    You actually missed one.

    ---

    They do not make size XS as that would be my size down. I am actually looking for an anti-fit, boxy cut so size up to M or just stay w/ small?

    I would say go tts, I don't understand why anyone would size down on them, as they are cut to be in that certain pattern and fit in a relaxed way.

    This isn't as great as it looks in TBS pics, but it's still pretty cool.

    It looks like a slim fitting and quite short knit.
    Since it's 100% linen it's gonna be breezy and nice for summer, although not very comfortable. Linen is not very soft and can stretch quite a lot.
    I'm going to TBS tomorrow to try this one out. Can post here afterwards.

    Just came back from TBS. Since people been asking for some input/reviews, here's what I think of the stuff I tried on.

    [​IMG]
    Great Sweat navy melange
    Very nice fabric for being 100% cotton. Not that papery feeling you sometimes get from sweatshirts. Of course, I don't know how it will feel after a wash.
    It is soft and very comfy. Also quite durable. I don't think it will stretch much.
    The fit is a little bit on the boxy side. The pic perfectly demonstrate how it should be worn. It was a tad bit big in the chest for me but tapers down to the hem.
    My only complaint is that I think the ribbed (?) hems are a bit too long. Half the length would have been good.
    The neckline is very nice though and is laid on top of the garment, if you get me.
    The ones in the towel fabric were even softer but looked a bit weird to me.
    Did not buy.

    [​IMG]
    Roundneck knit grey melange
    This one's nice. Great speckled color of grey, neutrals and some splashes of light brown.
    It's lightweight and 100% linen, which means that it's not very soft, it's breezy (perfect for summer) and it will stretch. The SA said it will stretch all directions (longer and wider).
    The fit slim but not tight. Arms are narrow and long (good) and the body tapers from the chest down to the hem. Like the great sweat, it a bit on the shorter side.
    Size large measures 25 inches neck to hem, 21 inches P-P, 18 shoulders and 21 arms from pit.
    Again, the pic is very accurate in terms of fit.
    Since it's linen, it's a knit you should care about. You can't through it in the washing machine with a bunch of other stuff. Hand wash cold only, if ever.
    I bought it in size L. For reference, I'm 6'3, 40 chest, 18.5 shoulders.

    [​IMG]
    Single Peacoat long navy proof
    They didn't have my size (50) so I tried a 48.
    First impression was that it's not as shiny as I thought. The color is quite dull. This pic is more accurate than the one on TBS.
    It's also completely unlined and very thin. It's 100% waxed cotton. Felt a bit too paper-ish to me.
    The sleeves were not as narrow as I would like and the overall silhouette was too wide.
    Did not buy.

    I tried the 1950's Shirt Four Ex Paisley today, fit is very baggy.

    So what's the correct way of identifying the fit of OL shirts? By the indicated year?

    There are different fits like first shirt, 1940s, 1950s etc.

    Pocket placement is kinda weird, as for fabric it's OL so it'll probably be super super nice

    I received my jean jacket last week. Color is great, the same color as pictured on TBS. As far as the quality, the fabric is very light and quite thin. I think this is due to the linen. The fabric resembles more of a denim shirt, but it still looks like a jacket. Great for layering and those hot spring/summer days. Fit is a little boxy, which a jean jacket should be anyways. I like it and have already layered it a few days out of the week, as it is still cold in San Francisco this time of year.

    Just received my silk cardigan from TBS today (http://www.tresbienshop.com/brand/our-legacy/knitted-cardigan-smoke-navy).
    The fit is great, albeit tighter than other OL knits I have. I don't know a lot about raw silk, but I'm hoping it relaxes a bit.
    Apart from that, the details are amazing and the fabric has a bit of sheen to it, on account of the silk.

    Just got the 1940's chambray from TBS lightning fast shipping as always.

    And holy shit I'm blown away, LOVE the fit. The slim arms are GREAT and the slight looseness in the body is awesome too as I'm not too fond of skin tight shirts anyway. Only thing is that the collars are too small, which sucks but I guess I won't button them up ever.

    Currently looking at the 1950's paisley shirt found here: http://www.endclothing.co.uk/brands/our-legacy/our-legacy-1950s-button-down-shirt-89515.html

    Anyone can help me compare the the two shirts?

    I heard the the length is a touch longer on the 1950's, but with higher scallops so it sorta evens out. However, are the arms just as slim, and also how about the collar?
