Going to get a couple flannels tailored today. They do use fucking nice materials, and have some awesome color combos and patterns. Once tailored they are some of my favorite flannels. If they had a better fit off the rack i'd go as far as to say they are some of the nicest flannels out there. I still think they are, kind of a pain in the ass to get them tailored, but worth it.
I have no experience with the 1950's fit. Looks like it is a bit more tailored. I'm just referring to 1940's.

Yea I could see that - somewhere in between BoO and OL in length would be perfect. where do you get most of your OL stuff?

I have a couple of their flannels. Love the fit off the rack, but that's probably just me. Had them for almost two years and with regular wear the material still feels the same as when I bought it, which can't be said for many cheaper flannels which stiffen up usually.

I've bought it from TBS and from OL directly. 20% off vat plus usually good shipping rates makes it the same or less than it is in the US.

I haven't bought anything yet this season. I actually thought their button downs/flannels were better last fall.

I think it was part of this A/W but I really like the brown flannel 'Generation' button up, haven't found it stocked in North America though only a few UK spots.

received the shirt today. Top notch fabric but unless you have stick like arms this shirt may not fit. Unfortunately, I'm returning it.

Surprised, OL tends to fit roomy. Do you have larger than average arms and call anything average or slightly built stick-like? Or, do you have normal to athletic arms and it is really that slim? Wondering because sometimes people exaggerate the circumstances, and I've never found an OL that is that slim.

^ I usually take a M but got a L and I don't have big guns, just average guy guns but had a hard time getting them in the sleeve. And the fabric is not all cotton, tag says 86% wool and 14% cotton. LIke I said, the material is top notch, nice buttons, and I like the way the pocket is sewn - damn shame it doesn't fit - I'm cryin' manly tears over this...musicboohoo[1].gif

Wow, that's wild. I generally take a small and my FW '10 OL flannels all fit larger than Gitman, Epaulet, or Wings + Horns in the same size. They must have switched up sizing on some of the shirts. I'm actually intrigued to try them on.

Something has gone terribly wrong with OL fits over the past season. I've ordered 4 OL shirts, and had to return those 4 shirts. The fits are just shrunken way out of control. And it's not me getting fat - I still have small and medium OL shirts from several season ago, which fit fine. With the current offerings the arms are now very shrunken, and the fit is very constricted around the upper chest. This is for the 1940s and placket button down fits. I'd have to size up to a L or XL to get a comfortable feeling in the arms/ chest (if I was lucky), but by that point it all looks a bit out of kilter. I guess they are chasing after the Boo market. This makes me so fucking sad. I loved the interesting materials, and styles, of shirts. But I can't wear a shirt I don't feel comfortable in. The fits just don't feel "easy" any more. I think they are targeting a very specific body type now. Basically you need the body of a anorexic 16 year old. It makes me sad, because I always saw OL as making shirts that were a bit timeless.

Yeah, the fit is strange now, at least on the 1940's.  the chest on a large was very tight.  Body and length were good, but the shoulders were very wide (>20").  Nobody that can fit into the chest will be able to fill out the shoulders.

I don't really think the fit has changed much. I've been a medium in all of their shirts for the last 4 seasons, and it seems most of our customers have been able to buy their regular size this season as well. The fits have always been a bit quirky, and their are so many different bodies and fabrics that it can be tough to keep track of. I just measured out a couple size small p2p's for example: 1940s chambray - 20.5, Placket Shirt oxford - 21.75, 1950s jaqueline print - 21.5, First Shirt polka dot - 20.5, 1950's grey melange - 22.25. As you can see, there is an unusual range, but even the slimmest options are looser than most other brands we carry. Definitely nowhere near Band Of Outsiders.
