    So, is anyone able to decipher the "chambray oxford" description? Before now, I've though as chambray and oxford cloth as separate fabrics.

    It might simply be a lighter version of their standard oxford (which is fairly beefy).

    I know Acrimony had a lighter version and described it as, "Cut from a lightweight oxford cloth with subtle slubs in the yarn, this version of Gitman's classic oxford is a great option for the warmer months. "

    Looking closely, it doesn't look like a normal chambray, which usually has white stitching that appears more visible than their oxford counterparts.

    But still..hard to say...

    Thanks Dbear. Still, it's an odd way to describe a shirt. They do look great though!

    Saw it yesterday....it's a great dark blue chambray color, not really grey at all IMO....reminds me a little of my KMW chambray if your familiar with that at all. Pics on Context are accurate I'd say (at least on my monitor).

    After a couple washes I'm semi-convinced that XS is too small for me.
    Even from this crappy shot, you can kind of see that it's tight around the chest.

    Kind of torn between buying more XS's or sizing up :\

    I obviously can't tell how it feels on you, but that actually looks pretty spot on to me.

    Have taken about a dozen opinions into account: more XS have been purchased :)
