    Thanks tonio.

    For your information, the Small i ordered was too tight and the sleeves were ridiculously too short. I had to return it (thanks to Mr. Porter btw for their return policy).
    I exchanged the Small one for a Medium. The Medium is perfect (sleeves, proportions, etc).
    It fits me much better than BB1 (BB Black Fleece), Brooks Brothers "Small" or RL Purple label "Small".
    I usually take 14.5/15 and 33/34.
    Hope this helps.

    Does anyone have measurements on an XS basic oxford?

    IM 5'5 110lbs and was wondering if it would be too tight and long. Muji size S shirts fit real nice on me

    As a guy who has tried lots of different shirts, I would say that I never have to tailor my Gitman Vintage shirts. I cannot say the same for J. Crew (way too baggy in waist and arm circumference), Woolrich John Rich & Bros, or any other brand. Correction, 18 Waits' cotton gauze shirts (so comfortable) fit well. The point is, more "mainstream" designer clothing lines have always needed a trip to the tailor to get them done right, whereas I can wear my Gitman Vintage shirts right off the shelf.

    YMMV, but that's my experience.

    I know this isn't the sales thread, but I just thought I'd put these out here for regulars before I put it on B&S. I have 2 plaid Size Small shirts from the My Habit sale, that are way too small for me. I am usually a size Small, but didn't know you had to size up for the plaid that looks like Blackwatch, so these are essentially size XS.

    The photo is here:

    I live in Canada, so had to pay shipping and duties, so the price is higher than the $60 I paid for it. If anyone's interested, let me know, thanks.

    Yeah my XS Plaid shirt just came in from my habit and its tiny even for me, also lol that is the same shirt I got. Im probably going to ebay it

    Just looking at the measurements on context clothing. the XS looks quite similar to the XS plaid I received. if I get a white oxford should i just get a size S?

    althanis do you generally wear S in other shirts or just in other gitman shirts?

    I'm 5'7'' and 120lbs and XS fits me perfectly. If you are going to buy GBV, you have to go for XS, S would be too huge for you.
    Both of my GBV ends where the red line is, and for you I think XS shirts will stop at the green line.

    So after reading through this thread I'd think that a small would fit me well - I'm about 5'10, 145 pounds with shirts that measure around 28" in length.

    But I'm seeing some ebay listings that put the back length at 30"1/2 for a small flannel and the chest at 18". Did they just get lazy with the measuring or does the sizing vary by that much?

    thanks for the input dingusberry. The shirt i just received is just making me feel funny about the sizing

    Even at my height the sleeves and body were quite short. I first thought it might have been a womens shirt but saw the pack said mens shirt.

    S in Gitman and WvG.

    It really sucks about the plaid though, it's a really nice colour. Would you be interested in the S? We can work something out.

    Oh, and I have 2 because one was for me and one for my brother.

    Send the seller a message asking how they measured. I guess they may have started at the top of the collar :facepalm:

    Is this a lightweight or medium weight gingham shirt?

    Anyone knows any other stores where I can find this chambray blue? Considering a medium in this..

    I'm new...long time reader.

    I just got the floral in M s/s. It hugs real close in the arms and chest. Just wondering for some people how much difference is there for a large? I wondering if I should return.

    pretty big difference from medium to large. There was a time where I was a little inbetween sizes, large was pretty big and medium was too tight to wear....I always had to go large but it often wish the fit was more slim (now it fits me great unfortunately....). If you can fit into a medium reasonably well, large would likely be pretty huge on you.

    Thanks! Its a little tight in the arms and the chest. But what's up with the back? It seems a little weird. I have a reasonable amount of space there
