    I was a size 4 (XL) last year and am a size 5 (XXL) in BoO this year. I am almost positive that they are shrinking their sizes!

    Is this a new phenomenon, or am I imagining things? Why don't they let their customers know they are doing this (especially the online ones who order based on their previous experiences with sizes).

    yea i'm pretty sure they've shrunk in size. i think the p2p on their mediums are like 18.5" now, which is ridiculous.

    Not really, if he still fits into his old BoO XL's, then he's an L in pretty much every other brand. Unless this topic is [​IMG] Also, I concur with the guy who measured mediums as 18.5" p2p. I measured 19", but am not surprised to see someone else measure a 18.5" medium.

    Good.

    Seriously, I buy BOO b/c I like the super-shrunken look, and it's refreshing when a brand stays true to that aesthetic rather than inevitably catering to the median American fat male

    Posted in the other thread, but yes it's shrinking. I had a medium shirt with an 18" pit to pit from last season.

    Shit, I'm pretty small, but I still need at min a 19.5 p-p, so if I wore Band today I guess I'd need at least a large.

    The sizing is sometimes inconsistent between different styles and also the same shirts. ss09 I had to buy the same shirt twice in the same size, the pit to pit was almost an inch larger for the second one.

    The ones I bought last season (silver birch overdye) fits larger than my BoO from older seasons. It even fits different from my other overdyes. But these have painted metal buttons (fucking stupid idea), so it may be a different type of overdye?

    BoO XL older season is starting to get really tight on me and I'm under 10% bf year round. Just because you have a bigger chest doesn't make you a slob dumbass.

    Haha crap, I was going to ask if there were a standard set of measurements for each size that we could post in this thread for reference but forget that... Are there different fits for BoO or is it all slim? Is there much of a taper good for those with wide shoulders and narrow waists?
