Wythe slate houndstooth flannel, straight out of the box. So soft: what my niece would’ve called a hugging shirt when she was 5.

Can anyone confirm how accurate the custom shirt size detail is for standard sizes?
I'm looking at a 15.5 slim and the detail says the chest is 22.5". Pit to pit, 22.5" is pretty big for 15.5 collar. I just measured my most wearable relaxed fitting shirt and it's 21".
I don't want to size down the chest only to find out that the size chart is not accurate.

They have standard sizes? For the same price you can get a shirt with your exact measurements.

Yeah, I guess what I'm asking is, is the sizing detail, ordered vs size chart, accurate? I'm going to order a shirt soon so I guess I'm about to find out!
To be honest, sometimes I just like to select a size and roll with it. I was just surprised that a slim 15.5 shirt has a chest measurement of 45".

Can anyone comment on the shrinkage / shrinkage allowance of the cotton-linen oxfords? I found the cotton oxfords to shrink more than other cottons (despite PC’s shrinkage allowance), so I always increase the measurements here and there, mostly in the sleeve length. Not sure if I should do the same with the cotton-linen oxfords.

I’d recommend doing the same with the cotton-linen fabrics. I have three and they did shrink noticeably with cold wash/hang dry. Mostly in sleeve length, but some in the chest/body. I’ll be adding 0.25 inches to my dimensions for any future orders of those fabrics (like I do for the heavy oxfords).

Really like the fabrics otherwise and would recommend them.

Perfect shirt for fall & winter; fabric is super heavy & warm. Moreover, you never have too much brown.

Conversely, I’ve found my linens do not shrink at all (or proper cloth adjusts too much)
