    Seriously. If it were not the BoO name I dont understand when you would ever wear a bib shirt. Bib shirts are the only shirts I ever see after a sale that are still in stock.

    I have a black, one button, peak lapel suit from Costume National that I wore to my wedding. I briefly considered picking that bib shirt off eBay and finding a narrow bowtie to pair with the suit to create a makeshift tuxedo. That was even a stretch. I need to see an example of this bib shirt in action to be convinced that it's not just one of those batty BoO vanity pieces like boat shoe boots.

    My 10.5 sperry navy boat shoes fit me well sockless. I definitely couldn't do a 10, but probably could do an 11 if i wanted to wear socks. Makes me think i shouldn't just bought 11 in those boots. Hmm.... Maybe i'll try to switch it up if 11 is still available
    Thanks for the tip... A quick google search said the womans ran large so I ordered the 9.5, but after seeing that I went ahead and ordered a 10 which I think should fit better. Luckily it was still available. Anyone know if I cancel my order if I get cash back if it hasn't shipped yet?

    If I wasn't broke, I would have kopped that baseball jacket in a heartbeat.

    ^Pretty much how fast you would've had to be, too.

    I had that baseball jacket in my cart as soon as the sale started, but ended up leaving it. Still got an earl gray overdyed oxford... Really need to stop spending money, I'm going to NYC on Wednesday.

    Who bought the plum overdyed in XL?

    on gilt's FAQ:

    "You have the option to modify or cancel your order up to 15 minutes after your order is placed. You can do this once you receive your order confirmation receipt by clicking the Print Receipt option and choosing Modify or Cancel. After 15 minutes, you can no longer modify or cancel your order."

    There was a bib shirt from a different company with a bit more of a looser fit and nice texture that i almost bought. I'd wear it wish some baggy with a taper yohji esque trousers either tucked into or slightly cropped with black combat boots. Not a huge fan of the BoO one though

    Thanks. I guess I'll just selling the worse fitting pair on B&S. I'm pretty sure I can get rid of them quick.

    Bib Band shirts look babyish. It isn't channeling a tuxedo shirt.. it's channeling a messy baby at dinner time.

    If you layer over it, most people would probably not notice it as a bib shirt so it would just be a shirt with an interesting detail, like contrast colors.

    This is exactly what I thinking of. I hope it works though...

    i was only able to get earl grey overdye in xs, and that was super lucky. i was clicking "buy now" constantly for almost 10 minutes hoping the person wouldn't buy it.

    So you were the one who snatched the Earl Grey, I had to settle for the generic light blue one.

    Seems like a lot of people picked up the earl grey (I did too in medium). I'm having a bit of buyer's remorse but that should change when it gets here.
