    Does anyone know of another set of measurements for the short sleeve overdye oxford or has someone measured one of their own.

    I talked to someone at Jonathan and Olivia who told me the following:

    Medium: Shoulder 16
    Large: Shoulder 17 p2p: 18
    XL: Shoulder 17.5 p2p: 19

    This is much different than what Context posts:
    http://www.contextclothing.com/item.php?id=741

    I am a medium in almost everything and shirts measuring 17in in the shoulders and 40in to 42in the chest fit me nicely. I am trying to decide if I need a L or XL in the overdyed.

    I would size up for the S/S. They are small as FUCK. I cannot even fit into an XL... much too short and tight.

    That said those J+O measurements are wrong, especially shoulders.

    Hey Kunk, back off. My BoO shirts got me more compliments from middle/high school students than any of my other shirts. The patchwork s/s from last spring also has gotten compliments twice while playing video games at bars. Jcrew just doesn't bring in the underage poon like BoO

    As much I hate to agree with the Kunk, in this case I do. The next time one of your trust funds is burning a hole in your pocket, please do the following (1) go to Jcrew (2) purchase a button down in a size smaller than you wear (3) donate $200 to charity (4) tell your friends your shirt is BoO.

    I know these shirts are made in the USA, but for this price they better have investment bankers hand stitching them in the top floor of the GM building.

    Seriously though, i understand with kunk because he's buff but if people really think sizing down on a jcrew shirt is remotely close, then man are they mistaken. If a blousy jcrew shirt makes you happy, by all means be happy.



    Also, $200-225 retail and $125-175 on sale for a shirt being outrageous is a bit much. Try not to look at any other designer clothing to protect your mind from exploading

    nice try but the difference is kunk is trolling and you don't realize how dumb your post is.

    sorry, but band =/ jcrew in fit, fabric, construction or detailing

    I'm still not convinced of that. boo on the left, jcrew "tailored fit" on the right (unaltered by me). The sleeves are negligibly fuller on the jc, but to my eyes the fit looks the same.

    [​IMG]

    Agreed on all other counts of boo being a superior product though (obviously).

    thank you pink. you guys are paying for sternberg's marketing. it's why i buy ro leather jackets but aa viscose tees instead of ro $300 tees. it's this kind of prudence that affords me minivans and once a week take out
