Got a white herringbone Carlo Franco shirt in the mail, so thought I would post my thoughts on it: Nice slim cut - fits beautifully, like a t-shirt (tried to take pics, camera having issues). Definitely not a tent. One of the slimmest best-fitting RTW's I have worn. No extra material on sides when I tuck it in. Beautiful fabric, very soft, feels great The stitching and buttons are gorgeous. Goes great with a Carlo Franco 7-fold. Shoulders are a bit tighter (narrower?) than the usual RTW. I ordered a 15-33, because I am normally a 15-33. However, I have wider than normal shoulders for my shirt size, and the sleeves as a result are about 1/2 - 3/4" too short. If you have wide shoulders, it is probably best to order a size larger than your normal fit, although I would suggest talking to Chuck about that first. Overall, a great shirt. I own RTW dress shirts by Zegna, Facconable, Ike Behar, Brooks Bro's, and a handful of other makers. I would say the Carlo Franco is of extremely high quality, great fit in the body, looks great, feels great, a notch above the rest in my wardrobe.
