    If anyone is looking for a Inventory Items x Gitman Vintage shirt(s) in size large, PM me. I have a blue chambray, navy oxford, and blue/black tattersal to get rid of. All in excellent condition.

    should i wash my brandnew gitman oxfords before taking them to the tailor or is shrinkage only minimal/pre-washed?

    I'm not a Gitman expert, but washing before tailoring is always a good idea.

    What's special about the Inventory X Gitman collab, the cut?

    shoque: the gitman vintage shirts are washed and dried in a industrial machine before they are shipped out. so you wont get anymore shrinkage when you wash/dry. but it always a good idea to wash after getting back from the tailor. context posted an interesting article a while page with the designer of the vintage line...it has some really good stuff in it. scroll down toward the bottom of the page to view the article. http://www.contextclothing.com/eye_to_eye.php

    The cut, choice of fabrics, and some subtle details. No Box pleat in back, different gusset cut, refined shape/silo, and red back of neck button hole.

    ^ do they fit appreciably different than the regular Gitman? I take an M in those, but the arms are short for me. Do your larges fit notably slimmer, or just slightly so?

    wow really? the arms length on my gitman vintage shirts are a little long. not enough to be a deal though. the only real issue i have with gv's is the shoulder width, they are cut just a little large for my taste. but i deal with it cause of the construction, unique patterns, etc.

    to the sizing questions: i wear a medium in gv (non-flannel) and it is very similar to jcrew's "fitted" medium. the crew is actually a little larger in the body (mainly toward the bottom), but everything else is very similar.

    Does anyone know if GBV are doing flannel again this year? There was a red/blue flannel they made last year that was just unbelievable, by the time I got around to it they were sold out. Never seem them on the B/S forum either.

    I wear a medium in J.Crew as well (6'3", 180). I love the Gitman fabrics and construction, but the fit is always a but troublesome. The sleeves aren't crazy short, but i'd like them to longer for a shirt that could conceivably be worn w/ a sportcoat and tie. And I agree that the shoulders run a bit large.

    I was more curious how much different the Inventory shirts were in fit than the regular ones.

    Yeah, they are doing flannels again this year. Off the top of my head, I know that there's this on shoppenelopes. But I'm sure there are more elsewhere.

    yeah, they do have a little bit of a strange fit. but the patterns and construction make up for my lack of shoulders [​IMG] i know someone above said the inventory shirts were a little different but i havent been able to confirm. its such a popular fit you would think they wouldnt change much...but i dont know.

    in addition to what hobo mentioned, below you will find a link to a gold/green and plaid flannel. these guys usually have one of the best selections ive come across. i also searched the gitman vintage website and their still showing the summer/spring stuff. http://www.contextclothing.com/brand...hers%20Vintage
