Yes - check the measurements lol.

FWIW, I'm an L in ALL W+H tops expect the oxfords, which I'm an M.

Measure your best fitting shirt then ask the retailer for measurements for the shirt you want. It should get you close.

Yeah, size oxfords down. They're really slim this season, however.

Thanks all. And yeh I have no fucking clue how to measure tops. Pants, yeah I have no problems. But measuring shit like pit to pit and neck to sleeve and whatever... I go an measure something and then when I try and compare it I am NOWHERE NEAR what they say. Like I'll measure something at 33" and they will measure it at 22".

Realistically, the only measurement that really matters is the shoulders. And luckily for me, the W+H oxfords this year are a perfect fit in that department.

I respectfully disagree. Sleeve length and neck size are critical. So are pit-to-pit, waist, and body length. Sleeve and cuff width is also pretty important. Some of these can be fixed at the tailor's, but I don't see much point in spending $150 - 200 on a standard shirt, then throwing more money into fixing the fit.  

 

Even allowing for preferences, no shirt offered in 4-5 sizes will fit as well as good mtm. Fabric, styling, and exclusivity all figure into the price, but none of those will make a shirt fit "better"

I would say arms too..I've had dress shirts that fit shoulders but we're too tight on arms. Very uncomfortable.

It fit boxy in my size, Medium.
Small was too small.

Where to find a good wool winter coat?

let me know when you find a shirt that fits to your specs in ptp, waist, length, sleeve and cuff width (?) off the rack

So does W&H generally run true to size on their outerwear? Or slim like their shirts.
I was looking at a fall puffer jacket but XL seems like it'd be a size to big even though it's filled and I'm generally a large in most other brands, what you guys think?

Any idea where to find the burgundy oxford in a size M?

Gravitypope and Nomad have it in the oxblood/black colourblock. I might drop by Gravitypope this weekend; they sometimes have more stock in-store than online, so I can check for you.

el Bert, I find their shirting tends to be consistent with their outerwear. I'm a consistent S in their tees, henleys, hoodies, sweatshirts, but I'm between a S and XS in their shirting and outerwear, mostly because they tend to cut them more generously at the armholes and waist.

Hey does anyone know if Nomad is doing that "Friends and Family discount" weekend in a week or two? I remember last year they did that sale either the second or third weekend of November. They had 20% off F/W season stuff online and in store.

Most webstores will be having sales for Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
