Can someone please explain the difference of AD and BD?
In short: BD is a very slim cut with back darts. AD is a bit less slim (still slim, but not as slim as the BD) with no back darts and slightly more roomy fit in the sleeves, chest, and waist than the BD.
I loved the one said:
BD- before dinner You're slimmer and tighter
AD- after dinner you're a bit bigger and looser, but not by much.
That's my favorite explanation. Who knows if it's actually correct.
You need to restock your sizes on the website theres like nothing left!
You're late to the game. They are older styles that have mostly sold through and they are made in limited runs so you need to grab them while you can. The more he keeps selling, the more available size runs in future releases.
I wanted to renew my closet of work clothes, wanted to grab bunch of shirts for work. Oh well i guess I will wait when they restock! I see 1 i like but i wanted to grab few at a time lol!
Hey Maura, great shirt, thanks for shipping it out so quickly.
I might have to exchange for an XS. Current S measures about 20.5", a little looser than expected. And with the neck increase, I might have to size down. What's the sleeve length on XS and how much shrinking can we expect?
I haven't tried a small AD shirt. I've considered it, but I'm pretty broad-shouldered, and the 18" shoulder of the M fits perfect, as does the length of the sleeves and shirt itself. But I'll wear my red & blue tattersalle shirt a few times in the next few weeks before the new shirts debut so I can give it some thought.
Hey I'm 5'9 ish and weigh 135-140.. What size would I be in the Before dinner button downs?
Shrinkage is the same you could receive 1% to %% total garment, depending on wash. Feel free to try an XS and see what's up. I know I have some left. I think it will be to small.
20.5 is not to far off the mark. Like I said" the cutter could have cut a little less . The shirts are cut all by hand. So that;s a .25 inch per side. The seem allowance could have been less than normal, that could have caused a little extra.
Please note Oxford cloth s a very loose weave and shrinks a little more than other shirtings.
Peoples body's and the fabrics I use are always different so I will never make a truly perfect RTW , no one will. I will see if anything has been changed but I doubt it . I will fill everyone one Monday.
New oxfords are amazing. Fit, fabric, construction, all of it. Some of your best stuff yet.
would you recommend your XS BD shirts for someone who's 5'6.5" with a 34" chest?
considering buying a couple shirts but i wanna make sure first
Thanks Mauro. i was just referencing older BD size charts, as this is my first BD. (I have 2 AD). I think older charts list S at 19.5, XS at 18.25, which would be too small.
I'll probably keep it. It looks just like it does on RKD, as we're pretty similar in build. A warm wash or a little drying will probably shrink it just right. The fabric is awesome. I'm inspired to take a macro shot of the collar, will post tomorrow when light is out.
Thanks for the good words everyone.
maritimetimetime - you wear a 36 shirt. If you wear a 34 shirt your chest is around 32 inches.
gfreeman- you are in the club!
Got a charcoal yesterday in AD XL. Instant booty. You keep me looking good Mauro, thanks again.
