Well, I'm 6'2", 155lbs, which is pretty thin. I remeasured some of the slim medium shirts, and they almost exactly measure the same as slim small on the charts now. They've lost more in width than length.
Japan blue and wine oxfords, true navy selvage chambray, and navy slubby-nep chambray all shrank the same way. I also received the Japan coal chambray, which I am going to return unworn.

It didn't really come through in the photos, but the weft is almost a light khaki in color, giving the fabric a very old timey look. I'll be receiving the Japan coal chambray shirt tomorrow. I'm literally running out of room for shirts in my closet!
