    To immage... that is too small IMO. The seams are too far up, as you have noted. It does fit well elsewhere, but I think you'd be better off with a small.

    No

    from the looks of that xs you'd be swimming in a small.

    Agreed. Your shoulders may be a tad to broad but that is a better trade of than floating armholes.

    Thanks guys, appreciate the advice.

    I've tried on the small sizes and the shoulders fit better, but the fit is worse everywhere else (the sides, the chest, etc...). I'll probably stick with the xs as the shoulder fit is a small price to pay for a better fit everywhere else. Also, it's not really uncomfortable or anything, I guess it just looks a bit weird.

    I'd say 99% of people aren't even going to notice that small incongruity, man. The XS looks a lot better on you than a small would.

    The ship date on the corduroys I ordered has been pushed back yet another month... Can anyone recommend some slim corduroys of respectable quality and a similar price? Wish I would have known this before today so that I could have copped the RRL cords at 25% off. [​IMG]

    llbean signature's got slim fit cords. they fit just like jcrew's urban slim fit. I've got the llbean signature cords and jcrew urban slim fit chinos. the cut is very close to identical. sizing is the same too, at least on me. so 32 waist in jcrew= 32 waist in llbean signature.

    J. Crew's sizing is so inconsistent. I'm 6'2 , 215 pretty broad shoulders and a sz L is ridicuously too big.

    My usual jacket size is a 44L and usual shirt size is L or / 15.5 - 16

    Anyone with similar measurements wearing a M ?

    I'm 6.1, 210, broad shoulders, and J. Crew Large is pretty much spot on.

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    I would think at 215 and 6'2" a large would be a decent fit.

    The Liquor Store in Tribeca just started carrying the Crocket & Jones Coniston boot. I can't remember the last time I've wanted a shoe this badly.

    Curious about the price?

    Since we're all playing this game it seems, 6'2" and 225lbs and a large is usually good on me. A bit tight in the shoulders but if I was to go up to an XL I'd need about $30 worth of tailoring for the sleeves and body so I learn to deal with it.

    I've occasionally tried on an M just to compare, and it always feels like I'm trying to fit into my kid brother's shirt. It fits but it's very tight and awkard feeling.

    Just hold off a little longer for the RRL cords. Ralph Lauren always runs one of its semi-annual sales a few weeks after their fall 25% off sale.

    Damn man I thought I was too skinny (5"11 around 155 lbs). Good to know someone else in the same boat! lol

    Fit is good man. I'll probably have to exchange a chambray I ordered in small for an extra small.

    By the way, does the blue chambray look like this, which is posted on the J Crew website for the shorts:

    http://images.jcrew.com/erez4/erez?s...if&tmp=prdDtIm

    It seems a different color (better in my opinion) than the one shown for the blue chambray shirt specifically on the site. Not sure if its just the picture?

    Levis 511 cords aren't bad at all. They stretch too if you don't them too skinny, I have to keep washing them otherwise they end up looking like a slim straight fit.
