I hate wearing undershirts, ruins the aesthetics IMO. Also makes for more troublesome layers. I dunno, never been a fan. Just don't sweat too much

Meh, I like to wear white v-necks. I can also go without. Works either way, you can't tell I have one on. I definitely wouldn't wear one if it messed with the aesthetics of the shirt.

Probably a 0. I'm 5'10" 147lb and I have a 1 in the waterproof Harrington from this season. I also tried on the leather Harrington at Barney's and I was a 1.

Probably. I'm a medium at 5'10 147, 38 chest. I take a small in gitman and Epaulet if that helps.

Generally size up in BoO Bd's, especially if you are taller than say, 5'8", they are cut pretty short and tailored quite slim. I'm a small in some of their outerwear, though - while I'm a 2 in the blazers. Their BD shirt sizing is pretty consistent. Polos run anywhere from TTS to 1 size up. I'm a 1 or 2 in the polos. Sweaters are generally consistent with BD sizing. I'm a 2/medium in the cardigans.

If you are looking for a slim tapered fit in BoO Chinos, you should size down to a 0. I have a 28 inch waist and I thought they would fit tts, so I purchased a size 0. They were a little too big for me. IMO, if you are going for a slim tapered look, don't go for BoO chinos because they are made to be a classic straight leg.

I'm a pretty big fan of BoO in general, but I think a lot of it is overpriced. I usually just get it on discount. I think the chino's aren't really worth it, personally. Don't even bother if you want a taper. A pair from Epaulet, W+H, or Unis will be better and far less expensive IMO.

if anyone has any xs boo shirts that they're looking to get rid of, please let me know!
post #581 of 706
I'm looking to buy a BOO sweater. I'm a large in all of their shirts. The site lists a "size 3 / 40" and a "size 4 / 42"

Which equates to a large? The 3/40?

IIRC a 0 is XS(34), 1=Small(36), 2=Medium(38)... so yeah the 3 should be a BoO large

I have a tweed suit from last season that was. The pants in my sig are as well. I think it depends. I have seen more made in Italy lately though.

^This video pretty much explain it. Got myself a school boy blazer and a varsity this year. They fit so well!
