    Hey guys, I've never purchased a Gitman shirt, but I wear a M in BoO, what is my recommended sizing? Also, would the white GV button down work as a dress shirt?

    I think you'd be a small too like MSSneaker said the neck will be tighter.

    I don't think it would work as a dress shirt with a suit. The white shirts are oxfords which are more for business casual. I think they will work well tucked in with khakis/chinos and maybe a tie, but not for more formal settings.

    Probably a small, though the Gitman is going to be tighter in the neck.

    +1, but due to the small collars, I don't know how you could comfortably leave the top button done all-day long. The collar size is my main issue with gitman shirts, I wish they were bigger

    Just tried some on today, and the sizing of each small seemed to vary. I tried a color-check one, and a plain white one, and the first fit perfect and the second I couldn't even button. WTF?!

    Yeah Gitman is kind of known to be inconsistent in sizing.

    What kind of Gitman shirt do I have? I recently came into possession of a white Gitman Bros. Oxford Shirt. Fabric is nice and thick and is labelled "TTX". Fit is very slim, which makes me doubt it's a mainline Gitman? There is a box pleat on the back, but no locker loop or back collar button. Label says "Gitman Bros." and below that, "Made in USA" Navy Blue background with Beige letters and a green outline around it. Like this: [​IMG] Labelled as size "M". Chest pocket has a stitched chevron type detail, a subtle "V" if you will fropm the top down 1/3 of the pocket.

    Generally, their oxfords are cut slightly smaller than their other shirts.

    Yeah, looking at the sizing chart for Context, on average, their oxfords seem to run smaller but even the white and pink oxfords vary in size of sleeve length and length. I wish they could at least keep the oxfords the same size.

    Does anyone own this Japanese organic shirt? I would really love to get my hands on the blue version, shown below, in a size small. Not feeling the other colour combos as much.
    If someone knows where I can find a shop carrying one (besides woodwood) please PM me. Thanks. I would also be open to buying one used if someone would be willing to part with theirs.

    Barneys has a few things left in their sale. There's still some mediums left in there, but I only saw 1 small. The rest of the stuff is larger sizes.
