A lot of the reviews seem to mention the fit being off compared to how they used to be, wondering if they have just ordered the wrong one?.. I tired one on in store and then bought another thinking it was the same but it fitted like shit and was about 4 inches longer. Looks like they do 2 cuts of the same shirt.

My gripe is mainly with the material. Since the new lables came into play last year, so have seemingly sub standard materials that are a lot thinner than the material used previously. They permacrease in the wash and the blue shirt in particular has lost its vibrancy.

Cheers guys. At 20 quid can't be too fussy I guess. I ordered the slim fit (blue & off white) so I'll report back on how (shit) they are when they arrive. Laughing out loud

Shirts arrived yesterday.

Really can't complain at £20. Fit is sport on for me. Maybe a touch short for a tuck but I won't be doing that anyways. Fabric is fine, not premium but not bad by any means.

Laughing out loud Ironing them is an absolute nightmare. I really need to find an alternative.

^Honestly the GAP Oxford's are great, the material is well deece, but the vents are high so you sometimes needs to brave a bit of hip flash when tucked in.

The quality of the extra fine merino wool jumpers is shockingly poor. I own a few and after just a couple of wears the wool is coming apart and bobbling on all of them.

M&S Merino and Silk blends have held up really well for me. Hardly breathtaking but if that's what you're after they're spot on.

This.

I have about a dozen of these that I have on rotation for work (cheers to flasket for proxy).

All fit exactly the same and wash so well.

You can prob get away with not ironing them but they are so easy/quick to iron.

So much better than TM Lewin/Charles T.

How much are they in the states? I couldn't find them on the website, although only had a quick look.

There is a BB outlet in Switzerland and they got extra slim fit at 200 CHF (more or less 140 GPB) for 3 shirts.
5-6 models available, PM me if anyone is interested by a pickup.

I paid about 30-40 USD per shirt when there was a special sale on the website (thanksgiving?)


I wear slim fit small if anyone wants measurements of that size.

That would be helpful as I'm usually small or medium in most things. Cheers!

I am a true medium/48 and I took size 15/35 (35 is the sleeve lenght)
