    Are those BB shirts made in Malaysia? If so, I am disappointed. You should get some OCBDs from them, they are good.

    OCBD=Oxford Cloth Button Down, BB ones are made in the US and maybe found online and in the stores. Those look like Non-Iron shirts BB offers.
    BB has a factory in NC that makes its OCBDs as well as BBBF shirts.

    lol, yes i know what it stands for, my friend.

    but mine are oxford cloth. they are also non iron, which i happen to like, but they are still the BB supima oxford cloth, button downs. what exactly is the difference between the NC ones and the mylasia ones?

    edit


    i see. not a huge fran of that, sorry :(

    1. only comes in traditional fit, which would be a tent on me. literally. i have some. only slim or extra slim is a cut i like.

    2. i dont that that blue as much. i prefer the lighter, brighter, baby blue of the one i have.

    please dont hate me.

    Dude, they have all types of cuts,just select a different fit. Difference is in the fabric and make (collar roll, etc). These are the original Polo button downs.

    maybe i was doing something wrong. i went to your link, and it did not give me other fit options, ill try again soon.

    you could very well be right about the fabric, but im ok with the roll on the ones i got. final test will be when i actually try it on and see how it looks alone, with a SC, and with a sweater.

    ill lyk. :)
