    The material used in the olive RC sweats are noticeably less soft than previous seasons. Anyone else noticed that?

    Is the stitching supposed to be so disconnected on the hoodies? Or did I get a flawed sweatshirt? :/[​IMG]

    Is it terry? Their tiger fleece is soft, their other sweats are not

    Looks like it was tugged. Do you have a huge head?

    I have a normal average sized head. But even if I had a huge head, why would it be so delicate?

    Delicate is probably the last word I'd use to describe RC stuff. It looks fine. If it really bothers you, run a thread through it.

    ha yeah man. I shopped the sales hard for black Friday and feel like I got all the rejects. A pair of chup socks had a hole brand new. The Schneider with the ripped snag. A pair of shockoe atelier cords that had a belt loop not attached. A pair of Chromexcel Vibergs from Notre that were scuffed to shit when I got them. A Nanamica cruiser from bodega shop that had a red stain the size of a quarter on the lining. And now this. Seriously. Threads game giveth. And the threads game taketh away. I mean the whole point of spending the extra money was to avoid this stuff

    I bought the midweight, heavy weight and tiger fleece sweatpants on Black Friday sales. Have to say all are pretty underwhelming. The heavyweight are not remotely soft and I also thought they'd be heavier. The fleece are pretty decent, but for whatever reason they are cut 1.5 inches shorter than the rest. I like the fit and comfort of the midweight, but after one wash the tag with the logo is already fraying. Wouldn't buy any of this stuff unless it was at least 50% off. Have found W+H to generally hold up better.

    I been telling y'all heavyweights are garbage. Washed mine again in cold, no dryer and it feels like a brillo pad.

    Heavyweight sucks. Mid is great and the light is super soft. Tiger's heavy and soft but ugly.

    They fit slim in the chest. Size up if you're looking for a more relaxed fit

    The size chart is accurate on their site. I have that exact tee and the quality of the cotton is why they can charge so much. Only complaints I had would be the shirts are jersey cotton which is soft but because it is very think the neck stretches out a good bit after a couple wears and the white on a sunny day will be showing some nipple shadows lol. If they made a Tee with a thicker thread count or a reinforced neck I would only every color. But because of the stretch and the way the shirt will wrinkle after washing or when your sitting down I only have the one.
