    Fit varies, but tends to be slim. The ones that I recently received from VCH size 15.5/39 have ~44" chest, ~18.5" shoulders, ~41" waist. I also have one with the same neck size that I bought elsewhere which has 17" shoulders, 41" chest, 38" waist.

    Finamore shirts fit all over the place, be careful when buying online.

    If these are true for the vch ones those are great measurements. I think I will like it (mine is 16)

    Are those Finamore buttonholes machine-sewn, or do my eyes deceive me?

    I think they are. Finamore tend to be.

    Hi, I've often wondered what the difference is between the labels. Are there any other differences?

    Thanks A

    P.S. I have several Finamore and I think that they are lovely shirts. I just wished that I could afford the MTO programme.

    Yup, the white label hand sewing is limited to the shoulder seams. The black label has a hand sewn collar, shoulders and button holes.

    Some decadent looking shirts from virtualclotheshorse. I was wondering how you guys like them and how they compare in fit to say rlpl, rlbl, barba, and borrelli? [​IMG]
    I bought this exact shirt from virtualclotheshorse...and it is stunning. The construction is nice and the fabric has a great hand to it. As for fit, it's pretty slim for an OTR shirt.

    STF has the skinny Finamore - not for anyone who isn't an endurance athlete.

    Nice to hear. I was hesitant at first and was only going to get the blue twill. The white/berry stripe would have to be slim in order for me to pull it off.
    I ordered both. Can't wait to get them. Thanks for the info!!

    +1. Be very careful with this.

    They look good but the lack of measurements keeps me from buying from VCH.

    I bought jackets from VCH with no problems.
    Maybe I was lucky. Email Lance. He very responsive.
