Where to get a tab collar shirt?

    Hey all, I'm trying to find a slimmer fitting white tab collar dress shirt. The only one I've found is the Brooks Brothers Slim-fit, but I've read a few things saying that the collar doesn't "hug" the tie...in other words, the collar is stiff. Anyway, if anyone has any leads, I'd be very appreciative. Zack PS: I searched but didn't have any luck. EDIT: I found a Black Fleece one, but I don't think the sleeves will be long enough (I'm closer to a 36 than a 35, and the BB4 has 35 sleeve length). But that is the type of hugging tab collar I'm aiming for. http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...=&sectionsize=

    Try BB made to measure shirts. You should be able to pick you collar style and I think they can do it in slim fit for you.

    I recently ordered the non-iron tab collar, hopefully it does roll nicely.

    Good idea on the MTM BB shirt.

    Maduro, when you do get it in, could you perhaps PM me to let me know how you like it?

    Most certainly. It's backordered and due in about the 5th of February; PM me if I forget between now and then.

    that sounds like a disaster
    first the non iron is stiff/ the lining inside will be wrong

    I would try the BBBF shirt. Usually the sleeves are slightly longer than that chart.

    I have 2 of the tab collar shirts. The look of the collar in that picture is accurate.

    MTM is your best option for a slim fit tab collar shirt.
