    I'm looking into some vineyard vine collegiate/plaid shirts. I was wondering if anyone with experience with these shirts know what size i should get. Neck - 15" Waist - 30" and arm - 32"

    Medium, usually a medium is a 15-15 1/2 inch neck. These shirts are not custom made to fit. Actually, they are quite baggy. Arm will more than likely be 33-34 in length. And with that small waist of yours the shirt will not fit snug. But if your looking to wear a tie with it you need a medium to fit your neck size.

    The sleeve length might be a problem, but nothing a tailor can't fix for a small price.

    I had to have my sleeves shortened. I wear a 16.5 / 34 and bought a large VV shirt.

    Own three of these shirts. They have been pretty sturdy and a good value for business casual / weekend wear.

    Also loved the VV UNC Chapel Hill Tar Heal Bow Tie and Cummerbund set.

    Not a fan personally of their shirts.

    I'm not looking to wear a tie with it, but I should still get a medium and get a tailor to fix it?

    You honestly could wear a small. It really depends on your built. I'm 175 pounds and I can almost fit into a small. The chest is just a little snug. I would try to find a store that carries them and try them on.

    I'm a 15.5 neck, 40R suit and I am wearing a size small as I type this. Much like RL they have different fits/cuts for different shirts. This small is actually one of my best fitting shirts, whereas I have a second BD from them that is a medium and I clearly could not manage a small in that cut.

    Go to a VV store or Nordstrom's and try a couple on.

    This is why I have'n't bought anything from VV yet, I knew the sizing wasn't in my favor, I would buy their accessories and what not, but not shirts and pants

    i am 5'9" and 175 athletic build and i have shirts in small from them. i ordered a medium eliot shirt from them once and was swimming in it. strangely i have a striped oxford medium from them that fits fine. VV is generally overpriced for what you get

    I would suggest a small. But they are pricey. Overpriced if not found on sell. I would really consider trying one on.

    Exactly, you're far better getting something from B&S.
