Yeah I'm in the $80 range, although if it's a fabric I really want I'll pay more (ie. Red/White/Blue Gingham this season and blackwatch from F/W 11)

If I could do it all over, I'd probably cheap out on the basic colored oxfords I bought and save the money for the more interesting fabrics. Oh well.

This is mostly the case. $150 is pretty much the highest limit I'd pay for GBV, which is very rarely, and this only applies to patterns I really, really like (Dragonfly, florals). Even then, it seems pretty much every shirt makes it on sale.

I've been hitting the gym pretty consistently for a couple months now - thusly I am now between sizes. Small is just a tad too tight and medium (at least most of them) fit like a tent. Weird.

I was able to pull off some of the Japanese fabrics in medium and somehow the short sleeve seem to be better. I'll have to commit to gaining that extra 5 lbs and just go medium from now on.

Or medium Epaulet/BoO. Gitman is too big a gap.

Paid anywhere from $90 ( solid color ocbd) to almost $200 for a design that I find really appealing, and that won't last till sale season. BOO may be overpriced and I routinely pay $150 for their shirts on sale, but the cut looks MTM on me ...

Net is without shipping, VAT and customs. And gross is with all the things i mentioned.

 

I can never buy a GBV shirt for under $100 because of my location, where they don't even sell GBV shirts, so I have to import the shirts and pay the fees. The cheapest Gitman shirt I ever bought was from MyHabit and the gross amount was $111.

Well, I never buy GBV outside of the US, so there are no duties, and shipping is usually pretty low.

I like GBV shirts better than BoO. BoO's sides are cut too high and short it often ends up looking strange. Their fabrics are weak at times too.

I tend to get my GBV shirts with a full pleat down the center, removing the original box pleat. It pretty much becomes my perfect shirts: great quality fabrics, relatively cheap including alterations, and length that is suitable to my tastes.

Does the full box pleat correct the "unfittedness" in the lower body? Or are you saying its just a plain pleat like a back dart but just one all the way down?

I think he means he gets the Gitman shirts pleated like BoO, with that thick double sided pleat down the middle

^^ Yes, thanks for making that clearer. By removing the pleat this way, the shirt becomes quite a bit slimmer throughout (since you're essentially taking away 1-2 inches of fabric). Removal of the original pleat without doing the BoO thing is possible as well and makes the shirt have a good silhouette, but this is much more time consuming and thus, more expensive.

I think the lower body is fine, I don't have much of a problem with the scalloped hem flaring like some people do, I guess. My problem is the upper body...the original pleat is so fucking big that it just looks awful from any angle that isn't looking straight at the front. It's specifically Gitman too, I have OL and Nanamica shirts with box pleats that aren't nearly as gigantic.

Nitty Gritty has some GBV on sale, though it's $100 + on most, I think the sub-$100 ones are sold out. but there are some Glanshirt shirts available for 50% OFF ($80 PPD to US)
