    I want to buy a plain, white, ribbed henley... I went shopping today, and couldn't find one for under $200. It just needs to be a plain one, nothing fancy. Any ideas?

    Go to a Meijer/Target/something?

    I hate the way henleys look on almost everyone. The implications that the whole henley deal combined with recent color palettes being used by various designers have for the return of the early '90s also bums me out.

    Make SURE you get a size up, no joke. They shrink like crazy, but they're great. In the store there's a tag on it that alerts you to the shrinkage, but I didn't see such a warning on the web site.

    I did order a size up; the website states in the FAQ to expect 5-7% shrinkage.

    I think all things American Apparel count as streetwear.

    I think that the problem is that there are still a lot of issues about what threads belong in streetwear vs. the main forum. Just trying to define boundaries.

    I'll chime in. A big problem lately, with the boom in membership over the last few months, has been the huge flux of new topics in the clothing forum. I think splitting the forum right down center between jeans/casual wear and business/formal wear is a good idea. I vehemently applaud LAG's platform thus far.
