    IMO Gitman doesn't look that good tucked in. It billows in the back . It doesn't have the taper/darts in the back like TB and BoO do

    Oh I wasn't sure if they're tuckable. I've never really tried any on, but I'm 5'11" so I'm no giant. Anyone doing sales on those right now?

    Is it actually slim tho? I've heard the cut isn't really that great (tight in the shoulders, looser in the body)

    I hadn't noticed this, but maybe you're right. I'd like to try TB but I haven't gotten around to it, no place to try them on around here anyway.

    This might work for you

    It's slim (darted), OCBD, and they have every size in stock (except small... hopefully you're not a small)

    I find it slim enough for me and not tight in the chest at all. If you need it slimmer, you can bring it to the tailor and have the box pleat closed for $3. It's worth a shot and their return policy is decent.

    If you size right, TB is an amazing cut for a dress shirt. Quality is phenomenal. I'd just buy one of his, but it seems like everyone everywhere is sold out.


    Looks too short to be tucked, but that's a really nice cut

    I bought my TB oxford at the Barney's Co-Op in South Beach (last spring). They had a bunch in stock at the time, you might be able to call them and see if they still do. They had at least one of every size in each (basic) color, so it might not be a bad idea to call and check.

    Yea, I think I'll call Barney's right now and have them track one down for me, hopefully it'll be on sale. Does it matter which one I call?

    I don't know, probably better answered by others. I don't know if they have a shared inventory or not...

    I can never find an ocbd that fits properly off the rack; even extra slim or extreme slim models :( if the waist is slim enough to tuck without flaring at the back/sides, then the shoulders/chest are always too tight.

    But yeah, it's not too expensive to get shirts tailored in or darted at the waist, so just go with something that fits you in the shoulders/chest

    You can call any Barneys and they should be able to look up inventory in any stores in the US if the SA is willing to do it. Some are just lazy though.

    Spending some time visiting family in LA/OC. Brother took me around a bunch of stores (mostly hypebeast stuff 'cause that's his steeze, but it was still fun to look around and see what's what); stopped by Union and I finally got to see some Junya/Vivism stuff in person.

    I also ran into/talked to Tyler the Creator in one of the stores near the OFWGKTA pop up shop on Fairfax. He seemed like a normal kid (he's doing a tv show for us so we talked about that a little bit).
