How are you a small in BoO but a smedium in Gitman? Don;t make no sense
The BoO medium fits the shoulders well and isn't too tight around the chest - and the Gitman small is really constricting at the chest and too small in the shoulders, while the Gitman medium is too big in the shoulders and way too big around the chest and body.
Sometimes the world is weird.
*just realized I inadvertently wrote BoO small when I meant medium in the earlier post. so in fact the world really isn't that weird at all.
well i called and found out it was shipped out yesterday. (for anyone else who ordered)
Hahaha ok good, this makes much more sense. I was like lolwut
I just realized that the Gitman that I just bought and thought was grey flannel is actually 'Japanese yarn-dyed chunky oxford'
Do you have a link to the specific shirt? I'm looking for a heather gray Gitman shirt and deciding between the grey flannel and winter chambray. It would be nice if there's a third option.
It's this one on the left.
And, here's the shop where I bought it (free shipping)
It feels like a flannel, but the weave looks like an oxford.
Where can I get the polka dot corduroy shirt in M now? Was going to buy from woodwood, but got snagged before I could pull the trigger.
Thanks for that. Just picked up their last medium in that shirt. Glad I didn't get it at Barney's for another $20. Tried the Gant by MB blackwatch pullover, but sending that back for the Gitman blackwatch. I don't know why I thought I'd be happy with anything other than the Gitman!
Has anyone seen the green chambray in a medium? The only place I've ever seen it was here - http://www.contextclothing.com/item.php?id=2354
glad to help. What didn't you like about the Gant shirt, compared to Gitman?
Would someone who owns both a GV Dishtowel shirt and a GV staple oxford be able to give me some sizing advice?
I own the Dishtowel in an M and it fits perfectly, but I've heard that GV casual shirts fit quite a bit looser than the oxfords.
I'm looking at buying a blue oxford and im unsure of whether I should buy an M or L. In Brooks Brothers ESF oxfords im a 16/35 which seems to correlate with an L in GV oxfords according to the sizing charts.
Had to get a small to fit the chest. Sleeves were about 4 inches too long, even in the small. (I'm a perfect medium in Gitman.) I also really much prefer blackwatch with some navy in it too. The Gant only had green and black. Just didn't feel like it was worth $185 to me. Might pick it up it makes it to the sale for half off.
I own many GV shirts including the blue dishtowel and the blue oxford, both in large. In Brooks Brothers slim fit I am a 15.5/35.5. The Blue Oxford fits me very well (too loose in collar to wear a tie, though). The dishtowel fits me, but not as well. It is noticeably looser and longer in the body. I don't think it's big enough for me to size down, but it's big enough that I've seriously considering having a tailor do something to it. Based on your brooks brother's measurements, I think you sound between a medium and large in the blue oxford. Maybe a darted large?
For what it's worth, the blue dishtowel is the largest of my GV shirts, with the blackwatch tartan lightweight being the smallest. I have found significant variation in size, and not just between the casual shirts and the oxfords. Despite the variation in body size, I've always found that the large fits me perfectly in the shoulders, so I've never considered switching to medium.
Thanks a lot, great advice.
