It's worth peeking again - I just fixed a few inventory problems, so there's more stock showing now.
Do you have measurements for the Freenote Shelton in med and large? I have the Lancaster flannel and the fit guide is way under spec. Just curious if the Shelton is the same. What's the pit to pit on a med and large? Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk
I just pulled ours from stock and measured:
20.5" on the Medium
21" on the Large
How do you size for this? I'm generally between a M and a L. Most of the time I am a Large. Is this the heavy, droopy style in which case it will stretch? I'm checking the wings and horns website and it says that the L measures around 41.6 inches in the chest. Should I go with the Large or would it be too big?

We sold that piece in Large in-store yesterday - a guy ran in the second I unlocked the doors, bought it, and ran out.
For reference though, if you can find it elsewhere, the Large fit both him and I very well - I'm 6'3"/190/44R, and he was a little broader than me. It was fitted but not snug for us.
I'd suggest sizing down for you - I'm usually an XL in W+H sizing.
Hmm I kind of want that Orslow Chambray shirt. How lightweight is it? I have a small OrSlow washed denim work which fits like a glove, should I go for a small in this shirt too?
Btw my compliments on your customer service, it was great a while back when I received a wrong item.
Shoot us an email (hello at standardandstrange.com ) with the chest measurement on your washed denim workshirt, and I'll confirm against our stock for you.
It's a medium-weight chambray, inline with pretty much all the other chambray we have on hand in the shop.
I just added some Tender pieces to sale inventory.
The photos aren't great, but it's really hard to nail it with William's work.
My personal favorite is the 129 slim jean in the woad-overdyed sideways wool-cotton herringbone.
I stopped by Standard & Strange. Lots of goodies still on sale at huge savings. I am going to head back this week and look at the Private White jackets.
Those of you who are fans of Momotaro denim or who are looking for made in Japan work shirts, might enjoy this. Standard & Strange has shirts made for them by Momotaro in exclusive fabrics and cuts.
They have many colors and fabrics to choose from. I picked this heavy pink chambray. The feel of the cotton is remarkable and you can see the detail in the weave on the close up. The shirts also have lots of cool details- vintage club and point collars, vintage plackets and buttons, gussets and triple stitching on the shoulder.
They also have a lot of boots now, Red Wing, Alden and just added Trickers (The two in the photo). The two times I've been in the store recently there are always guys trying on and buying boots. Nice to have such a wide range of quality boots to choose from.
@StrangeJeremy is the pink shirt chambray or heavy oxford cloth? I've had a bunch of PM's asking.
It's a fairly heavy oxford with a decent bit of crunch to it.
The look and feel reminds me of the heavy 60's oxford cloth that you can't find on dress shirts anywhere. I'd love this in a classic early 60's Ivy Style button down (just in case you are looking for suggestions )
Not a bad idea - you should check out the OrSlow button down white chambray when you're back in - Ichiro is very dedicated to that particular era.
Here's a couple macros of that heavy ox:
