    Right you are, Ken. Huh.


    Medium Extra Slim Fit (Fitted)

    Neck 16 1/2 (16 1/2)

    Sleeve 26 5/8 (34) <-- they can't possibly be measuring the same thing with that

    Shoulder 17 3/8 (17 3/4)

    Chest 41 1/2 (42 3/4)

    Waist 37 3/4 (38 3/4)


    They say the ESF is:

    -3/8" small across the shoulder than the Fitted

    -1 1/4" small in the chest

    -1" smaller in the waist

    -1" smaller in the sweep (hips)


    Interesting! No wonder it fits me so well in the Small Tall ESF! Alright, I stand corrected!

    @nick - I don't know if that's true or not on paper, but in practice I've found that to not be the case. The medium Extra Slims are much tighter in the chest and arms compared to the medium Fitted shirts.

    The Dork - if everything but the waist works with the 1MX shirts, why not buy the slimmer fitting Extra Slim Fit shirts? They are identical to the Modern Fit and Fitted shirts, save for the waist.

    Any more opinions on the LE tailor fit shirts?

    Sorry to bump, but I'd like to know where shadow is getting his MTM shirts as well since I'm in the same boat (chest 42" and waist 32").


    I usually buy a few 1MX Fitted shirts when they run their buy one get one @ $20 + $60 off $150 coupon deals which brings them out to about $25 a piece. Fit is good in the sleeve length, chest, and shoulders, but the waist is noticeably billowy. My backup option would be Nordstrom Rack shirts for $25-$30.


    $25-$30 for the base shirt plus $25 for the tailoring seems like the cheapest way to go, so I'd be interested in what the MTM shirts are costing you.

    @shadow I noticed we both have large drops from chest to waist. What MTM shirts do yo ureccomend and how much $$$ total per shirt do you normally get?

    Jesus Margotron you are like a taller version of me with same measurements almost.


    FYI I pretty much just go the MTM route now, not point buying OTR then $25 to have it taken apart.


    I think that would work for you as an OTR shirt would be more like a casual length shirt for yourself.For me about 26.5" would be mid crotch and all my CT shirts etc measure 31" length and you're 4" taller

    I just ordered a shirt with the new "tailored slim" cut. Hoping to find something that fits me off the rack well without extra on tailoring. Chest: 39 Waist: 28. If anyone knows anything that works I'd like to know!

    Interesting thread here! Has mentioned everyone except I'd like to hear more about BR's new tailored slim line if anyone has any experiences with that.

    My BB ESF 14.5/34 shirt measures 37" at the waist. It's right up there with Express's ESF and a touch tighter than Ratio's Slim Fit.

    Does anyone have actual measurements of the BB extra slim fit shirts? They only go by letter sizing and their size charts aren't too clear.

    Any consensus on the slimmest shirt made? I am in a similar boat as shad0w


    6'4"

    36" sleeve

    40-41" chest

    32" belly betton

    30" waist


    I need some tailoring, badly, on the shirts I own.

    Jessy - They just don't have my size. If they have your size, you'll probably find them slim enough.

    Anyone know how the CT tailored fit compares to the BB extra slim? The BB extra-slim fits me like a glove. I have some of the CT slim fits that needed a trip to the tailor before they were wearable. For reference I am 16" neck/33" sleeve/41" chest/34" at belly button/32" at waist.

    @nicholas : So I guess I'll be swimming in it ? I saw one on eBay and wasn't sure if it was a good idea to bid on it.
