    Flyswatter - you're right. Charles Tyrwhitt have not changed the sizes of their shirts, just the way they present the measurements (I had this confirmed by a Charles Tyrwhitt sales rep on email). Instead of giving the actual shirt measurements they now give a "to fit chest" measurement.

    You can find the old chest measurements at the link below towards the bottom of the page. The table shows that for the chest measurements the Classic Fit is larger than the Slim Fit which is larger than Extra Slim Fit.

    I've never paid more than $25 a shirt, shipping included. I'll never pay more than that as they always seem to have sales. Personal best was $16.95 shipped using their own $20 off code.

    Also:
    Something strange is going on with their website for US customers right now.

    http://www.ctshirts.com/3CSBB1

    This isn't a referral link, but their own promo link for their 4 for $199 special.

    If you add four shirts to the basket, a pop-up will appear for another shirt for 25 Pounds (yes, Pounds in US).
    It will then say you get a free tie (choose one from six)
    The total cost for five shirts and one tie shipped to your door is $119 USD

    I don't really get that offer. I put in 4 shirts, got the offer for the 5th. nothing about ties, and certainly not at $119

    I edited the link. Just ran through it again, and it still works.

    Thanks for posting the link. The discount didn't work until I put the fifth shirt in the basket. Once I did, they went down to $20 each

    No problem, I figured at least a few people here might find it useful.

    I don't think it's a "discount" as much as it is a website glitch. I think it's charging the number for GBP but in USD. I wonder how long it will take them to correct it. I just placed another order two minutes ago and it still works. I figure for $20, I can gift these out to friends.

    Well dammit... it works for me. And I just placed an order 2 days ago for 4 shirts at $199 plus a free tie. Question is should I bother canceling that order only to place an order again for 5 shirts at $20 each using the link above...

    I would.

    I don't consider their shirts the best in the world, but what they do have is outstanding customer service. And that makes me continue to buy from them.

    I would go ahead and order the five before this glitch (if it is a glitch) gets fixed. You can call and cancel your previous order if it hasn't yet shipped (if it was two days ago maybe it hasn't) or just have them ship both orders to you. All of their orders come with a free shipping label for a return, so you can just slap the new sticker on the box and send it back, no questions asked.

    ^I used Safari on my iPhone. I followed the updated/corrected link from the phone's browser. I did exactly this:
    added 4 shirts (have to be 4 for 199, don't do any 2 for 160 or whatever)
    Go to shopping cart
    It let me pick a tie
    I added one more shirt.
    Back in my cart, each shirt was $20 and the tie was free.
