    I'd probably size up, there is some stress around the back and a bit on the chest. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the feedback guys, I guess the shoulder creases are from the high arm holes? It doesn't feel too tight in the shoulders, even though it looks like it.

    I like the fabric too. I wonder if it will shrink after wash.

    your real problem is that the sleeves are going to be too short as soon as you wash it. they are borderline too short already.

    It looks good in the body, it's not too slim, but you may be better off with the next size up, so that's worth a try.

    Factory Finds delivered. Pleasant surprise as I forgot that I had four pairs coming. All Walts as follows:

    Dark sand basket weave. Very lightweight and I'm pleased with the pattern and color. I think these will make a good warm weather wool trouser.
    [​IMG]

    Chartreuse heavy tweed. This is some serious upholstery. Could wear this out into our ongoing snow right now happily.
    [​IMG]

    Emerald corduroy. Part of my shameless copying of Matt's fits. Great color.
    [​IMG]

    Wool-silk twill. So soft with a wonderful texture to the color from the weave.
    [​IMG]

    Now I wish they were all instantly hemmed. Sadly don't see myself getting to the tailor for at least a week...

    And I've got a serious problem since I'm now very excited about the next FF round... Lavender? I hope so.

    :cheers:

    I concur.

    I'm only 5'9'' and the length of the sleeve fits me nicely with a small so I can only imagine the sleeves being shorter on you.

    Thanks for your feedback Macktastic! Think I'm leaning towards Carmina.

    Anybody have any experience with the Large versus the XL shirts? Like how incremental of a difference is it? Thinking of trying to size down as the 2 XL's I have are a bit better than my Gitman Vintage Larges, but still could fit slightly better.

    I'm having the same conundrum. I used to wear Gitman larges but they've gotten to be too big. I can just barely fit into a Gitman medium but they are very slim fitting on me and I get a slight pulling across the chest (and then I go to put on a jacket and it pulls like crazy). Not sure if Epaulet large or XL would be better. May have an April trip to NYC in the works so I suppose I can wait and find out then.

    I find that I need to go up one size from Gitman in Epaulet shirts. Gitman L = Epaulet XL.

    Uh-oh. These things are almost a perfect fit on me.




    If I had any computer skills this is exactly what I would have done. I'd size up, cause it probably will shrink a touch, especially if you put it in the dryer.



    If it walks like a duck...



    Dude, ever since our denim convo we've been on the same wavelength. 10 oz French Blue Duck, Natty Chrom Boots...and the snorkel parka...the cold weather version of what you had on today.

    I just ordered a Gitman medium (I'm 6'0 and 160 lbs). I have no experience with Gitman or Epaulet shirts...so not sure if I should have went with small but I was fearing the arms would be too short on them. With the medium even if it isn't slim on me I can get it tailored. Lets see how it goes.

    I think you are going to be very happy with these.
    Thanks.
    I might not have to sell you mine. If there's fabric left, if may be possible for Mike to take an order for these when he does the next round of Factory Finds. Sand basket weave is definitely a warm weather weight and wool-silk twill isn't too heavy, so you wouldn't even be too far off the season cycle even with living in the desert... Can't hurt to ask.
