    Uniqlo used to have nice oxfords but they suck now.

    Try Rugby on sale?


    Thanks I was just thinking about buying some Uniqlo by phone. So you feel the Rugby ones are better?

    Rugby is slimmer than Uniqlo? I never had Uniqlo but I do have several Rugby shirts and it isn't very slim. It's slim by regular mall brand shirts but not super slim and I though Uniqlo was on BoO-eque slim.

    Uniqlo changed their oxford cloth this year. The new fabric is thinner and rougher. Most people don't like it, especially compared to the old shirts. The cut seems the same. I wouldn't exactly call it slim though.

    Uniqlo is closer to Gap than it is to H&M. and the shoulder size on everything is super tiny. Their shirts have a reverse taper on them that resembles a capital A.

    Wow, I'm even more surprised that Uniqlo isn't as slim as H&M.

    I would advise to stay away from Brooks Brothers though if you have a slimmer body shape...their shirts tend to be rather large around the midsection.
    This is true for all BB shirt fits except the Extra Slim Fit. I am wearing one right now and the fit is legit. For the record, I weigh all of 120 lbs and wear 14.5 / 32. Besides, BB shirts cost more than $40 even when you buy three for $199 plus an additional 25% off...factor in shipping and tax and it comes out to ~$60 per shirt. I would personally go with H&M, their oxfords fit slim and are only ~$20. I have one that i wear under sweaters and it has held up well.

    Lands End or BB via ebay (armyhardhat)

    Ignore the "not slim enough" people, they're missing the point.

    I'd avoid anything with SML sizing.

    Haven't tried this yet, but there are a number of South Korean sellers on eBay that offer slim fit shirts for around $30. Quality is almost guaranteed to be terrible however.

    Yes, you can usually get some on the sale rack for $39. I wouldn't pay more than that, but if you can find your size and color, I think Club Monaco is a good source for oxfords that are slim fit without being skin-tight.

    Land's End and probably size down, thats what I did for the chambray and it is wonderful.

    Or if you can stand a terrible logo

    http://www2.jcpenney.com/jcp/X6.aspx...18|55622|57358

    made by Ralph Lauren for JC Penny. Terrible logo though, ruins the entire shirt, in my most humble opinion.

    Gap on sale is your best option.

    Ive tried both the LE tailored fit and LE Canvas oxfords. I like everything about the Canvas one much better aside from the shorter and very flimsy collar. Otherwise the fit is waaaay slimmer than both the LE tailored fit and most American mall brands. H&M-like fit.

    new uniqlo oxfords are made out of a thinner fabric, but the cut is a big improvement. The sleeves are much slimmer this time around.

    How much slimmer did they make them; is there still enough room to roll them up?

    There is, but it's a tight fit. I wear XS, so obviously as you go up in size this well be less of a problem.

    Def uniqlo. Maybe H&M. I'm not sure if J. Crew oxfords come under $40.
