Hey guys, dunno if this has been other people's experience as well, but I found the moleskin westerns to fit a full size smaller than the flannel versions.

That sounds right. People have been sizing down a size in the flannels

Yes. In the moleskins, I tried two sizes and liked the size up in the chest (more slouchy), but the arm openings and length were wayyyyy too big. The TTS for me was "correct" but I found it a touch slim in the chest/shoulders for my current preferences. It's a great shirt though!

For the flannels, there shouldn't be shrinkage. I imagine the moleskin is the same. Wythe's stuff is typically pretty washed already

So Flannels = size down, molskines = TTS (or up).

Has anyone bought one of the herringbone work shirts yet?

I thought flannels = tts? At least that's what seems to be the received wisdom in the nwma thread and from Wythe directly.

@gdl203?

"intended fit"

Also, 18'' shoulder measurement for a size M, if this does indeed equate to a size L ("size down"), is pretty damn small imho.

Just saying what everyone else said at the top of this page. I think most people have sized down on the flannel and went TTS for moleskin.

I get it. But saying the same thing over and over again doesn't make it right. :fence:

I am gonna stick to my guns on this one! ?

...might just be to order the size you need depending on the fit you are looking for. It's a crazy idea for sure, but it might just work!
