But I won't even bother taking them to the tailor. My first season LEC Shirts' (Both Winter/Summer) were far slimmer then the offerings the last three seasons.

pretty much the same as the men's version they used to have
Yeah man, I bought the shirt in the purple gingham when it was on sale earlier and I thought it was nice. The fabric isn't paper thin but obviously not thick like a twill either. I think it is just below an oxford. I think the stitching and buttons were right on. It isn't mentioned on the website ( I believe) but it does have a split-back yoke. This made it fit very well for me. The body I thought could have been actually slimmer. I was surprised that they said it was their slimmest offering. I would rate it somewhere between a Nordstrom trim fit and their Calibrate trim fit (the Calibrate is a little trimmer) so it isn't the slimmest shirt in the world, but on me, it was hardly blousy either; a good middle balance I think.
I ordered a 16.5X34/35 and I will have to get the sleeves tailored, but I also thought the neck was a little large for a 16.5. This might be a benefit though, as washing it could shrink it down to what I want. The gap wasn't huge. It could still be worn with a tie just fine, but not quite tight enough for the way I like it.
I don't know if it is worth full retail, but I would probably buy it if it was $50 or so. I got it for $30 with free shipping so I can't complain.
I like the shirt. I ordered a 14.5 size and it fits perfectly. The neck size is half size bigger, I think. My regular dress shirt size is 15/33. The fabric quality is very nice and the spread collar sits perfectly. Recommended!
Just posted a review On LEC of the selvedge poplin. It includes measurements of the 15.5. Here it is:
