I usually take BB1 (for Black Fleece) and Small or 15/33-34 for others shirts.

I'm afraid Small could fit too small or short (especially the sleeves).

Thanks for your help.

I am a BB1 in Black Fleece, small in Gitman Vintage, and 15-33 in the Extra Slim Fit BB shirts for comparison. The sleeves on Gitman are generally a tad on the short side, but since I generally roll up my sleeves I don't find it to be an issue. If you plan to pair it with suit or blazer, it could be more noticeable.

I recently bought a navy overdyed,haven got to wear it yet. I've noticed the length on one side of the shirt is longer than the other (shall let the pictures do the talking...)

 

apologies for the poor image...

button up to the last button,one side is longer than the other...anyone has the same issue with their shirts?

@ Luker, I have the exact same problem with a BD chambray. I couldn't return it, so I just decided not to worry about it. It is very disappoint though.

I think you can still get to the page via the many MyHabit links people posted

Luker- where did you buy that shirt?

As much as I enjoy wearing the couple of Gitman shirts I own, I can't help but think we are at the peak of a 'Gitman bubble' right now. Demand is high and they can be found nearly everywhere, but, really, I think the quality has never quite matched the retail price. I haven't been that impressed with the cut and construction of Gitman shirts. I know of at least a couple shops that have taken the Gitman Vintage cut and made some adjustments (smaller armholes, longer sides, slightly shorter collar, better construction) to offer a much better shirt, often at a lower price.

The MyHabit sale hasn't helped, either. It seems like Gitman sold off the odds and ends, including the irregulars, to HyHabit, which sent out random shirts to some people in the wrong color or sleeve length or odd cut. Hell, even Inventory doesn't currently sell Gitman, which must mean it's on its way out. (8)

Edit: and only an hour later, I buy another shirt shog[1].gif I've been wanting a couple more summer shirts, and this linen stripe caught my eye.

Not having read the entire thread, and no owning a single Girman shirt, I purchased one from Acrimony for around $80 plus with Pointer shoes.

 

Should have thought about it before I pulled the plug, but how is the fit and quality on these shirts? I assume they're SF approved as there is an entire thread where people seem to really like the brand.

Overall, I think the quality is good, but I wouldn't pay full retail. Fit is not particularly slim, but also not too boxy.

imo, Fabric is their strong point.  Everything else is sort of hit or miss.  You have the cheap chalk buttons and sizing that's all over the place.  Plus, the back billows b/c of the box pleat and dartless back.
