After looking at the numerous CT threads I couldn't find an answer to my question - can anybody comment on the length of their slim fit shirts? I wear a 16.5 / 35 shirt and find that most slim fits are too short. I don't want to buy regular fitting shirts because I feel like I'm wearing a flag. Also, do their button cuff shirts have one or two buttons?

I disagree. I'm 6'3 wear a 16/35 and the sides of my CT shirts come out quite often. I find them to be about 1-2" too short in the sides.

I am 6'1 with a long torso (only wear 30" inseam pants), and i find the slim fit shirts long enough. The bottom button sits just about my belt, so I wish they would put an extra button below that. They are now my go-to shirt as I really like them.

I am 6'5" and wear a 16/36 - they're definitely a little too short, and shorter than the same size in say, TM Lewin.

I used to wear CT a lot, I'm 6'4" and would wear a 16/36 as well. One thing I noticed is that their french cuff shirts seemed a little longer in the sleeves than their regular button cuff counterparts. I never had a problem with the shirt length being too short, but even their slim fit was way too baggy for me and the shirts fit like tents.

well, at 5'6-7 I can tell you they're a mile too long on me. Like way way too long. But that probably doesn't help you much.

My CT shirts (16,5 slim) are perfect in length. In fact, I wouldn't mind if they were an inch or two shorter. I'm 5'11.

Taking a tape measure to a CT 16.5/33 slim I just received, it's 33" from back of collar to hem, and the hemline rises about 2" at the sides. This is a shirt that's never been washed, though.
