    I can't answer your question, but make sure whatever you get is made in England. They fit a lot slimmer and look like they're much better made than the Portuguese or HK ones.

    Second that, HIGHLY!!! Huge difference in quailty, but the costs is the same! Edit: Yes you would be an XS. I'm a 38" and wear a medium, which is nice and fitted. --Wade

    I know Ben Silver sells them, but I don't know if they are the made in England line. They also have a few in their factory outlet, which is linked from their webpage.

    Are they even made in XS? I've never seen one.

    the sizing and quality are definitely varying from Made in England and Made in HK/Portugal. I wear a size S in HK/Portugal for a fitted look, but wear a Med in UK. And in no way should you get those made in Singapore one's you see all over ebay. Bought one to try out and it sucks ass. Loses shape fast, the collars pill quickly, a total trainwreck.

    on the web shop at www.fredperry.com they have one button down shirt in xs but it said it was currently out of stock...also i have seen somebody post they were wearing an xs fred perry once in a waywt thread (maybe haptronic???). i am now considering getting this http://cgi.ebay.com/Dior-homme-Summe...QQcmdZViewItem as it will probably end up being the same price as getting a fred perry shipped from the uk...i am pretty sure it is real but i wish i could ask the dh msn group but i can't join for some reason as i don't have a msn email. on oipolloi.com they have 36" chest and all are uk made ones...maybe that would fit if it shrank a bit?

    Hello,

    I have a 37" chest and wear the XS made in England Fred Perry shirt. It costs £55 in the offical shop in Covent Garden. Its a tight fit, but I've tried a Small and it seemed too long and not so fitted on me. I am 5'11" and pretty slim but not overly skinny. On a 40 degree wash they do shrink a bit, and don't tumble dry them either! They had XS on the website a few weeks ago, but they sold out and haven't reappeared. Small in the HK or Portugal or CDG are like a Medium in the Made in England.

    One other thing, I ordered a Small of their official website ages ago, and it fits perfectly, however, its actually smaller than my XS, so I assume they just sewed the wrong tag in or something.

    Tom

    Hey, just checked OiPolloi and if you wanted that white one in 36" chest I think it'll definately fit you! Its the smallest they go!

    All the ones in the 'limited edition' section of the webstore, although they're not limited edition at all. 32" chest is very skinny, are you sure you measured yourself right? The XS Made In England is very smallest Fred Perry you can get, plus it'll shrink a bit. Tom.
