    They're hardly as finished, and the colors aren't quite as lively, but American Apparel's button-down-collar oxfords (is that redundant?) are at least 1/3 of the price of BoO, and the fit is certainly slim. Both made in the US too!

    I am just going to frantically add the first thing I see to my cart. Hopefully the first item isn't hideous.

    I tried on some American Apparel dress shirts and they were no good. I can't remember what sizes I tried, either XS and S or XXS and XS, and I remember them both being way too big for me in the chest except too small for me in the length of arms or something. They seemed kinda crap. And I like American Apparel.

    Someone mentioned J Crew, and I will vouch for that.

    I just got back from J Crew and picked up one of their oxfords. Looks great. I was surprised that it had a very similar slim fit to BoO, which I tried on at Barney's yesterday. I sized down one from my normal size (to M) at J Crew and sized up (to XL) in BoO.

    The trick with J Crew is to find the oxford cloth shirts with the wider shoulders and sufficient arm length to accomodate sizing down. The shoulders vary by model. Some models have narrow shoulders, so sizing down screws up the look. The ones I am talking about retail for about $60 and are on sale now for $50. The sales staff should be able to help if you ask for the wider shoulder oxfords.

    BoO has better detailing and better/thicker fabric. It is a bit slimmer too and looks more tailored. I would rather have BoO; actually one BoO is headed to me right now, and I will be hoarding more. But for $50 I could not refuse the J Crew.

    I'm glad I'm an XL in BoO then, considering I missed out on the last sale. All I really want is that Black Over-Dyed Oxford, I got everything else I wanted from this last season...

    I too am glad that I am a morbidly obese XL in BoO, as there are scraps still available after people fight over the smaller sizes.

    the reason this doesn't work is because the neck is way too small if you size down, the body fits fine but you cannot button the neck.
