Am I alone in preferring the older black watch pattern (second photo) has anyone compared both in person? i believe it was a lighter oxford cloth to the newer hopsack, personally wish they reissued the older one

just curious what do you guys do with the box pleat in the back? do you guys stitch it close or just wear it as is?

Yeah the old pattern is the nicer blackwatch pattern EVER in my opinion. Next chance there is a custom shirting event, I'm going to get a few shirts made as well as pants and a jacket. Or hope MyHabit has one pop up in my size

dont you guys get the giant balloon effect in the back when tucking in? haha or is this just me?

I've started buying Gitmans in Medium and then doing a full back pleat like BoO. Makes them fit me perfectly - small is a little too tight and medium too big.

How does Gitman fit? I am really skinny in the upper waist so things tend to look like I am swimming in them. I was looking at the Japanese leaf print in a medium. I can never really tell from the pit to pit whether or not it's slim fitting.

You really have to check the online measurements for each. they can vary so much depending on the fabric. Can't wait for the Japanese pin dot and the red/white plaid hop sack to be delivered.

That's my point just with the pit to pit measurement online doesn't really give me an idea if it's slim or not. The online measurements aren't all that helpful sometimes.

You can also compare the online measurements with shirts you already have. If your shirts are bigger or wider around the chest, then the gitmans are slimmer than yours.

If you're super skinny Gitman really isn't cut for you in most cases at Size M. Switch to Gant Rugger or Thom Browne or something like that
