    Could always just throw it in the dryer to shrink it a little... I think willycheesesteak said that he had his tailor slim up the sleeves on his. I've heard its pretty cheap and easy for a tailor to do, but I still don't know if I trust the tailors (drycleaners) around me to not screw it up. That said, I don't find the loose sleeves to be too much of a problem: either I'm wearing a jacket/sweater over them so you can't see them, or if I'm not- I have them rolled up and then its not noticeable. For me thats actually the upside of looser sleeves...on the flip side its a pain in the ass to roll up the sleeves on my BOO shirts b/c the sleeves are so slim.
    Yeah I had him take in the sleeves and the body. From the S/S 09 thread:
    Here's my grey one I got tailored with the sleeves+body taken in and armholes raised: [​IMG] Highly recommend altering it, especially since after you can roll down the sleeves and it will still look good. Also did the same for my blue one.
    It turned out pretty well. Here's what he did: [​IMG] Videos of the seams: -outer -inner
    And I got it done here if you're in the NYC area:

    Chest size? I'm trying to figure out my size.

    I wear a 38/39 L suit.
    My chest measures 38.5".
    The JCrew sweaters I own are S though, not M.

    stopped by jcrew but they didnt have the red chambray, wanted to check it out in person.

    theres so many madras, ginghams, plaid lightweight shirts this season...its ridiculous. some of the colors looked awful, some u/o type crap, didnt expect to see those colors at jcrew.[​IMG]

    You're definitely right in between. More likely a small though. Any 'Smalls' out there with some input?

    Stopped into a Jcrew today in hopes of checking out the red chambray but they didn't have it. Instead I left with the nailhead oxford utility shirt. Wow, talk about a thick, stiff shirt. Someone said this feels more like something you would find at a place like Self Edge then J Crew and I would agree. Just an incredibly thick and stiff fabric, I love it.

    I picked up the Nail Head and the red chambray this week from JCrew. I personally like the Nail Head shirt more than the red chambray, it has such a good thick feel to it. I'm friends with some1 who works @ the Mens Shop in soho and apparrently the guys @ RRL went nuts when 1 of the JCrew employees walked in with the NH shirt on.

    ^ I'm going to go out on a limb and say it probably fits like every other utility shirt...

    I love my Cadet Jacket (I posted fit pics about 10 pages back btw). It runs small and very close to the body, perfect spring jacket IMO. The epaulets dont bother me, they dont "loop" over or anything. Very cool jacket.

    I think those pictures are what made me look for the coat when I went to the store.. [​IMG]

    I'd get a small... i'm 6'0 165 and can pull off a small unless you are willing to get a medium tailored. For shirts that I expect to wear un-tucked and roll up the sleeves I get a small, I get a medium for other types of shirts.

    Glad I can help man. It's a great jacket, and fits very unlike any other J.Crew outwear I have ever seen. Kind of overpriced IMO, but I use my student discount on everything.


    Your fit pics are on point too with that jacket ! [​IMG]


    btw; I saw the dude who posted the red chambray (dinomight @ SuFu) working at the store on Broadway. He posted here a few times, and I think as of now....he is rocking that shirt better then anyone else I have seen.

    You're definitely a medium.
    I'm 5'7, 145, 38 chest, 28 waist, 15.5 32/33 shirt, muscular upper body. I am a J Crew medium because the smalls are tight in the chest area (standing up straight, not slouching), and the neck on the small is too small for me, as it would be for you too.

    it's slightly more slim then their regular utility shirts. I have a khaki utility shirt and one of their chambrays and the nailhead fits noticeably smaller then those two.
