Hey atlr, I found them to be slim and short, too. I took a medium in the workshirt and ended up going with a large in both the crew and the hoodie. Based on the looseness of the weave I'm expecting a little bit of stretch.
Rich green wool overshirt in size L from Frank Leder's latest release. This was kind of an impulse buy, picked it up to use up a credit but I'm realizing it doesn't quite fit me. Trim cut, flapped chest pocket. Described as an overshirt, but you could definitely wear this over a t or thermal. The true beauty of this shirt is in the material, especially the tone of the green. You really need to see it in person to get a full appreciation (yeah, I know it's cliché). ...

Hey Greg and Kyle, any info on when the new Niche stuff might drop? Looking forward to seeing what they've cooked up for the cold months.
Also, anyone who is having thoughts about unloading their Niche army shirt jacket from last winter in size XL - do not hesitate to PM me.
Does anyone know of a good proxy service in Paris that will make a purchase in-store and ship to the US? I've consulted old threads but have come up with nothing so far. Any input would be appreciated.
