    Ordered this floral print from the MyHabit sale and it showed up as a short sleeve.
    Surprised, but I do like the SS better.

    ^^ I have that in short sleeve as well. Makes a better short-sleeve than long-sleeve shirt, IMO.

    I'd be interested in a navy or chambray oxford in XL if anyone doesn't want theirs.

    Do Gitman shirts have different fits? I mean fits like classic, custom or slim fit? I haven't seen it mentioned in the details or each shirt's name.

    There's Gitman Bros which is a traditional large cut, and there's Gitman Bros Vintage which is a more modern slim cut. Generally the sizing is consistent for GBV; however, there are some cases where shirts run smaller. I know the White OCBD runs a bit smaller than normal, the blackwatch plaid runs a full size smaller according to some, and the OC x GV generally run a full size smaller (meaning size up 1).

    No, there is nothing that discerns the fit of a shirt from season to season, you just have to rely on people in this thread to give feedback.

    Just got my shirt in the mail and I was really surprised by the sizing. I have 6 gv shirts which fit me perfectly in medium but the forest green navy plaid I ordered in medium is definitely a full size smaller. If anyone wants to buy the Forest Green/Navy Plaid in a tagged medium but actually a size small, for $70 shipped, let me know. The pattern on this shirt is really nice, I just wish it was in my actual size.

    It seems like all plaids from that season fit small

    Funny timing. I just got mine too. As you can see my small fits a little snug..

    Reason being, these are from the Gitman 'Sisters' line. Shorter sleeves, narrow shoulders, extra room in the chest... :cry:

    they got us good here man, lol

    Does it actually have the "Sisters" tag inside the collar?

    There is no way he could have actually squeezed into that shirt if it was a women's small

    It does not. But my girlfriend actually has one herself and neither does her. She's tried it on just now and said the fit is the exact same (hers is an xs).

    This same shirt sat around in Acrimonys sale section for a pretty long time...up until recently. One of the only places online that carries the sisters line.

    I know it's weird that I can fit into the small, but the chest built to accommodate.... check out where the actual shoulder seams lie though.

    Haven't been following Gitman anymore because of fit being too inconsistent, but I would have given that sale a try if I didn't miss it. If anyone has these, pm me:

    navy/green (blackwatch) plaid, bold stripe oxford, brown plaid flannel in small or medium.

    I ordered two shirts the Blue/Green Plaid Oxford and the Dark Navy/Yellow Plaid Pullover Flannel both in mediums. The Flannel fit fine and I am keeping it. The Blue/Green plaid fit horribly! It was way too wide in the body and the sleeves were a good inch too short! Needless to say that one is going back...

    I ordered that forest plaid shirt too. Looks like it's gonna go back probably.
