    The green od is my favorite shirt right now, waiting on the khaki od and a plaid from acrimony.

    So my white OCBC came in today and it's way too small compared to my blue one. Pretty disappointed with Gitman's inconsistency in sizing.

    Same with me, bought a tagged S from a member here. Measurements basically matched up with XS ....

    If anyone wants a blue oxford thats actually an XS mistagged PM me. It's BNWT , missing a button on the back of the collar.

    It's been my experience that the white fits small, the blue a little big...and the other colors right in between. I have grey and red, my roommate has white and blue and that is what we've seen.

    Ah, good to know. Think I'm just going to ask for a refund and just visit a retailer that stocks GV shirts.

    You know they did change their fit for the S/S11 season. If you bought an oxford from that season and then bought one from another SF user that was from a previous season it will fit differently...

    Whats up Dsoren - I haven't bought one in a bit. How did they change, if you know?

    It's much better - I would say that they are a hare slimmer and a little bit longer. Shoulders are a little bit different as well. Honestly it's a little difficult to describe is it was not a dramatic tweak - the shirts just lay differently on people.

    I've also found that the oxfords tend to fit a bit bigger than the patterned shirts, and alot of people size down if they want a super slim fit on the oxfords. TTS they are already relatively slim, but I know how some of you guys are with your slim fits...

    Alot of industry people would say that previous seasons fit a size bigger than S/S11 onward...

    Received my floral shirt from SW. Fit is a tad smaller than regular XS for Gitman, but still nice. Feels a bit shorter too but nothing major - maybe half an inch in total. I second the comment that it's not the heaviest fabric, but is still much heavier than the S/S Chambrays and Madras. Awesome shirt.
