The Definitive Guide to Slim Fit Shirts - Page 3

post #31 of 2386
The Borrellis made for the boutique/European market are pretty slim, in my experience.

Barba works very well for me.
Finamore the shoulders are too narrow for me (as others have mentioned).
Borrelli if I size down

Oddly enough, I actually have a cheap Gap "custom fit" shirt that fits very well.

Now that you mention it, I have a Gap shirt I wear under sweaters because it's so slim.

I'm not sure if this holds true for the US market, but Bagutta shirts are cut very slim. they fit me like MTM shirts and have the perfect length sleeves (i.e. not too short) and just a tad shorter overall than I would have preferred. But during sales, I would pick them up without hesitation.

I should also mention Bagutta, like most other brands come in a variety of different grades. the lable that contains the house crest is the highest line and has the best quality. I do find their cut to be consistently slim however.

For a different take on BD's, I have mentioned these shirts on another forum, but I have been given the impression that their website may put people off... which is a shame as I think they produce an excellent 'modern' take on the button down shirt.

I love the cut/shape of the collar and, for an English produced shirt, has a loverly roll and has, in my opinion, the all important third button! The few I have bought have fitted me perfectly what with the tapered body and slim cut sleeves. Made with quality Italian cloth. They also provide RTW, MTM and a bespoke service..

I have excepted all my otr shirts will have to be tailored on the sides, some even in the arms. I find myself buying otr shirts based on the collar type and heigth. Everytime I find a slim cut that fits my body, the shoulders do not fit or the collar is not good for me.

Yoox carries alot of bagutta shirts. What are your measurements or body shape may I ask, because fitting like MTM could be fitting like ( ) or | | ya know.

Whoever keeps mentioning RL Custom Fit or BB Slim Fit is straight out lieing or they themselves are not 'slim'. They fit me a circus tents. For me, 37" chest, 6'1", 160lbs the best I've found have been H&M, Trovata, Club Monaco Slim Cut, and just plain MTM.

I agree 100%, I just bought a linen RL Polo shirt and it definitely has to be taken in for it to fit me well.

Seriously haha, just because it says slim doesn't mean it means slim. That's why I wish people would post some measurements.

BjornH once did a comparative study with a graph on fits of many RTW shirts.

heres the thread, sans chart.

I have sent a PM to BjornH, maybe he still has it.
