Best fitted casual Oxford button-down shirt?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I have a budget of $225 to spend on a good white OCBD. I purchased a Gitman Vintage recently but I now realize they are extremely baggy and weird-fitting from reading reviews and old topics on this forum.

 

I want to avoid the parachute look.

 

I'm 5'11 with a 37" chest but I usually take 36" as most companies are overly generous with space.

It's below your budget significantly, but Brooks Brother's extra slim fit is on point.

That's a shame as the only casual oxford they are offering right now that I can see is this one with a revolting trim:

And the only design-your-own shirts they do are formal.

Yes, many people don't realize that Brooks Brothers' ESF sports shirts (can't emphasize enough, dress shirts with same label are huge) are quite trim. I actually ordered that popular "splashes of rainbow in white" fabric from them in ESF recently...

I tried some Kent Wang oxfords. Nice distinctive fabric and huge buttons and slim fit (doesn't need tailoring). I'm using them for tucking though; you might want to check the length.

I usually tuck, but I wanted something I could wear both ways. I'll check their website though.

 

I want shirts with that "distressed" look. Which is hard to explain, but a lot of these shirts (like the Brooks Brothers supima cotton one) are a bit too clean cut. I like the kind of material on PRL oxfords, Gitman Vintage and I know Thom Browne has that sort of "distressed" look around the edge of the collars and down the placket if you know what I mean? I guess what I'm saying is "wrinkled".

 

Is Thom Browne the best option to go for? Kamakura seemed okay too. Are there any fit pics of regular people wearing Thom Browne/Kamakura oxfords?

Kamakura is pretty cheap. I'm curious to see fit pics on those as well since I want a pair or two ocbd's...smile.gif....If all else fails, I'm going with MofM or something else Japanese.
