    I've been eyeing that. Mind posting a fit pic some time?

    Check WAYWT. Its a size Large. It fits great everywhere except for its a tiny bit short. The XL was only .5 inches longer though.

    I have the Large as well. Incredible shirt. It's a bit short, I agree, but it's rapidly become one of my favorite pieces. Wanted to post a fit pic, but need to get some upload/sizing images sorted...

    Just picked up the KMW chambray from Context. Fit is slim on the large--tempted to size up for a more relaxed fit.

    Does anyone know if the chambray will shrink when washed?

    Amazing shirt by the way. KMW never fails to impress me.



    Shrinkage is negligible provide that you only wash in cold water and hang dry. Recommend against sizing up if the shoulder fits.

    Agree that the KMW chambray shirt is cut shorter but that is what I like about it. One of my favorite for summer along with 2 Chimala shirts.

    In my experience, the Rockers' stretch was negligible. I struggled into a 32x34 with my 25 inch thighs, and the jeans never gave the way I wanted them to.

    On a somewhat related note, do you think 32x34 KMW 1950's will fit somebody w/ 24 inch thighs?

    I have to agree. The only way I made my rockers fit better was by dropping 10 pounds.

    Yes. I currently wear a 34 in the 1950s, but could have sized down to a 33, maybe a 32. 32s for 24 inch thighs would be ideal IMO.

    Yes. I have the 32x34, 33" true waist and 24" thighs. Snug at first, perfect after a week.

    they look like they already have dipper ass and hip flare.... Not a good fit if that's the case and it will only get worse
