Thanks @Synthese for the input.
I definitely see the similarities between Transit and Poeme with the overly faded/dyed designs and other derivatives. Might give it a go with a deeper discount but I'm not too keen on the flap pockets, which I just noticed.
Most of Rick's cotton and silk/viscose blend tees tend to stretch and I would say it's safe to size down one. Hell even some of his wool knits stretch a lot. After a nice wash & dry it returns back to normal.
