    Quick question: do you have shirts that are non-iron? I looked around your website but didn't see anything so indicating, but thought I'd ask.

    I like BB non-iron shirts .. look fresh all day..

    Thanks!

    Visited the store today and picked up 3 shirts including this one.

    I think it is a bit small. I tried on the 15 1/2 in store and it fit well. This is also a 15 1/2 slim and it doesn't feel the same in terms of fit.

    Rick mentioned the madras shrunk in production quite a bit so fit smaller than the other shirts in the same sizes. Exchange for the 16 slim and I bet you will be ok, they should fit closer to the other 15 1/2 slims you picked up.

    Thanks Burzan. Unfortunately Rick failed to mention this to me when I was trying on the 15 1/2. I had 3 madras shirts pulled and no mention of any sizing discrepancy between the shirt I tried on (flannel) and the madras.

    It is not an easy store to visit since it is West of the city so me going back and returning it is a bit of a PITA. I wish I would have known about this at the time of purchase @SPIER & MACKAY

    Totally slip of my mind today. The store was a zoo for the most part of the day. I don't even recall if I dealt with you and pulled the madras for you. PM and can help with you with an exchange.

    Sleeves look way short.

    How tall are you? I was just going to order a madras in a 15.5, however maybe at 6'2" I'd be in the same boat with the sleeve length...

    @spex

    I am 6'1. The sleeve issue is exacerbated by the bunching at the elbows. They are probably 1/2 inch short at full extension.

    These are the 34" Contemp Navy Pin trousers, should I go up a size? Everything fits fine, waist is good, just some outlining. If I size up I'll have to take in the waistband.

    Those look awfully slim to me. You must have huge legs/glutes to make the contemporary fit look that slim. I'd size up.

    That looks terrible. Do you have sloping shoulders? Sizing down might not give a good fit, but I'd definitely not keep that.

    No Non-Iron at the moment. We stay away from chemically treated or poly/nylon blended cloth. All our shirts are 100% Long Staple variants of Egyptian Cotton.
