called the nearest store to me, next tuesday (the 27th) for men's collection.
I've been in contact with Jason about a suit, but i'm interested in what SF has to say. I already have the boring, boxy charcoal business suit covered, and now i'm looking for a fashion-forward suit that I can wear to weddings and social events, and hopefully use the coat as a separate and pair it with denim. I'm looking for pattern / color suggestions - I was thinking black, and Jason suggested black flannel. Haven't seen too many people in this thread wearing black...
vintage slim is a weird fit in my opinion - the rise is too high and the thighs are baggy but it also tapers fairly severely to the ankle.

Looking at the rise measurements and low number of buttons it...

I realize this doesnt answer your question but why don't you just buy xs? I've gotten j.crew stuff tailored before and whether its worth it or not is ultimately up to you. If you're very particular about fit, go for it.
Here's measurements on the slim-fit compared to the regular-fit in the secret wash button downs in size XS. This is from a customer service rep. Looks like the arms are indeed slimmer. Slim-Fit Center back length - 28.5 Across shoulders - 16.5 Chest circumference - 37.5 Waist circumference - 35 Armhole circumference - 18.25 Muscle circumference 1" below armhole - 15 Sleeve length from center back - 33.25 Regular-Fit Center back length - 29.25 Across...

I really hope the "slim fit" shirt has narrower arms.
You literally go in and explain to him what you want done to the shirt. One thing I would be sure to mention is that you want the new hem of the shirt to follow the shape of the existing hem. I neglected to mention that detail once and a tailor cut the hem off completely straight all around like a t-shirt.
