Rated 3 out of 5 by JeffDayCPA Lightweight fabric does not drape well!
Comments concerning this shirt: If you are in a tropical (or humid environment), this could be the right shirt for you! The colors of the french blue and the pale blue are even better when the shirt arrives. It is larger in the waist than the extra slim fit sports shirts.
The material is very lightweight. It does not drape well; simply not enough warp strength. I have to use medium starch to get the collars and shoulders to look better.
I would suggest that there are better buys in this collection. BUT READ ON!
Comments about the extra slim fit dress shirt collection: I have 11 shirts from this collection. The material in the shirts I bought 10 months ago could have been better- a little denser weave and a longer cotton strand might improve the product.
Interestingly, the extra slim fit dress shirts I have recently ordered from the store's binder book showing all available shirts have arrived with better quality shirting.
Again, good shirting should be light, but more tightly woven. Longer cotton strands (i.e., better yarn) give a higher sheen. I sense that Brooks Bros. is actively seeking to improve this collection.
Smart move to attract younger or fitter folks!

Great shirt. I do wish it were available in an end-on-end fabric without French cuffs. I have large shoulders and chest, so It was probably a little more snug than most men would buy. I'm pretty fashion-forward, so it didn't really bother me. If you're muscular and don't like your shirts too tight, simply go up one half size in the collar and you'll be fine. Body was perfect otherwise. No bunching on the sides. Really happy I found this.

Contrary to the "extra slim fit" moniker, there is too much fabric in the back of this shirt which causes it to billow.

Collar button popped off on first wear. Not cool. Fits well and nice color, but starting to question quality of Brooks Brothers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thombrowneisapimp nice shirt
I bought the light blue. It is nice, but I wish BB would make its extra slim fit shirts even slimmer. It fit like a regular slim fit to me. I am 6'2, 190, with broad shoulders and a slim waist, so the shirt is the slightest bit baggy around the waist, but all in all its not bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by specialagent100 Real good
I bought myself the french blue and it was twice as good as I expected it to be. The online picture is somewhat inaccurate since the material is end-on-end.. So if you could imagine, the color shown is offset with white. This makes it somewhat more dull than shown here. It is nice, understated, and obviously better than what everyone else is wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mattsf great shirts... non-iron still wanted.
Great fitting modern shirt. A class no doubt. Still would love to see this in non-iron. Plus, the stores seem to have limited stock of the extra slim fit, making it difficult to purchase..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Philidonia The perfect shirt!
The fit, fabric and quality of this shirt are superb. I really don't think that you could find a better shirt without getting it custom tailored.
