Charles Tyrwhitt - Page 2

post #16 of 430
I love CT shrits, especially the non-iron variety. Two things I've noticed about their shirts - the collars tend to shrink about half an inch, and the sleeves tend to be about an inch shorter than their US counterparts. So, a 16.5 34 might be the way to go and those are pretty proportional sizes. As a frame of reference, I'm 6'0 and 200 lbs with a 42" chest and 16.5/35 slim fits fit me perfectly. I can wear a size 16 shirt and it will look good but it can become distractingly snug throughout the day especially after a big lunch.

I have 10-20 ct shirts and ive found that their tailored (extra slim) shirts fit me quite well. i am 5'7 150lbs with an athletic build, 15/33 left maybe an inch on both side of extra space, it could be taken in a little more but i havent found any BB shirts to fit this well fwiw.

 

The collar news is good to hear, but... I'm now reconsidering the extra slim choice.  I'm 5'11, 180 lbs with a 31 inch waist (pant size).  I wear a 16/35...  oh well, I'll find out soon enough.  I can always exchange them.

Thanks for the feedback.  I heard the same re: the collars, so I ordered .5" larger as you suggest.  I think I may be ok with the extra slim.  I called them and they said that the tapering was in the waist, so the shoulders and chest should fit the same.  Either way, free returns and all.

FWIW I own a good amount of CT shirts. I'm 6'4 230 with an athletic build and wear a 16/35. I get the slim fit and can get them taken in slightly. I also wear a 44L.

what the hell?  How do I have a thicker neck than you when I'm half a foot shorter and 50 pounds lighter?

Ditto, though it makes me more confident in the extra slim decision.  However, Jeff, you must be build like a giraffe. No offense :D  You wear the same shirt size I do... at 5'11" 180...

I also figured he'd have arms longer than mine @ 35"

Just saw that a groupon became available for Tyrwhitt -- $25 gets you $50, or $50 gets you $100.  Not valid on clearance items, must be used on the US site.  By the way, how does one come to find out about codes such as XANT?

Where's the Groupon?

I bought it. Thanks! Going to try CT for the first time. I want white French cuff dress shirts. Any suggestions on fabric choice?

Ive always been happy with their twill non-iron shirts.

You can try their egyptian cotton black label shirts and see how much better they are than the twill

I'd be interested to know as well if you dont mind reporting back.
