    Looks like bb is having a semi-annual sale where you can cop 3 of these for 159, if I want to be a dick and save more can I stack any more savings on top of this?

    I've gotten 7 BB slim fit shirt over the course of spring and early summer. I got them on sale, 3 for $120. I am 5'10 160lbs. I wear 15.5 and 33L. I have had every single of those shirts taken in at the arm and sides. They aren't like the tents with the traditional fit. They look reasonable off the rack but tailoring them differentiates me from the drone office worker.

    Unfortunately not available in the store - and I suspect you may not get the same deal - but the EXTRA slim fit shirts would likely do you better and possibly save you money in tailoring costs. The extra slims may not be slim enough for some, but are notably slimmer than the slim fits.

    Look back a few pages dude, there are several pictures posted in this thread. The only people that need to get these tailored are super skinny dudes, and even in their case a majority probably don't need to do much to them. Someone with a build similar to yours probably wouldn't need to have the shirts tailored at all. And the dude commenting a few comments up was saying he had to tailor the slim fits, not the extra slim fits.

    i just wanted to mention that i measured the neck on my "15.5" and it's actually 16. no wonder this neck felt too big. is this common on these?

    I think they do run big. Normally, a 15.5 neck is quite snug on me. With the BB ESF shirt I tried on at the store, I had a good .5-1" of extra space. Not sure how much they shrink.

    Anyone know where I can get the chest measurements for the Extra-Slim dress shirts?

    Here are the numbers for a size 16 collar shirt:

    In response to your inquiry regarding our merchandise, please be advised that the following are the measurements you requested for the extra slim fit shirt.

    size 16
    waist: 41 1/2"
    chest: 43 3/4"

    Unfortunately they forgot to include the shoulder measurement.

    The regular slim fit would probably suit you.

    Is there a difference in how slim a OCBD is and the dress shirt in thier Extra Slim fit line? I think I may give the OCBD a go.

    I normally wear size S in BoO, 5'9 150.

    I haven't measured - and there may be some slight variation in cut - but my recently purchased OCBD and "normal" collar extra slims seem to fit the same.

    Here's a tip. Eat more and stop Wearing girl sizes.

    harhar, the regular BB sizes are for people who take your advice. I would never want to be that fat.
