I"m sure the quality of the shirts are good, but what's the sense in spending $100+ on a shirt that still needs to be tailored at the end of the day? Untucked it might look ok.

My h&m shirt first better than what I seen from the pics on here.

I like the Gitman fit. I'm very much over the super slim fitted look and if that is what you're looking for there are plenty of other brands that do that very well. Gitman isn't trying to be that type of shirt I don't think, they are more relaxed, looser, and more of a traditional american fit. For a while I thought they were too baggy but I've grown to like their fit a lot over time.

That's pretty much where I'm at. if I'm going to spend $150-200 on a shirt, might as well go MTM or even bespoke. The biggest issue is finding the right fabrics, though. Now, my $30 Gitmans I picked up at Off 5th, no complaints.. smile.gif

^ Fabrics. Gitman uses awesome fabrics, plus construction is always solid.

Who is spending more than $100 on shitty basics like stripes and plaids and solids? There's Uniqlo for that. Uniqlo, however, doesn't have llamas or dragonflies or sick florals.

This is should have been said long ago.

darts with a box pleat looks horrendous idk why you dudes are recommending that...only think you can do is taper it more from the side seams or close the box pleat (which doesnt look too good to me either)

When you get it darted, you remove the box pleat...

Actually, I'd guess a fair amount of people grab the Gitman basics (I'm one of them). I'm required to wear black at work, and I've pretty much been using two Gitman black/grey chambray shirts for about 2 years now, and they've shown no signs of breaking down/fading yet. I work 6 days a week, about 8-10 hours each day, in a pretty active role (not sitting in an office). I don't own any Uniqlo to say if they hold up well to the same daily wear I need from a shirt.. But yes, Gitman thus far has the best fabrics and construction for a pretty for the prices you can usually get them at.

This is good to hear. I got my first GBV shirt recently and was hesitant to wear it too frequently, and thought I'd just wear them once every other week. Guess I will now wear it more often, thanks!

The prints and patterns are the eye catching shirts, but I see no reason not to get the basic oxfords if you like the fit. I like that the fit is a little more relaxed than BoO and I am in between sizes for Epaulet, so GBV is my go to

There's still a big gap between size M and L?
In the past I've tried a candy stripes in L and returned for its hugeness in chest, the size M was instead too slim.
post #2940 of 4053
Yeah, that was once a problem for me too. Medium was too small, large could be too big. Unfortunately large now fits me...but I'm working on that. Problem is even at my slimmest the medium was a good ways off from fitting in the chest/shoulder area. Wish they had something in between there.
