    The Cohen is oversized. I would still go TTS for the intended fit. But as with all oversized garments, you can go down a size if need be. You can’t do that with the Carlton, which fits a trim TTS.

    The fabric should also be taken into account with regards to the fit and sizing. I bought two Carlton shirts from SS18; that one with the orange pattern on the body and the blue trim and then the navy one with embroidery on the pocket and green colorblock at the bottom hem. The orange one is thin viscose which drapes very well, so I got my normal size L for a standard fit. The navy one is a stiff cotton that does not drape as well and hence sizing up to a XL looked better imo. I could also have sized up to a XL in the viscose version, but that would have looked more oversize than the cotton version.

    I thought all the Carlton shirts go by number sizes and the Cohens by letter.

    If you are saying that as a response to my post, then yeah, maybe the Carlton goes by numbers. In that case I got a 50 (TTS) and 52, just to clarify.

    Yep, Cohen is XS-XL, and Carlton is 44-54.

    While we are on the topic of shirt styles, anyone know anything about the fit and sizing of Cobain shirts?

    The more I look at SS19, the more I love it. I won't be able to afford even 5% of everything I want from the collection. :-(

    Anyone know how busy the Antwerp stock sales tend to be in general, and Dries in particular? Does all of fashion-Europe descend on the city for a few days?

    @jtj48 that basic all black is only at Mohawk from what I’ve seen. There are some other versions around though: chocolate suede at a Rosen Gray, Jeffrey NY has/had a pair and same for Totokaelo (snakeskin I think?)
