I have many uniqlo OCBD, they are great, but Im looking for non oxford cloth.

Uniqlo would be great for this if their shirts were spread collar instead of point

Dunno if it's been covered but -- Paul Frederick. You can get the $20 coupons in a lot of different magazines. I wear these all the time and have never had a reason not to like them.

The problem I keep seeing on various websites is that very few "tall" sizes are available slim, and very few slim shirts are available in a tall size. I wear a 44 XL jacket and they generally fit perfect off the rack (maybe a tiny bit of bunching in the center back just between the collar and shoulder blades that I have tightened up); my shirt size is 17.5" x 37". The 36" are uncomfortably short. I have fewer and fewer fitted shirts in the closet anymore and it's getting worrisome, because the standard ones make a suit jacket look like crap. There's jack shit for decent, reasonable clothing stores near me, so I'd love links to reliable on-line joints if there are any other tall guys who have had luck here. Tyrwhitt, Paul Fredrick, a few other department stores, none of them have slim in "tall" sizes. Real frustrating.

How is the fit and quality of the Nordstrom brand "tailored fit" shirts that they sell at their Nordstrom Rack stores? Are they darted? They're pretty affordable, so I figure if they're high quality (they're 100% cotton) and slim fit I may give them a try, and if they're not darted, I can always get them darted to make them even less blousey.

Mine was pretty big, I had it taken in quite a bit. The buttons and cloth were excellent though. They were John W. Nordstrom brand though.

For those with an athletic build, what is your shirt of choice?

I'm a:
43" chest
32" waist
33-34 sleeve
~15.5-16 in collar

Thanks all.

Has anyone tired the very-slim fit from brooks brothers? I've been told it is actually too thin? Any word on this?

Charvet shirts are very slim in their fit. I have broader shoulders and their shirts seem to be tailored to fit me.

I'm 6'1'', and wear a 38R suit.

There are plenty of threads on this, but the general consensus seems to be that they are a pretty good option for a lot of people on here.

Their John Francomb "fully fitted" shirts are better. They're a little more expensive, but slimmer.

Like a BB ESF?

I am a big and tall guy so slim fit shirts don't fit me well. I have to buy them from a tailor but that gets costly. I have tried a few online tailors and I found one with good prices and the shirts are pretty well made. It's called Tailor Threads. http://www.tailorthreads.com. Check it out.

Avoid.

I made the mistake of buying one a few months back. Waist was okay, but the shoulders and chest were way too wide. Wasn't even worth a trip to the tailor.

Spend $10 more and get a BB ESF from their online clearance section.

If he has access to a store where he can try them on I think it's worth a shot. My JWN has better cloth and buttons then my BB.

Thanks. Are the ESF shirts from BB slimmer around the waist then the Nordstrom shirts, too? The blousey back is my biggest problem, and it always seems to happen. I need a 16.5 neck (if I'm going to wear it comfortably with a tie) but I've got a 33 waist (wear size 32 or 33 pants) and a ~42 inch chest.
