    I hang out more in the MC forum and so I'm not sure about about something basic. When I generally fold up dress shirt sleeves, I use a method whereby I bring it up to about my elbows and roll the sleeve. With more casual button downs like GBV, what is the proper way to fold up the sleeves. And should it be folded to up past the elbow?

    the proper way is to fold the sleeve into a perfect little butterfly

    Can anybody describe how the japanaese yarn tartans feel? In terms of weight? Is it more like a flannel? Thanks

    I would say mid-weight, definitely not as thick or warm as flannel. Probably best suited for fall or with other heavier stuff during the winter. With that said I think they are light enough to wear in warm climates or pretty much year-round if desired.

    smh, they aren't slim fitted at all unless you get an overdyed or the special fabrics. all gbv in oxford fabric are pretty blousy.

    To me, the regular and overdyed oxfords have the exact same fit. Medium is snug and slim, large is large and blousy.

    They are slim if you have a medium to stocky build. I have a slim build, and my GBV shirts are not particularly slim fitting. Some of the lighter fabrics, like the linens, wind up being slimmer after washing, though.


    My striped linen chambray shirt from Acrimony quickly became my favorite shirt.

    people with a slim build should wear blousy, full cut shirts. slim fit just accentuates their body type, making it look scrawny. it needs to be balanced. ymmv.
