I can’t fit Gustin denim. Chinos fit great, but their denim is a no-go for me

I’m considering backing a work shirt. Does anyone have personal examples of one that has been broken in?
I've got one, but hardly any wear on it yet, so I think it would be pointless to post for you.

I thought I had Gustin denim figured out and now I'm back to square one. I finally bought a pair jeans from them that fit really well about 6 month back, so I ordered a different denim in the exact same size and they didn't fit at all. I can wait 2-3 months for something that I think I have a 90%+ chance that it will fit great. I can't wait 3 months for something that I have a less than 40% chance of fitting at all. I like a lot of their stuff and I think it is a great idea but it isn't working for me with their jeans, button-down shirts, or t-shirts. I thought I might have their button downs figured out but they have changed the fit so many times that now I'm even second-guessing that. Pretty much every other brand can figure out how to make S, M, and L sizes that work for 90%+ of the population without requiring the customer to spend 30 minutes with a tape measure and protractor before ordering. So, that's it guys and gals. I've donated more of the clothes I've purchased from Gustin than I wear and it just isn't working for me. I'm officially retiring my tape measured.
Totally understandable. Though I have not noticed change in fit in denim over the years. I've also not purchased any of their sportshirts since they changed the fit, but even before the sleeves were a little long on the mediums for me.

I'm interested in the Gustin Field jacket but concerned how wide it is in the chest compared to the width at the shoulder.

Am I right that it's generally a boxy fit?

I looked at the field jacket too but besides the fact that none of Gustin's stuff really fits me that well, the lack of side pockets was a deal-breaker for me.

Gustin always has a lot of t-shirts for sale on their store and I've even purchased quite a few of them. Pretty much all of them have either been donated or they are used strictly for the gym or yardwork. These shirts must fit some people much better than they fit me because from my experience you are waiting 2-3 months for a t-shirt that is on par with the quality of Alternative Apparel shirts but they don't fit near as well and are much more expensive.
