The Bureau and Kafka have this piece in the size you're looking for.
Bodega has a webshop,http://shop.bdgastore.com/collections/engineered-garments

The silhouette is very similar, if not a more pronounced triangle shape or simply narrower shoulders, but I found the garments mainly had a smaller width/length ratio, for example once I found the fwk size that fit similar/equivalent to my normal eg size in the chest, I realized the body length and sleeve were much shorter than they would be on my normal eg size, therefore have to size up and then it starts getting a bit roomy in the chest and still just barely there on the sleeves, make sense?
So I guess if you're under 5'6" and have short arms it might be worth a shot, otherwise I'd want to try it on first or make sure theres a decent return policy.
