Some of the measurements on this chart may be a result of sewing tolerances, such as the 0.5cm in the shoulderI purchased a linen Filip II sirt in my usual size, but the fit is longer and roomier than my other Filip II shirts. The arms are 2.75cm longer, which seems like a big discrepancy (measurements below).
This may be intentional and due to expected shrinkage and linen being more "stiff", or it might be a mistake in the cut (don't know how likely that is; I've asked B&B).
Has anybody else tried the linen Filip II shirts and compared the fit to the "ordinary" Filip II shirts?

I don't know about the others, but sleeves are often a bit longer to account for how linen accordions with wear (not sure if it should be 2.5cm. I've never specified with a tailor, they've just adjusted according to how they see fit).
