    I'd love a black waxed snap backpack. Make it happen!

    I received the new OCBD in the mail a couple days ago. The last batch was too tight in the chest for me, but this is only about .25" larger in pit to pit, so unfortunately I will have to return it. Also noticed that the sleeves are shorter and the collar a little larger.

    Some quick measurements:

    Size L
    Collar (center of button to center of buttonhole): 16.625"
    Half Chest (pit to pit): 22.75"
    Half Hips (across bottom hem): 22.75"
    Sleeve Length (from shoulder seam): 26.5"
    Yoke: 19"
    Center Back Length (from bottom of collar): 30.75"

    Just got the new OCBD in smoke, size M.

    To say that I am disappointed would be an understatement.
    I don't want to even imagine how bad the originals were.

    This would fit... if I wore a sweater underneath.
    It fits like a cereal box would on a toddler.

    Now it may be just me... but I am about 5'8-5'9, 155-160lb, 38-40 chest.
    For me, overall length is too long, sleeves are too long, sleeves are too puffy/wide, and just felt BOXY in general.

    I am actually going to wake up early tomorrow just so I can return this thing faster.

    3 of my tee's came in

    Navy, gray, and white

    The white one has a hole on the left side like someone got shanked. A few rips and a hole on the side. This is a first.

    I've had experience with both. I got a few Everlane tees early in while they were beginning. Hated the collars. They were huge and made me feel like a dirty girl trying to show off chest to everyone.

    Right now I'm on a Frank and Oak rampage as I've found out their XS fits me like a glove so I've been getting a bunch of shirts for work. I'd recommend giving them a shot. Craftsmanship isn't the greatest (loose threads here and there), but it's cheap and convenient.

    Went to their (F&O) website and left. Honestly getting annoyed by brands that require memberships to shop their sites. The only reason I bothered with Everlane in this regard is because of this thread and some blogs.

    I'm kind of ambivalent about F&O as a whole. They focus on "curated" content and coming out with endless variations of what are essentially the same shirts and pants every month. There's something about the whole operation that smacks a bit too much of GQ style advice.

    That said,

    - I have one of their flannel shirts, and it's ungodly soft. It also somehow fits slim in spite of having a box pleat.
    - I actually like the terry blazer they just came out with. I'm wearing it in a recent WAYWT (from yesterday, I think). I sized down one to a 38.

    Relative to Everlane, the buttons and fabric aren't as nice, and the construction isn't necessarily up to par. Everlane has a core set of offerings with gradual product releases that are fine-tuned over time. F&O has a wider variety of products, but they don't seem to put as much thought into the details.

    So you bought the wrong size [​IMG]... If you haven't bought from them (or any other online shop before) try buying two different sizes.

    I doubt sizing down would help with how boxy the sleeves are....

    I also have a flannel from F&O and can confirm that it is indeed ungodly soft. Very thick and warm. Very happy about the flannel I received a few days ago.

    I picked up a gray cashmere hat and scarf. Very pleased with it, the scarf is nice and chunky. Compared to my Johnston of Elgin cashmere scarf it's much thicker, more casual.

    I think I might be able to wear them with my black lamb ToJ CWU and brown calf ToJ 4-zip moto when the weather's cold. Are these SF-approved combos?

    i wish it were that simple.

    but unless the small has a 2.5 inches shorter back, 1.5 inches shorter sleeves, 1 inch "narrower" sleeves, etc... i doubt it would help any bit.

    So, does Everlane always ask the buyer to send them a photo if there is something wrong with the order e.g. I had ordered a large white tee and got holes on the side.

    This is a bit ridiculous. What if I don't have a camera? lol

    Fair enough. Possibly an XS then? Its sounding like the new shirts are almost two sizes to big (if you want a slim fit & size wise = Gitman).

    Um ... I think EVERY retailer asks the buyer to send a photo if there is something wrong with the order. How else is your complaint even vaguely verifiable?!
    Gilt asked the same of me when I bought a CK Collection shirt advertised as "Made in Italy", which turned out to be "Made in Tunisia" or something.

    It's part of a new social media campaign.

    Make sure you post the pic to instagram and tag it with #shirtswithholes

    Then you can see everyone else's submissions
