Michael Bastian for The Gap - Page 3

We'll see. I'd buy the roll shirt if it fits only because I hate spending a lot of money on white shirts, when IMO their purpose is to be worn outdoors in the spring and summer when you should be getting dirty (sitting, running, grilling, whatever).

Called the store and spoke to an associate. The lady told me that they're cumming in the next day. I hope Eason does post some pics because I am a bit wary about the fit. I agree with everyone here saying that their smalls are like tents.

too bad no xs sizes

The problem I have with brands like these is I have broad shoulders. So as I start to size down to something that actually fits my body the corners of the shoulders are now sitting on top of my traps. I like the look of the military shirt though, post pics already Eason.

Sorry about the red-eye, the camera did a number on me. For some reason, in the tucked pic, it looks a lot less slim than IRL. Just trust me on this. If anybody wants to give advice on how to wear this, tucked, untucked, or with what else, I'm all ears.

I vote for untucked. Also, from your crappy pics, it looks like the roll of the sleeves is too wide for my taste.

So the sleeves come pre-rolled...?

^ yes they do, but that shouldn't stop you from un or re rolling them.

i tried the military shirt on last night (village at corte madera if anyone cares), i am usually a Med in the fitted blue line, and these ran smaller in the shoulders and through the chest. however, the size jump from M to L was insane - hard to move in the M, literally swimming in the L. i personally hated the fabric - it was stiff and plasticy feeling as well as FAR too transparent to wear by itself and i could clearly see the rivets on my pockets. the buttons were loose as well. the only thing i liked about this was the fact that it was already darted in the back...but really that only costs 15 bucks to have done.

The OP officially passes on the roll-up and that "western"...in fact, anything Gap related till they get their act together.

cross-post from WAYWT...
I purchased the medium, which was a little bigger than I would like, but a hot wash and dry did the trick.

Anyone know if these shirts are preshrunk? It fits perfect right now, so I don't want it to shrink, although I know it's made of cotton.

not sure I get the appeal of these shirts other than "Michael Bastian" name attached to it. Is there some detail or spectacular cut that I'm not seeing that makes these desirable? if it didnt have "MB" on it, I dont think I'd look twice at them on the rack.

i like to wear military shirts tucked in - well, the main reason why i like military shirts is because they make your shoulders look big and are usually nicely fitted, so tucking them in just enhances that v-shaped sihlouette.

plus that one looks pretty fitted on you in that it tapers but blouses out at the bottom in a weird way - def tuck it in
