    Makes sense now. I wear a medium in Gitman but I figured the medium would be fine since some brands I would probably need a large size. (band of outsiders, maybe apc shirting)

    BoO (not a fan) is sized small, APC sometimes ridiculously so.

    Hard to make definitive statements about OL sizing - it's all over the place. I'd say more than any other brand I buy, it's always worth asking for measurements.

    Our Legacy suiting is fairly TTS and on the slimmer side. It will probably need tailoring unless you find going off the rack fits you right usually, their sleeves are long and the pants come long also so you can take them up, something to take into consideration if you're a shorter guy. I think their quality in suiting isn't great, lack of lining, uncomfortable materials, and this particular jacket had a cheap feel to it to be honest, H&M kinda feel to the material. For the same money you can find much better, unless you like the design of it rather strongly, the pattern itself looks quite good.

    I've never tried their Six Shirts, so I can't speak to the fit. However, I am in a similar situation with a medium 1950's denim shirt (it's for sale too!). It fits a little baggy on me, but it's still wearable. Ultimately, I know a size small will fit even better so I'm re-reselling it.

    With OL, you have to keep in mind that each cut fits differently (i.e., I'm a small in their 1950's shirt, but a medium in their Classic shirt). You also have to factor in the material, which might affect how the shirt "hangs" on you.

    OL is supposed to be on the boxy side, but not necessarily baggy. There are also different kinds of baggy: is the collar loose? are the arms too long? is the shirt too long? etc. And what works on one person, might not work on another...

    So in the end, it helps to try it on first--if you are lucky enough to have a store that stocks it near you!

    When I try on OL I just think to myself: If it doesn't feel "right" then it probably doesn't fit.

    I dont think OL tends to fit small. ithink it actually fits pretty large (for shirts and jackets at least)

    OL suiting often does fit slim. That blazer may work for you but there's so little consistency in sizing within (let alone between) seasons it's hard to know.

    Ok I had an interesting experience with Cruise trying to buy some runner I trainers, first time I ordered it was cancelled without informing me, then I tried again as it was still on their site, same problem. Then I phoned in and I was told they were definitely out of stock.
    By chance I was on their site on monday and saw that the trainers were back and so bought them, this time it worked!
    Got them today...
    Anyway the point of the rambling is that someone asked about sizing,
    I wear a UK size 7 red wings, UK 8 in most trainers including new balance and onitsuka though I fit a 8.5 about as comfortably in these.
    I bought the size 42 runners in navy/petrol and they fit me snug and well, i think i would be alright up a size but not down one.
    Hope thats helpful
