at least in the three i have this is true: point-collar with side pleats, button-down with center box pleat. additionally, the the point-collar shirts have two pockets with buttons in front (the first pic you see hides this) while the button-down collared shirts have one without a button.
 They told me the chore coat shoulder measurements were L 18 3/8, XL 18 7/8. They have the chest sizes listed, and L seems closest to what a typical 42 measures.
i have a swatch of the amazon green twill. it is much darker irl. way too dark for me.
 wear it on the plane.
if the shoulder measurements matter to you at all (they did to me) they told me : M 17 7/8, L 18 3/8, XL 18 7/8. i am more of a 40R in the chest but a 42R in the shoulders of most jackets, which is why i asked them; i wasn't sure between M and L. fwiw i ordered a large (but i don't have it yet).
and it sounds like one. unless it's the same fabric, it will look different. even black. maybe especially black.
i'd recommend emailing them to ask about the shoulder measurements and compare that and the other measurements to a well-fitting jacket. either way the XS is going to be pretty tight with only a 2.5" difference between your chest and the coat's.
and that's not my experience. i also have a 33 waist, ordered a pair of 32s that were too big in the waist. the 31s seem to have the right waist for me (they are a little tight but stretching to the right size).
i think they might have passed it down. my impression of people who work in the field: they change a constant and publish a new paper; it amounts to basically what you're describing! it's why they can churn out so many papers. (i'm not an expert in the area, but it doesn't speak well that this is what first comes to mind).
 i don't see the ambiguity of "well-behaved" as a huge problem in certain contexts, but i don't think it is something that should stick around for any length of time. in my field it is often used to describe sufficient conditions for something to do what the speaker/writer wants. this is annoying for reasons you cite, except in the circumstance of cutting-edge research, where it is really being used to say "ThiS is good enough to get what i want, but i'm not sure if ThiS...
