    Awesome, thank you.
    Seems I'm XL in most brands but for whatever reason L in J Crew shirting. I remember somebody saying GV was in the same line as J Crew but wanted to check.

    Depends on what shirt you're looking at. If you're looking at prints or the more exotic fabrics, I would not go with J. Crew sizing since the waist taper can be pretty intense. Oxfords, etc you can be safe with the same size. Then again my cherry seersucker fits like a M but I bought a S, so really you have to gamble a lot

    It should also be noted that Gitmans are pretty shirt-to-shirt via sizing. If I'm ordering online, I just brave it was a L and it usually works out well, but small variations might occur. Obviously if you can try it on initially, great, but as someone said some of the more eccentric patterns tend to be a bit more slimming (this could because they use lighter fabrics on em, but I'm no expert.)

    Also, what brands are you an XL in usually? Might be able to give more insight.

    Hey guys. Im currious about sizing on the gitman flannels. I am trying to scrounge around and find an indigo flannel dot in red for sale, but first I want to figure out my size. NWT measurements of the small fit me perfectly. Does that mean I should size up one? or will I be fine with a small?

    I'd go with a small. I've heard some people say that flannel shirts are more likely to shrink but in general Gitman shirts don't shrink. I generally air dry them anyway.

    which one did you get? I got the navy/green madras and it is long as hell. Think I'm gonna get it turns into a short sleeve at the tailor- everywhere was sold out of the s/s in my size, but now unionmade has em... don't think my tailor could shorten it much, though

    Yea same one. You don't think your tailor could shorten it because of the hem shape? I've never actually taken a Gitman to the tailor. I'm 5'7" and buy a large, usually just roll with the longness but this one is extra long.

    Just a guess, but it looks a bit like chambray.

    Partially the hem shape, partially because the hem is close to the bottom button already.

    Thanks guys. Went ahead and bought it. Love club collars. I've never ordered a GBV with numbered sizing (14.5") Is the fit any different on these or can I assume it will be in line with a usual size small?

    fw prints suck really hard so far. The prints are getting dumber and dumber, like trying to be too ironic or whatever. Hardwood floor print, jean ass print, etc... like the hot topic of button ups
