Hey all, does anyone have experience with the sizing of O&S shoes? I usually wear an 8.5 or 9D dress shoes and was hoping these would fit similarly. 

 

I have an O&S midwood shirt and I have to say the quality is really incredible. Sure, the stuff is expensive, but it is very nicely made and the feel of the shirt is pretty great. It might be my all time favorite shirt. I don't get why everyone is hatin; the sale prices make the pieces more than worth it.

Anyone know of any Italian factories that work for O&S - is the quality on par with Sargent?

Specifically, I'm wondering who made these: http://chcmshop.com/item-detail/?group=shoes&id=46

anyone here picked up the combat jacket? I'd like to know how people feel about it's construction as I am planning to pick one up. Is it better for light layering, or could it serve any use being over a sweater in the cold?

just a quick review of their jacket. Picked up a double breasted blazer 2 week ago. Fabric is fantastic. Details are great. The sleeves are just 1/3 inches short - but I have extra long arms ! Jacket length is good and classic cut. Light padding around shoulder. Lapels are big and just right !

I'm looking at picking up a summer suit by Ovadia and Sons. My chest is 39", and I'm 5'10", 160 lbs. Can anyone speak to whether the size 38 or 40 would be a better fit?

My chest measures at 37” and waist 27”. 5’10” and 117 lb and have rather long arms and wide shoulder.
My jacket pictured above is in 36R. Cut is slim drop 7. And actual measurements adds about 4 inches. Armholes are high and sleeves are really slim . Tag 36 Has 40 inch chest. length is good(for DB)- 29" . But For me the sleeves are a bit too short. I need abut ¾ of an inch.
I would say go for 40R.

Anyone knows who makes Ovadia & Sons "made in italy" shoes? I thought Alfred Sargent made their shoes, but "made it italy" excludes them from possible makers. It's these particular shoes I'm interested in http://www.ovadiaandsons.com/shop/products/Snuff-Suede-Bedford-Single-Buckle-Shoe.html

Not to hijack the thread, but Carson Street markdowns were pretty great. Had the O&S monks been in stock in my size I definitely would have bought.

The shoes are REALLY nice. I'd put them on par with C&J (benchgrade) or Carmina.

I own 4 shirts with one more on the way. I take a small in Ovadia and a small in Gitman vintage as well. Gitman's fit ranges for me from just right to a little snug, so in most cases the Ovadia fit is similar or a little looser in the body compared to Gitman. Nothing too extreme.

 

In terms of quality, I really like them. That being said, their shirts seem to be on the dressier side (longer hem; not too long, just longer than Gitman) and softer fabrics. Even their oxfords have a soft hand and feel washed. I'll probably continue to buy both brands, as I enjoy my Gitman's as well. Just depends what you're looking for and how you build out your wardrobe.

 

My usual outfits consist of untucked sport shirts and chinos, so both work well for me. That being said, I can still reach for my Ovadia's in a tucked-in-and-sport-coat situation too. Hope that helps!
