    If a S in J.Crew "secret wash" shirts/ dress shirts fit me very well, should i also go for a small with the chambray and nailhead oxford utility shirt?

    I'm 5'8, 160 lbs, 39 chest, 31 waist, 15.5 32/33 shirt, broad shoulders. Am I a small or medium?

    I'm damn near exactly your stats, including the shirt size, except a 32 waist and I usually buy mediums. The secret wash are a touch big on me but not enough to downsize to a small. Sleeves are usually an inch too long though. If it's not a style I typically roll up I usually have them shortened.

    +1, but that's the current fashion.

    SHADOW is navy, it looks more faded, less vibrant in person.

    It's slate blue, right?

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    I dont own any other utility shirts from J crew but it fits slightly baggier than the chambray
    im about 6'3 , 180 lbs and I took a small ... I was swimming in a medium


    [​IMG] You are 6'3" and can wear a SMALL long sleeve shirt? There is no way in hell the sleeves are long enough for you unless you have deformed baby arms.

    I'm 5'7, 160 lbs, 38 chest, 31 waist, 15.5 32/33 shirt, non-muscular upper body. And I wear almost everything in small.

    Haha, for a second there, I thought those were my stats again. Must be my broad shoulders from all my lifting that is keeping me from fitting into the S.

    Just out of curiosity since you have the same chest measurement as me, are the secret wash shirts a little tight in the chest area when you button all the buttons except for the collar?

    I just checked the J Crew website, and they actually recommends size M for those with 38-40 chest. That might explain why the M has some breathing room for me while the S is kind of tight (to the extent that I can actually kind of feel the shirt pressing against me).

    Do you think the LL Bean watch can be fitted with the J Crew watch straps? If they could, I might actually consider getting the LL Bean watch.

    I was in the store over the weekend and picked up the sun washed oxford in an aqua color, as well as the new madras not listed on the the site (it is red, white and not sure if it is navy or black). The buttons are black but it kinda looks navy in the print. I asked the SA cand they said it was navy despite the black buttons.

    Having long legs is not an issue at all compared with having large thighs that even regular fits sometimes actually don't fit. So I have to avoid any patterned pants.
    That sucks.


    I bought them today, and am very happy with the overall fit and look. They're great with Chucks and a polo but could easily be dressed up with lace-ups and a blazer. Nice lightweight cotton, too, in a color that won't show dirt.
