    I've been pining for this for quite some time. Finally pulled the trigger. Blood to flow.

    +1 to this. Quality is better too, hence the difference in price point.

    Gitman is a quirky company. All of their orders are written on those old school pink pieces of paper. They don't have true linesheets. Sometimes they're difficult to get a hold of. It's part of the charm.

    I'm sorry, but those of you who are sweating very minuscule fit differences need to calm down. If you want a shirt that fits you 100% perfectly, you have two options:

    1) Get bespoke shirts made.
    2) Become the fit model for a shirtmaker.

    Also understand that there's differences based on fabrics. Spring/Summer shirts made of linen blends are obviously going to fit looser, even if they're cut to the same pattern. That's because the fabric has a looser weave, etc.

    Everything you said is true of Epaulet as well. If I were all in on a poker hand, you could be sure I'd be throwing down Epaulet. They've got everything from tight Oxford to flowing lawn shirts. Take GV and Epaulet, and you've got your bases covered.

    I picked up the Hickory Stripe Shirt to try out the fit (sz S) and it fit perfectly. I do see what some where saying about the back puff but thats only minor and not bad (might get it darted). I also agree they look great on those (me included) with broad shoulders.

    anyway.. help me with this please....just for clarification, are these the same shirts?

    Striped Oxford..

    I think those are all the same. The grey and blue stripe shirts that Contex sells (which I have) look exactly like the ones described as vintage dress shirts on Unionmade. I think they are all the same. Besides, I really doubt they are doing a whole bunch of the exactly same pattern/color shirts in multiple fabrics. I think different shops just describe them differently as Gitman probably doesn't send official fabric descriptions with the product. Just my thinking on it.

    No. That first shirt is a heavy oxford in a classic gray university stripe. The second has two different colored pinstripes (much thinner stripes). The first green chambray is a beefy green oxford chambray. The second is a thinner pinpoint, lighter oxford.

    Is it right to assume all these fabrics are different than the normal "chambray," as seen here?

    Anyone know where to get that shirt, but in slate/green?

    Portland Dry Goods on Commercial Street. They have not received their fall delivery yet though.

    The green one from Context is not what I would call beefy, certainly not compared to their true oxford fabric shirts. I have that shirt, as well as a couple of their oxfords and the green is a significantly lighter chambray fabric.

    South Willard has the rest of their shipment up. Dunno if they're getting another, but this one is depressingly boring after seeing how awesome the first two shirts were
