    I thought they started getting more strict with those. My friend was asked for a transcript or class schedule once because we always carried those around when we were students, right?

    Yeah the last time I bought something there the SA gave me a look when I showed my student card. She asked if I'm still in school and I said yes (which I am). She then asked for an email, I gave the school one because I wasn't sure if she was trying to 'book' me.

    Lol. Yea I've had them ask me about it too before. Even though I was able to scratch off the date off the back, I don't use it anymore. At 29, I look too old to pass for a college student now.

    Is it me or did their sizes get bigger? A small would usually fit me really good but now I find myself trying on XS in CM.

    I would be very surprised if company reps DIDNT read threads like this one. Everything about the new Club look is so SF approved it's ridiculous. The collab brands, cuts, combos, etc. plus weird things like them suddenly asking for extra ID... I have strong suspicions their new man (continuous lean?) is a SF poster.

    Last time I was there the shirts still seemed to be cut too small for me. I have a 40" chest and normally wear medium. Like the sides on the shirt are cut so that the front and back are longer than the side seam. The side seam was so short it would show part of my torso if I wear lower rise jeans.

    It was cut as slim as the madras from the summer.

    nah... maybe you look too old for the picture on that particular ID... but you're never too old to pass for a student. When I was in law school there was a guy in his mid 50s in the class behind me....

    It's the opposite for me. I am finding the stuff to be cut too small. Perhaps its because I'm going towards the men's clothing school of thought.


    Thats funny lol...could be true.

    Yea when I was still using it, I told them I was in grad school when I was asked a couple times. The pic on my ID was from when I was 20 or 21. I think I started showing my age more in the last year or two. Now people think I'm around 27. Being asian ftw.

    They need to fix their fit. I feel if you're not Asian most stuff here wont fit you well.

    lol wut? Please explain. They've actually fixed their fit in the last couple years so that it fits well instead of being made for fat americans (like most "mall" brands)

    Not asian, but I agree, at least when it comes to their pants. I've never had any luck with their trousers; theyre either too tight in the waist or too loose through the seat/groin/thigh area.

    I'm also not crazy about the dwindling number of "classic fit" shirts.

    Depends what you mean by "fixed". Are you 6'0 or over? The sleeves are too short. They might have the fit right when it comes to weight but not for height.
