    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.

    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...:)....If all else fails, I'm going with MofM or something else Japanese.
