    I agree with most of your points. I think if I rolled the sleeves up more, like they do in the fit pics it would solve that problem. And yea it could be taken in a tad as well. Its the right size, it just doesnt fit my body perfectly without tailoring really.

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

    Yah the shoulders fit real well I just think it needs the adjustments you mentioned..

    Overall, real cool shirt. I hope they get a restock soon.

    I'm back to wanting the purple L/S number. I guess those photos elsewhere were just really BRIGHT.

    Got my L/S gitman in a couple days ago. For reference, I'm 6 foot, about 180 lbs.

    This is a size medium and seems to fit pretty well; however, I was thinking about returning it and getting a size large since the medium is a little too snug in the chest for my liking and maybe a tad too short in the sleeves. Any opinions?

    Sorry for the wrinkles.

    Exchange it for the large size.

    Something else isn't working there. I don't know if it's the pants or maybe you should try rolling up the sleeves. The whole look doesn't fit you IMO.

    Edit- It's the pants. I love that shirt, but those pants bring out the dullness in it.

    Edit again- Scroll up and look at the same shirt but with jeans bringing out the blue. Looks way better.

    Yeah, I wouldn't necessarily wear this shirt with khakis I just had a pair on when I took these pics. I was mostly looking for comments regarding the fit of the shirt. Thanks for the input. It seems like I'm gonna have to exchange it for a large...

    Don't exchange it. You're looking for only a fraction of the extra chest room that the next size up would actually give you. Plus the shirt fits well everywhere else.

    Keeping the medium isn't an option IMO. It might be a better overall fit than the large, but it's still too constricting and at that price you want it to fit perfectly. Either get the large and have it tailored, or return it and look for something cut better for you. You're not a BoO model. You're a big guy and you don't need slim fitting clothes.

    I think a large would fit better.
