No one's going to convince you that you ought to like the shirt you just bought. But BOO looks really good on people w/ the right body type. This is why people keep buying it

Thanks for the input! I know BoO is for tall skinny guys, but I thought sizing up would fit an athletic build. As for the buttons, these are the buttons that I have:

They do not look like other melamine buttons I googled, but I might be wrong...

I've had a couple fall off with very little wear. Not that big a deal, I can get them re-stitched for almost nothing, still, their sewing can be pretty weak. That's not an issue of the buttons themselves, though.

Yea, stitching on the buttons is notoriously bad. The buttons themselves are great though, very distinctive in color/size

Besides the buttons, wish the sizing was more consistent. Seems to be getting smaller and smaller every year.

Thread revival.

What are your guys' chest measurement compared to your BoO shirt's P2P measurements? I'm wondering because I'm a 34-35" chest. Would a XS BoO fit? Seems like P2P on XS ranges from 17.5" to 18"..

Ah. So the shirts you had weren't constricting or skin tight?

not sure if you wanna make the effort but I know a store near me has a bunch of BoO shirts (including if i remember correctly, blue in a sz small) on sale (20% off I believe). Give em a call and see if they'd do a phone order
