    I think about 44"-45" just from memory of how mine (16.5/34) fit me.

    At BB's price point I would not expect perfect consistency across all the styles of 16.5/34 or whatever. They are made in big numbers in different places to sell for a small profit at $50 on super sale. There is going to be variance




    Thanks. Seems like they increased the chest width a good amount from 16/34.

    This might be a silly question, but does anybody remember previous father's day sale. Are kids' sizes on sale or just stuff that "dads" can wear. Flipping sweet if a 3/100 shirt deal could improve further.

    LOL

    Did some digging on this and it turns out that only the Supima cotton ones are made in the USA, all others are imported.

    ^it tells you on the site if they're made in the usa all the ocbd are

    picking up the blue and white, too bad the pink is way too prep and other colors garbage

    will probably get a striped supima one as well if it's a 3 for deal

    My two extra-slim fit shirts are excellent. They are not quite as good as the Black Fleece shirts, but pretty damn close. The fit is indeed VERY slim.

    I can confirm this. The Supima cotton shirts fabric is quite a bit thicker/heavier as well.

    Just tried these this afternoon. I found the size 15 to be slimmer than a BB0, very good fit for me. For reference, I wear medium in BoO. These are definitely slimmer than J. Crew offerings. Only thing I have against them is the oversized pocket.

    Hey guys...I'm needing a shirt to fit a 16" neck, 42" chest and 19.5" shoulders. Something that fits similar to a Gitman size large. Should I go with the Brooks slim fit or extra slim fit? Does anyone have p2p and s2s measurements on a size 16 extra slim? Thanks.

    I'm a 15.5" neck and have a 40" chest. I had room in my chest with the ESF so I'd imaging you'll be fine. The regular slim fit was way too baggy in the waist and the forearm area and I don't think my arms are tiny. My waist is 31" and I did end up getting the sides to the waist tailored some. So far OTR these have been the best long sleeved shirts that fits me, but I think from now on I'm going to end up using moderntailor or something. If I'm going to end up getting shirts tailored anyways I may as well get it MTM from the start unless I really like the fabric.

    it looks like the shirts that didn't sell on brooksbrothers.com ended up at ebay's fashion vault
