Thanks for the warm reception! We're really excited to do this project. The shirts have been a labor of love for us, and we hope that you guys them. I'll be working on the poll tonight, so you can see all the options and start the voting tomorrow. More details to come!
In the meantime:

At the moment we don't, but I'm certainly open to doing these collaborative shirts in XS if there's an interest. That's no problem.

They split the difference between dress shirts and casual shirts. I use stiffer facing in the collar and cuffs, so they accommodate a tie very well. The fabric is a premium pima cotton imported from the UK, and very much a dress shirt quality. However, the slimmer and shorter cut makes them work well casually too. I wear them with suits, blazers, jeans, shorts.. pretty much everything.
Our French Cuff shirts are definitely dress shirts. They look really polished, and I believe that their slim cut really sets them apart.
For comparing them with other brands, I'd say that our shirts are in the Rag & Bone, Shipley & Halmos, and former Obedient sons vein. We're slimmer cut than Obedient Sons, J.Crew, or Shipley. We're less slim than Band of Outsiders. Generally, you can size down one for our shirts vs. BoO (ex. a BoO XL is a Epaulet L).

No problem, we'll hook this up shortly.
And here's an image from an early lookbook shoot that we did. This guy makes a better (and thinner) model of the shirt than I do - he's wearing a medium. I'd put him at 6'2" and 175lb
I'm happy to extend a 14-day refund policy for all Styleforum customers. So please feel free to give one of our shirts - or anything else - a try. If you don't love it, then you can return it unworn for a full refund.
Thanks Epaulet; they aren't raw or anything so they won't shrink, but the waist will expand a bit right? In that case can I grab the measurements of the 34 also?
Hey there, Those are the measurements for the 34 - it actually comes in as a 36 in real measurements. The jeans are raw and sanforized, so they won't shrink with washing. They'll expand a little bit with wear, but I find that they expand a lot less than APC's and Nudies. The fit on these is tapered, but not super-slim. I often sell them to guys looking for a narrow leg opening - to wear with slim sneakers or shoes - but can't pull off really tight jeans. I've got relatively big legs, so if I put on a true slim jean, I end up looking like Jennifer Lopez. Believe me, it's not good. But these work for me, and I wear them every week. For really thin guys, they'll fit a bit loose. Thanks, Mike
Thanks mate; My actual measured waist is a 36 so I'm a tad nervous bout buying them and having the waist stretch out... usually prefer to go without a belt and think maybe they could end up being too big Was looking for a jean with a looser top block to a narrow leg opening, might have to think about it... got a fit picture on you?
P.S Anyone know how possible it is to get a tailor to bring in the waist of your jeans?
