Has anyone looking for slim fitting shirts tried the brooks brothers boys selection? I would never have thought of it but one of the SAs suggested I try on a size 20 (their largest one) and the fit was basically the same as the extra slim fits for like half the price...

I have wondered about doing this myself, as I am short and slim. But I don't frequent Brooks that much, so never really considered looking into how exactly a boys cut differs from adult, if at all, but I suspect it does.

Just saw those the other day. I'm looking for contact data on the site; I'd like to ask them how a boy's 18 or 20 compares to a men's small. They only come in non-iron, sadly, but it's all cotton, so it'll wash out some.

Not bad looking shirts, des nei?

Aloha,

A BB SA once told me that for casual wear, the boys XL is equivalent to the mens S.

BB has extra slim fit shirts. Those should be able to fit you.

so has anyone picked up any of the sports shirts in boys size XL? would be very interested in measurements (i know there's a size chart on the BB site, but I'd be interested in actual pit-to-pit and length measurements).

there's some nice shirt options, and that 3 for $99 (plus corporate discount) is pretty tempting.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
