Sizing is the same as the OCBDs, as seen below:

I don't think so. Are you measuring the same way as indicated in the diagram? It fits a person with 36-38 jacket size.

^ There's also a 3.5 inches (laying flat) drop from chest to waist. KW shirts are more tapered than just about any RTW brands.

And that is a big plus.

Would it be possible to get a closeup picture of the collar worn unbuttoned, with no tie?

Kent, what is your true chest size, may I ask?

I wear 36-38, depends on the brand.

I just got my OCBD in the mail today and it definitely lives up to the hype. Great fabric, massive buttons and superb cut. You could hardly do better for $105.

It fits slimmer than the measurements would suggest. I have a 36" chest and my size 15 fits great, not tight but still slim.

I will be ordering more this weekend.

How is the cut as compared to BoO? Slimmer? More tapered? Smaller arm holes?

I received the slim fit shirt today and it fits great. I usually have to take in RLBL shirts on the sides but this shirt requires no alterations at all. However, I do wish that the fabric is thicker.

Check out my fit pics on the other thread. I am a 15: chest 37, waist 31, 5'7" 140ish lbs, and enjoy walks on the beach.

I have almost the same build, I am a 15.5, chest 36.5, waist 31, 5'7", close to 5'8", 144lb, so you think I can fit in the 15 or the neck will surely be too tight?

Any plans to offer a 16?

Sounds like the 15 is perfect for you in the body and the 15.75 will surely be too big. The only trouble is the neck on the 15. If you're sure your neck is 15.5, then it probably won't fit you. Though you could wear it open with out closing the collar.

My neck measures 15.5", but I usually wear a size 15" OTR (I have never understood this). My 15" OCBD fits loosely around my neck: I can fit two fingers in between the collar and the neck, and then some. It hasn't been washed yet, though, and I don't know how much the collar will shrink.
