Like I said, the guy knows his stuff. I would have bought an XL flannel since I like my flannels to be a bit looser. So once again Mike comes through and I'll order a large instead. Mike, I'll take a purple flannel in large when they come in. Gotcha - thanks Karl! I am 6'1" 185 lbs. slim, wear a med. in gitman and usually an xl or l in BoO depending on the shirt... I am guessing I would need an Epaulet Large... Yup, I think that the Large will be right on. I'm nearly the same size as you, and I wear a Large in all of my shirts. I have this same shirt and it is flat out amazing. Would you recommend bringing it to a tailor to make the neck smaller though, or is this type of tailoring too high risk/not possible? I've never heard of a collar being narrowed, but it couldn't hurt to ask a local tailor. purchased a purple flannel last night, cant wait. Danke Schoen!
