    Been looking for a button up shirt that works as well with jeans on the weekend as with chinos at work. Hopefully short enough to work untucked as well.

    The j.crew and jcf slim washed work well untucked but just seem to lay weird on me when they are tucked.

    Today in Nordy Rack I picked up a Ben Sherman "Kings" slim fit that I think is about perfect.
    Its fit is in between my Calibrate Trim and my 1901 Slim. The 1901 yoke is so much smaller the 34/35 sleeves end up being too short and a bit snug up top, but good in the middle. The Calibrate is just a bit big overall, but drapes well despite that and the collar is my favorite.
    1901 could be worn untucked, Calibrate is too long.

    Here's the Ben Sherman in pics, just the perfect amount of fabric in the right places and short enough to wear untucked. If I could just put the Calibrate collar on this...

      That deserves a pic. Here it is so we can all drool over it.

        Im quite excited about it! Hopefully by the time it's delivered the weather will be nice, and I wont regret passing on the 990 with commando sole.

        Good thing the drakes sale happened earlier, because after leffot I'm inclined not to go to any more sales for awhile

                Where did you get these, and were they discounted? I love the look, but they run pretty steep for a pair of sneaks...

                    Barbour Chelsea Flyweight Sportsquilt in Navy. Went true to size (M). One of my goals for this year was to get a S/S jacket (3-season in Houston) and I'm hoping this fits the bill. I think it's better for me than a Harrington style jacket, though I like that look as well.

                      So did the Chelsea fit you properly? Mine should arrive this week, although mine is the standard sportsquilt version.

                        So my local Orvis didn't have any Chelsea in but I spoke w/ a few reps who had experience w/ it and they suggested sizing down. Turns out that the Flyweight, based on the measurements at End Clothing, is actually trimmer than the standard sportquilt, and a few Barbour employees I spoke with on the phone said that I'd want a M to make sure I have enough room and movement in the shoulders.

                        For reference, the Flyweight Small is 17.5" in the shoulders and the Med is 18.5" according to End.

                          I think my size M is scheduled to arrive tomorrow and the S at the end of the week. I'll post about the fit once they get here.
