    Also, I know these are made in America, but what does that really mean? Couldn't they be hiring unskilled Mexican's (not that they are) to do the sewing / construction? I guess this question goes for all made in America clothing.

    It doesn't mean much other than that they've made a commitment to manufacturing in America -- which should be commended but, really doesn't speak to the quality of the garment. I was just joking around because whenever there's a "debate" on here about this brand, rather than supporters just saying "I like their style and fit, I don't really care what it costs" people defend the brand like they work there for being "Made In the USA" as if it was made in Ethiopia and still fit and was marketed the same, they wouldn't still hand over their cash for it.

    ...and I like BoO. I have many of their shirts and have paid retail every time.

    lol, I wasn't trying to hate on BoO (I actually don't understand all the hate). I guess I should have included the second question in another thread because it really wasn't specific to BoO at all and now noone is going to answer what I really wanted to know.

    Kaiser- After looking at your profile and seeing your jacket size is 40, i'll let you in on a secret. BoO is nice stuff. I'd keep an eye out for it around sales time. If you somehow drop to a size small-real slim medium, BoO becomes shitty again

    again Uniqlo XS is a good alternative, I have about 4 XS Uniqlo button downs.

    Although, I am ready to replace them with 1 or 2 nice Boo shirts; I'd much rather have 1 or 2 shirts that I completely adore than 4 or so mediocre shirts.

    How so? I'm a small-real slim medium and BoO works out pretty well.

    Chill out guys, chrono is just joking that if you were the same size as him, he wouldn't want you buying BoO on sale because then there would be any left for him.

    Small or Medium depending on how close you want to cut things. I have a 38" chest and I'm medium.

    ...

    You're lucky I'll be out of town on the 16th... even though you're my brother, I'd have no qualms about stepping on your fingers to get to the Smalls.

    If I'm a size M in J Crew, would I bet a L or XL is BoO?

    Random: So on Band's website they have all the polaroids. One of them is of Christain Bale wearing a BoO shirt. What the hell size does he wear? I mean, I have to wear an XXL and I'm not THAT big. This dude is effing Batman. I'm surprised he was even able to button it up.

    Unless the picture was taken while he was filming The Machinist. *shudder*

    I have a 39.5&quot; chest, would I be a BoO large? J Crew mediums are too big (wide in the body) for my taste and I prefer shirts a little slimmer than H&amp;M mediums in slim fit.
