Hey all, sorry if this is not the right place to post this. New here and trying to learn the ropes. I'm considering finally biting the bullet and getting the classic EG chambray workshirt, but am not sure about sizes. I've had trouble finding good measurements for XS/S and want to make sure I get it right, since I've heard it's good to size down and I've personally tried on things at Nepenthes in NY that felt enormous at my normal size. I'm a 2 in Orslow and a Small in most brands' BDs (incl Uniqlo). I'm guessing the XS is the move? Anyone who's around my size and has insights - greatly appreciated!!!
Based on what you've listed XS is probably what you're looking for if you want a slimmer fit. A lot of stockists lists measurements so you should double check with them before purchasing.

What's your height/weight? I'm 5'6, 160 lbs, and this season's shirts (or at least the 20th century bd in S) run quite big. I could have easily gone for an XS. Depends if you want that oversized looking not, but I would say that sizing down at least one makes sense.

I'm 5'7", about 140. Pretty consistent S in most Japanese brands, usually an XS with Euro brands like, say, Acne or Our Legacy. I'm fine with a standard/classic fit that's on the "relaxed" side, but not purposely oversized.

Seems like most vendors would be happy to provide measurements if you gave them a call. At least, that’s been my experience.

Then definitely go for an XS if you can find it. It will most likely still be a relaxed fit, but the S would be intentionally oversized. This applies to SS20 at least. I've heard that things have been trending larger in recent seasons, but I can't 100% speak to past seasons. I want to say I bought a FW18 overshirt that was oversized as well, but my memory isn't that reliable.

Anyone in the EG loop know of the potential of bringing back their khaki poplin baker? Been looking for this blazer for years now and I haven't seen it since it's last iteration (guessing around '14?). Either way, was curious if anyone might have some insight.

Loiter is pretty similar in style and available this season in high count twill (which is really lightweight).
