Did anyone pick up these or another pair of Vast Cuts? Apparently the rise makes up for the shorter inseam. A 48 is just short on a 30" leg. Trying to see how long the full leg is.

Is anyone after the Acid Print Box Shirt in a 44? I just got one and it's not for me, unfortunately.

thinking about buying the suede zip. can anyone give me some advice on sizing? i know that some of you have it and the measurements seem a bit weird on the web. shoulders seems to be very wide even on the smaller sizes and the chest rather thin. cheers for any help Cool

The general rule was to size up, but I've not seen many people posting about the zip shirt the last few seasons.

The Acid Print shirt I posted above has been returned and is no longer available now.

I picked up an old zipped one from 2014 recently and sized up to a 48 (usually a 46). Sleeves are a tiny bit too long but mostly fits really well.

i'm a size 46 in most of their stuff, but got a 48. fits slim overall but happy with it as a zip shirt. could've easily (and was considering) getting a 50, and its a bit roomier but not by a large amount.

Received the crushed tiles box shirt in a 46 today but it's too big, if anyone's interested can do for £165 inc. postage (RRP £195)

Do you recommend sizing down on the crushed tiles? I'm usually between a 46 and 48 depending on the item. Considering going with the 46 for that shirt.

Yeah I’d say it’s worth sizing down if you’re between sizes, I’m keeping the 44 and it’s still a loose fit.

Do you all size up in the Classic Shirt? I got the classic shirt in black silk yesterday, and not sure whether my other OL shirts in small are baggier, whether i just don't like the fit, or if it's the material used.

classic shirt is defo a bit more fitted. could warrant a size up, but would watch put for sleeve length problems then

A little advice s'il vous plaît

I bought a shirt on the bay which was size 50 but neglected to check the measurements the guy put on the listing.

Has anyone come across an OL shirt that comes up so small or could it have been tailored?

Pit to Pit: 22"
Shoulders: 18"
Collar to hem (on back) 28"

Looks unnaturally short to me. That's the old label so from quite a way back when their sizing really was all over the place, but I have a bunch of shirts from that era in a 50 and none of them were ever below 30" collar to hem. If it's been tailored there should be some signs, slightly different colour stitching etc.
