    Well that is what I was feeling from the start, and what I went with. [​IMG] It's all been paid, so now I just wait. [​IMG]

    I demand pics when it arrives (in a nice, fellow-SFer kind of way). I want to see the washed gray [​IMG]

    Damn yoooo, people, dress shirts need some slack in the measurement, its a rule not a preference. I'm a 36 chest and I wouldn't fuck with anything less than 19" across the chest. 19" is slim as fuck on me --- skinny but not tit hugging.

    Will be nice to see it in a non-business casual vibe though. Nice to know the jcrew-y guys can wear it too though

    This man speaks the truth.

    Man, this is bad timing for me. Really want a green peacoat, really don't have the cash. Oh, life. Maybe next year.

    Great looking shirt. 36 Chest and you are not a small?? I thought I'd be a SMALL since I'm a 38 Chest (Size MED in BoO). I don't think the fit is all that bad, just a little tight around the waist area.

    Ha, that's me. I agree, the shirt's a little too small for me. It's a size Small, and although the shoulders fit fine the chest could do with some more room, and maybe a fraction more length would be good (I planned on wearing it untucked though so length isn't too bad). I would have been better off getting the size Medium and washing + drying it to shrink a little bit.

    For those who might be interested, my body measurements are:

    Height: 6ft
    Weight: 72 kg (I think, haven't weighed myself in a while)
    Shoulders: 16.5"
    Chest: 36.5"
    Waist: 31"
    Hips: 32"

    Thinking I'll sell this and order another (any Australians who want a deal on a size Small shirt, PM me, haha)

    You'd be a Medium in this. BoO is cut aggressively, this shirt is mild in comparison, but fitted. Your shirt p2p size =/= chest + 2" (Arethusa [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG])... 2" isn't enough really. I also mentioned that the chest tapers in from the pits about .5" in narrower once you go down, but we in Asia measure p2p at the actual pit. It's assumed the garment will taper in with a subtle taper, for men. BTW, the measurements that are on the are measurements taken from the outside of the garment, and so the inside is a little smaller obviously, and you'd need to take into account that they shrink - they are a cotton oxford shirt.

    I actually think Stitch' fit in small looks really good, considering. I wouldn't throw it in the dryer but it fits like I've seen people wear BoO shirts and stuff around here. He would probably be better in Medium, but I think his measurements are a maybe bit tough to fit in a standard shirt, IMO. 16.5 s2s/36.5" chest on a 6'/160lb frame would've thrown me for a loop too, that s2s/chest is my shirt size and I am 5'9/125. The shirt itself though, does fit a variety of frames; the three of us at TOJ are all noticeably different builds ranging from tiny (me) to meathead (charly) and we can all find a size to fit us really well in the shirts.

    I may well order that green+brown peacoat. Just waiting on swatches.

    Do you have back shoulder-to-shoulder (widest point) measurements for the peacoat?

    Just copped a peacoat and oxford. If my plans for a leather in a few weeks/months comes to fruition, a significant portion of my outerwear choices will be TOJ.

    Bringing steez to the victims indeed.

    I offer that combined shipping discount but I'll probably be sending OCBD's separately, at my next convenience, since peas are in the production process and will take what a jacket/coat from me normally takes, while the shirts are here in my loft. I'd rather see them go out and be on people's backs.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Arethusa, you're gonna kill me with sizing questions. Is your name Ross, by chance? I have a guy who I have exchanged over 200 emails with at this point, and he has bought one piece from me so far.

    Look dude, the pea, it's supposed to fit slightly boxy, you can see it's got a nice generous split between the s2s and p2p and the sleeves are nice and wide all the way down. It's not a tight tailored blazer, it's a peacoat that you might want to fit that tight tailored jacket over, or a chunky knit, what have you. The half inches don't matter man.

    What I do want to know, is if the sleeve widths on the L and XL seem too big? I always have a hard time when it comes to the largest sizes. Somebody with an XL (ie 24" p2p) pea/overcoat with straight cut sleeves may want to chime in, I guess.
