    You could get away with going down one size, I would think. The fit is very loose, as accentuated by the profile shot. Length is okay, although I'd personally prefer it to be a tiny bit shorter if you plan on wearing it untucked.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone, I think I'm going to put the red one in the dryer once to get the shrink out and then take them both to the tailor. Hopefully they know what they're doing since I'm still a little lost in all this. What is the ideal length on the sides?

    Thanks again

    The red chambray looks quite a bit too large in the arms. They're too long and much too full. The first shirt fits better in those areas. I think you may be best served by altering the first shirt in the waist and simply selling the second shirt on B&S.

    Don't dry them! Machine wash cold, delicate cycle, hang dry. I suppose if you want it to shrink you should dry em, but I never dry any of my goods with them exception of gym clothes and some t-shirts and sweats. A tailor can probably do you well on the first one, I don't know if you should bother with the chambray but you could probably fix it up.

    I'm only going to dry it once just get the shrink out and then see if the tailor can get it to work better. I try not to dry any of my nice stuff usually, but in this case maybe it will help it fit a bit better.

    I would sell the shirts and buy new ones instead of trying to shrink them or getting them tailored, which risks damaging them.
    They are nice shirts and you could easily get your money back.

    I'll probably just keep them since I feel like they look a lot nicer than anything else I own. I have a hard time finding anything that fits right because I'm 5'10 and only 130 lbs.

    I've never had anything tailored before, is it very likely that either of these shirts would be damaged?

    Thanks

    Working out a tad will help you fill out your shirts...I went from 5'10 135 to 145 and it's a big difference....worked out twice a week for an hour total, worth it. When I was lighter, J crew slim fit in S and Land End Canvas Madras in S both fit pretty well. I'm pretty sure if you got an Epaulet S it would fit well.

    dude i had the same exact problem and wondered the same thing. i sized down and it was perfect. if you're willing to dig back through this thread, you could see my pictures.

    plus if that red chambray is a medium, i'd be willing to buy it from you. :D

    Oh.

    So you're like me then.

    Are those XS? If not, then you bought the wrong size. Resell on B&S and keep your eyes peeled for extra smalls.

    I've had a couple Epaulet shirts come in a size too big. I washed and dried them and they shrank down nicely.

    Just do it. and enjoy

    Fidelity Peacoats

    Hey guys, we just put our delivery of Fidelity Mens peacoats online. There's two styles available.

    Produced in Massachusetts, Fidelity exports nearly all of its production to Japan. The fit therefore is a really slim Japanese body, that actually corresponds quite well to our shirting. The details are killer, and the price is really solid. I'm a huge fan of this line, and the guys who make it are some of the best people that we work with.

    Fidelity Grey Shawl Collar Peacoat: $295

    [​IMG]
    Fidelity Navy and Grey Contrast Stripe Peacoat: $295

    In terms of warmth, both coats are made of a 21oz wool melton blend (80 wool, 20 nylon). That's a standard mil-spec blend designed to decrease pilling and give a strong measure of wind resistance. Compared to most Army-Navy peacoats, these will be significantly lighter (Naval spec is typically around 32oz). If you live somewhere cold in the winter, you'll definitely need to layer underneath this, so I'd recommend sizing up one. If you have any experience with the heavier wool outerwear of Engineered Garments and Woolrich Woolen Mills, then I'd put this at about the same level of warmth. Personally, I can wear things like this until around mid-December in NYC, but then I have to break out the down and insulated stuff. But it depends on how warm you prefer to dress.
