    I'll just get a stain remover spray, spray it on the stain, give it a rub for about 10 secs then wash the shirt.
    I have tried dry cleaning but if it is a stubborn stain, dry cleaning won't be any different (maybe my dry cleaner sucks) from doing what I usually do with the spray.

    You can give dry cleaning a go and see if you like the results.

    Use oxyclean as a spot treatment, then wash. When applying the oxy make sure to rub it in real good. After wash inspect - if the stain is still there, do not dry. Soak it in a bucket of either high concentration oxy clean + water or in white vinegar + water over night and repeat the pretreat and wash. If that doesn't work... I'd say you're screwed. I've never not had it work tho.

    finally bit the bullet and got a made to measure. (sucks falling between small and medium off-the-shelf). anyway, well worth it in my case. fit is spot on.

    on an unrelated note - any way to avoid creasing? my gitman oxfords crease up like crazy over the course of a day (morning, even).

    i don't doing anything special to them.. just a gentle wash followed by a hot steam iron once they're dry.

    TIA.

    anyone with experience with the gitman / unionmade suiting? how is the sizing?

    i've been on the lookout for a nice cotton suit.

    i'm a true 15 (as in, between S & M in their oxfords.) 30" waist.

    Interested in trying my first Gitman Vintage. How do these shirts fit, say compared to a mass produced button up like Uniqlo or Jcrew? Are they slim fitting?
    For reference, an x-small uniqlo chambray fits me pretty well at 5'5 138lbs.

    They are slim-fitting. You should probably try an XS for Gitman, as the sizing is consistent with J Crew and Uniqlo. Unfortunately it's a bit tougher to find XS and many (if not most) stockiest don't carry them.

    I actually think they run smaller than the same jcrew slim size, they are more fitted in the chest

    I would say that it fits like Uniqlo with a nicer cut on the body and roomier arm

    How is the fit on the shorts? I wish they had size 31 but it seems like they are only made in even numbers. Are they true to size?

    Not really feeling this collection but Tubac Trail, Patchwork Print and Paisley is really interesting. Would want to try out their western shirts.

    classic blue OCBDs worth the price tag? deciding between these, BB extra slim, or Epaulet.

    do the classic GV OCBD in blue ever hit the sale? I'm in the market for a shirt I can beat up in the office and on weekends, figured the GV offers a solid fit along with a decent collar

    Every once in awhile they'll pop up on sale but they're not discounted as often as the seasonal designs.
