(Sorry for small hijack)


I do not own their sweat pants.  I have Medium shorts in their hybrids.  In their medium terry... I have Medium and Large crews.  I prefer the Large for the gym as I like sizing up and rolling up my sleeves.  The medium fits better.  Same would go with their hoodie. 

 

I recommend looking for a lightweight terry in their hoodie, though.  Perfect weight for the gym.

 

If you are going to purchase RC... do so through their website.  CAD is weak so you won't do much better unless you are finding their pieces on sale (which happens frequently).  Shipping is expensive ($25 CAD)... but if you are buying multiple pieces... it's the way to go.

M escos on me are tapered for sure.  I have no issues pulling them up my ankle slightly to show a little skin - and they stay.  They also wear well down towards the top of my shoes - not loose.  Very happy and I feel as if they fit as they were intended.  It will most likely hug you well around the calf and the mid-point of the knee.  Comfortable fit. 

 



Gym kit= some form of nike flyknits, lululemon/2XU tights, lululemon shorts and JE Scar/Curve tank tops. Light enough for running, mainly love the long, track and field inspried fit. I agree with escobars not necessarily being "gym appropriate", but JE tank tops are the ones to beat

damn.  I'm 6 ft 185 pounds and went with a large.  I looked at the model photos of the very skinny model wearing a medium and it looks like his arms are barely fitting into the sleeves, so that's why I went with the large as my arms are definitely bigger. The length on the back doesn't bother me but you've been worrying me with your last few posts on the henley

I'm 6'1 185 and the large is just a much baggier look. the material feels like it opens up a bit more and the length is just way too long for something that i'd want to wear, especially a henley. also i just wasen't very happy with the color, it looks more like a grey than a black. the product pictures are so misleading and doesnt look like a washed black it just looks like a solid dark grey.

Do you think the medium would fit me or you?

 

I guess it doesn't even matter anymore because I can't exchange anyways as they are all sold out...

 

But yea, the photos of the products are always so different in person it's a bit frustrating I feel you on that

Approx after how many wears does it start stretching? And does it stretch a lot?

wait so you got the SS henley then. My feedback is only regarding the LS henley. I don't know about fit, but based on pics I would agree that L would be good. The model's skinny arm barely fit that size M sleeve lol. I was referring to baggy as the long sleeve portion of the LS henley. haha.

Prob within the first few good wears. Not a lot but enough for you to consider getting the size that fits you snug from the get go. It will stretch in all of the key areas.

Agree on this! I'm 5'7 150lbs and small is tight off the bat stretches after a few wears to perfection. Medium fits good off the bat and still works after stretching but you definitely get that diaper bum look in the back

Does anyone have a pic with the henley on? Would like to know what Im in for

post #14699 of 25453

Taking into consideration of stretching after a few wears, what would you recommend for 5'11 170lbs (legs not too thick or thin). Thanks!

It's like the APC sizing thread reincarnated here.
