    The Japanese navy you're refering to is more like Japanese denim I suppose ? It is about as dark as a overdyed navy with shimmers of white (like how denim are).

    My shirt button hole unravels but usually not before washing. Could it be that your shirt was a sample because GV did have their sample sale and samples usually have odd sizes and poorer built (hence they are samples).

    Yeah, I saw the the Japanese Denim shirt but I also ran across a Japanese Indigo that looked somewhat similar to the Overdyed. It is the only one I've seen close to the OD.

    I did not think of that. It very well could be a sample. He sent it with a Barneys tag but they do not say Gitman on it anywhere. Honestly I can deal with the sizing as long as I don't put on any more weight but the buttons falling off is a little upsetting. If I knew how to sew it wouldn't be that big of a problem but every button along the placket needs to be resewn.

    I've seen that too ! It does resemble the navy overdye but it isn't as dark in real life. Unfortuantely, the thing to consider about anything dyed is that it will fade overtime from washing. Some parts may fade faster (maybe because I live in a tropical country and I dry my clothes under the sun) especially around the collar and pit area which makes it awkward to wear.

    Buttons falling off are pretty common on shirts. Learn how to sew and you'll be fine, it's not too difficult ;) There are a myriad of websites that will show you how. It'll just take some of your time mending them. I suggest you do that quickly before losing buttons.

    As for my case, the buttonhole stitching unravels which is annoying because you can't really fix it. It is quite a common thing for me as two or three of my GV's have that problem. Anyone else have that problem ?

    Anyone have the patchwork shirt from this season and can comment on the hand/quality of it? Also, how's that quilted shirt? Thanks

    Curious too about the patchwork shirt as I see it on sale everywhere with a decent size run. Guessing its the style that is turning off people...

    Quilted ? Is the the windbreaker shirt that you are referring to ? If yes, I just bought the burgundy one online and will update after using it for a bit

    Pretty and versatile piece IMO. Would buy if the prices fall further. It real life it is a patchwork print on twill/denim like fabric so there's nothing much to talk about except visual fanciness.

    Anybody know the difference between Gitman Brothers and Gitman Brothers Vintage?
    I found one post describing that the GBV line has an more American design, but other than that - nada.

    Kind of a "prep" staple but most would probably find it too jarring.

    What also might turn people off is it's a patchwork print and not actual patchwork fabric.

    Did anyone pick up the Daisy Cord shirt? Measurements seem quite wide. Thinking of sizing down.

    Do you think End will get more stock of a Gitman oxford that already sold out in my size? I got the wrong size on the sale, and considered getting a bigger one, but now its gone at full price as well.
