    I thin the shirt will have a more slimmer fit all around if the center back pleat continued all the way down and not just on the top because even though it tapers by an inch from the chest to the torso, it does somewhat flair on the side.

    Not bad though, wore it yesterday.

    I don't like the back pleat. A shirt that fits well should not need a back pleat.

    It is BB so it is the best I could hope for for what I paid. [​IMG]

    I hear ya, I have a few work beater BB's myself. Hard to resist when they are almost free on sale, even if the fit is not perfect.

    I'm OK with the small pleats on the sides just below the shoulder, but in reality just prefer darts. All my RLBL shirts have the small pleats, which I'd not choose, but have come to just live with.

    great fit but you look like a fucking clown rocking that kit w/ red sneakers. the jacket and pants are both nice, now throw on some proper round toes and you're money.

    The new photos look better. Has it been washed yet?

    The shirt actually hasn;t been washed. That was the first time I wore them.

    I was actually just trying on the sneakers in that pic, this is the shoe I originally wore with it.

    Can we get some more shots of the shirt fit. The difference in the those two pictures is hard to believe.

    I don't know if I've ever said this before, but that fit looks much better with the sneakers.

    Yeha, I didn't think it was too bad with the red sneakers but I liked it with the boots although I think a brown one would have been much better with the blue pants. I will definitely consider it with the red shoe for the future though.

    It seem to come and go season by season. I'd check again during the Fall season.

    Can we get some more shots of the shirt fit. The difference in the those two pictures is hard to believe.

    Sorry, that is all the pics I have at the moment. I don't thinkt he fit is much more different than the first ones. It may just be the way I was standing in the first pics, you can see by the awkward robot pose. Still a bit roomy in the back though, like in the first pic.
