Not sure if anyone else noticed or posted this, but I just got an email about this offer.

Their dress shirts (including extra slim fit!) are 2 for $99 right now. Great deal, considering I love these shirts. Also, when did they release the non-iron extra slim fit ones??? I was surprised when I saw some on their website.

I may have to grab two. Their non iron really does not need an iron and for that I like having on in light blue (wear with just about anything) when needed.

I am not sure on size though, does anyone have measurements of the slim fit? I wear a 16neck and I 40r-42 jacket.

Thanks for the heads up. The extra-slim shirts fit me really well. I had to tailor (arms and sides) every single one of their "slim" shirts for up to $40 a pop. However, with the extra-slim, it fits me off the rack. I'll definitely pick up two extra-slim shirts tomorrow on my way home from work.

Non-iron extra slim????
That's what I said! I didn't know they existed, guess it must be new. Last purchase I made at BB a month ago, the rep told me they didn't carry non-iron extra-slims... I stocked up also!

How big are the shoulders on the extra slims? Do they run a lot smaller? I have a thick neck, broad shoulders, and am very slim so it's very difficult to find shirts that even come close to fitting OTR.

I'm a pretty average-built guy and extra-slim BB shirts were too small in the shoulders. Had to give them to my father. Proceed with caution.

From my closet, shoulder-to-shoulder across the back is 16.5" on a 15/33. Based on their website, it looks like the extra slims are taken in mainly at the chest and the waist (they don't mention the shoulder), with higher arm holes:

To give you an idea, I have an athletic, slender build (swimmer and runner, not a real heavy lifter) and the extra slims are still slightly blousy on me.

Same here. Shoulders were too tight, while the waist area was too blousy. I figured the ESF was for skinny people and not in-shape people with low BMI.

When people say they stock up, how many are they buying? I just bought 2 non-irons (solid white/solid blue OCBD) and I thought I was good. Seems I've got some knowledge to process.
