    BTW, I am a BoO L but Gitman small.

    Gitman vintage does not fit anything like BoO at all! it's much closer to brooks bros golden fleece than BoO.


    I love BoO for their fit - but the quality is pretty bad for how much they cost.


    I had a few shirts copied from a BoO large at a custom tailor. 10x better with 1/2 the price.

    I disagree. I brought my gray batiste to my tailor yesterday to have it taken in (should have bought a L rather than XL) and he was very complementary about the fabric and construction. He knows more about tailoring than 99% of the people on this board. Not all BoO is perfect, but blanket statements like this don't hold water.

    You are right about this. Totally different fit. Gitman shirts are excellent quality but give me hip flare.

    Disagree with this as this is all dependant upon body type. That's the only thing that would explain being a Boo L and a Gitman small since I'm a BoO small and a Gitman small and they both fit slim. There's no way I could fit an XS or XXS if it even existed in Gitman. I posted side by side comparisons in a recent purchases thread about a month back. The hem on the BoO; however, is definately cleaner and has less hip flare than the Gitman, but then again there's no doubt the Gitman is design for tucking but still work for going untucked.

    Can they change thier collar size please?

    15.5 on the medium is retarded, I need atleast a 16.5 or 17.

    Suppose MTM Is the only way for me.

    collar size is just fine for my skinny neck, while the BoO have a great fit I find their collars a tad too big

    Isn't that the standard neck size on mediums? I don't feel like my neck is particular slender and anything more than a 15.5 neck swims on me.

    Gitman just updated their website with some samples of the fall collection and an updated stockist list. Not every shop is on there, but you can get a better idea at least. I love the home page image myself. http://www.gitmanvintage.com

    The F/W shirts seem a lot quirkier than S/S which I thought were pretty conventional patterns and designs. I'm not too familiar with Gitman before this past season so is this pretty much in line with how their previous F/W collections have been?

    They've only been around for one season. Patterns are pulled from their archives, iirc, so it's stuff they've made in the past (30+ years ago)

    So they've been making shirts for 30 years but they only recently began making shirts under their own label?
