    "Not close" is a bit misleading. For a dress shirt, these are quite slim. If you look at my post a few pages back, the 16/33 has a 21.5 inch chest, that is a good 3-4 inches slimmer than any other traditionally cut shirt. The arm-holes are respectably high as well.

    I don't know anyone over 5'7 who could wear a BoO shirt as a dress shirt, they are simply too cropped.

    I am 5'5" 145 lbs. 36 chest and the extra slim fit 15/32 seemed to fit me well for off-the-rack. I am waiting for their dress shirt version that won't have the logo.

    Good to know similar size as you will have to look into this.

    Gave it a shot and ordered a 3 14.5x32 of the oxfords, it's 3 for $159 so I figure it's not bad of a deal. Unfortunately, it is all on back order until 01/18 so I'd have to wait 3-4 weeks to get it.

    Yeah the solid oxfords look good, I could do without the pockets though.

    I wish I didn't have to buy 3 to get the reduced price. [​IMG]

    These probably aren't sold in the "346" stores are they?

    Same here but I figure if it fits great then it is a great buy either way and will be a great addition to my closet and if it doesn't fit well, I can just return all of them without a problem. Also applied and used the Brooks card so I did get an extra 15% off so it should come down to about $45 per shirt, which isn't bad at all, especially if it will fit great.

    To think that the extra slim fit measures a full 8" less in the chest than a traditional fit in the same size; if they are still too big there is no hope for BB.

    I would imagine not unless, of course, they simply received a random return piece here and there.
