post #28066 of 36405

if this is any help, i got a size 5 ts(s) coat and usually wear XL. fit is spot on.

 

now, can someone comment on minotaur sizing? is it really one size small? 

post #28067 of 36405
A couple questions:

1. Scott and Charters lambswool crew neck: I wear a size L in Inis and it fits pretty well. Would L work in S&C?

2. Barbanera: I am a 41.5 Vass F-last. I am 41 Buttero tannino low. Both are pretty perfect fits. What's my right Barbanera size?

Thanks!

1.  I would take the same size

2.  I'd say that 8 is the right place to start

It depends a little on the piece - the waxed cotton one in XL should work (I'm also ts(s) 5).  But the gradient coat in XL will feel quite snug

ah, thats good to know. the measurements seemed small but just wanted to make sure since its such an awesome piece. XL is sold out anyways... i emailed minotaur and they said they do make XXL but not for the gradient coat

First but definitely not the last Inglese shirt! Will probably size down one in the future, this one is OK in the neck, a tiny bit big in the shoulders, but a bit large through the chest. Quality is amazing, and that collar roll!

Wouldn't normally pair with denim but too anxious to wear it!

^shoulders/chest look pretty good in that pic tbh. If the neck is good and you wanted to size down in the body you might want to just do MTM. But looks good imho
post #28073 of 36405
I'd agree. Not sure I see a reason to size down. Definitely cold wash and hang dry that one a few times and see what you think as you wear it. Also looks good with denim.

Also, it's easy and cheap to have the torso slimmed a bit. Can't fix too-small necknor shoulders.

Lol. I would say you could size down one without ill effect unless the collar is already borderline tight as is. Any shrinkage of the collar after cold wash can be stretched out again when ironing.

Just by ironing the collar?

I agree w DeSense. You can size down one on the next order.

Shirt still humid ideally, lay out flat, apply iron while pulling at either end (one after the other, not simultaneously, unless you have an extra arm)?

Apart from maybe flannels or polymixes (long time ago) I haven't experienced any collar shrinking, not even when given to a cleaner (wash, dry, iron).

Definitely size down next time. For a more casual shirt though, that one will do just fine!
