Rated 5 out of 5 by SkinnyGuyInFatTown The Go-To Shirt For Slender Professionals
If you're a skinny professional, you've probably already spent many frustrating hours of your life looking for shirts. Please order at least one extra-slim fit shirt in your preferred collar and try it.
I'm 5'9" and 135 pounds, and I wear a suit to work basically every day. A regular 14 1/2"-34" shirt is a tent on a guy like me. You look like an adolescent child whose parents bought clothes for him to grow into. I would simply never remove my suit jacket or always wear a sweater (even in July and August) to mask how ill-fitting my shirts were. Getting a shirt that fit properly through the torso meant sacrificing neck size and sleeve length. This is uncomfortable, and it leaves you looking like an adult wearing clothes that he has grown out of. I've long hated both of these compromise options. I was willing to spend money on clothes that fit properly, but found it absurd that the only way to get a reasonably well fitting shirt was to have them custom made by a reliable tailor.
BrooksBrothers' extra-slim fit shirts are exactly what I wanted. As long as this cut is offerred, I will be buying nearly all of my shirts from BrooksBrothers. If any of this speaks to you, please give these shirts a try.
*I've also heard that wearing a neck-size that's too small is associated with higher incidence of stroke.

Rated 4 out of 5 Extra Slim?
My first BB shirt purchase so I don't know what the regular and slim fits are like - but this "extra slim" fit is still somewhat on the boxy side compared to slim fits from other makers. For someone who is in good shape with broader shoulders and a narrower waist there's still room around the waist (I wear a 40 suit and have a 31 waist). A good fit but I wouldn't think of this as being that slim a cut.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dieseljkt Non Iron extra slim fit shirt
Nice quality dress shirt, the non iron lives up to its name. Pretty much without creases by the end of the day and the arm creases make for a sharp look. I prefer the extra slim versus the regular slim for much more of a tailored look. I am 5'8, 166lbs, 16-16.5 collar and 32 arm. Nicely trimmed shape without the blousing around the waist that the other fits can provoke......All in all, a smart good quality shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fitvanguy Amazing fit
This is the best shirt I've ever owned. I have a stock of slim fit shirts but my associate recommended I try a couple of extra slim fit to compare. I will be buying more as I am fairly fit and spot in the range of where I should be on my BMI, being 6 ft and 170 lb, 41c 31w. 15 1/2 neck. These shirts are amazing in fit, they look good and feel good. Quality is good too and the non iron really works. Perfect dress shirts and I feel good everyday in Brooks Brothers clothing. Thanks Brooks Brothers. Please never compromise quality and I'll always shop with you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ATPM extra slim fits need half a size larger.
my boyfriend has wider shoulders and a narrower rib cage. we ordered an extra slim fit online which fit perfectly on the waist but too tight on the chest. We reordered for half a size larger and it was perfect. we are very happy with the shirts only we wish they had a larger selection for non iron extra slim fits, more herringbone and self weaves ideally! fabulous cut Brooks Brothers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perigrin Great shirt terrific fit
I purchased 3 of these in different colors and love them--no extra half yard of fabric to tuck in to your trousers! I used to purchase the slim fit but like fit of these even better. Brooks Brothers makes the best and these are no exception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Edraldiris Extra Slim Oxford Cloth Button Down
Randomly walked into my local store to pick up an additional white shirt that was similar to the blue I already had. I was pleasantly surprised when my sales guy pulled out an oxford cloth version. He said it must have been a return since they generally don't carry that extra slim fit version in store. I put it on today for the first time. Fit is great. No bunching of extra fabric. Not tight at all. Just right!

These shirts are too tight for even a slim man and should be sold in the boy's dept.
