    Yeah I’m hoping fall long sleeve polos happen. A mid brown shade is on my wish list outside of the staples.

    Dark Blue = Brooks Brothers Blue = Darker than the last batch of Light Blue Brushed Oxfords.

    Want this BAD. I see decent LS polos online and think to myself "hold off Spier will hopefully have some soon!"

    Oh right, I thought you meant a dark blue uni stripe. The brooks brothers blue will be called "medium blue", at least thats what it's called in the MTM section.

    Pretty much how I look at every possible purchase these days.

    Happy to report that with the introduction of extra slim fit, I think I've found my holy grail of OTR shirts :bigstar: Thanks Rick & Co. I hope they don't shrink materially after washing though.

    Glad to hear folks are happy with the slim/extra slim fit shirts.... I'm on the other end of the spectrum, though. Even the contemporary fit shirts will be too small for me unfortunately. Rick, any chance you could do an "athletic fit" or something, with more room in the chest and shoulders? A contemporary size 16.5 shirt has a 46.5 chest measurement; that's still pretty darn slim. Anyone who lifts regularly will likely find these too slim.

    Just throwing this out there for comparison: Lands' End tailored fit dress shirts in size 16.5 have a 49.5" chest. That's their tailored fit, and it's a full 3 inches larger in the chest than S&M's most relaxed fit. At least, I guess it's supposed to be "relaxed"? I still don't quite understand what "contemporary" means in the context of clothing fit, I just know it's not as slim as slim or extra slim. Ha.

    Now that we have proper sleeve lengths, I was really looking forward to a new shirt wardrobe. Since, as expected, S&M shirts are pretty spot on in terms of collars, fabrics, buttons, price point, etc. Except for me, and I suspect many others, the most important aspect makes S&M shirts a no go: fit. :confused2:

    I missed this talk about extra slim fit. How the hell are you guys even fitting in these things? Do you have girly man bodies? I wear slim fit already and it's at the max.

    Eh? no need to start flinging labels about other folks' body types. Some people are skinny. Me? Not so much.

    Well, how do you not fit in slim shirts? Do you guys have thin girly necks? /s

    Recieved my contemporary fit green Slub today. It's great, but I was right that a slim would've fit better. Too bad they were sold out. On another note, the Chinos seem really nice for the price.

    Well, for me normal 15 slim fits me good on the body. However, I have a beefy neck, so I will pretty much die if I button the collar button. Now, the NEW ESF 15.5, I can close the collar button and have a almost identical fit on my chest and waist.

    I don't really care if anyone's body fits OTR shirts or not. Just trying to show how dumb it sounds when someone insists that the OTR shirts should fit perfectly on him (hence the /s at the end). Congratulations if you do, and go custom if you don't.

    I do! Would you like to see it with no clothing?

    ESF would work best for the guys who want to close their collar, AND have a well fitting shirt.

    There are lots of us out there who now no longer only have to pick one of those.

    Ex: 14.5 slim=fits well in body, can't close collar
    15 slim=baggy body, can close collar.
    15 ESF=fits well in body, can now close collar.
