Tried it on in a small today and it's huge. Small was more like a large!

Not sure if it was another glitch but the generation shirt in white linen appeared in the sale section again (only in a small). Nabbed it so i guess i'll see what happens. Does anyone have the cloud jacket in creamy paper? I've always been kinda interested in it but the price always put me off.

Nothing from the new stuff really jumps for me yet. The heavy knit is nice i guess. Wish the light border shirt was a 1940s.

True sensation: Regarding the silk versions of the great sweat, As far as I´m concerned it´s pretty much a lottery with all sweats if not trying them on in physical stores. I have the washed choco from the splash collection ( 30% silk) in a L and the fit is really great and tts as I consider myself a L in most OL garments. On the other hand I´ve tried both the cold grey silk and the navy sweat with silk added to it in L and they both were too slim. When I tried them in XL they were too big, not just cuffs and hems but the overall fit. I have ordered the Ecru in L as it also has silk added, and all I can do now is hope for the best!

good to hear that the washed choco one has a great fit. some of the silk ones looked awkward in pictures but the washed choco one and the navy silk one for example looked great. the navy silk version also looked slimmer than the others, compared the TBS pictures.

however, the new great sweats from aw12 fit bigger. i will definately size down on them (small -> xsmall)
hopefully end is going to 50% soon, they are stuck with 30% on OL since they started saling it a couple of weeks ago :/

Well, my generation shirt in white (50 linen / 50 cotton) arrived this morning. Incredibly fast shipping. As much as i love the shirt i'm slowly realising the 1940's is probably the only style that really fits me well. I think i'm going to send it back, but if anyone is interested in it on here (it's a size small) let me know. I bought it for £41 (60% off).

Anyone bought the Pot Plant shirt and washed it? Does it fade like it says on the OL site and if so what does it look like after being washed?

Does anyone have this? http://www.ourlegacy.se/store/product/category-ss12_sale/great-sweat-50s-ecru-melange How is the sizing? Going by the measurements on End I'm going to have to size down by two, which I'm not sure about.

Definitely wouldn't size down two. They're meant to fit a little boxy so don't worry about it being a bit bigger in the chest than normal. Same fitting as the other 50s sweats so go tts i'd say. I got that the other day purely because it was so cheap and it's proper nice, don't understand why it's still there in a full size run.

^Agreed. I went true with a Small and it fits perfect everywhere except the chest/underarms area, which is pretty roomy. That seems to be the fit though, as I've tried 3 different seasons versions now and they were all big in that same area.

it is sold out. i contacted them on the light blue vintage oxford, which also is available in a full size run and they told me that they work on this problem.

there are several dead links of items from previous collections that are available in a couple of sizes but are not available anymore Eye-wink

I have this as well in Medium. Decent quality and colour. I am a large-medium and it fitted me well but I would probably size down one if your a smaller medium.
