    In my experience it's much less forgiving than Engineered Garments. Give me a 2, 3 or a 4 and I still can't button the whole thing down without pulling. I returned everything, but a shirt I got a while ago from The Corner (which still fits me weird, but whatever... too late). Fits like Band of Outsiders in 2009.

    I have one I'm going to sell that's XL
    Fits like a medium/large - sizing was way off on that one!

    I find that ts(s) fits me a lot better than EG or WWM. I posted some pictures in another thread of me wearing a size 3 shirt - it was a little slim. I picked up another in a 4 and it's a comfortable fit.

    ts(s) is cut slimmer and longer and doesn't have the super-narrow EG shoulder / wide waist thing. it's also most more expensive and not widely available, although thecorner/yoox have a fantastic selection right now. waiting for another corner drop to pick up a flannel shirt.

    the construction/materials on ts(s) are on another level too.. the fabrics are exceptional, and the detailing top-notch. the shirt I have has better MOP buttons than barba and borelli shirts I've handled.

    The measurements on the Garbstore site look odd for the Truman, a big jump from Medium (which seems a really small p2p) to Large. Has anyone tried this on yet in the Indigo or Ecru to add further comment to the one's about the Navy Truman posted on the last page?

    Really want to order one but very hesitant about sizing, normally I'm a medium but they can be snug fitting, ie. FW12 Bedford Whipcord.

    Also Reg. ts(s),
    Agreed on the fit comments, I bought a suit form context awhile back and the jacket was longer than my eg jackets but overall had a better balanced fit, construction and details were also a step up, the slacks did fit weird though.

    Can anyone comment on the Charcoal Tropical Wool fabric? Thinking of picking up a pair of shorts in it.

    True. Couldn't get my arms in a Large when I tried it. Ridiculous.

    I'd never thought I'd say this but if any of you are planning on getting the Lafayette shorts I recommend going a size down. A small fits a w34, plus there are no belt loops, but there are draw strings. Hope this helps. Cheers.

    does anyone know how the workshirts for ss13 fit compared to the ones from the fw12? from my understanding, the fw12 ones fit a little larger than previous seasons. and if anyone can provide measurements, that would be helpful. thx!

    It will fit JRS1979. Cop the one from end and I am around your waist size.
