Classic All-Cotton Slim Fit Supima® Oxford Dress Shirt
Oxford vs other fabrics
The full oxford, aka supima cotton, seems to hold its press much better than BB's other fabrics. Their catalogs used to have several selections of patterns available in the oxford in their "customize" section. I implore BB to resume that practice.

High Quality Shirt (but too long)
Seems like a very high-quality product. The fabric is thick, which makes it a bit warm for summer. This is clearly not a "true" dress shirt, which is great, as it is appropriate for business casual, and could even be worn untucked - if it weren't so long! The body of the shirt is clearly designed to stay tucked in, but is therefore much too long to wear untucked.
I will be taking mine to the local tailor to have it shortened 2-3" around the body, to the same length as many other shirts I have (which stay tucked in through all but the most rigorous activities.) Brooks Brothers should seriously consider updating this design.

Nice shirt, just not slim
Maybe its because the traditional BB cut is so billowy, but this shirt definitely does not flim in a slim manner. Wonderfully constructed shirt, but if you want a slim fit, buy the extra-slim version.
