Are you talking about the zip up/button up flannel? If you are, it is actually supposed to be oversized, it's the only "shirting" I own from them and fits me pretty well at 6'2", 205. It is slightly longer and roomier in the middle though, but it seems like it is supposed to be as it's an overshirt/CPO type of deal. The mac coat fits me the same way (roomy in the waist but real snug in the back/chest/shoulders.
No, I'm talking about the button down, though I do know the shirt jacket you're talking about. It's a nice piece.
This is the one I'm talking about. Though the one I have has no button down collar and the colorblock effect is very subtle in comparison to the photos. I don't think many stockists carried this shirt. It's not a flannel at all.
FYI, I recently got a couple of button down oxfords tailored. They were too long and there was too much room in the body. I got them taken in at the sides (tapering and flaring slightly) and hemmed up a little bit, the tailor was well aware of not taking off too much length and did so based on the bottom button. Also, the tailor maintained the subtle hem line as I advised that I would only be wearing them untucked. I was extremely satisfied with the tailoring and finishing, the seams and thread are perfectly matched up and there's no way one could even tell they were tailored. It was expensive but worth it in my opinion, $40 per shirt.
I also feel that W+H shirts are slim in the arms but in the body they're more of a regular fit.
@Rommel thanks for sharing. I agree with your assessment of the sizing. Hopefully I can find a good tailor that will do the same for me. I think I need about 2-3 inches off the length which concerns me a bit. I really like the construction of the shirt along the hem. I just hope the tailor can follow the same shape so it wears well untucked.
Yeh, I'm nowhere near a stockist. But Gentry have a pretty big discount on the blazer right now in L and XL.
