tried the 200 series "micro twill".
For me, the 200 series is worth the extra $. It truly feels and looks like a luxury shirt.

Definitely want to dive in on their Tokyo Slim, but they do not have my size (43-89).

 

Do they use rear side pleats on any of their shirts?

Yes, definitely do it in Tokyo slims.

I'll have to look when I get home, but I feel like Tokyo slim dress shirts are darted with no pleats. Tokyo slim ocbds have box pleats for sure.
