Check Dress Shirt, Purple, Trim Fit
Nice shirt and pattern, but very tapered in torso cut. Had to be returned.

The material is very nice -- feels thick/heavy and high quality. But the fit is pretty blousy for a "trim fit." It's okay through the torso I guess (maybe more of a "tailored fit"), but the sleeves have 3 generous pleats at the cuff (1 inner arm, 2 outer arm) and have enough material for Schwarzeneggar arms, poofing out in the forearms if your arms are on the 32 end of 32/33. Very un-trim and old-fashioned looking. There's almost an inch more material in circumference of the sleeve than in a trim fit shirt from a rival shop. I'll probably dump the money I saved on the sale into tailoring, so good thing the material is that nice!
