    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Yeah, in a BoO small, you can see all of my belt when I'm standing. I suppose that means you'd see undershirt when I'm sitting? Is that considered a fashion faux pas of some sort?

    EDIT: didn't see ARW's post. Does it matter that there's that weird pulling around the neck/shoulders? That happens with all of my shirts.

    It's a bit awkward and too short for my taste and it means you will never be able to succesfully tuck your shirt in. But I don't think the fashion police will arrest you. Just don't go out without an undershirt. Flashing side torso is definitely a fashion crime.

    The small seems to fit you well other than the length, so you are a candidate for a tall, although those apparantly don't exist anymore. I have never tried to size up to a medium, but I hear it can look awkward if you really aren't built for it in the shoulders and chest.

    If your undershirt/skin is visible when you sit, that's bad. If not, I wouldn't think twice about it. Don't size up to a medium, you might as well sell the shirt and buy a different brand, it will not fit you like that.

    Just bought two L's from Moda. The girl was even nice enough to send me pictures of what they had available.

    Sounds like a cool shop. If I'm ever in P-burgh I will have to stop by (although I can't think of a reason to ever go to P-burgh).

    Mm, wasn't really looking at the room, I assumed he bought that shirt from Gilt.

    What are the prices of BoO shirts going for at Moda?

    ^I was on the phone with them recently, and they said they're stacking two 30% discounts, which comes to 51% off retail. assuming your average BoO shirt retails for $250...well, you catch my drift.

    FWIW, they apparently are almost out of BoO, at least in small and medium. same with R&B and NdG.

    what are some really short v neck undershirts? I wear an white AmericaApparel small under all my button downs and the shirt peaks out the sides when I'm standing, it sorta bothers me. I guess I could go XS AA.

    I realize you're the high school student with nerdy glasses, but how does 30% X 2 get you to 51%?

    Discounts at Moda were more severe than that. I got an overdye for $70 and two others for $110 that were originally $285. I also just got the s/s bib in from Gilt. Aside from the wrinkling (exacerbated by flash), how is it? [​IMG]

    does the s/s fits slimmer than the l/s? i had a s/s oxford in that same color but sold it cause it was rather snug. Not sure if I have to size up for s/s.

    I'm not a big bib person but it fits well.

    Not sure of the sizing of the s/s vs long sleeve. Ask me in a few days...

    I'm not a big bib person either, but I don't mind it as much on this shirt becuase it's s/s and 1000x more muted than some of the others offered at Gilt.

    I think the bib works on this s/s and this color, I don't think it works on the l/s they offer it in. I dig it.

    does the s/s fits slimmer than the l/s? i had a s/s oxford in that same color but sold it cause it was rather snug. Not sure if I have to size up for s/s.

    This Gilt sale was my first experience with BoO and I got a size small in a l/s OCBD and medium in the s/s contrast collar and I think the fit is almost identical. Based on this one time I would say the s/s tend to fit a tad more snug that the l/s in the A fit. I'll post my pics in a bit.

    EDIT:

    Plum striped l/s button down - size small

    Contrast collar (yellow/white) s/s button down (mother of pearl buttons) - size medium

    No chance you'd sell the plum stripe, right?

    Only if you agree to pay retail for it.
