Of course I've gained a little weight this summer so maybe that's what I need anyway.
I really want a pair of PBJ XX-005s. I'm going to be in NYC next weekend so I was hoping to check them out and probably buy a pair at Blue in Green, but if their website is correct then they're out of the smaller sizes. If I were to order a pair through a proxy service, what size would I want if I wear a 29 in APC NS for a pretty slim, but not quite skintight, fit?

They look almost like mine do after stretching (maybe a tad tighter), and I think my fit is just about right. I'd size down one.
Thanks for the heads up...just ordered a light blue 15/33.
Damn, missed out on this one. I would have bought it for sure.

The best course of action is probably to bug them about it to see if they'll add it eventually. :\\
I received my shirt today. I'm quite impressed overall given the price. The fabric, a pink and white textured weave, is very nice. The fit, which I was worried about, is nearly perfect, the only problem being a bit of uncomfortable tightness at my elbows when I bend my arm, but a slight tweak next time will fix that (I took the measurements from another shirt). My only real complaint is the collar. It's quite soft and the stays aren't even really stays...they feel about...
I had a shirt ship out on Tuesday...hopefully I get it soon. I'm a little concerned about these stories of the shirts being too slim though. I also measured another MTM shirt but selected all of the "slim fit" options. Although I emailed them right after I placed the order saying that the measurements were from a very fitted shirt and shouldn't be messed with. They assured me that it would be made exactly to the measurements I provided.
I found some great Polo seersucker shorts for like $30 at Macy's last weekend.
I don't really like how they look. I much prefer side vents.
