Tres bien carries them. So does blackbird, and some other online boutiques. I have to check my long list of online stores i have bookmarked some other time, but you could probably google some more.

I am 6'0, 140 lbs, and I wear XS. I just measured t-shirt I just washed and it measured 15.5" pit to pit. I've found that if you need to you can stretch them out when you put them on. Mine fit pretty perfectly when I first got them and they tighten up after coming out of the dryer, so when I put them on I pull the parts that I need to stretch a little.

Hope that helped.

Thanks, guys. I think I'm just going to order one of each, and I'll give the xsmall to my sister if it doesn't fit.

Anyone know of any place that sells decent quality OCBDs for really skinny people?

^^ BB Black Fleece size 0. Or wait a few months for Kent Wang x Thick As Thieves shirts to be made in size 14.5.

I was considering a BB BF shirt, but had heard they fit somewhat boxy. Are they actually a decent cut? Are they similar to the BB slim fit shirts (or trad or luxury), or do they not compare?

I'd try one on, but apparently only the BB in NYC has them in stock, and never really felt like having one ordered through the store.

Right off the rack, BF shirts are a fair bit slimmer than BB slim fit (more of an American athletic/trim fit really). And they will shrink a bit after washes. Quality is nicer too.

Should I get this pea coat:

http://www.rugby.com/shop/item.aspx?...goryId=3138718

or this one:

http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/Mens...7195/87195.jsp

They both look pretty similar. I've heard the Jcrew one in tall fits pretty slim, and being a 6'2 guy I could probably wear a tall just fine. The Rugby one probably fits slimmer but is also a bit pricier.

Any opinions?

I went to a AA store before ordering mine from Trendy Blanks and I found that the small fit me but it was a little long in the sleeves. The XS is kind of short in length but I'd rather have it too small than too long, that's just the way I like my stuff to fit. If there's an AA store in your area it's worth dropping by and trying some shirts on.

Went to the J Crew store today and found this herringbone jacket that I really liked. http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/Mens...6305/96305.jsp I think the color is a little lighter than what's shown on the pics. The jacket fits really well (sleeve longer by about 1/4 of an inch but that's it) but I'm not sure what to pair with - skinny button shirt and jeans? Sweater and jeans? Colors? I've not ventured from brown shades for jackets so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

I hesitate to say this, but does anyone know of anything a bit cheaper?

J Crew "Tailored Fit" / "Vintage Fit", or whatever they call the slimmer shirts these days, in size S or XS. Then budget $8-20 per shirt for alteration fees.

I was browsing my local nordstrom rack today and these boots caught my eye for the winter. What do you guys think? I have also been thinking about some LL beans, but I thought these were stylish. Si? No? Timberland Earthkeeper Boot
