    Retailed for $225.

    This is probably the best oxford cloth button down shirt that I have ever owned. Unfortunately, I wear a 35"- 36" sleeve and have a 16" neck, so this is just a hair too small on me. My loss is your gain.

    • Has the now-elusive long collar that creates a great roll when buttoned, worn with or without a tie
    • 100% cotton fabric is a thick and sturdy oxford cloth in the classic pattern of blue on white stripes
    • Buttons are beautiful genuine mother of pearl
    • Side gussets are sewn in to reinforce side seam at the bottom of the shirt
    • Box pleated at the rear to allow for greater movement
    • Thom Browne's signature locker loop sewn under rear collar
    • Split yoke has impressive pattern matching of stripes
    • Single outer chest pocket, with no button or flap
    • Mitered barrel cuffs with gauntlet button
    • Shirt fronts overlap at bottom of button placket or prevent gaping when tucked in

    Fit is slim and flattering but certainly not skinny. I have an relatively athletic build with a 38" chest and a 32" waist and find this shirt to fit very well when tucked in, without needing to be taken in at the waist or covered by a tailored jacket.

    Tagged a size BB1, which corresponds to a size 15" neck with 34" sleeves. Appears to fit true to tagged size.
