Stuff looks great on Context but they're already selling out in a lot of sizes. What are some other stockists of the brand?

The fit looks great on Context, but pretty terrible on Fred Segal Trend. At those price points, the cut is seemingly one of the bigger selling points. I'd say it's a matter of finding the right size, but the models on FST are wearing mediums and they still look sloppy.

The shirts look a LOT darker on Context, too. I went from hating that purple/green/yellow L/S number last night to being pissed when I saw it was sold out in my size tonight thanks to the pictures on Context. The colors look much lighter on FST; so much that I'm back to thinking most of these would look terrible on me. Bummer.

robin and jsqfunk, thanks for the links.

blank, just as a reference, which brands fit you well?

Gitman's been getting a lot of hype on a bunch of blogs recently.

Could be a bad sign, many of those bloggers often have no idea what they're talking about.

I can pull off a Band of Outsiders large. A Gitman medium was far too loose throughout. But I'm not 100% sure I tried on the same shirts that have now popped up at 1,000 retailers online. I tried some on at Bloomingdales in Soho.

If the fit is slim, the length seems pretty long for short fools like me.

fred segals pictures are terrible... like with this one: do they seriously button one collar button and not the other? http://www.fredsegaltrend.com/Gitman...%20pattern.htm

Looks like most of the colors online are brighter than in real life. The blue/red check is darker when I saw it in person at Blackbird, but I was still into it. The shirt is a little longer than most of the slim brands on SF, but I think it still works as a nice summer casual shirt. Was digging the fabric, perfect soft madras.

Would like to see the purple/yellow one in person. This looks interesting as well from the Carlton's site, purple/black:

Stuff always looks great on Context. They take pretty photos. Sadly, not everything looks as nice in person as it does on their site.

I have an oxford I bought from sFer poodlerock. Had Nordstrom tags. I like the fit, but it's definitely not comparable to BoO. My gitman vintage 16/L has wider shoulders and a bigger chest than my BoO XLs, and is about the same length. I like it, but at a glance it's not particularly special.

^^You got a BoO? Crazy, boo always looks like cropped midget wear to me.. any pics of you wearing it?
