    fedora and flat cap are the only ones I can think of. I am not a hat person. you be better off asking MC. Hats aren't the easiest accessories to pull off IMO

    Hey Prada, thanks a lot. I have one more question, are all American Apparel shirts on the longish side? Are Alternative Apparel shirts cut shorter?

    Are there any decent-fitting T-shirts for athletic builds on Amazon.com?
    I'm about your height (5'9) and have had a lot of luck with these types of Perry Ellis shirts. They accentuate the shoulders and look slim in the waist without strangling you or exacerbating whatever tiny-size love handles you might have down there. (I assume by 'athletic', you mean mesomorphic and somewhat muscular, not heroin-thin -- in which case those ultra-fitted tees might be for you. Damnit.). Anywho, the crewneck varieties^^ seem to be perpetually on sale for $10-$20 at Dillards. Compared with similar t-shirts, the mediums are very short on me (just past the waist), making them great undershirts. Amazon carries similar items from time to time.

    I'm 5'8" tall and a 37" chest. I want to buy a QUALITY Loopwheel Sweatshirt. I can't decide between a Buzz Rickson (medium) or a STUDIO D ARTISAN in a size M. Any comments / advice would be much appreciated.

    For sweatshirts, I've only had Studio D'Artisan between these two brands, but I can say that the quality is great for that one. It's a relatively heavy sweatshirt, and it fits about a size small (I wear a size L in most American brand sweatshirts and had to go up to an XL on this one).

    The material on the blue shirt looks like it was made in the 50's

    Thanks very much. I'm usually a size S, so I was going to size up. The STUDIO D ARTISAN is more expensive than the Buzz.

    I have a question regarding proxying.

    There is a certain jacket (belstaff trialmaster) I want that is available overseas. (ie. the UK).
    I was wondering would it be cheaper (or overall better) to purchase online from a retailer directly or getting someone to proxy to the US.

    Don't like the nipple gating part. The main reason that I like the RO tees besides it's length/raw hem, is its material. Mine are either rayon/silk or cotton/silk, so comfortable. At the same time, 100 for a tee is [​IMG]
    where the fugg are you getting them for $100? I was happy paying $200 loooool
