    Really? I was going to swing by Blackbird tonight to check one of them out, but I have two BF OCBDs (size 0) so there might not be a need.

    Any idea how the sizing would match up?

    I think it's the shoulder width of the medium that's making it look weird on you. It's a little too small, making your shoulders look small and the rest of your body look large. Too bad though because the length of the body and the sleeves seems to be pretty good.

    A few new shirts were added at context (blue pinpoint and white oxford).

    Obviously it is different for everyone, but I just purchased the blue oxford in M. The fit could not have been any better for me. No tailoring necessary. The construction is pretty nice too -- better than any BoO shirt I have purchased (although I guess that is not saying much).

    Pretty sure they make or made BoO as well.

    Anybody buy the h(y)r collective version yet? Wondering if the cut is any different.

    I have the red and gray coming in the mail. I understand the cuts on the h(y)r collective to be identical to the vintage, save for the height of the side gussets on the h(y)r.

    On that note, where's the Gitman x SF collab?

    the shirts look great! I haven't had a chance to check this entire thread or look online for measurements but can anyone quickly tell me if these compare to mediums in JCrew shirts? I'd love to buy one for myself.

    I've been eyeing the blue oxford on Context, though I'm wondering if a small would fit me, I'm XS in Uniqlo and APC

    fit on these is kind of whack IMO. way too much of a flare at the bottom

    I agree with you. It sucks it seems as though im between sizes S-M for Gitman and L-XL for BoO.

    Anyone have other suggestions in the 100-200 dollar range. Its frustrating bc im 6 feet tall average athletic build... shouldnt be this hard to find a nice quality, fitted oxford shirt.

    Help!
