This is the exact opposite of my experience 100% of the time I've done business with them. They usually ship same or next business day and the item arrives the following day in Boston. Email replies are often within the hour.Speaking of which, Camoshita burgundy easy pants came in yesterday. Is it possible to fall in love with a pair of trousers?
Are the newer shirts being made in a different factory? I am able to fit comfortably into a 16 contemporary from shirts I bought in 2015 and even 2016, made of various fabrics. The new uni stripe oxfords are snug around my back and chest. Anyone have this experience?

 Charcoal would have been the safer choice probably, but I wanted to experiment a bit with a lighter color.   I've found that the amount of seasonal daylight inversely correlates with my number of Schneider and Geller purchases, as well as James Blake plays on my iTunes.
Some thoughts on the RG/CP Chelseas.    Initial impression: Awesome colorway. "Sand" is the perfect color to describe it. More of a light to mid gray than a tan. Sizing: Went with my CP Achilles size (12D Brannock, 45 in CP, Buttero), and they fit very similar. Barely snug in the forefoot but not really. Instep is fairly low. Slight heel slip.
