I'm curious what your neck size is. I am 5'9", 150 lbs, 40 chest, 32 waist, 16 neck. If you say a 36" chest is a good fit I don't see how I can fit into one of these shirts. I've tried on Brooks Brothers ESF shirts in store (16/33) and it was quite baggy at the waist. The chest was decent, but still a little big.

 

I usually wear 15.5/33. By " chest fit me perfectly" -- I mean not too baggy and not too tight; just enough room for my upper body and arms to move around.

Will a CT extreme collar shirt give me this look

 

post #138 of 444

Yes, I do have a wider neck.  I ordered the 16.5/35 extra slim fit and like I said everything looks great, I just get a little tug on the upper back sometimes that I've never gotten with other slim shirts.  Just wondering if that was normal with CT shirts.

The CT 'cutaway collars' will give you the same look as above. If you buy the 'classic collars' they will be too pointed for your liking.

I own the CT spread collar and I dont think they are that white. Im wondering if the "extreme" spread will be the better option?

Their extreme cutaway is close to 180 degrees. If you like that look, it's worth picking up one.

Complaining that no OTR shirt has a 7 drop or a 26" waist is equivalent to mental masturbation.

 

If you label a shirt as being extra slim, I expect more than a 2-3" drop, which is what CT ESF shirts are.

 

In my mind

 

Regular fit = 0-1 inch drop

Slim fit = 2-3 inch drop

Extra slim fit = 4-6 inch drop

 

Not to mention the fact that the 15 neck shirts have a 38 inch waist (measured 20cm below armhole). Usually I like my shirts to have 3-4 inches of "room". That would mean I would need a 34" waist. And this is their second smallest size in their slimmest fit.

Haha, my thoughts exactly. Anyone who says CT ESF isn't slim enough must be thinner than a starving Ethiopian, or has fallen too hard for fashunz and wants dat painted-on look...

Let me guess, you guys want your shirts to fit like this:



Get real! That looks terrible and is totally unrealistic anyway.

A couple relevant posts from my favorite men's style blog, that last one posted just today:

Significant drop is a sign of good fitness.


I laughed when reading some of those blog posts about trying on a shirt, and sitting down.


If your shirt buttons become strained when you sit down, maybe you should start eatting salads instead of cheeseburgers, eh???

So I think I figured out my issue. The back seam length is actually longer than my current shirts. The binding issue is that the sleeve joint is only 10.5" whereas my other dress shirts are 11". That extra half inch means the world to my arm movement. Everything else fits fine, it just binds my arms. Going to half to return these unfortunately.  Des anyone know how that will work since I used a groupon for $100 of the $200? Will I get $100 in cash and a $100 credit?

PSA

Am I late to the party? Living Social currently has a $25 for $50 worth of credit or $50 for $100 worth of credit.

There is also a $5 off coupon floating around, so effectively $20 for $50 or $45 for $100.
Shipping is pretty much a flat rate, so it isnt advantageous to sign up for the smaller deals.
post #148 of 444

They do have the site configured so that you can't use the living social deal for the 39.50 shirts.

 

However, they do allow the 4 for 200 deal from the living social money, so you can do 4 for 100 bucks basically (I think), which makes it 25 a shirt probably with more selection.


I wish I had that CT shirt I ordered in hand so I could decide if I love it (and should jump on this) or not....

I don't think you can use two of the LS deals in the same transaction.

So basically its 4 for 150, no tie, vs 4 for 160, with a tie.
post #150 of 444

Yep you right

 

Limit 1 per transaction

 

Not as appealing...
