Most said tts but I size-down.

 

I remembered someone said in the SS15 or AW15 thread that sizing down was fine but the sleeves maybe be short. For me, the sleeves are always on the long side, hence I took a chance after looking at a few measurements. I'm happy with the fit. I can still fit a shirt comfortably under the BDU.

 

It depends on your body shape & how you fit in your usual EG size ie. whether you fit small, comfortably or borderly tight in your EG size.

Yeah seems as if you can go either TTS or one size down on the BDU. I am not even yet sold on the piece though.

Not specifically a SS16 question, but how do the Ripstop Fatigues and FW15 Olive Outback Canvas Fatigues compare? How similar do they look in person?

Does anyone have this season's banded collar chambray shirt? I noticed some odd pulling (I think) below the right shoulder, and several model photos appear to show it as well:

Oddly enough, it's only visible when the top button is unbuttoned and goes away if buttoned. The shirt is fairly roomy too, so I don't think it's from being too tight. Is it just cut weird?

I tried it on and have a guess--the chambray was extremely stiff on it--an interesting crinkly texture. Probably would go away once washed and relaxed.

Im pretty sure its just the stiff texture of the shirt. Once its been worn in and washed it will go away.

I regret not copping one. The chambray is some of the best I've seen.

I bought the Banded Collar Shirt (size small) and have worn/washed a few times. Chambray not quite softened up yet and there's no pull on the shoulder as shown either.

You will note the left chest pocket is actually a two-in-one!

Did the chambray shrink at all for you? I haven't washed mine yet, but I typically wash things cold and hang dry.

Minimal if any shrinkage. The shirt is a bit tight around the base of my neck with top button done up so i generally wear top button undone. Bit more relaxed feel/look.

Chambray will stretch a bit over time with wear. So i look forward to how this will look/feel in a few years.

I always wash cold (unless for emergency stain removal soaking then warm soak first) and hang dry only. Never in warm/hot water to avoid fading. This applies to all items except wool/cashmere which then undergoes professional dry cleaning.

Anyone in NYC willing to proxy the new In Print Vol. 4?

I dont need my gf, ill just think about that before i get ready to sleep to help my needs, shit im not gonna bother about cleaning up afterwards, ill just let it dry in while i fall asleep in my mess all peaceful and reminiscent of early teens. Bliss.

Anyway, ye, its great. Doesnt seem to be that many who had eyes for it here though judging by the thread?

Has anyone in the US ordered from TBB this season? If so, were you charged any additional customs fees?
