Labeled 36, but is fits 38   Measurements:   P2P: 19'' Shoulders: 14" Back length: 23"   Made in USA
What about the fabric? I just got a GoRuck gym bag, and its feels rather coarse. I was going to buy a GR1, but I'm worried now it might be abrasive or chafing.

They are a bit wide. For what it's worth, the outsole is 12 inches long and 4 3/8 inches at its widest. I wore them a few time before realizing I'm not going to break them in because they are too small for me.   I don't accept returns unless I grossly misrepresented the item. Feel free to ask for more close-up photos if you need them.
They are slimmer-fitted at the waist, but they are slightly wider in the shoulders than any M or vanity-S size shirt that I have. The more correct term for the fit would be "tailored" or "athletic".
I have this issue too. On some shirts the difference is negligible, but there is one where it's as big as on yours. That's the only brand I've bought that has this issue. Another evidence of their workmanship can be seen on the "native stripe" shirt, where the stripes are not symmetrical on the sleeves, collar and yoke. But don't worry about your shirt being shoddily made, embrace it as "unique heritage artisan authentic appearance".
Yes, I have this issue too. On some of them the difference in length is quite small, but there is one where it's as big as on yours. That's the only brand I've bought that has this issue.

They probably market it as "unique appearance" or some other kind of crap.    
It very well may be. I have a grey slim-fit OCBD from Uniqlo -- a box pleat, no darts and two-button cuffs. It is in size small (38) and fits me just as well as a Gitman in medium (I'm 6 feet tall and weigh only 130 pounds). It also looks better untucked than a Gitman because it's more than an inch shorter. And it was on sale for $15 -- I almost felt guilty as if I were stealing it. As for the fabrics, Gitman's navy gingham fabric looked and felt to me very much like...
The threads they use for buttonhole stitching feel too hard for the shirts' fabrics. In fact, one side of the buttonhole stitching tore away on one of my GV shirts when I pulled it from the rather tight-fitting jeans I was wearing. Another GV shirt, which I got today from Context, had a botched extra line of stitching on the hem of the sleeve (it was a short-sleeved one). I just removed it, but this is really unacceptable for an item with a retail price this high and...
