    Here are the long-awaited (and out of focus) fit pics as requested.

    This is what happens when the photographer also does the modeling.


    Wow, looks even better than I thought it would! Super excited for this shirt to ship!

    Here are some shots of how the fabric ages. This after 2 weeks of everyday wear. You can see the blue weft coming through. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Ryan is shorter and a little smaller than I am - I think... 5'9" and 155 lbs or so. I am 5'11", with a much rangier build (so, my arms are quite long for my height) and about 10 lbs heavier as of right now. The shirt fits me much closer to the way it fits the model pics on the Context site. It is the same shirt that Ryan is wearing and is a medium. IIRC, you are closer to Ryan's size and build than to mine. If I were you, I would go with the medium if you plan to wear it as a shirt/jacket sometimes, as Ryan has here, or a small if you want to wear it as a shirt all of the time. Guys like Sauce should probably take a medium.

    Thats me in the photo. I'm 5'09'' and a bit heavier than Fok speculated (I'm 165lbs). When the full size run arrives, I'll try to shoot each size on a proper model for a proper representation of the fit (some sizes will be sold out and thus I will not waste time trying to shoot them-- sorry).

    It is cold and snowing hard in Madison, WI these days so mine has become a mid-layer piece and is perfect for wearing with a henley or tee underneath once I shed my outerwear. I'll post more wear pics in a few months. Its looking great so far.

    Hmm, I'm sort of thinking I should have jumped on a medium now instead of a large.

    Anyone out there in the same, but opposite, boat? ...just in case...

    is there a chest measurement for this shirt?

    i am trying to decide between the xs and s

    i want to wear it as a light jacket so possibly going with the size small

    i wear a small in most american brands like Polo RL polo shirts and american apparel and H&M

    i am a little under 5'8 with a slim build and weight about 140-145

    The label reads, "DRY CLEAN ONLY." If you choose to wash at your own risk, do so in cold water but expect anywhere from 1%-5% shrinkage.

    I'm having second thoughts about ordering possibly the wrong size too. I ordered an XL and I'm 6'1 and about 182-185 pounds. What do you think experts, is that too big? The reason I went with the XL is the shoulders and sleeve. I have long arms.

    Any thoughts? I like the look that was posted on here earlier by Sam and would prefer to wear it like that....maybe slightly looser.

    I went to Context yesterday to look at it and the fabric is amazing. I didn't really like the fit on me (and, mainly, I didn't have the funds for it), but the result is very impressive.

    I am looking to exchange my medium for a large instead. Please check your PMs. The medium fit is a little too short on me (especially in the chest) but the fabric is WOW! Words fail me.
