Are the Black Fleece shirts shrunken like the rest of Thom Browne's line? Can anyone give me shoulder and chest sizing for a BB1 shirt? I'm having trouble finding pertinent threads in B&S.

Ask BB - they list the sizes, too. E.g., a BB2 is a 15.5-34, I think.

Then, ask BB - send them an email. Or go try one one. A 15.5 should be a pretty standard fit. The BF are a little shorter in the body length and may be a little tapered.

I have 6 BBBF BB1 shirts. The average measurements:
Shoulder 17"
Chest 42" - 43"
Sleeve length 33"

In my experience, TB is about one size smaller than BBBF, eg TB 1 = BBBF 0

I have a ton of them and pretty much every one fits a little differently. I don't know if they change by the season or by the maker or what, but it isn't consistent so be careful if you're buying them online and are particular about fit.

I've found they have narrower shoulders than their regular BB counterparts. BB1 is about a 15/33.

I take the same size as Guy From Shanghai. His measurements are the same as mine. +/-
Unfortunately the collar size is a tad too small for me on the BB1 (I think it's a 15), so I've had to move the button or just wear them with sweaters or no tie.

Haven't taken a tape measure to my 4 shirts but that sounds right. I had a couple of TB0's that I sold, they looked like my wife's shirts.

I've heard that also. The BB1 are ok for me however I have one BB2 that fits in the body but the sleeves are long.

I found my BBBF shirts to be a narrow boxy shape. Narrow shoulders, minor suppression.

You all must have T. Rex arms. I'm wearing a black fleece shirt right now and I have to wear the sleeves rolled up because they're too damn short to be comfortable buttoned at the wrist. Then again I must have Australopithecus arms for a BB4.

I must say that the new season BBBF shirts have gone down hill,the most recent ones I purchased are horrible. Button roll is messed up (due to button positioning) and the sleeves are too long.
Vox,I want my shirts back
