    How do you think Calvin Klein slim fit dress shirts run, say in contrast to Brooks Brothers' slim fit dress shirts? Or compared to other brands? The Macy's where I looked for French cuff shirts sells an array of appealing CK shirts but every one is slim fit.:bounce2:

    I find they run larger than extra-slim, but slightly slimmer than slim fit. The quality is really not very good and the collars are very small. At the same time, for the price, they are better than the other slim fit offerings in the same range.

    I'm wearing it today and notice details I hadn't noticed before, with the packaging. Buttons all on inner strip so not seen when worn. Yes, small collar. So not so traditional, but interesting style, with attractive fabric print.

    I bought one this past weekend, the fabric print is kind of rough on my skin. My particular shirt was made in Honduras, so that could be part of it. I've put it through the wash once and the threading is already coming loose in some places. It fits nicely and I actually like the thinner collar for the thinner lapel suits that are coming out these days, but it's simply not going to last more than a couple of weeks if you wear it every week or two.
