It's been summer in Louisiana for a couple weeks now. But, that doesn't mean I dress like Dwight Schrute...
IMO LS versions are more versatile; as you don't need summer to wear it.

Touche on the Schrute! We have to make what we can sell in a decent volume and during the warm weather, I'm not confident enough to bring these in. We are working on them for fall though. Soo..

sweet thanks. i'd probably size up on white, but do my normal size for darker colors since they're more forgiving, and polos tend to stretch throughout the day as you wear them.

They ran a bit slim last time so I wear a large, and a 40 slim jacket.

How slim are the polos? I'm a 36 in the sportcoats and size small for the sweaters. Should I buy smalls? I have an athletic cut if that matters.

Also were there any pictures posted earlier in the thread? I'm 15 pages back already and haven't seen any yet.

I'm a 40 slim jacket, somewhat athletic and wear a large. I think try the small if these new ones are sized the same as previous.

I don't think much exists for pics on the polos on their own here, I post them a lot under jackets though. These pics are me in mediums in the old version, I since changed to larges for more room.

Hey old news on the washed denim shirts, but fyi:
I just bleached a mid-wash denim shirt (from propercloth) successfully and wrote a post about how I did it on my blog (link in signature). In case any of you were on the fence about the washed denim shirts SM is selling because you were looking for a slightly lighter wash.
the process isn't scary at all (well it is, but it is easy to get it right).

Those are mediums? I'll definitely go small then.

I'm mainly trying to compare the collars - I haven't really seen polos with cutaway collars so not sure what to expect.

Is there any chance that there will be some more Madras this Spring/Summer season?

Also, I noticed that some of the sizes sold out of the recent batch of OCBDs... will there be a restock?

Question for you all- My shoulders are 18.5 and chest is 40. Will the shoulders be too narrow on the 40 jacket? I have a feeling the 42 will definitely be too big in the chest and upper waist...

No Madras this year. Yes, we will be restocking the OCBD. What colour/size?

Wow, it's been a steady three years that you've had them iirc, must not have sold well last year. I always loved the madras, I have a few older ones that are amazing.

Depends on where/how you measure your shoulder? Are you measuring from the outer edge of your shoulder or shoulder bone to shoulder bone?
