    Couldn't find any threads on Saint James, was looking at some pieces of theirs online. How is the fit, construction, detail, etc?

    Which pieces are you looking at? I've found the construciton and details to be great. I have a Matelot U that is absolutely my favorite piece of clothing. The fit, however, is tough to figure out. It took some experimentation for me.

    I'm digging the Meridien II in Gris and Noir over at Union Made. Leaning towards the M. My chest is a 40, and unless it is crazy slim, I usually wear M.

    I like the quality too. I'd say the fit is on the slim side but like standard European slim for an American, nothing too crazy. I've found them to be cut a little short sometimes, which I like but you may want to consider if you're tall.

    ^That sounds about right.

    I've had the nautical sweater in several colours. (Matelot U and R) I like it a lot, but it could be little longer for me. (6'6" though)

    The Officer sweater is supposed to be same as the Matelot just longer. That might work for you.

    Armor Lux are a good alternative to Saint James if you don't find the fit quite slim enough.

    Got the Meridien II from Unionmade. Fot is slim, but very TTS on me.

    FWIW, I am a L in SNS, 3 in BoO. Generally buy M unless it is a real slim fit, then I size up to L.

    I'd say all in all Saint James is pretty TTS.

    Ahhh well, I mean I don't notice anything different on the neck, assuming that is what they mean. It's definietly thicker than a t-shirt for sure. Good layering piece for cold weather days, or easily stand alone for L.A. "winters"
