    I love CT shrits, especially the non-iron variety. Two things I've noticed about their shirts - the collars tend to shrink about half an inch, and the sleeves tend to be about an inch shorter than their US counterparts. So, a 16.5 34 might be the way to go and those are pretty proportional sizes. As a frame of reference, I'm 6'0 and 200 lbs with a 42" chest and 16.5/35 slim fits fit me perfectly. I can wear a size 16 shirt and it will look good but it can become distractingly snug throughout the day especially after a big lunch.

    The collar news is good to hear, but... I'm now reconsidering the extra slim choice. I'm 5'11, 180 lbs with a 31 inch waist (pant size). I wear a 16/35... oh well, I'll find out soon enough. I can always exchange them.

    Thanks for the code!
    Was measured at the Charles Tyrwhitt steps away from my office at their 46th and madison store.....unfortunately a lackluster experience but ordered online and looking forward to trying these out

    FWIW I own a good amount of CT shirts. I'm 6'4 230 with an athletic build and wear a 16/35. I get the slim fit and can get them taken in slightly. I also wear a 44L.

    what the hell? How do I have a thicker neck than you when I'm half a foot shorter and 50 pounds lighter?

    Ditto, though it makes me more confident in the extra slim decision. However, Jeff, you must be build like a giraffe. No offense :D You wear the same shirt size I do... at 5'11" 180...

    Just saw that a groupon became available for Tyrwhitt -- $25 gets you $50, or $50 gets you $100. Not valid on clearance items, must be used on the US site. By the way, how does one come to find out about codes such as XANT?

    I bought it. Thanks! Going to try CT for the first time. I want white French cuff dress shirts. Any suggestions on fabric choice?

    Ive always been happy with their twill non-iron shirts.

    You can try their egyptian cotton black label shirts and see how much better they are than the twill

    I'd be interested to know as well if you dont mind reporting back.
