    Hey rydenfan, when you say wash and dry to shrink a bit, do you mean a full wash on hot and dry on high heat? Or did you go with a less severe method? How much shrinkage do you think you got in the chest and shoulders? More than an inch?

    I did a cold wash and low to medium dry. I would guess slightly more than inch but can measure when I get home. I have one still unwashed and one washed so I should be able to get pretty accurate differences. Feel free to ping me if I forget ;)

    More than pleased I would say.


    Same here. Prolly could have worn it today actually. But I did not have a deserving supporting ensemble to wear it with as I rushed out to take carpool.

    Stephan Schneider is even cooler than I thought --

    I'm wearing my navy SS Gemini hooded sweater today. As I turn to hang it behind the door in my office this morning, I notice something very subtle.

    So cool.

    That's not the light or angle of the photo, either. Two different shades.

    yep. I have a shirt that looks robin eggs blue, but in direct sun light (only) has two subtle but absolutely noticeable wide green stripes down the front. It's amazing what he does.

    Just FYI....the pants that come with the 50R suit are tagged 52. They will be two sizes bigger than what you currently have. Needless to say, there will be a big difference.

    The blue plaid is size 48 but that would come with 46R suit? Holy macro!
