Thanks. I think I will need something bigger then a 21" but reading a bunch sites, people have the large anywhere from 23 to 24"!!! That is huge even by normal Gitman standards.

What size should I get in Gitman Vintage? I'm 5'7 180lbs, going up to 185lbs.. powerlifter, muscular, fat build however you want to look at it.

I'm thinking a Medium, but MAAYBBEE a large?

I'm 5'7", 155#, and 15.5" neck. A medium is slim. You're probably going to end up a large.

large will be too long. IMO other brands might be better with your build. I think you run the risk of swimming in a large. I am 6'2" ~175-180 and large is often too big and needs to be taken in.

Ah.. silly me for some reason I thought Gitman Vintage was a stockier cut.. Hmm what brands should I start trying? Something for stocky people, nice fabric, made in america. this sucks btw

Large is huge, try a medium. I'm 6' 194# and fit a medium, though it's very slim fitting through the chest.

Well I got a medium coming this week. For some reason I can still fit into semi slim shirts, although pants are out of the question. I think it's because I have a short torso and naturally narrow shoulders despite my best attempts..

I copped a used small gitman and am a size small in gitman and most brands of shirts?

Makes it hard to get an accurate measurement I think. And there is some variation from shirt to shirt, typically based around fabric (I the basic oxfords fit pretty consistent with each other, same with the overdyes and chambrays). You should probably tell us what shirt you're looking at and maybe somebody has experience with how it fits and can let you know.

The jump from medium to large is pretty big in Gitman. Larges are huge on me right now and mediums fit pretty good but are just a little tighter than I would like in the chest and shoulders. I'm in the process of selling all my larges and getting new mediums but I have to watch as some are just too small. Have had good luck with basic oxfords, chambrays, and overdyes though.

 

Interesting observation.  Funny thing is, my first GBV shirt, from the 'Bay, I got it in Large and upon trying it on, wasn't hugely impressed with the fit, unlike how I was with BoO sometime later.  (I was, however, impressed with the weight and quality of the fabric compared to previous OCBDs I owned.)  And this season when I copped that llama flannel, from an overseas store, I agonized similarly over again ordering a Large and not a Medium.   But when it got here, and I tried it on, I was impressed by how trim it was in the chest and how overall slim it was for me.  (6' 2'', 190, 40-41 chest.)  I am quite positive I could have not have sized down on the thing, though it still does billow in the back.  Even though I"m not a huge fan of that, I don't think I'm going to try to get my tailor to sew down the box pleat, because I think the playfulness of the print doesn't quite call for it being ultra-fitted.  In any case, I'm just echoing the point that GBV is wildly inconsistent, from batch to batch, season to season.

Yeah, I have a bunch of GBV shirts from this season, and the llama flannel fits snugger than the rest of them (also have it in the L). It actually fits much better for me than the others, which I need to have tailored.

Even with all the sizing inconsistencies there are guaranteed measurements for each shirt at Unionmade, Epaulet and many other stores where you can check to see how sizing works. As long as you aren't asking idiots like Barneys SAs the store should be able to tell you how each shirt fits

Finally found a red buffalo plaid flannel on sale. So stoked about that.
post #3268 of 4033
How much was the buffalo check?

$123 (with SF discount) from Roden Gray. Glad I jumped on it when I did, only XL and S left.

Got my medium. Want to try out a large. The chest is pretty close to pulling but theres a good amount of room in the back, which is weird though because I am barrel chested but my back is way more developed than my front. Shoulders and everything else fit great, it's not pulling or when I sit down it doesnt pull but its darn close.

Fit actually looks a lot like this, except i have way better posture
