    heads up! ss madras in medium!

    http://www.contextclothing.com/item.php?id=921



    Mine, all mine [​IMG] I almost quit on finding this shirt today, since Detour e-mailed me that they have been trying to get more for weeks and just heard back that it will no longer be available.

    Thanks for the heads up. If the medium is a bit large, I'm sure I can find a taker on Buy&Sell.

    Length on these is crazy not to mention the huge jumps in sizing across the chest.

    Agreed. The medium oxfords fit me fine in the chest & shoulders, I'm guessing b/c the material is thicker. The shirt will definitely need a hem.

    The madras will be a thinner material, but I'm hoping it still works.

    I must say, I've been very impressed with these the construction and quality of these shirts. I have a chambray one, which is excellent during the summer. Small fit me like a glove and I couldn't be happier with an oxford shirt. I keep hearing good things from BoO, which I'll have to try out one of these days.

    The same two I ordered. I thought they looked the best to me and I was happy to see they were both available. Can't wait until they get here. Come the end of September though, I probably wil have forgotten about them until they arrive at my door. Nice.
    Fly mafakas think alike. The medium (the size I ordered) was gone in the plaid shirt when I checked this morning, so hopefully I got the last or one of the last ones and it didnt sell out before my order. I cant wait for that late-September surprise.

    You might be on the wrong forum then, because this is precisely the sort of place that cares about this.

    tap the buttons on your teeth (or the back of your fingernails). plastic just feels. mmm. i dunno plastic. mop or shell has a kind of metallic feeling. you should be able to tell. try it and you'll know what i mean
