    I fit pretty well in XS BoO shirts. Would a 14.5 in the Jtg s/s shirts fit me okay?

    ^ from my experience with the 14.5 long sleeve, it might be a tad bit slimmer than xs boo

    (I fit XS boo really well, the 14.5 long sleeve felt tight in the chest and the bottom button was very tight). You gotta ask GS if their s/s are cut differently because the l/s are made to be tucked

    ^^ I'd go with a 15 and see if you think you can size down to 14.5

    I would say a JtG 17= BoO Med, 16=BoO small, so i done reckon 15 would equate to BoO xs, but they do have those half sizes to pretty much cover every one's +/-

    The s/s are meant to be untucked, but can be tucked too. It has a square hem rather than curved so it doesnt look as sloppy, and more like a shirt-jac. They also go pretty much straight down from gut to hem, so if your hips are big or flare out in relation to your body and waist, then it might sit awkward since the shirt is quite narrow around the waistband opening.

    ^^ yep, their shirts run smaller than the number would otherwise suggest

    the specs are pretty much similar, except BoO has slimmer sleeves. JtG sleeves are "normal" in width...armhole is high enough but not as tight as BoO, sleeves not as skinny as BoO, but the torso fit is nearly same.

    Love the full fit pics for the sta-prest. Does anyone know if they're going to add more inseams?

    ^^ probably not. A 32" inseam is fairly long, considering these should be worn at no break or even slightly higher. Unless you have really long legs or are taller than 6'1-2, a 32" inseam should stop right at no-break, or be too long. And iirc, there is some fabric to let it down another inch or so, but I can't remember for sure since I always get them hemmed.

    Yeah, I got to thinking that as soon as I posted. I'm about that tall, but I prefer no break anyhow. Thanks GS.

    I like the JTG Overcoat... tempting.

    And the suit worn in the video under the "Photos and stuff" link looks brilliant.

    I've been tempted by the shirts but it says the shoulders are 17" on the smalls. I can't find my tape measure at the moment but I recall my shirts being smaller than this. It's a shame really as I really want to buy a few.

    sorry BIG TYPO...I meant size 16 is a BoO med, a 15 or 15.5 would be a BoO small depending on if you fall in the larger or smaller side of "small" and the overcoat is nice, I love it. The fit is solid and it looks so much better on than in their stock pics
