Classic All-Cotton Extra-Slim Fit Large Gingham Dress Shirt
Extra Slim Fit Shirt
Like the style and color in the shirt. Not too bright. Looks good with a charcoal suit.

The shirt fits great compared to the slim-fit shirts. One should realize that most American companies size shirts much larger because as Americans we are usually much larger. This shirt is more of a European slim fit. Before you purchase the shirt I would suggest you look at measurements on the website. The burgundy color looks great and it is nice to see Brooks Brothers is using a true spread collar.
My complaint is that the fabric is coarse. It would be nice if a higher quality cotton was used.

These are slim fitting but not excessively so.
The fabric is a bit stiff but the fit makes up for it.
They fit me better than the Black Fleece ones since the sleeves are long enough for me.

Not so much
Be forewarned that they're not kidding when they call this shirt "extra-slim" fit. My boyfriend is a lean, 6'5" 210-pound rower...but this shirt was MUCH too slim for him, particularly through the chest. He did, however, love the fit of other slim-fit (not "extra-slim" fit) Brooks Brothers shirts I got him.
Also, I got it in the burgundy gingham pattern, and as soon as he tried it on, my first reaction was "Bob's Big Boy." The color and pattern really look like a darker version of the overalls on that restaurant's mascot. Or maybe just like a tablecloth in an Italian restaurant.
Good quality shirt, but unless you're borderline emaciated, I'd recommend Brooks Brothers shirts in their regular slim fit, rather than this extra-slim fit.
