Classic All-Cotton Extra-Slim Fit Button-Down Dress Shirt
Extra Slim Fit - You Aint Kiddin'
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.

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!

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.

Not Slim Enough
Contrary to the "extra slim fit" moniker, there is too much fabric in the back of this shirt which causes it to billow.
