Rated 3 out of 5 by ButtonDown Not a Perfect Fit
For years, all of my dress shirts have been Brooks Brothers slim fit. They look great, though they are still a bit too big around the waist. So I was excited when I saw that Brooks had introduced an extra slim size, and ordered one. It fit perfectly at the waist, but was too tight in the chest. This is a shirt for the truly skinny guy, and anybody who works out at all should avoid the extra slim size.
Otherwise this is a great, classic shirt. Though not "non iron," it still seems to resist wrinkling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by unclesam099 Great staple shirts
Everyone should have at least one of these shirts! They are made in the USA and have a great fit. This shirt goes great under a navy v-neck sweater (find one that's made in Scotland or Italy) or worn casually (not ironed) under a sport coat (one of the BB made in USA or Italy) with jeans (find a pair of Levi's made in USA).
Only con with the fit is the center back pleat that makes the shirt billow at my lower back. Please give the Extra-slim shirts side pleats or no back pleats, please!

Rated 4 out of 5 by jahdawg very slim
The shirt is very nice but it is significantly slimmer than the other extra slim fit shirts. Make sure to try it on in store before buying so you don't end up getting something too small.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WindyCity Small, not slim
I find the slim fit shirts to still be a bit roomy in the waste. I was really excited about trying the extra-slims but these have also gotten smaller in addition to slimmer. The arm holes are very small and it is not nearly as long as a normal dress shirt. I'm no weight lifter but this shirt is bunching around my shoulders.

Since Brooks came out with the ESF, their Oxfords are my go-to shirt. Can't recommend enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by anonymous1 Great slim fit
Truly slim fit, top-notch materials. I'm quite impressed that Brooks has made a shirt that's finally slim enough for me (5'5" and 120 pounds).
I wish BB offered these in non-iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by specialagent100 My favorite shirt
Contemporary, but subtle. The fabric's weave slightly obfuscates the stripes, the shirt might even at a distance look a really soft solid color. It's somewhere between grey and white, blue and grey, or white and blue. I can wear most of my ties with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jazzer Finally, a shirt that fits!!!
Thank-you Brooks Brothers for your extra slim fitting shirts. This is a classic that finally fits. I am usually looking like I'm wearing my older brother's shirts. Great quality that you'd expect from Brooks Brothers!!! Just awesome!!!
