Thanks, tobias. I had forgotten to place an order, but that settles it for me. I'll be getting a few in my usual S.

Well, I'm definitely glad I sized up. I recently got a Nero and Caligula shirt in medium. After reading the description, and checking the measurements, I went with a large for the Westwood and Brando I ordered. They fit just about perfectly. They're a bit longer than I usually wear shirts, but I'm hoping they'll shrink after the first wash. I also hope they soften up a bit after the first wash. They feel like they've been starched. For reference, I have about a 40" - 41" chest.My Westwood Cotton Rollnecks arrived today. According to the measurements, they run a little smaller than the Bamboo variant, but I find the fit to be indistinguishable—my usual size fits me best. Going a size up was way too big.
The fabric and dye are pretty sick. Already placed a second order for some more now that I've got the sizing confirmed.
For reference, I'm 5'11, 155lbs with a 38" chest and wear a medium.
I've tried on a Caligula in small and found it to be a little short and very slim throughout the body—almost skin tight, like a base layer. Technically it fits, but it's not the look I'm going for. The medium, however, is still slim in the arms and chest like I like it, but drapes better.re: tobias
Yeah, I don't wanna muddy the waters too much on sizing info since my westwood's haven't come in yet --
but i'm just over 5'8" and 145 lbs and wear an S in Caligula's, and not that BMI is everything, but that means I have a slightly higher bmi than you, and my weight's not in my legs that's for sure. So I can believe if you wear size M's in Caligula's, the size L's would be noticeably too big on you
Awesome. After basically living in the tanks while the weather was warm, I came to the conclusion that if you end up tweaking the cut at all, the neckline could drop a hair (1" or less) and the straps could be a shade thinner.Yes. I am starting now so I am hoping for more u-neck and tanks in March.
Bleh. I mean, I use reddit, but I don't find it a very good replacement for an actual forum. It's a news aggregator. I mean, it's alright for things like /r/frugalmalefashion, because you'd want to view that sub by filtering for new. But, it's terrible for anything that require continuity, especially discussions.
reddit sucks for this kind of things. threads always dying and stuff. pointlessBleh. I mean, I use reddit, but I don't find it a very good replacement for an actual forum. It's a news aggregator.
