    I would keep xl, give it a good wash and put in dryer for a long cycle

    XL looks great as-is.

    another vote for XL, looks a good fit, the body and sleeve length are better for sure. If there's roomy-ness or excess fabric through the back for example, then you can either embrace the eg relaxed/slightly imperfect fit, or have it taken in along the side seams. Too short is too short.

    Sorry, stupid question here:

    If I take a size XS in most big retailer stuff (Uniqlo, JCrew, Etc.) would I take an XS in an Andover as well? Or would I be better off with a small? I don't have the opportunity to try it on before I order unfortunately.

    Thanks!

    You probably want to size up to small. Check measurements first for sure.

    if the uniqlo xs bd shirts fit you well in the chest and sleeve length then you should be fine with an xs andover

    hmmm....

    I was definitely leaning toward the S actually, mostly because I would use it more as an outerwear layer than a blazer.

    Sleeve length is not a dealbreaker for me, I'd mostly hate it if it were too big in the shoulders though. I'm just gonna need to find a place to try one on.

    Man, when I lived in NY I worked 2 blocks from Nepenthes, but never had the urge to really try on a lot of EG stuff because it wasn't my style back then. I wish I had.
