If the chest peaks out by the armpit at the side of the pocket, Neph, would you expect that to drape better with washing, wearing and softening?

I don't quite know what you mean mate... but it sounds like a crease in a weird place, so the answer is it will break in and calm down some, but it could also mean the shirt is a bit big.

Personally I couldn't decide if you needed to size down based on your pics the other day. I'd say you were good of you were happy with a relaxed fit, but could probably do one down too.

I see a lot of folks buying and wearing this as a regular shirt, and if you can pull that off then great, but it isn't designed to do that, so judging it by normal IH western standards doesn't really work. My advice to you would be to try it with the rest of your wardrobe. Stick your wabby shirt under it, stick a hoodie under it, wear a t shirt combo under it. See what works best.

Thanks for all the comments about the oxidation of the buttons. I guess that silvery oxidized look is unique to the OD version. So any old timers had any opinions about the copper ones?

#1 An outstanding look, because only the dying process makes this happen!
#2 Overdying the 76 without snaps was a great move at this time.

This “shirt” is so good! Sizing up from XL to XXL definitely would have been a mistake. I’ll probably be wearing this exclusively as an over shirt. Obligatory fit pic over my 276:

Personally I prefer the oxidized copper to the original copper. The OD’ed fabric has a sort of worn, distressed vibe to it and the tarnished snaps work well with that. The clean copper looks good too though. If I was going to make changes to snaps on this shirt, I’d go with silver. They are crying out for some GAH.

My thanks for fit advice to @gniquil @rydor @jordan23 @theorocks @jordanscollected @yannis and @neph93. I've decided to keep it, and use it as a jacket over a thin flannel. It's sooooo nice. Such colours popping.

I am not a huge fan of overdyed stuff. But these shirts look great. Also I love the tarnish on the snaps.

Judging by these pictures that is an excellent decision. These really are very flexible pieces of clothing, they work great over sweatshirts, hoodies and vests too.

Yes, looks great, and you wouldn't want an additional inch in those shoulders. It'll relax further, and you could get a thin wool thermal under there and you're good to go whatever the weather. Most importantly, looks sharp!

That's going to be great for years @Richard. That smidge too big is much better than a bit small restricting layering ability. I want one badly. I asked the wife, and i believe i was completely ignored.

Enjoy it before it gets too hot.
