    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.


    That's about right with my experience, the S/S (I wear a L in BoO A Body) is noticeably more snug then the L/S. And even in the L/S the overdyed BD's is definitely a bit tighter all around then the regular BD's.

    are you sure it doesn't have darts

    i seriously doubt it's f body

    we had the blue/white candy stripe at farinelli's and it was both darted and a body

    I don't think they even make B body anymore and I've only seen F at like Blackbird in like 3 shirts

    generally the only non f body shirts are a few non button down collar shirts each season that are slimmer than b body

    ie: tea stained check double flap pocket shirt from last season

    yup, sure there's no darts

    this is the purple one, not the navy one. not sure if that makes a difference. I know blackbird carried the navy candy stripe in both a and f body. never seen the purple one w/ darts

    Take a picture of the back so we can analyze it closer and give you a professional opinion.

    Your candy stripe is an F-body

    I remember seeing/trying it on at Barney's when I was in Las Vegas. They had it on sale there for $70 and I was close to buying it but F-body is too loose for me

    I think the BoO size medium was modeled after my body. I cannot believe how flawlessly these shirts are fitting me. I'm glad something finally lived up to the hype.

    How do you guys wear your BoO shirts--tucked or untucked? With the funky hemline, they look a little funny untucked, but better, I think, than they do tucked.

    This is my observation: They're meant to be untucked. The hem is shaped that way for a reason. A BoO-slim shirt with a normal hem would pull at the sides when you sit down, whether you tuck or not.
