    correction, 21 inches pit to pit.

    Do you happen to have a measurement of how much it tapers on the torso?

    I'd really like to get in on the sale you're talking about, but can't find it. Is this in store?

    Three slim fit 16/34 shirts I ordered from BB just arrived in the mail and the quality is great, but they're definitely not the 'slim fit' I was looking for. Guess I'll have to drop by one of their stores for a quick return and/or exchange. I'm 5'10" 165lbs and run a 16/34 slim in most fits, but after trying these BB shirts on and looking at their website again I think a 15.5/34 extra slim would be a much better bet. Does this sound right?

    ^^ I am 6 ft 155lbs and a 15/34 fits me and my baboon arms. Unless you have extra long arms, maybe 15.5/33 would be better.

    Are you overestimating the length of your arms? I am 5'11'', and 15.5 34 (actually should be 34.5). I don't think my arms are exceptionally long. Maybe they are.

    FWIW I am 6'2" and I am a 15.5/36.

    Maybe I am overestimating, but my alterations tailor and shirtmaker have both commented on my arm length - maybe it's just in comparison to my relatively short torso.

    I stopped by after work to see how the extra slim shirts fit. Overall i liked the fit and ended up buying 4 shirts. I do wish the length of the shirts were a bit longer. as a reference i'm 5'10" about 174 pounds and wear a 16 x33.

    Yeah but don't all of those have logos on them?

    I don't recall seeing any of the staple solid button down extra slim fits on sale
