The Definitive Guide to Slim Fit Shirts - Page 159

Stay tuned! 

post #2372 of 2377

Hello all, I'm in the hunt for the perfect shirt as so many else, right now I own mainly a few borrellis and Stenströms(Swedish brand similar to Eton).

 

I'm

34" waist,

40" chest 

almost 6'4" tall

36" sleeves preferably

15.75" neck

 

The problem for me is that I've fallen in love with the quality, fabric and collar of the Borrellis(they are soo amazing)

 

While the Stenströms is good, they fall short whe compared to Borrelli

 

Is there anything similar in quality out there for a real slim tall guy? 2 of the borrellis after a few washes are almost impossible to wear due to the short sleeves... It's so sad. Will I have to go MTM route with any top italian shirt maker to satisfy my needs?

 

Thanks,

Ossian

I also have a few Stenstroems shirts (i think 5 or 6), all of which are "slimline"(the most slim fit line of stenstroems) and sized 39. I'm 5'11", with 37" chest, 29" waist and 33" sleeves. They fit me really well and I am quite satisfied with their quality. 

 

Ossian, I don't have any experience with quality Italian shirts, so I can't help. But in light of your case, I guess I'd better stay away from them lol...

 

BTW I dropped in a "Colli" store the other day in Munich. It's Austrian brand headquartered in Vienna. The cut is quite slim, and the quality is fine considering the listed price is 89 euro for most of their shirts. I took one, and am satisfied after few washes. I would say the quality is on par or a notch below that of stenstroems.

First-hand opinions on the comparative slimness of CT Extra Slim Fit vs. BB ESF? I see measurement charts assembled on 3rd party sites that would list the CTs in this comparison as slimmer, but wondering if anyone could speak more directly to the question. Which brand's ESF in a 16/35 will be slimmer?

In a size 16, the CT ESF is slimmer than the BB. Below 16, I'm not sure if that is still true. They are close though, but if the BB is snug on you, I would probably skip the CT.

I'll second msulinsli's opinion. The CT ESF is slimmer than BB.

Thank you both for confirming that. I appreciate it.
