I'm 6' 2" about 190 pounds and medium fits me perfectly, at least in the oxford cloths.

5'9" and 170 lbs of pure muscle. Medium all day errday!

5'10 182lbs muscular, and Large is too big for me, hence my sale below. Don't own any M's yet, but plan on trying.

I'm 5'7" 170 pounds, good amount of muscle and some fat, mediums are good for me as well as I carry a good amount of weight in my thighs. There is some variation though so sometimes a M will be too tight for me

I tried on a polka dot shirt at Barney's yesterday and was surprised to learn that it did not have MOP buttons; instead the shirt had plain white plastic (?) buttons, smh.

isn't that the case with all GBVs?

Since 2009? maybe they have all been chalk buttons. The dress shirts should still have MOPs

^ I just remember watching a video or reading some tour of their facilities geared towards how they made their new "vintage line" with the new cut, etc.  And there was a part where they talked about buttons and they said specifically said (almost boasted) about their use of white chalk buttons.  Maybe their normal Gitman Bros line has the MOPs.  not sure.

 

Anyhoo, ever since I found epaulet, been phasing out all my GBV shirts for EP.  Same level of quality materials but arguably better construction and definitely a better fit and MOPs.

If it is, I wasn't aware.

Are white chalk buttons...any good? I mean I know what they are, but know nothing about them.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
EP stands for...epaulet?

Honestly, I'm not sure either.  I have about 10 GBV shirts and I think they all have white chalk buttons.  But I;m not 100% sure, and plus, it doesn't bother me.  Chalk buttons aren't a deal-breaker, but if all things were equal, and I had a choice, of course I would go with MOP.

Just ordered the yellow oxford from Context. I'm 6'4" 175lbs and went with a L. I don't like my shirts too tight and I have pretty wide shoulders so I'm hoping I sized right.

So wait a second, they're selling shirts for over $120 a pop and they don't have MOP buttons?

I bought two recently, just got one and the other is in the mail; when I go home I'll check it. I can see myself becoming an even bigger fan of Epaulet, their OCBDs are $130.

Glad I didn't grab a couple of the Gitman's from Acrimony's sale. Pretty disappointing.

I like Gitman's chalk buttons, they are nice. I do have one shirt with plastic buttons from them and those aren't so great. I've had Epaulet shirts too and while their buttons were MOP they were super thin and I really didn't care for them at all. For a dress shirt I can see the appeal of nice iridescent MOP buttons but on my casual Gitmans I'll take the thick chalk buttons any day.

thoogsby- I'm guessing large will be pretty big on you, but at your height I think medium would be short in the sleeves so it may be the best you're going to do. I'm 5'11" and have 30lbs on you though and I find the larges to be a nice comfortable fit that isn't terribly slim.

^ Yeah man! I don't really care for them having some MOP buttons, I think they would look funny on the shirts.
But that weak ass yellow plastic shit that I have on my blue oxford is well, FUCKING WEAK!

I love the matte chalk buttons. I think they look really good against they shirts. Gitman never emailed me back about getting some either, could've at least said "HELL NO."

Yeah I wear my Gitmans pretty casually I don't think I'd ever wear one for anything business casual or up
