I've had shirts with sleeves that were a bit too short and I always felt irritated by them and didn't wear them often as a result. 

 

Also, if the sleeves are a bit too long, it's easy to tighten the cuffs by moving the button.


Thanks.

That's where I was leaning, just didn't know if Kamakura's 33.5 was actually more like a 34.

Appreciate your help. Look forward to seeing how it fits.

Here are their photos with corrected white balance for those interested. I already ordered one in the light blue, and I'm glad I did because it is now sold out in my size.

Light Blue:





"Deep" Blue:





Pink:


OK actually I was way off. Their photos are actually fairly accurate. Received the light-blue stripe, and not that you would know this from their site, the reason it looks like it does on the website is because while the blue thread is blue, the white thread is actually more like ecru. Making the whole thing like a weird sepia-toned version of a standard white/blue university stripe. As my brother said, it looks kinda old-timey.

Awesome, perfect fit for me and the oxford cloth is great. But just not the color I was looking for.

I'll post pics to show what it is. If someone wants to buy it from me for their price plus a few bucks shipping, PM me.

Sorry for the dramatic lighting but I wasn't able to get home in time to get window lighting.

Used a BB university stripe and a solid white plus the Kamakura light blue university stripe for comparison.

A couple of years ago Kamakura sold these type of OCBDs and they may have even labelled them as "Vintage Ivy" at the time. I was always curious about them, and almost ordered one, although it was difficult to discerne what the actual colors were.

What size did you purchase? Also, just out of curiosity, what size BB Black Fleece do you wear, for comparison.

This is 16-35, or 41-89 in their sizing. The black fleece shirt is actually my brother's so I can't comment on size comparison directly, though he wears BB4 and there's no way he could fit into this OCBD. This is probably on par with a BB ESF in 16-35.
