I am looking for very slim fit white button down oxfords that would be casually worn with khakis (Bill's Khaki M3 plain front) and likely cordovan Aldens. The shirt(s) can be either washed/vintage or not. I'm very boring so this is my casual "uniform" on non-work days.

Either heavier weight oxford for the fall/winter or lighter for the summer would be OK.

The Brooks Brother customer service were very uninformed but I am interested in a few of their shirts. I asked if there was any difference between the all cotton and supima cotton dress shirt material and they stated they were identical. The rep also did not know if the Black Fleece shirts were slim fit.

1) Does anyone know if the Black Fleece line and specifically if this shirt is slim and if it is a thicker weight fabric. I like the Grosgrain trim. http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...e&sectionsize=

2) I am considering this lighter weight model for the summer but is there a heavier weight version also in extra slim fit or is it seasonal? http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...lt_color=Grey#

3) The other option is the slim fit oxford button down from J Crew which I don't mind the distressed finishing but is it just as slim as the BB extra slim fit? http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/s...7156/27156.jsp

4) Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
