    Who said full size? I wear medium in both. Read above Steven Alan is slightly smaller. [​IMG] Anyway, great brand that's a little overpriced. Of course the lack of one-off, bleeding edge, eurotrash fashions will make certain folks bored.
    Fail. A word of advice: insults are likely to be much more on point if you do a little research first.

    are the sweaters and such oversized as well? i wanted to buy one of their cardigans that I haven't tried on...

    i bought a small SA cardigan and it doesnt fit me...so I figured medium would fit....ideas?

    (i typically wear a small actually....def a small in j crew shirts at least.)

    I have several SA shirts and would consider them good quality material, although their retail price is a bit high. Fit depends on body type. I have a stockier build, so these shirts fit my frame better than brands such as BoO. I find these run true to size. I am a L in both SA and J Crew.

    Yeah I don't get him either...it's pretty common to size down in J.Crew because their stuff is so damn big.

    Who said full size? I wear medium in both. Read above Steven Alan is slightly smaller. [​IMG]

    Right it's slightly smaller than a baggy J.Crew. What size do you wear in other brands? I'm willing to bet it's a L, or your J.Crew/S.Alan stuff fits baggy.

    Check it...I'm a small in J. Crew, BoO, SA, EG, WWM, Rag & Bone....etc. and no bagginess on the Crew and and SA stuff.

    Pass

    What research needs to be done? Classic American style with subtle nuances.

    Let's duke it out at:

    I'll be there at 6pm sharp [​IMG]

    OK, I'll do a little...
    Mine:
    (M) Steven Alan reverse seam shirts are 21" pit to pit. (+1 Timbaland)
    (M) J.Crew Secret Wash button-down shirt 22" pit to pit.
    Not mine:
    (L) A.P.C. Pit-to-pit: 20.5" http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=88593

    To the threadstarter, don't be confused when some posters claim that steven alan is oversized. The people saying that probably think all shirts are meant to be sized like BoO, Hickey, etc. If it helps, I have a few Steven Alan reverse seam shirts in size medium and the pit to pit measurements on them is 21".

    to the op--DO be confused. my recently purchased (via gilt) reverse seam shirt in size SMALL has the same 21" pit-to-pit measurement.

    mine happens to be one of the made-in-peru versions so that could explain the discrepancy

    Interesting. I have 4 SA Reverse Seam shirts (medium) and they were all made in the USA and have the same pit to pit measurement of 21". Maybe the foreign made shirts are the reason for all the discrepancies.

    Not everything from Europe is Eurotrash, and it's not necessarily a bad word.

    SSniceguy: Marseilles is amazing! Have a great trip. Try La Miramar. Take lots of photos.
    SSdick: Maybe you should learn to spell it it before eating your peasant food food. Be sure to pack your eurotrash banana hammock.

    ^That's a joke, seriously, have a great time. Although fashion week is a great time to be in New York, I'm quite jealous [​IMG]

    Fashion night out tonight! Let me know if anyone needs me to pick anything up for them. SA or otherwise.

    Anybody know how the flannels for Fall are cut? I am only 5'6 so a lot of shirts can't be worn untucked.

    Is this fashion night thing a sale or something? Or is everything retail price?

    I like it. Okay, I propose a truce. Google banana hammock.

    Is this fashion night thing a sale or something? Or is everything retail price?

    It seems they will have a few shirts for $95. I'll let you know.

    It's not just SA either, everyone from Dior to Urban Outfitters is doing some sale/promotion tonight.

    It really upsets me that they make XXS sizes, but only for the japanese market. Boggles the mind why they aren't on the website at least.

    They're shorter than their other shirts, but something about the fit is off. I tried it on at Barney's...SA always sucks me in with their fall "looks", then turns me away with their fit

    Yes it fits a bit more roomy than the reverse seam shirts.
