i havent checked any out this season and cuts change, but sizing down is never the right direction satisfied.gif
post #182 of 206

I've come across a few people saying that they found the forearms tight. While the sleeve does slim towards the cuff, I've never found them constricting on any of the shirts I've tried on even if I size down

Elbow up everything fits really strangely -- tapers very hard from the elbow.

The sizing has been consistent through the seasons and fabrics (that I've tried) at least. I don't know you you can size down, I'm not particularly fit, fat, or thin and they fit incredibly tight there which is such a weird part of the pattern compared to the rest of the shirt

You're right on that it's a shame, the outers don't reflect the same thought in patterning and the fabrics they've used feel a bit wasted on what is almost right on

His cuts have always been very peculiar, luckily my two shirts fit well but yes the forearms which is strange for a german brand.

I really can't imagine sizing down on anything Leder. Some of the shirts have a boxier cut but sizing down isn't a good idea - if someone needs a slimmer fit, spending $30 on altering the sides/body is a better approach.

I'm glad I'm not imagining the issues with the fit of the sleeves. I think one of the issues is that there are no pleats or shirring at the cuffs, and the cuffs themselves seem pretty small. It seems like a lot of Leder is made for the Japanese market, with slimmer arms and narrower shoulders. I've had other shirts from Japan that have oddly slim arms.

I compared your measurements for the small and medium, and the only noticeable differences were the body width. So, I went with the small so I didn't have to take in the sides. Everywhere else on the shirt fits great, but the forearms are so slim I can't roll them up.

Sizing down on the Deustchleder jacket worked out perfectly. It's a great fit all around, and not particularly slim anywhere.

i have no complaints on the leder shirt fit. i took a small and i like how sleeves stack a bit.

shoulders are a bit tight but thats expected on a dress shirt i guess.

What was the inspiration for this season's collection? I know he's doing the key thing, but usually his collections are inspired by a particular time and place in German history.

From what I understand, this time it really is just inspiration from the past 30 collections, culminating in the chest full of bits and the keys.

We've got a single breasted Deutschleder coat in XL this season, a first for Leder! (In fact, we have almost every style in XL, a special request by us)
