    Hi all, I have a question about Sophnet sizing. I've been wanting to get the classic oxford for a while now but today I noticed that the measurements for shoulder-to-shoulder seems incredibly small. Well, at least according to http://www.endclothing.co.uk/brands/sophnet/sophnet-scorpion-oxford-button-down-shirt.html

    If END is to be trusted, then the oxford has a minimum of 15" (Size S) and a maximum of 16.5" (Size XL) on the shoulders... which is extremely narrow and probably means I won't be getting it after all. Could anyone help confirm this, from your own experience? I'd be in your debt!

    From my somewhat limited experience with the brand, it's indeed cut pretty slim. It may also be worth your time to contact some other stores that carry them just to make sure as stores sometimes have varying methods for measurements.

    Fyi, I'm a S in Gitman & wear a M, if that helps.

    The shoulder measurement is sometimes abit tricky. Ideally, I need a 16.5-17" shoulder, but I can wear the M. If the shoulder is small, the arm-hole size is critical, that's what a tailor told me, which makes sense.

    Thanks for that! I'll probably order an M since I'm an S in Gitman and fit about a 16+" on my shoulders as well. It's a good thing that END does free returns!

    NADA. seems like a mish-mash of all ur favorite obscure Japanese brand tropes. Patchwork pants, ethnic, tie-dye, milsurp, etc.
    Talking about the Abstraction meets Blackmeans with a dash of Kapital and Labrat. But with more elderly midgets, obviously.
