Maybe they've already stopped puting them on? No clue.. First time I saw it, one out of four shirts ordered had them. Last time, two.

^ I think it's gone...I saw it a good while back, maybe half a year? Nothing on the recent ones (but they are slimmer too) They probably turned over their stock once or twice since the into of the "new" extra slim fit

I got some shirts with the 'new extra slim fit' stickers shipped last week.

post #529 of 568
same here last month ordered 3 shirts, arrived last week, all have the sticker.

On the sidenote, do any CT shirts have back pleats? (center or side). I wish there are more range of motion in the shoulder area, especially when driving

I picked up a pair of the slim corduroy pants a few weeks ago.  They were skin tight.  Not even worth taking pictures in.  Construction seemed good for the price though.  I order the classic fit cords today.  I'll update, once they arrive.

Tried the new “Buckingham” weave with French cuffs. The fabric is very thick and the cuffs are enormous—impossible to wear with a suit. I’m returning it.

My Charles Tyrwhitt classic fit cords arrived.  I ordered them unfinished so I have them done up with binder clips until I get them to the tailor.  I ordered the slim fit and they were skin tight.  I think these fit great.  Good rise, good fit in the thigh and waist.  I definitely going to add a cuff to the pants and I may have them slimmed below the knee a bit.  The leg opening is 8 3/4".  I usually like 7.5".  The have a beautiful paisley lining in the waist band and around the pockets.  The high rise leads to a bit of a crotch tent when sitting.  The zipper should be longer given the high rise of the pants IMO.  What do you guys think?

Good and straight, IMO. Would agree with a slight taper.

I love the look of those shirts and will probably get one or two when the next sale hits (when does the next sale hit?)

I hadn't decided whether to go for button or French cuffs. I wear button cuffs with odd jackets and French cuffs with suits and hadn't decided which way to go. I don't like their double button style, wish they would do mitred cuffs.

In what way are the French cuffs impossible to wear with a suit?

received some extra slim fit shirts today, as i had tried the same cut in TM lewin but unfortunately found them a fraction too tight across the chest (39 collar). these are looser, and i would probably hesitate to call them 'extra slim', but at $55ish a pop i won't complain too much - just wish the sleeves had a button at the mid-forearm.

edit: none of my shirts have the sticker...

I've recently ordered 5 shirts from CT (one to start with, to check fit, quality etc. then 4 to follow), and all turned out excellent. Fit, quality of material. I'm impressed. I'll be using these guys for my dress shirts from now on. Prices can't be beat.

i have to take back my positive comments, at least regarding the 'sky twill' - it's far too thin/sheer.
post #538 of 568
My twill shirts are perfectly fine. Not too thin at all.

I got my CT cords back from the tailor.  Not the best lighting.  I got the classic fit, because the slim fit were too tight in the thigh and seat for me.  I had these slimmed from the knee down to 7.5" at the ankle and a 1.75 cuff.  The material is pretty thick so it may not have been the best option, but I like the way it looks in general.  Sorry the pictures are kind of dark, but you can get an idea of the fit.  Ignore the long back blade.  I wore a sweater today so it wasn't visible.
