the casual shirts fit way slimmer than advertised. i'm a 16/35 tokyo slim, ordered a L tokyo in a denim shirt and its skin tight.

Does Kamakura not get much love around here anymore?

Still wish I could wear Kamakura shirts. Perfect in every way except the arm holes are too high for comfort IME.

I want to buy the navy button down too but don't want to deal with the returns. Going email the NY store. Otherwise, I have a sizeable rotation and then some. I want some thicker stripe oxfords if I could choose from a wider selection. Still my favorite shirts OTR.

I wish they made some trousers that I can fall in love with too.

They actually do... in Japan. Hopefully they'll expand their North American offerings to include more products:

Anymore guidance on the vintage shirts?

Blackwatch is now back and I must get this and the solid navy. I am a Tokyo Slim Fit 39-87 and thinking about the NY size M (40-87). Is the neck and body going to be too wide? Not too concerned about the neck since I leave my button downs open with at the first or second notch.

The Tokyo vintage shirts seem too short in the sleeves, size medium (39-83).

I bought the navy today went from Tokyo slim to Tokyo...I'll check in Monday I think they do 2ish shipping

If it helps, I wear the NY Slim dress shirts in size 39-90, and I have an older Vintage Ivy chambray shirt in NY size M. The sleeves are a bit shorter than on my dress shirt, but still acceptable, and it's plenty slim for me. It's a hard call, since the Vintage Ivy NY Size S might also work for you, but depending on how your Tokyo Fit 39-87 fits it might be slightly small. I generally err on the side of slightly larger when I'm not sure, since I assume I can try to carefully shrink it in the dryer if I want to.

I rarely find anything both wearable and purchasable. I am looking for NY slim fit in a 42. Of course, as I look in another tab, there is a pretty good blue pencil stripe broadcloth

Sizing and fit is really optimized not for ny market in my opinion...

I'll be visiting NYC in 3 weeks, hoping to get some linen shirts from Kamakura while I'm there. Will they have any in store or do they stock seasonally?

What's the call on it? You guys like the fit?

I need to stop buying Tokyo/Tokyo slim. While they fit great in the waist and arms which I really have a difficult time finding shirts this narrow....too tight in the chest and shoulders. It's not that noticeable but it pulls slightly on the second button across he chest. Love the Oxford fabric and navy color. But from now on I need NYC slim

Why not just call them and ask? They're quite happy to help people over the phone.
