    Hey nullspace,

    I received my size 366 black glacier denim on Monday and I would say that I did not notice it being drastically different than my size 36 9oz oxford, yosemite or highlands. It may be a smidge trimmer, but nothing major from my perspective.

    I own 3 of their shirts all 42. I ordered the Glacier shirt in a 42 and it was noticably slimmer. I ordered a 44 to decide which one would be better. The 44 was perfect. The dnim is pretty stretchy so it does give but doesnt remain. My recomendation is to size up one. FairEnds also recommends this.
    Also if you intend to wear a s jacket or over anything besides a tshirt. Then may want to go 2 sizes.

    Wish they would announce a winner of the rugby shirt Facebook contest before more sizes sell out

    Are you serious? If you want it that bad, buy the shirt...and if by chance you win it, why not have another in a different color or give it away as a gift.

    Well the reason they do it is to get some low-cost advertisement. It costs them one shirt and it garners tons of eyes. So it's not too much to ask, I don't think, to have a winner announced at the time they say they'll announce it, which the night before it goes on sale.

    I ended up returning the pants, I wore them around my place for a bit and the fit just wasn't right. I measured them and it turns out they are almost a whole size smaller than the original run of camp pants, which themselves were a size smaller than the size charts for TS pants indicate.

    I love the concept that these guys are working towards and the stuff I have that does fit well are amongst the best clothes I own, but I can't understand how sizing can vary so much in a brand that's this small (and where the owners and designers are so deeply involved in the design and manufacturing process). It's irritating (and for me, expensive in shipping and duties). Perhaps I'm missing something (I do not and never have owned or operated a clothing line), but I think that TS really needs to tighten up this aspect of their operation (especially with regards to having accurate size charts for each style, not just generic charts).

    or buy then return if you wanted it so badly...dont just hope you win...ive been playing that card for 3 years every week but if there is something i want I buy it regardless, and am usually the first person to buying it.

    Yes. I'm a TS fan but this could be better.
    Still surprised by the whole run of denim utility shirts that were 2" long in the arm than usual!
    Never marked in size charts. TS folks just mentioned it in passing on this forum.

    The jeans also vary significantly in inseam length - I've had two pairs arrive in one order, and their inseams differed by a full 2". They've also sent the wrong model twice (and immediately corrected the problem at no extra cost to me, I should add).

    That said, they're a young company, making a quality product entirely in San Francisco, at a reasonable price (and their jeans fit me damn well), so I'm willing to tolerate a few operational quirks with good humor. Never tried their shirts, though, since OTR shirts never fit me in the neck. A variance of 2" in the sleeve would be damned irritating.

    I think having size charts specific to each run would solve all of these problems. If sizing is going to vary so much, then this has to happen. For what it's worth, on the website there is a note about the duck camp pants fitting smaller - but the size chart is still the same. If these are the first pair of pants you've ordered from them, comparing the size to other TS products isn't going to help.

    It's because of this sort of issue (not isolated to just TS) that I'm moving away from online shopping. I just costs too much to keep buying and returning.

    I know this is a stretch, but you could always contact their CS and ask their opinion. Always responsive and helpful to me.

    Placed an order for the chore pant in charcoal. Wanted to give those a try for awhile.
