    My grosgrain OCBD came in.
    Fit is great aside from it could be be an inch shorter in the body and the arms half an inch longer. The chest, shoulders and neck are just wide enough - gonna cold wash and pull the sleeves once it's wet and see how it comes out.

    It is a bit slimmer in the chest than the old casual OCBDs and maybe a bit longer in the body. Still, don't think it's enough to size up for me.

    Crump's Brother, I checked with them about this and they don't. You can bring your web order into one of their stores and they will make alterations for free. But if your ordering from far away that pretty much defeats the purpose.

    ^they actually used to do alterations before they had a web store

    When you could order from the soho store over the phone or through email I had them alter a couple of pairs of trousers...unfortunately I could not tell the one pair was pinstriped from the online pic

    33x32 if anyone wants new grey pinstriped pants from 2-3 years ago

    How are people sizing the MIJ selvage? Was thinking about getting a pair of the regular straight fight. Do I need to size down a ton? How much will they stretch?

    I always thought the lack of slim fit oxfords was a website only phenomenon. Turns out not a single one was at the 5th Ave or Broadway stores either.

    I'd recommend down one. I have the grey slim fits, and they stretch in the waist, but not to a ridiculous degree (yet, at least).

    Dropped in today and they have some new field jackets (Black, orange, and tan). Not as thick as the ones from this previous fall, but priced the same, i.e., $79.90:

    They also have some knit ties now too. Forgot to check if they were silk. I think they were around $20.

    Ties are $13 and 100% synthetic. They also had (at least at 34th St) some cotton/linen blends (not knit) for the same price.

    Have to say those field jackets look nowhere near as nice as the F/W version. The material sheen isn't too attractive in my eyes...

    Tasmanian trousers are nice year round. I wish the cut of the jacket in terms of buttoning point was lower.

    In terms of suiting, it makes a decent first suit. I own 2 in navy and gray. When I actually take a proper photo they actually do not look bad if you accessorize correctly e.g. tie and pocket square.
    FWIW I also own a black +J suit, which in the same size, relatively fits slimmer and buttoning point SEEMS to be lower, but not by much I think.

    Still on the look out for a proper OTR suit though.

    Thanks for the correction. Saw the madras type ties too, but they didn't feel like snapping one of them too.

    Agreed.

    The SF store still has 4-5 UU down jackets at $60 if anyone was looking for them.

    Also their linen shirts are out, many more colors than previous years.
