    Does anyone know how the slim-fit oxfords and wool sweaters fit? The size charts make it look like I should size down one from my typical size (M).

    I'd say both fit TTS

    The oxfords are typically long, however, so if you plan to wear them untucked you might want to take that into account. I'd say for an XS oxford, you'd probably need to be 5'8" ish to wear untucked without it looking too long...

    I find the sweaters usually have a boxy fit to them, but still TTS...

    I'm kinda in the same boat. There's a couple of slim fit shirts right now that are really calling my name. I'm a medium in Gitman Vintage, but usually size down to a small in J Crew regular fit stuff. Think I can safely go with mediums in the CM slim fit stuff?

    You're joking right? That's one of the worst stores for CM from a guy's perspective. It's narrow and it's small. I get your J.Crew analogy but I rather haev a large section like Eaton's Center.

    Was talking to one of the sales guys there and they mentioned that the Yorkdale location is higher up in the pecking order in terms of getting more limited items. Not sure if this is true, I haven't been to the Eaton Centre location in a while... I did notice the Yorkdale location has the McNairy footwear though...

    That's true mostly, but sometimes they're third party stuff goes on sale and with 30% off you can get a deal

    ^ bought 5 last week, returned all 5 today. Maybe i am too use to gbv but fit and mat were pretty bad for edward slim shirts. If you are looking for staple pieces, go for bit higher quality brand. Nowdays cm is nothing but fancy mall brand

    Edward is a decent OCBD. Matty is good too, I have both and wear mine frequently.

    They aren't super slim, but if you have some club monaco stuff already the sizing is pretty consistent between the oxford and the other sport shirts.
