    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    question: if i'm a medium in j crew, would a large overdyed batiste fit? or would i need to go for an xl?

    refer to measurements here: http://www.contextclothing.com/item.php?id=742

    edit: on second thought, scrap those measurements. the batistes are listed as having the same measurements as the oxfords. not so.

    i wear small j. crew (even then i have to get the shirts hemmed [​IMG]), small for the boo batistes. medium in the oxfords.

    Glad I could help. The measurements I gave are rough, but they should be close. If you think you'll need a medium regular overdye hit me up as I believe I will be listing one soon (the plum overdye). If your medium J. Crew fits you well then I would guess you would be a medium overdye batiste for a form fit or a large overdye batiste for a slimmer but more loose fit for warmer weather.

    Sounds like it doesn't work for you, but I like it. Long hem untucked shirts look like a dress on me. I am not short btw.

    For talls, try ebay. I have seen them on there once every few weeks.

    Shouldn't there be a F/W 09 BoO thread now? That is where the action is.
