Classic All-Cotton Slim Fit Supima® Oxford Dress Shirt
An excellent purchase.
For many years I use the Brooks Brothers Shirts, always with complete satisfaction. I think they are a great combination of quality, comfort and elegance. In particular, I find Oxford Shirts well suited to the climate of the Caribbean in the cooler months. Please forgive my bad English, but I hope that these considerations may be useful to someone.

This shirt is a standard, a wardrobe staple. Requires ironing but the heavy fabric makes the ironing easy. The fit is not so slim; I would describe it as moderately slim or slimmer than average, which is pretty big these days. If you are middle-aged and in decent shape, it's probably going to work well enough for you.
The pink is a good pink; it's more of a rough mix of red and white than a soft and pure pink. The ecru is good for everything but use with light brown khakis. The white is sound but perhaps too business-looking for casual use.
Best of all is the light blue. This looks good with everything. I wish they did more than one shade of light blue. Until then, this one is good and worth owning in numbers.
Two details to note are the collar, which has enough length and the proper button placement to produce a good roll, and the shirring at the sleeve, which adds a little swank.
If one of these fits you well, you are in luck. I wish they were still 100% made in the USA. On the other hand, they are not expensive and we'd pay double or more for made in the USA.
