Same. Would have bought the "Surf Patchwork" instantly if it was long sleeve.
Hope all three of those patchwork madras shirts are heavily stocked... I have a feeling I'll end up owning all three.
Definitely, an 8 is probably the ideal US translation for these. They run pretty big, just not the full two sizes I needed (although someone in the thread I purchased them from actually claimed this). The poster I purchased them from was a 7.5 US and these fit big on him.
Tricker's Black Stow Boots 6.5 UK/7.5-8 US Just bought these off the forum about a week ago. They are amazing and in superb condition. I took a chance on them because of the phenomenal price, but, as I expected, they're just too small for me. (I'm typically an 8.5 US) These do not come with the box. Price is what I paid, $200 shipped CONUS. I won't be lowering it. UPDATED WITH PICS: Paul Smith York Boots in Sigaro Brown 7UK/8US Hesitant to part with these, but I...

The wool lining on the USMC is annoying as hell, took it right off. The arms are pretty slim on me and I kept pushing the lining out through the sleeve. I got it right with some adjusting, but it ain't worth the hassle in the mid-60's of Arizona. I don't think the fit of the jacket is particularly boxy, although I'm typically in between a med and large and I took a chance on a medium in the USMC. Any smaller and I'd have maneuverability issues but I think the trim fit...
thanks for the tip. and yeah, i don't have much color in my wardrobe generally, although that fit might be particularly monotonous
