The Definitive Guide to Slim Fit Shirts - Page 111

Anyone know if it's possible to do a "create your own oxford" at ralphlauren.com and have all embroidery removed? The only two options seem to be to have a pony or a monogram, but it seems like having neither should be easy enough to do. http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/i...ductId=3064569

No, best bet is doing color on color embroidery. You may want to try Brooks Bros create your own shirt service if you want one sans embroidery, or ModernTailor...

what about baggy shirts?

Awesome information, and select tie proportions and colors carefully. someone Compact should use a link shorter and thinner. these bands are almost never available in stores, if you have to hunt them down. the color should be a tone similar to the combination. This also lengthens the torso.

Generally I like to wear skin tight T-shirts, but sometimes when I have to go to professional parties I wear formal shirts. Rarely I wear slim fit shirts, though I've seen many people around me who wear it and has apple cut at the bottom and they look good and slim (even if they are not )

I went in to debenhams the other day, and the fabric was really nice and soft feeling on all their shirts, but they all fit horribly baggy on me.


my chest is 39" and my waist is 32", anyone have similar specs?


At the fairly budget end of the market, both Charles Tyrwhitt and (especially) TM Lewin are a major major improvement on Next. To be honest, I think you'd struggle to get worse than Next. The Lewin slim fit cuts are reasonably trim for OTR, and the fabrics are ok for the price. Both available on line and TM Lewin have quite a few shops.

Just purchased two shirts from Taylor & Stitch, lavender for me and bodega bay plaid for my partner. I'm very happy with the fit and fabric (ordered a 40, which is essentially 1/2 size down for me), and she looks great in hers, in spite of the shirt being a bit large for her (this particular shirt hangs pretty well). These were the ready-to-wear shirts, not m-t-m.

awesome, thanks, just checked out their websites and they look pretty nice. they also both appear to have shops in chester, which is where i was planning on going next weekend to look for some nice shirts, and possibly another suit. i'll definitely check them out.

what i like about the next shirts is the fairly slim fit, and the relatively small, non-spread collar. These all appear to have regular-sized spread collars, but i guess i can be choosey when i have the money for more expensive shirts, haha.

I haven't been able to read through the vast amount of replies in this post but a quick forum search suggest that one shirt brand hasn't been mentioned in this context: the shirts from Swiss manufacturer "eterna".

I have had various eterna shirts in the past (restocking needed :-) ) and have always been pleased with how well they fit - not too tight, not baggy, just right. Also, they are some of the better iron-free shirt I know, which in my book mainly means easily ironable.

T.M. Lewin is good on fabric, but their 'slim fit' is still ridiculously baggy. However, there is a even slimmer 'fully fitted' that is acceptable if still a little on the wide side.

5'11'' 170 lbs chest 41 waist 33 normal/athletic build Z Zegna Drop 8 15.5 nearly perfect fit Z Zegna City (Drop 7) 15.5 very good fit Harvie & Hudson 15.5 best fit in the chest area, overall very good Rene Lezard 15.5 seems the fit depends on the used fabrics.. cotton/linen = good fit... while the pure cotton one is a bit too tight, especially in the p2p area collars anf cuffs are crap Kent Wang 15.75 very good fit, sliiiiightly too large in some areas.. need to tweak a little bit for next purchase Sarar 15.5 got it cheap, quality is okay, very good fit..
