You must wear things rather relaxed. I'm 6'/165lbs and I wear a M in BoO. I can't imagine someone at 5'8, 135lbs soaking wet would want to wear the same size unless they were sizing up one or two.

huh? the geller pieces i own in 48 fit super slim (maybe that model fit smaller)...i usually wear S in most other dress shirts, for example j crew.
i guess ill go with S then...

I hate shopping for clothes online.
I wanted to avoid tailoring because at the pricepoint they are charging for some of the plain looking solids/oxfords to have it additionally needing tailoring to fit I thought was not worth it (might as well buy some J crew, gap, banana republic stuff on clearance and have them altered though the quality of the boo is definately better). I was even hesitant to buy at the $90 pricepoint because to be honest many of the boo shirts are somewhat by nature plain and not really that distinctive besides the cut and most average folks (non sf people) will just think that some guy bought a J Crew shirt that was "too small" Since I don't have much time to goto the tailor too much (though he is good Italian one) I felt like what the hell, I'll wear them till I outgrow them/shrink and it seems that Boo is popular enough so that somebody will buy them off you if you happen to not like them.

There are tons of members on gilt. Not just style forum members. This is why things go fast. Think big name stores on opening minute of black friday

Fairly sure this is a band overdyed (actually, they had it at the gilt sale, heh) I've seen him rock it on some magazine covers before too
