What size/fit should I buy in your Casual Button Down Shirts?

Our Casual Button-Downs (and Unbutton-Downs) are offered in three fits, Standard, Slim and Tailored:
  • Standard: Slimmer than your average standard fit shirt. Not too boxy but not too slim.
  • Slim: A little narrower in the chest and waist than Standard for a bit snugger feel.
  • Tailored: Our slimmest fit. It's pretty tapered, especially in the chest and waist to tightly adhere to the torso.
When ordering, it is always safest to go with your normal t-shirt size (either at Bonobos or other brands).

When you're comparing the measurements below to the measurement of your chest size (at the biggest part of your chest), the chest of your shirt should be between 2 and 6 inches larger than that of your body.

For our Long shirts, please add 2.25" to the body length and 2" to the sleeve length.

For our Short shirts, please subtract 1.75" from the body length and 1.5" from the sleeve length.

Please note that not all Casual Shirts are offered in all fits.
