    Ah ok, that makes sense. What's the back length (from below collar) for both sizes?

    OK thanks. Well, it seems that S is my Ivy Threads size, esp as far as shoulders and chest are concerned. Though obviously I'm a little wary as I normally take a Size M (Brutus Trimfit and BS).

    Ivy Threads size M seems more like Ben Sherman '2M', which is like a smaller Large.

    You can always return if not happy. But I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    It may just be the notorious difference between American and UK/Euro sizes. But now that I think about it, I've got a TM Lewin shirt I bought in S as it fit me better than their M. Will take measurements of it tomorrow and compare.

    Here are some navy ginghams I have in the swatch book. I just ordered some swatches of jumbo gingham. I'll post pics when they arrive.

    They do decent collars sometimes, but not often. This one was 'ok' rather than decent - two and a half fingers maybe, a bit like Brutus oxford shirts (but better quality).

    Anyone know of a brand with tapered legs that holds a good looking roll / turn up?
