There is! Either store (Valencia and Chestnut) will gladly provide our custom shirting service. It takes 20-30 minutes, which includes taking your measurements and walking you through the various options available to you.

 

Since you mentioned our custom shirting program, I want to let everyone know that we're currently developing an option to schedule an appointment at either store from the website. You'll be able to pick your time, place, and your favorite TS employee. So, just FYI for everyone.

 

Glad you guys are digging the size charts so far! I'm glad to have Phase 2 up and running. We'll be including illustrations for where to measure soon!

 

Feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions, or just want to talk about visual design. Or football. Or Formula 1. Or video games.


Thanks man, much appreciated.

I didn't like it so much at first when I took the survey but the khaki western has grown on me.

Can we get an update on the expected delivery for the meridian jacket?

TS versus Gustin - any thoughts / consensus? specifically with regards to shirts. they both have a nice blackwatch swatch that would wear well during the winter, pricing is similar, just wondering if anybody has both and any differences between these types of services.

 

Thanks!

I prefer TS due to the fit, though I don't own the Yosemite shirt. Other TS buttondowns fit better than Gustin for my body type (doesn't mean Gustin's are bad though). There are little details w/ TS shirts that you're not gonna get with Gustin, but I think with the blackwatch it comes down to which shirt design you like.

I think I like TS construction better. I own far too many Gustin shirts due to the varying fabrics, but I think TS' approach is slower, but more methodical. There are definitely pros and cons to that. Fit-wise... If you like the side scoops, Gustin is quite good. TS customer service and returns are (and always have been) better, especially since the Thompson brothers quit (they were awesome like TS' Mike and Mina are). Point is, TS will be better built and look better, but Gustin we'll have more fabrics more often. Like I said, pros and cons.

Also, TS cuffs are smaller.

Agree about TS construction, but I've never had an issue w/ Gustin's so didn't wanna bash. Gustin has bigger cuffs but also offers an inner button, which I really wish other brands would do as I like them tight.

Definitely don't wanna knock anyone. I will continue to buy from both companies until I realize I've spent too much :-p

Same people running it for TS (and Gustin). I meant the CS people (for TS) are awesome. Gustin lost some good people about a year or so ago.

Cotton sweaters look pretty nice. 26inches top to bottom on an XL 44 seems hella short even for a sweater. Your crew sweatshirts are about 28-29 inches. Is that correct? Hoping for 28-29 again. Have super consistant sizing with your stuff and hoping it stays that way.

^ I think the overall construction on the TS shirts are better but the forearms on TS shirts are very snug on me..

And then choose accordingly.

@JilSlander @Bryanb55 the size charts can get complicated but realize you SHOULDN'T look to chest and assume the measurement = your chest size. That's why we have our size hierarchy like it is and went to the simple charts for a while.

 

If you're a 42, a 42 chest would be so tight you'd look like the incredible hulk. We include detailed measurements in the hopes things are easier but you can safely order based on your chest size and sizing will work. If not, return it and we're working on a new automated returns so that wouldn't be a pain.

 

The detailed measurements can help if you're looking elsewhere, wondering if you want to size up for a shirt jacket (because you'll wear layers underneath), etc. But across the board, in the year I've been a part of TS, I've never wavered from a 40, no matter what the shirt is made out of unless a mistake was made (which we will let you know, unfortunately it's a part of pushing new fabrics and styles at the pace we do).

 

I hope the new size charts are an improvement. But if not, please please let us know how we can make em easier.
