I'd say it runs slightly small, which is what I like about it. A small cardigan at Brooks Brothers is too large for me and some of the J Crew XS are too small. I've found that the quality is better at Rugby than J Crew, as well.
I found the ESF shirts tight in the chest, too (but large in the shoulders). I tried sizing up in the neck, but while the chest fits well, the neck and shoulders are much wider. I then tried the slim fit, but the sleeves are very blousey, the shoulders are still to large, and there is way too much excess fabric at the waist.

I'll go against the grain and suggest that it looks like the tailor would have to take in the sides several inches for it fit you. This might not be possible, and if possible, it could look very odd since the width will still be wide at the chest. The sleeves will also be hard to alter since the fasteners at the cuff will have to be moved up and the mark from where they were will be visible in the fabric.
Still, if it was cheap and you like it. Take it to a tailor and see...
The corporate discount only works on full priced items (although it once in a while will work on special deals like this one.) When I tried it just now, it did not stack with the special price.
