I bought them from Ian. The weird thing about it is they, according to his measurements, are cut very full. For example, a 15.75 shirt I bought had the chest measruement listed as 47 inches. For me, with my 42-inch chest, that should be a sail. But it seems like the higher armholes compensate for that and provide a closer fit.
I mean I usually don't buy an OTR suit if it has a chest measurement of more than 46 inches, let alone a shirt.
