    I'm a S in both Gitman and Epaulet. The only differences I notice are that Gitmans have slightly broader shoulders and they have more material in the back (since Epaulet uses darts). I don't size down going from Epaulet to Gitman.

    I wear an L in Gitman and an XL in Epaulet. I have tried XL in Gitman, but I can wrap it like a kimono. I an Epaulet L is snug on you, try L in Gitman and hot soak and dry to get a little shrink.

    Epaulet is definitely bigger than Gitman. I own several GV and one Epaulet and it's much larger. Larger P2P and S2S. Length is about the same on both.

    I'm an XS in both.

    Both Epaulet and Gitman shirts vary in size depending on the fabric used and season, so it's challenging to say.

    I wear L in Gitman, XL in Epaulet and TOJ. I find the XL to be too long in the body with the gitman XL shirts that i have.

    This is really the best point, although I feel Epaulet is much more consistent in their sizing. I own 11 Epaulets and 11 GV, and while I'm a S in all the Epaulets, there are a couple GV shirts for which I've had to size up. Still, I wouldn't say Epaulet fits larger than GV in general. Best to look at the vendor's website to see what they give for measurements.

    Yeah, go by their measurements. I think Gitman spans a broader range from xs to xl while Epaulet has the same number of sizes covering a smaller range. Just compare the numbers:

    Gitman XS= 18.5" p2p
    Gitman XL=25" p2p

    Epaulet XS=18" p2p
    Epaulet XL=22" p2p

    (measurements taken from Context and Epaulet respectively)


    So it really depends where you fall in the size spectrum as to how they compare. I'm a Large in Gitman and they are on the big side for me. I can get a Gitman medium on but it's skin tight and not wearable. There is a big jump from medium to large in Gitman.

    With Epaulet I can get a fit on either large or XL. I have done an XL with a wash and a dry to shrink it a little and that has been the best fit. The large was snug to start with, but wearable. I think it's easier to find the perfect fit with Epaulet as long as you fall in their range. I really want something between a medium and a large from Gitman to be an ideal fit. As it is I wear the large but wish I could slim down the lower portion a little (may have one darted at some point to see how that works)

    I recently got one of the cotton yarn dyed plaid shirts from the F/W 2011 collection and it fits similar to an Epaulet medium. But it looks like this is not the case for all Gitman shirts this season since it seems Need Supply is recommending folks size up on the cotton yard dyed plaid shirts.

    I agree. I've seen a lot of variance with sizing in Gitman. I prefer the fit of Gitman over Epaulet in general though.

    Thanks for the feedback folks. I was able to try on a medium and large of a madras vertical striped shirt yesterday (on vacation in Portland, Maine). Unfortunately, they only had the one style in the two sizes. large was huge on me but medium was too tight around my belly. Prolly best bet would e to get a large and try to shrinkt or alter it via dart, et.

    I do disagree with those that mention that the Epaulet shirts are inconsistent. I have 7 shirts (2 oxfords, 4 dress shirts in different styles and a casual button up) and all are consistent.
