    +1 for Brooks Bros ESF, Gant Rugger, and Ratio. Sizing down in J.Crew or LEC could work as well for what you're looking for.

    I visit NYC in August. I would check it out!


    I have gotten all my dress shirts tailored now, save for one, so as long as the armholes are high enough, I'm not completely deterred by a fuller body. The thrift store selection in Milwaukee is grim. But I'll keep my eyes peeled.

    In my experience, the best [slim] fitting oxfords I've found are older ones from thrifts. Not to mention they're usually heavily and well constructed.

    Hey Nicholos,


    If you're anywhere near NYC, the Uniqlo oxfords for $30 run pretty slim.


    I've also been told the RL Rugby ones are slim, but haven't had a chance to try one on. Normally $50-$60 but I think you can get them on sale for around $40.

    Hehe I certainly did steer it wrong!


    Seems harder to find fitted OCBDs than any other kind of shirt.

    Btw; those smart are trim fit aren't oxfords, lest anyone get confused, and this thread wander any further off topic.

    What's the difference between the Nordstrom SmartCare Trim Fit and their Calibrate Slim Fit?

    I'm currently sold on the Nordstrom Calibrate slim fit shirts. I like them better than my 1MX fitted shirts, and they are the same price, and look more expensive.

    Haven't tried on an LEC OCBD, but just holding it on the hanger, I saw the body went straight down. Fine for some, but I need it to taper.


    To the OP, I haven't seen or tried the 1901, but I am thoroughly pleased with the Nordstrom SmartCare Trim Fit. I measured the waist of my shirt and found it to be the slimmest shirt OTR that I own. Slimmer than the Express ESF. (Trying to use as many acronyms as I can!)

    Haha. So far I think it's LEC = Land's End Canvas, ESF = extra slim fit, OCBD = oxford cloth button-down.


    Anyway I agree about LEC oxfords. They are cut slimmer than regular Land's End but if you want a true slim fit you should try to size down if you can.

    this board should have a translation key for all the acronyms used..

    I guess I wasn't clear. I'm just looking for more variety than OCBDs and was wondering if Brooks Brothers had that. You know, extra slim fits with a few more options.

    you want non-button-down oxford cloth shirts? umm...not really going to happen. I can't think of any oxfords in neck/sleeve measurements...i'm sure they exist, but i don't know of them offhand.

    I didn't spend a ton of time looking into it, but it looked like the brooks brothers ESF nearly all had button down point collars for their dress shirts. Is this correct?


    I saw some variety in the more casual ones but those are only sized by S, M, L and not neck x sleeve
