It is cold and snowing hard in Madison, WI these days so mine has become a mid-layer piece and is perfect for wearing with a henley or tee underneath once I shed my outerwear. I'll post more wear pics in a few months. Its looking great so far.

Hmm, I'm sort of thinking I should have jumped on a medium now instead of a large.

Anyone out there in the same, but opposite, boat? ...just in case...

is there a chest measurement for this shirt?

i am trying to decide between the xs and s

i want to wear it as a light jacket so possibly going with the size small

i wear a small in most american brands like Polo RL polo shirts and american apparel and H&M

i am a little under 5'8 with a slim build and weight about 140-145

The label reads, "DRY CLEAN ONLY." If you choose to wash at your own risk, do so in cold water but expect anywhere from 1%-5% shrinkage.

I'm having second thoughts about ordering possibly the wrong size too. I ordered an XL and I'm 6'1 and about 182-185 pounds. What do you think experts, is that too big? The reason I went with the XL is the shoulders and sleeve. I have long arms. Any thoughts? I like the look that was posted on here earlier by Sam and would prefer to wear it like that....maybe slightly looser.

I went to Context yesterday to look at it and the fabric is amazing. I didn't really like the fit on me (and, mainly, I didn't have the funds for it), but the result is very impressive.

I am looking to exchange my medium for a large instead. Please check your PMs. The medium fit is a little too short on me (especially in the chest) but the fabric is WOW! Words fail me.
