    Fit is spot on. The rest of the clothes do throw it off a bit, rick doesn't usually look good with button ups

    Huh, these were white ones, and I'm pretty sure I could've told if they were MoP...I don't think there's any MoP out there that's a completely flat white color with no sheen or pearlescence to it.
    I gotta pick up some new running shoes. I'm way overdue.
    Nice shirt, and happy bday. Damn y'all's some youngsters on here.
    Agreed. Slimmer jeans, boots, and a tee and it'd look great. Also, ended up caving on two Modern Tailor shirts - blue/cream micro-floral and navy polka-dot seersucker, both short-sleeve - after obsessively measuring every decent-fitting BD I own.

    Best test is to take two of the buttons and tap them together. Plastic has a lower, quieter thud and MoP has a click sound (similar to teeth)

    I kind of want some nike frees now.

    also best way to test MOP is to bite the button. no joke.

    This is the best way to get bad looks/kicked out of a store. Tapping 2 buttons together gets the same effect minus the ick.

    Y'all made me curious enough that I checked (on my own shirts). Both methods work. I'd probably have to have a shirt that I knew had one or the other (preferably one that I knew had MoP) in order to verify. Or I could just carry a couple of MoP buttons with me to the store, I guess.

    Seems a little silly, though, and it was mostly a matter of academic curiosity with the BoO shirts.

    I read that by touching a button to your lip, you can tell if it's MOP if it's especially cold. All the shirts I have with MOP buttons are the same in this regard. Also may get you kicked out of a store

    Grabbed it from tonio:)fistbump:) since it was actually a bit too small for him. Apparently I'm a sz 3 or 4 in Schneider now...

    looks great snake, schneider sizing is super goofy; I'm usually a small or medium in knits and I have a schneider cardigan in a 6 and a pullover in a 7! lol

    Haha, yeah, definitely some ick factor there. All's fair in the fitting room, though. :smarmy:

    I definitely eyed that up in tonio's Schneider thread. Nice grab. Could look dope with a black suit, kinda like this:

    Not a major purchase, but picked up some Mosley Tribes Borough sunglasses. Have trouble getting plastic sunglasses that fit my face.

    That jacket is nice. Really didn't like the fit on the Oki-ni model, but in that pic, it looks great (maybe its the play of light and shadow in the pic). Got something recently from Oki-ni as well (also Silent by Damir Doma) and they marked it down ridiculously. Hopefully the sign of a new relationship and not a glitch in the Matrix.
