I was looking for some sport shirts on Brooks Brothers and came across some I liked in the Country Club line. They are not labeled as traditional fit, luxury, slim, etc - does anyone know what the fit is supposed to be? I normally wear slim and can tolerate luxury, but traditional is just ungodly huge. Any ideas?

The Country Club sport shirts are the luxury fit. They are not as slim as slim fit, but not as huge as the traditional fit. They are closer to the Regular fit in Brooks Select. I wear 16.5x35.5 slim fit Brooks select dress shirts and I can wear a Large Luxury fit sport shirt with no problem. They are a little bigger, but just enough to be 'sporty.' They look nice with Bills. They are certainly sized to comfortable. At full price they are not a very good deal IMHO. And they are the only OTR shirts I can find that fit enough to be wearable. You'd think I'd pay in gold, but $148 is just not a good value. They are mostly made in Malaysia. The buttons are nice, but no one else notices besides me and my wife.

Yes, they are luxury fit. I'd caution, however, that they aren't worth their retail price.

I agree; even at the Clearance price they are hard to cost-justify. Thank God, I don't even try! :devil:

Brooks Select is competitive with the Country Club line at full price and Made in the USA.

I like to wear them when I go somewhere everyone else is wearing work polos and khakis. I wear them with Bills and Aldens, of course. It's all the conforming I can stand.

Lol, sorry. I didn't realize until now that I've only repeated information that you have already provided. (tries to remind self to actually read threads next time)

I'd basically assume that any BB shirt not specifically labeled as "trim" or "slim" or whatever is going to have a variation on the standard BB look: i.e., roomy. If you're a trim sort of guy, the shirts will probably need some serious tailoring post-purchase.

"Ungodly huge" really depends on how slim you are. But if you're the least bit thin, the standard-issue BB shirt width is going to look silly on you right off the rack.

I have never noticed the CC line to include luxury fit, but have never paid real attention to this. I have several BB CC shirts in the traditional fit. The best thing is they are not coated with non-iron teflon. Based upon my shopping, most of them are traditional fit, which I prefer and do not consider to be "huge", although I look the brooks full fit. They fit me fine and I am at 6'0" 185 lbs and in good shape. Even 20 years ago and 20 lbs lighter, they fit fine.

I also have several luxury fit dress shirts. I like the 2 button cuffs, however the sleaves seem a little short. I also often miss the pocket. They are also USA made as are the CC shirts I have purchased. Over the last 5 years, more and more of these shirts are non-iron which is a shame.
