    To be honest, that never really entered my mind. There must be a few decent ones here in SoCal, if the BB doesn't work then I might just look around. Then again, I am just not too thrilled about spending more than $100 for a shirt.
    if you're in socal, you can get shirts made by freddy vandecasteele up in studio city. he's my last resort, if i can't find anything in the last few decent shops in town. 14'' neck is no fun. [​IMG]

    FYI: New poplin styles now available. Just ordered 3 of the white poplin shirt, hoping it solves all of my dress shirt needs...

    Good idea buying three. I might do the same thing.
    If they fit you won't need any white dress shirts for years.

    I was going to try on the extra slim fit blue OCBD the other day but I didn't have time. They were tagged S, M, L, etc. and not by neck/sleeve measurements. If the fit is good I am going to buy 2 of the blue OCBDs and wear the heck out of them. Ideally I'd have 7 blue OCBDs and get them monogrammed MON, TUE, WED, and so on and be set for life on shirts.

    LOL why not? Guy has a Ralph Lauren polo tattoo on his chest. It'd be hilarious.

    The white dress shirt is tempting but I haven't even received the white oxford I ordered toward the end of December.

    That's pretty terrible. I was thinking about throwing in a white OCBD, but saw that pretty much everything except the white shirt was out of stock. I am still trying to figure out my sizing in these shirts and don't have the patience to wait for 2-4 weeks to receive a shirt.

    Yeah my order kept getting pushed back. It is suppose to ship this week but I wouldn't be surprised if I get an e-mail saying it will be pushed back once again. I got the other two shirts I ordered on time though, I think they sold too much of the white oxfords.

    Still contemplating the white dress shirt though but might just wait for the WVG but with the oxford coming I am not sure I would need another button down.

    Several new point collar styles just popped up. They are so tempting. Does anyone know if BB has plans to make a non-iron extra-slim line? I'm not sure if I should hold out for the non-iron ones b/c I suck at ironing.

    It looks like they are starting to add the point collars. By the way, what do you think of the button downs? I don't wear BB for casual wear, and find it odd that their extra slim dress shirts have been button downs so far (until recently) since I'm not a fan of the tie + button-down look.

    You shouldn't find it odd. It's classic BB, they've always done it that way

    To you RLBL wearers, how does the fit compare to their dress shirts? How about Pink slim fits or H&M slim?
