heres the thread, sans chart.

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

He wrote that back in 04', since then sizes have unfortunately gotten bigger, I wonder how up-to-date the information really is.

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..
Cool stuff - maybe this would be a better link though:

The one you posted plays loud music (annoying) and doesn't show much of the range.

I don't know if this still applies and I don't even recommend this option myself, but years ago I had some Prada shirts that fit pretty slim right off the rack. And I was pretty skinny at the time.

Any of the designer brands make slim shirts. This is especially true once you get at the more esoteric brands such as Dries van Noten or Undercover.

I'm a tad over 6' and have fairly full shoulders with 33 inch waist. I wear 38R in most OTR suits and size 32 trousers. that should give you some idea.

I find that Eredi Pisano makes nice slim fitting shirts. Sometimes they are pre-darted. If they still don't fit they will take it in some more for you. However, unless you're living in NYC or Italy, you probably won't be able to find them. Plus they're not cheap.

Sounds fairly slim. Hopefully the Bagutta ones that Yoox carries are top of the line and fit well.

I just ordered some land's end shirts that are "tailored", not incredibly slim, but much better than the otr items i would get at most stores.

i am thinking that the shirts might not be long enough, should the bottom button with the horizontal hole with different colored stiching be exposed?

Thanks

+1 on the RL custom fit comment. I find them to be ok for wearing casually untucked. Once tucked they do blouse quite a bit in the back.

I find EP not superslim, but certainly slimmer than the US standards.

They are less expensive when I sell them. I have one at auction this week. Click the link below to see it.

I found Charles Tyrwhitt slim fit shirts to fit well until this year (even then when washed repeatedly the collar became too tight). This year, the company increased the chest measurement by 2 inches!

Now I must go half a size up for the collar, which makes the chest measurement greater by 3-4 inches!

I may just have to go MTM since the RTW plus alteration costs are not any less expensive.

It appears no one has mentioned Zara, so let me do so. Some of the fabrics are quite nice, though the offerings vary significantly from store to store (the Fifth Ave. store always seems to have the best looking stuff), and construction is decent; I especially like the way their spread collars look with a nice windsor knot. And of course, they're cut quite slim (especially around the armhole and sleeves), enough that I'll keep mine around even though I'm starting to get into MTM options. All Zara shirts retail for $59 dollars and don't seem to go on sale at all that I've seen, though eBay turns up a few now and then for much less.

Zaras are not slim by European standards. I would rate them to be slightly more generous than RL custom fit shirts. Also Zara shirts come in two grades, the standard and a higher end one with pearl buttons. Price difference about 30% I think.
post #59 of 2377
The ones I have feature MOP buttons (I think), so I guess they are the higher end shirts. The cheaper shirts may be from their casualwear section, which I never browse. Interesting your comment about European standards. Are we Americans really that grossly overweight compared to the rest of the world?

Polo custom, Lacoste Retro, Brooks Slim, in order from best to worst. Amongst the mall brands these run the best for me.

BTW - who is tucking in their polo shirts?
