Thanks @KeithT   Navy looks great on that Monaco as well.   It's nice to have a strap that will pass as black in a dimly-lit environment, but lets out a nice bit of color when it's bright.

Thanks @notwithit   Tough call. I'm leaning towards the Oni because I have a Levi's jacket that - while an updated, modern style - is closer to the SDA.   I just have no idea how that "secret denim" will break in or how much color it would stand to lose/how quickly....

The purely casual shirts that run in S, M, and L are generally sized for people of smaller statures and, for my build, the L would require too much alteration to bother...
Honestly @bows1, you've got to find the most skilled alterations tailor around and ask him to give you the options. It will probably come down to shortening from the shoulder and possibly ruining the contour of the sleeves, or being okay with new stitching at the sleeve placket.   I had a similar issue with a tricky Italian jacket with working buttons, mixed fabric and a raw edge. Long story short, the raw edge had to be folded and there was a new stitch line along the...
I think it was Tim Allen who said, "Being wealthy when noone else is, is like being the only one at the party with a drink."
