    Yeah... great [​IMG]

    Trying to make up for a horrible first post:
    It looks like it´s the same fit and the London range of shirts have "new and unique details on collar, cuffs and buttons."

    Recently purchased a Barba from ShopTheFinest http://www.shopthefinest.com/p-76745-barba-napoli-blue-shirt-extra-slim-155-us-39-eu.aspx

    Does anyone know of a shirt that is slightly slimmer?

    I have a Maria Santangelo that I picked up at a store while in Miami that fits a little slimmer (about 2 inches in the chest and waist and an inch in the shoulders) better but that was 200 as opposed to the 140 for the Barba from STF and I can't find Maria Santangelos anywhere else.

    Just received about a dozen Charles Tyrwhitt Slim fit shirts (17/35). Got in on the $29 sale. Excellent quality for the 2x thay price, easily. The issue is the fit, so YMMV: a tad tight in the chest when I pull my shoulders back and a tiny bit of pulling at the back of the shoulders. I think one wash and I'd be in trouble. I think going up a half inch in neck would fix those two areas, problem is the neck right now is PERFECT and I fear a half inch would be too loose there. Thoughts?

    For a quick, cheap, and dirty slim fit shirt that it truly an extremely slim fit (albeit not very high quality at all, though still fairly durable) check out Vincenzo Boretti on Amazon (listed un VB Shirt Body Fit). They're cheap, look fantastic, and I believe are 100% cotton, though again, there's not much in the quality and detail department. They're one of those sorta sketchy seeming "Amazon Only" brands, but their fit really is great.

    I bought three Harvie and Hudson shirts last month in their 3 for 2 offer - e.g. usual retail at £75 each, but £150 gets you three.

    Against the advice that the shirts would have some residual shrink I sized on how they fitted in the shop. True enough to my dismay I found that on their first wash at a 30°C delicate cycle they did indeed shrink. Perhaps not a half collar size but certainly a nip in length and overall fit.

    As a consequence they are rather too tight and short for me and so I am considering having the double cuffs tailored to a single cuff - if indeed possible (?) - for more casual wear.

    Two options for this might be Pinnas and Needles or Tosca and Daughters. Any member thoughts on this? Great fabrics and nice thin MOP buttons so it'd be preferable to sort something out cost permitting.

    The alternative is to cut my losses and attempt their sale. The two concerned are as follows;

    Blue Oxford

    Blue Herringbone

    site link: Blue Herringbone Slim Fit Shirt

    Is there any interest here? Sizing for both is 15.5 neck, regular sleeve length.
    One not worn, the other worn once only for interviews. Both washed once.

    I'm in the UK.

    @SPIER & MACKAY has the best slim fitting shirts I've tried so far. I typically purchased custom made shirts as none of TM Lewin, Charles Tyrwhitt, or Kamaruka's options fit me terribly well (at least given the outlays). Spier & Mackay's fit almost as well as my custom shirts at a fraction of what I paid for them [​IMG]. If you're a slim or athletic build, they are a fantastic option! (They are also a SF member and helpful participant)

    hi everyone

    I am sick of TM Lewyn CTyrwhitt etc

    Also I have heard of Estado, http://estado.co.kr/
    the name isn't sexy but the quality seems more than ok. And above all, the collars are exactly what I'm looking for. The only problem is : no small sizes...
    would anyone know a brand proposing similar collars, same prices range ?

    thanks a lot

    Funny I'm in the same boat same brand. Do they shrink when washed? How about dry cleaned?
