    Surprised, OL tends to fit roomy. Do you have larger than average arms and call anything average or slightly built stick-like? Or, do you have normal to athletic arms and it is really that slim? Wondering because sometimes people exaggerate the circumstances, and I've never found an OL that is that slim.

    ^ I usually take a M but got a L and I don't have big guns, just average guy guns but had a hard time getting them in the sleeve. And the fabric is not all cotton, tag says 86% wool and 14% cotton. LIke I said, the material is top notch, nice buttons, and I like the way the pocket is sewn - damn shame it doesn't fit - I'm cryin' manly tears over this...:violin:

    Wow, that's wild. I generally take a small and my FW '10 OL flannels all fit larger than Gitman, Epaulet, or Wings + Horns in the same size. They must have switched up sizing on some of the shirts. I'm actually intrigued to try them on.

    Something has gone terribly wrong with OL fits over the past season. I've ordered 4 OL shirts, and had to return those 4 shirts. The fits are just shrunken way out of control. And it's not me getting fat - I still have small and medium OL shirts from several season ago, which fit fine. With the current offerings the arms are now very shrunken, and the fit is very constricted around the upper chest. This is for the 1940s and placket button down fits. I'd have to size up to a L or XL to get a comfortable feeling in the arms/ chest (if I was lucky), but by that point it all looks a bit out of kilter. I guess they are chasing after the Boo market. This makes me so fucking sad. I loved the interesting materials, and styles, of shirts. But I can't wear a shirt I don't feel comfortable in. The fits just don't feel "easy" any more. I think they are targeting a very specific body type now. Basically you need the body of a anorexic 16 year old. It makes me sad, because I always saw OL as making shirts that were a bit timeless.

    Yeah, the fit is strange now, at least on the 1940's. the chest on a large was very tight. Body and length were good, but the shoulders were very wide (>20"). Nobody that can fit into the chest will be able to fill out the shoulders.

    I don't really think the fit has changed much. I've been a medium in all of their shirts for the last 4 seasons, and it seems most of our customers have been able to buy their regular size this season as well. The fits have always been a bit quirky, and their are so many different bodies and fabrics that it can be tough to keep track of. I just measured out a couple size small p2p's for example: 1940s chambray - 20.5, Placket Shirt oxford - 21.75, 1950s jaqueline print - 21.5, First Shirt polka dot - 20.5, 1950's grey melange - 22.25. As you can see, there is an unusual range, but even the slimmest options are looser than most other brands we carry. Definitely nowhere near Band Of Outsiders.

    OL stuff usually fits true through the shoulders and chest, but long. A lot of their stuff is cut sort of boxy as well.

    Rule of thumb, never size down in their BD shirts. Although the length and P2P might be fine sized down, the collar measurements are very true.

    I have a few of their knits in M. Most fit decently well although one has ridiculously long arms. Ended up ordering one as well and if it doesn't fit I'll put it up on b&s.

    Does anyone have the Our Legacy Shield jacket and want to comment on sizing? I can pick up a size medium for about $100 less than a small, but I'm a bit worried about the fit. Most OL things I've picked up from this year have been noticeably slimmer throughout compared to previous seasons, but the measurements I've seen for this jacket make it seem like if anything, I should size down.

    I'm 5'11, 165 for reference....
