    Hate to break the news, but in my experience Gant Rugger Hugger fits similar to Gitman except the sleeves are about 1.5 inches longer

    ^, true but the Gant Hugger shoulders are also a little narrower.

    ALSO: If anyone has this shirt from a couple seasons ago in Medium, PM me if you want to sell one. Slept, and would like to find it.

    Yeah I don't know why they make their sleeves so long - A&F wise.

    Gitman sleeves are definitely long and the body is a little bigger. I am medium in Gant rugger and sometimes a small or medium in Gitman. All my gitman mediums had to be tailored.

    this is ridic my chest width didn't go up nor did i gain any weight i lost weight. yet somehow gitmans new smalls fit tight as my extra smalls from 2-3 seasons ago. they really need to go with a set of measurements and stick to them because theres no place i can try them on in person. measurements on websites keep varying.

    i've owned 6 gitman vintage shirts before these ones.

    Having the same issue with this season. Which shirt did you get? I bought the prison stripe chambray/oxford and it fits like Baby Gap. I could barely get it buttoned and the arms were so narrow it looked like I was wearing Underarmor.

    I own 5-6 Gitman Vintage mediums from varying seasons and although they all fit slightly different, they still fit. However, this AW 2011 striped chambray/oxford in medium was completely unwearable.

    i feel your pain. i got the husky hunter print and the moss green. they fit incredibly close to my extra smalls from previous seasons. i think they need to get quality control in there lol.

    i wish the arms on these new ones were narrow mine are baggy as hell but i have boney arms. its strange how the p2p fits similar to my extra smalls yet the whale tail back is a lot more bigger. looks like i have a big lower hunchback..

    yea it was a given it looks good with denim, i've tried to wear it with my navy west point wings + horns didn't seem right on me. thanks for the suggestions. maybe will try to buy a pair of black chinos.

    is it just me but even my extra small had the shirt tail flare in the back now that i went up to the small the shirt tail flare is even bigger but every where else the fit is good. is there a way to get rid of the flare in the back?

    i hope its just the material and it'll settle down eventually.
