1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Nice pix. Lustrous looking fabrics.

    What is slim, in this context?

    At BB, where in my size the standard chest measure is 50, the 'slim' shirts are 48.

    I prefer 45 or so, my chest being 40.

    So what is chest and waist in a shirt of my approx size, i.e. 40 cm?

    On the 40, Chest and waist are as follows (and I am quoting from my supplier here):

    Chest: 113 CM = 44.85
    Waist: 106 CM = 42.10 Inches

    Please bear in mind that in this particular model the Taper is attained by Darting the shirt.

    Fanatic is too strong a word. I prefer double-cuff, but I have been known to stray.

    I love your shirts, but they're too big for me. Do you ever plan to offer smaller sizes, like size 36 chest, 14.5 collar?

    OK... Again, quoted from the specs given to me by the maker. 16.5 has a yoke of 50.50 (approximately 20 inches across), and a sleeve of 67CM or approximately 26.6 inches. Divide the yoke in half and add them up and you get AROUND 36.6 INCHES. Subtract a drop for the angle of the shoulder vs the yoke across and you should be ok at 36.

    Strangely enough despite my ordering shirts for kids (my main business) and shirts for men, the shirt maker neglected to tell me about a size 37 (14.5) that they make which I found out when they sent me the specs.

    The actual specs for that is 37.5 CM neck and 98 inch chest (approximately 38.75 inch).

    The foolishness was that the kids model ends at a 14YR and the mens begins at a 38 (at least in my order). What is the older boy supposed to wear?

    Oh well... Next order.
