Based on the updated description of the blue chambray on the site, I'm thinking they'll have a slim version later in the season. Quote: Inspired by vintage workwear from the early 1900s, this heirloom-worthy shirt has authentic details like a tab collar with hidden buttons to secure it and a two-button extended collar band (or "chin strap") for reinforcement"”a classic detail. The Japanese selvedge cotton chambray is the best you can get. We stonewash ours...

Sale started today, so all of the collabs are down. I'm also interested in the University Coat. I saw the pics posted earlier in the thread; I'd probably be about the same, a small slim-fit (6'1, 145lbs), wondering if it's a good option for the winter. I'm at...
