I was looking at a Jcrew Small Linen shirt, it was made in China said it was summer 08 so I don't think it's the nice Irish linen they have now, someone correct me if I am wrong please. I just wasn't sure about the measurements, they said the shirt was seam to seam 19.5" if pulled tight it would measure 21" so it may fit me or may just be a tad to small. I know I have some weird measurements, It's mainly from when I used to body build for a few years, then from there went to fat @ss status for a few years and now I'm running a more normal'ish weight.

and I'm looking for some button downs. Something a little different then wearing AA 2001org tees every day.
