I have lost a lot of weight in the past year (not for a good reason), so none of my clothes fit properly. So I ordered two new shirts, one from CT (from whom I've ordered before) and one from Hawes and Curtis. I wanted two different manufacturers to compare fit. I also didn't want to spend a lot, in case they didn't fit. Well, they both arrived this week, and they both fit identically; plus they fit well. I'm happy. What's the problem? Well, I actually thought CT had sent me a Slim Fit instead of a Classic Fit. I've seen numerous posts about how "tent-like" the Classic Fits are, and when I was buying larger sizes, I kind of thought that a little too, but then I needed the room. I really debated this size thing, and one crucial consideration was the longer tails on the Classic Fits. One of my main complaints is shirts that are too short in the body (I'm 6'1"). I want those shirt tails staying IN! If I'd have ordered Slim Fit they'd have been useless to me. I was very surprised how trim the Classic Fit was, when I'd seen so much to the contrary. Now I'm not svelte, but at 164 lbs., I ain't huge either.
Any thoughts? Anybody have any thoughts about what I'm gonna find with other brands?
