    Then my shirt would cost 50% more if I ordered 2 & returned 1 as I'm not in the States.

    Someone told me I'm xs in the earlier post. But, knowing the p2p measurement for xs, I'm not so sure now.

    I'm actually puzzled about that measurement - I wonder if it's seam-to-seam instead of just measured flat.

    Here's what I can tell you:
    I own a handful of TS shirts in 36 and if I lay them flat and measure across from pit-to-pit, I get a hair over 20", which matches their size chart on the site (http://taylorstitch.com/pages/fit-guide). So far I've found the sizing fairly accurate.

    How's that measured? Because it does't match mine (about 20" across from pit-to-pit) and the site's 40.25" chest measurement...

    I did not measure any because I do not own any. The 18.24 p2p was given by TS on page 12.

    We worked with the pattern makers at Southwick to develop a custom fit for us.

    You do an initial sizing as it's Made to Measure and then we cut it.

    After that we bring it in and make any final adjustments as necessary with our tailor in San Francisco (included in the price).

    All details are customizable as well!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    How much shrinkage do you guys see with these shirts? I just got my first one and thinking I might need to get a size bigger.

    that depends on a multitude of factors...fabric/how it was washed/etc but that being said I hand washed because the fit is perfect and It still fits perfect.

    I was planning on machine washing cold, but that was another question. These aren't dry clean only though are they?

    TS, did you guys fix the 2"-too-long-arms from the denim utility shirts in the pinstripe ones you have up now?
    It's kind of hard to tell from the pics up now.

    You should see no/minimal shrinkage. We prewash and dry all of our fabric then put it back on the roll before we cut it so to reduce this as much as we possibly can. That being said we recommend tumble drying it on low heat or hang drying and washing cold. Best practice for any garment though.

    What shirt did you get Spencer? Every once in a while something will slip by QC. Happy to replace it or cover your laundering cost. Please just let us know!

    No need to dry clean if you don't want. Machine wash cold and hang dry or tumble dry low are perfectly fine.

    They are a bit shorter on the railroad stripes and down to normal sleeve length on the black denim. They were both done in different cuts and we saw samples at different times.

    Very tempted on the flatout triple needle. If I take a 42 in the casual shirts and would like to wear the flatout over a tshirt, should I size up to the 44 or stay at the 42?
