Any chance you could post a fit pic, or at least a pic? Context saturates the hell out of their photos so it's really hard to tell.

There are a lot of pompous douchefags on this forum, ill give you that. But Im here because I care about the fit, construction, and appearance of my clothes, not what the fucking buttons are made of. Its the same reason I dont care whether my car's wheel bolts are made out of steel or aluminum: im not a jerkoff.

I ordered it from Context prior to seeing it in person at Barneys. I don't think it ships for some time, so not fit pics yet. Sorry.

I think you're taking offense too quickly. People like quality and part of quality is the various details that go into making the product. For shirts that would be things like not only fabric and fit, but construction details like butterfly gussets, the various types of yokes and pleats, single needle stitching, and other details like the kind of material the buttons are made from. Nice buttons feel nicer when you button up shirts, just like nice fabrics feel nicer when you wear them. There's nothing wrong with appreciating little details like that. It shows that whoever made the shirts weren't out to cut corners.

Same thing with suits (eg surgeon cuffs, canvassing, kissing buttons), laptops (is the fn and control button place where you like them, is there bloatwear), jeans (flat felled seams, chain stitch, natural indigo), guitars (what kind of wood, mop inlays), and we could go on for whatever product is out there. People appreciate details. Nothing wrong with that when you're paying for quality products.

rofl. Who is the douchebag here, us for caring about how much thought was put into our clothes, or you for judging us that we are not superficial enough.

The guys at Context mentioned that it varies on the shirts, but that Gitman uses plastic, shell, and even rubber. That's not saying these are the only buttons they use, but at least those are a few.

I can understand the desire for high quality details like mop buttons, but anyone who thinks you should 'be ashamed' for not being able to distinguish the different types is an intolerable shithead who should die in a housefire. If you're that concerned about the buttons on your shirt you're living your life wrong.

You.

And that's not even remotely what was implied.

hahaha I was just joking you dumbf**K. thanks for the life advice, I am more tolerable in real life I assure you, at the very least more so than you.


On a serious note, I just got my first Gitman shirt in a size S. It fits me great and looks really, really good. The only complaint I have is that the armholes seem to be cut rather low and the inseam of the sleeves is rather short. Therefore when I raise my arm above 90 degrees, it pulls on the entire shirt in a non-flattering way. Anyone else have this problem? It seems "more" noticeable than some of my other dress shirts from APC, Uniqlo, and J crew.

I did notice these same exact quirks you describe, but I personally think that extra fabric at the armholes helps not make the chest as constricting on me as say BoO in the same size so I don't mind it. As far as the sleeves go, I did notice that they are a tad shorter than average with my experiences in other brands in the same size, but I don't mind that either as I mostly roll my sleeves anyway. When I tuck my oxford in, I don't get the same pull problem as when I have the shirt untucked for casual wear.

I do know the oxford fabric they use though, feels like it can stop bullets.
