    So I'm looking for some slim fit shirts... browsing through the threads, people tend to give their measurements in hoping to find that magical fitting shirt... I know my size, but slim could mean super slim or tent depending on the company... So fast forward now... light bulb went on.... SIZE CHART... useful? accurate? I won't be able to test my theory till later and I'm really wanting to know if company size charts are actually what they say they are...

    So far the few companies I did go over... Ledbury, H&K, H&H, and BB are seriously tents if I bought slim based on the size chart... am I on the right track? =D

    No, I would want to know exact measurements for each individual piece.

    You kind of answer your own question. Measurements are a way of eliminating the variability between brands. Brooks tends to run larger for that 'full-figured' American male, i.e. we're a fatter nation than most European ones, but J. Crew's classic fit isn't that much roomier than its slim fit. Someone providing detailed measurements eliminates the guesswork and return hassle for you!
