I agree on both counts, however I've found that it may also depend on the season of the shirt in question. For instance, I have this season's Chambray 19th C. BD and it stays tucked in very well. Recently, I purchased a Broadcloth Plaid F/W 07 19th C. BD from Gary and, not only does the shirt fit slimmer than my newer BD, it seems to have a bit higher side seam and therefore hardly stays tucked in (at the sides) at all.
However, as you said, it hasn't prevented me from buying them.
