To me, the regular and overdyed oxfords have the exact same fit. Medium is snug and slim, large is large and blousy.

They are slim if you have a medium to stocky build. I have a slim build, and my GBV shirts are not particularly slim fitting. Some of the lighter fabrics, like the linens, wind up being slimmer after washing, though.


My striped linen chambray shirt from Acrimony quickly became my favorite shirt.

people with a slim build should wear blousy, full cut shirts. slim fit just accentuates their body type, making it look scrawny. it needs to be balanced. ymmv.

I agree, to a degree. Too full of a cut looks like I'm wearing my Dad's clothes, but I have definitely shied away from slim fit the past year or so.

They are slimmer-fitted at the waist, but they are slightly wider in the shoulders than any M or vanity-S size shirt that I have. The more correct term for the fit would be "tailored" or "athletic".

Only have a couple GBV shirts, but this is what I've noticed also. 

 

I have an athletic physique (broad shoulders, muscular back, small waist, etc) and GBV's fit perfect!!! (close second on fit would be Norse Projects shirts)

I'm in the same boat, shoulders on Gitmans are just a tiny bit big but other than that fit is perfect. I'm short as well so it's a good length for casual shirts

Yep, same here. Other than being a little billow-y on me, I'm 100% happy with their stuff.

If only they were consistent on the sizing...

I kind of really like the Purple Llama Patterned Chamois Buttondown Shirt...
post #2910 of 4038
I shouldn't like that heinous Llama print as much as I do, but damn it, I've caught myself thinking about it several times since I saw it on your site this morning.

BTW, there's a small error in the write-up for that shirt:

It's soft enough to be your favorite fall weather flannel, yet thick enough to double a as an over-shirt.
