    I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed with their shirts when they get them in the mail over the next few days.

    I wasn't expecting it to be the be all end all of button downs, but the fabrics look good and hopefully the cut is as well.

    I was just wondering if there was any reason in particular why you though that people would be disappointed.

    A lot of people are expecting BoO or Thom Browne type fits.

    im only 5'8, every other shirt goes way below the crotch

    Amen to that. And sometimes you don't want to tuck in your shirt because well..you just don't want that kind of look and it bothers me when sometimes the shirt pillows out and you keep having to stuff it in.

    Interesting. That looks very good but I would expect you to be a medium based on your build. Guess you know better. Wonder how a medium would look on you though.

    I would be a medium if my chest and shoulders were smaller. I would look like the Oak model in a medium, which is not how I, personally, want a madras to fit.

    I think a medium would look way better on you.

    You wouldn't look like that model either. That dude looks like that because he is a sickly freak, not because of the size he got.

    Also, thanks for posting a fit pic.

    Context measures a medium to 21-21.5. My chest is 43.5", it wouldn't even fit. Also, I couldn't afford to loose another .75" in the shoulders and still move comfortably. The fit looks looser through the torso since i have a 33" waist.

    I think the fit looks 100% fine. What do you think is off about it? Super slim shirts aren't always the answer.

    I think the fit looks good, just not great. The only thing that really bothers me are the sleeves seem to hang just a tad bit too low and loose on his biceps. I don't know if that is due to the size or just the general cut of the shirt, but if he works out at all it would be much more flattering if the fit is slightly different there. Also, I suppose the sides could be taken in a tad. I know not all shirts should fit super slim, but I think this one should fit at least reasonably slim, mainly to avoid looking old-manish (not that you do in this pic).. I mean this is the kind of shirt that a lot of older people would wear. But all in all I'm just nit-picking.. Didn't mean to poop on your parade.
