I can't comment on how it relates to TB or BoO, but I really love the O&S shirts. I own their US-made shirts from previous seasons as well as a few more recent ones from Italy, and I definitely prefer the Italy ones over the US ones. Part of it may have to do with what seems like slight adjustments to the fit that they've made, but I find that they fit me much better and have a better shape. I only cold wash and hang dry, but I haven't had any issues with construction either. Obviously not a shirt I'm going to wear out hiking, but they stand up to daily wear quite well in my experience.

 

They've definitely gotten more adventurous with their fabrics and patterns in recent seasons, but depending on what price you're looking at, they can be a solid deal.

 

If helpful, I typically wear a small in GBV and medium in Epaulet and have been taking a medium in Ovadia as of late. Hope that helps a bit.

Thanks for the info. Could you elaborate more on the change if fit in the Made in Italy shirts?

Sorry about the delay in response.

 

I mostly own their "Midwood" sport shirt fit and have at least one shirt from every other season or so for the past few years. I've noticed the sleeves were shortened (in a good way; they were a tad long) from the first few seasons to about a year ago, and then the length changed to a more manageable length to be worn tucked or untucked during maybe the last year or so.

 

This season, I found the waist to be a tad more tapered (no darts, but still slim), so I've sized up from small to medium. I probably needed to go to a medium anyway to get a little more room in the shoulders and chest, but I now find the waist to be perfect and the shoulders/chest not too much larger than the small to where it's too big. The latest shirts also seemed to have nailed the perfect length for me in sleeve and body.

 

It's definitely still a slimmer fit (hence my shift to medium), but overall very minor changes. Not everyone's cup of tea, but I find myself finding something I like every season it seems.

 

My 2 cents. Hope it helps.

What happened to this brand? They used to make some really nice tailored pieces. Now it's just weird looking emo punk gothic

^^ I have a navy double breasted jacket from them (possibly aw12). Easily one of my best jacket. Their collections were small to begin with and each items were available in a very limited quantities. Full price was very expensive. The jacket I have had a rrp of $1800 usd. Most items were unsold and ended up in places like Gilt. And cleared at 70% off prices. Their trousers were $350-$395. Too many choices around that price bracket. All this contributed towards the brands doom.
