As someone who has purchased the J.Crew neck and sleeve dress shirts in 1997 and in 2011 (yes, they also came in neck and sleeve sizes back in the 90's) I will call out their deception for another reason - The Shirts Fit Horribly! I bought one in 16 1/2 (which, by the way only comes with a 34 or 35" sleeve), and had to have the sleeves shortened (because I'm a 33 sleeve). This is something I am rather used to as many dress shirts only come in Reg or Long for sleeve lengths, but the worst part was that the body of the shirt was gigantic. In stark contrast to the tailored feel you get form many of their casual shirts, you do not get from their dress shirts. I haven't tried the slim version, so I can't speak for those, but the regular fit shirts were a definite disappointment...and the fabric felt cheap too.
