The Definitive Guide to Slim Fit Shirts - Page 148

post #2206 of 2390

I finally tried out my TM Lewin slim fit shirt. Based on the chest measurements, I thought it would be way too big in the chest, but it seems OK. I'm not sure if they are taking the measurement from the same place everyone else is. However, the shoulders appeared a little to wide - which is strange for me, as I am a standard size 42, and most 16" shirts fit just right in the shoulders. CT tailored fit 16.5" also fit me fine in the shoulders.

They have dropped the Tailored fit for an "extra slim fit", which is entirely different - even the collar seems different. This is a huge pity as the CT formal shirts fit me pretty much perfectly smile.gif

According to the salespeople I have spoken to, Extra Slim Fit is just a rename of Tailored fit. Both have previously been offered in a variety of collar styles. I know I have a few semi-spread tailored fit as well as, I believe, a cutaway. I admit though that I do not own any of the shirts with the Extra Slim Fit label. According to their sizing guide (http://www.ctshirts.com/Formal-shirts-sizing-guide?cnt=sizing-guides) the measurements are the same. Do you have a different experience?

I've been looking for OTR slim/superslim fitting dress/casual shirts that require minimal tailoring and the best fitting OTR shirts that I've found are from Zara.  However, they cost $59.99 here in Canada and at that price they're simply not worth it for the quality that you get.  
My measurements are 14.5in neck, 35inch chest, 28inch waist, and i stand about 5'8... At this point I feel like I don't have much of a choice... does anyone have any other suggestions off the top of their head or am I destined to go the MTM route?

Try H&M, probably a size Small. I am 5'10" with a 38" chest and 30" waist and the M is practically perfect. Problem is the quality is not that great but they make good beater shirts for a bar/club, only cost $15 if I remember correctly.

What are the best OTR fitting oxford cloth button downs? 5' 11" 185 consider myself built since I play football and wrestle

Not trying to spend much since I'm 17

Been thinking Uniqlo and getting them tailored if I need to

The uniqlo's fit me funny. A lot of extra cloth in the back, looks weird to be honest. Getting mine tailored to fit better, if I can find a rather cheap one. If not I'll just keep using them under sweaters. I'm 6' 3" 207 - so rather built myself.

Damn, I'm looking for no bunching in the back

Guess I'll just get some on sale like at jcrew or something and get them tailored

I wear mine under sweaters too but it's not really cold here

OTR shirts are always welcome in my closet, there is the convenience factor of getting them at your nearest retail store. But slim fitting shirts can be tricky to find and most that I have tried on are labeled "slim fit" but somehow the shoulders don't fit well or the sleeves are too long.
