I'll take it, will PM you. I just bought one and have the same problem as you -- to small. Thankfully your too small sounds like my just right!

I guess you could, but I don't really bother if they're well worn. Usually I just wear it down until a resole is merited, then topy the resole immediately.

Therefore, if you order something and it doesn't suit you or if you don't like it, you only have to ship it to Sydney, rather than back to the US. It's inexpensive, quick and simple. Cool, thanks for the info! I donated a couple of polos to charity from my last order because I thought it wasn't worth...

Man, I give up on Levi's 514 sizing. I'm a 32 true waist, had a darkish washed pair in 32 made in Sri Lanka, waist was too loose. Bought another slightly lighter washed pair in 31 made in Mexico, perfect fit, waist nice and snug. But I really wanted something darker so bought a 31 tumbled rigid made in Bangladesh, hoping it would fit like the 31 above. Nope, about as loose as the first 32 I had. ... I give up, not even going to try my luck with a tumbled rigid 30, will...

If anyone takes 15.5/33 in a Lewin slim fit and also has some LE stuff I'd appreciate advice on the LE sizes. I've got a couple of jackets / shirts from the Lands End Canvas range, I'm a 15.5/34.5 in Lewin slim fit (but have to tailor the sides in a bit...

They're a lovely slim fit, light blue, pearl buttons, and they iron like a dream. Oh and did I mention I got 3 of them for $30? Lol, shirts sound nice, but depends on the value ... how much did you have to pay for them? Actually my blue Penny Stock OCBD from B&S...

Like anyone who posts here, I like clothes...and I like a lot of different looks, but I'm not sure I have the lifestyle to make them buying them worthwhile. At least you're good at recognising this...

Chest 37 waist 29 sleeve 33 neck 15.5 I purchased 15.5 neck, 33 sleeve. Interesting, are these the measurements after you had the tailor take them in? I also buy a 15.5 (35 sleeve), but my actual chest / waist measurement is 38 / 32, so there's no way my shirts are that slim. I'd be...
