prob canada post if it was sent through USPS.
Finally picked up my brushed cotton olive plaid shirt from the post office, and I'm really, really impressed. A Large in the Before Dinner cut seems to fit me even better than a Medium in the After Dinner cut—except for the neck, which at 16.5 is about ¾ of an inch too big. But because I don't plan on wearing it buttoned up (this is a casual shirt after all), it's not a big deal at all.
I was also happy to find that the sleeves on the Large are also only about a half inch longer than than the sleeve length of the Medium After Dinner shirt, which measure 24 inches (my L Before Dinner measures about 24.5)... the chart indicates it should 1.25 inches longer, but I'm not complaining! I'm not even sure if it's worth it to get the sleeves shortened by half an inch and ruin the great stitchwork... but I'm pretty OCD, so we'll see.
The fabric is incredible, really soft and flannel-y, and the intricate weave isn't something you find on shirts typically.
I just hope it doesn't shrink too much... it's not tight by any means, but you never know.
For those that have experience letting darts out of shirts a bit, does this actually give you any more noticeable room?
Either way, I'll stop fellating Mauro and his work. Great shirt. Now hurry up with those After Dinner oxfords!!
^^ They are coming. I have reduce the neck going forward just a tad.

Will do when I get a chance.

god wish i was here for halloween ... the menu looks awesome!
Of all the shirts, or just the Before Dinners?
And word, you know I can't wait!
If nobody bites, I'll call up my buddy who's in med school at GWU and see if he's interested. He's about those exact measurements. Let a possible SF'er jump on it first for the free gear though.
I am around those measurements, but reside in northern PA. Would be a hike for either location le sigh.
edit : nvm
Snagged the only Large black and blue gingham that Jonathan at Lost and Found had. Building a decent wardrobe now.
mauro hit me up if you find an olive in size small
Mauro, I was reading back in this thread a few pages, and in a post you said the three oxfords are BD only... does that mean no AD oxfords? Please tell me it ain't so! Or did you mean we just won't see the AD oxfords until November? That's what I originally thought...
