Medium, probably.

Thanks :-)
well it's not so much that a longer collar doesn't make sense on a smaller guy, it's that a larger guy can't get a shirt with the longer collar (or doesn't have ape-arms like their NYSF sizing suggests they think we all have). Just selling in neck/sleeve sizes would alleviate it, but their sizing scheme is frustratingly deficient for those in between
Again, perhaps old news, but I confirmed with them that the button down collars are also shorter on regular fit shirts vs slim fit shirts: 9cm vs. 8.5cm. This explains my disappointment upon getting my first shirt from them and it's collar points not matching what Derek wrote for put this on in his OCBD series. He clearly was measuring a slim fit model.Pretty stupid and annoying if you ask me. Their slim fit shirt sizes are limiting.
thanks to my man @justinkapur, I got in touch with an SA at bloomies in SF and got the last white polo in my size for less than half price. Super stoked.
My fit pic today is kinda crappy. Sorry—was having no luck with stills, so I took a video, and just grabbed a still; it's kind of an "action shot," as a result, if you will.

Howard Yount new-and-not-so-improved-kinda-baggy-fit-but-comfortable-and-appropriately-loose-for-the-fabric hopsack wool trousers (they're so breathable!) Meermin snuff suede...
Others may have better recs, but I've got to say, there's not much in terms of local, awesome menswear places (i.e. not Nordstrom or Brooks Bros.). The places I do know of sell the usual midwestern-favored brands (Samuelsohn, HSM, Hickey)—one in Hyde Park called 45/46 has HSM, Boss, HF, Allen Edmonds, plus various casual wear brands, but isn't much to write home about; and one downtown called Hunt Club Clothiers carries Samuelsohn and Alden (plus others, probably). If...
Still going to Hyde Park Tailors. Tom Licata is still very good. He keeps raising his prices, however—I'm thinking more and more he's pricing himself out of regular alterations in order to reduce his business as he grows older and focus only on custom clothing (he makes, as far as I can tell, fully bespoke suits and sport coats for various clients, and his client list is getting bigger). So, as an example, his price now to slim down a jacket on the side seams is $75 (on a...
