    Thanks! I'm assuming the one you accidentally put in the dryer was the mercer tank?

    Wondering if the u neck would stick out on the updated crew?

    Yes the mercer tank shrunk, idk I personally like to layer with the tanks opposed to the u necks. I just think it looks better but thst is my opinion, I am not quite sure what the exact length is for the unecks and which is longer vs the mercer tanks

    Thx! Appreciate it!

    Length is about the same for me but thinking the back of the unecks may still stick out of the back of the villain crew since the scoop part seems to go all the way around. Will def have to do the mercer like yours since it can't be seen and def won't need readjusting when put on [​IMG]

    Do you suggest to size down in tank? Jow does it fit in chest area compared to u-neck tee?

    p.s. when can expect Flash dual zip to restock in grey or black?[​IMG]

    Mercer tanks are super long imo. I actually haven't really figured out how to wear mine (though it got a lot of use at burning man).

    Not sure if you were asking me lol - chest area is of course a bit roomier since its a tank but a lot definitely has to do with what fit you like, frame, and how things sit on the body. My villains and flash dual zip are all in large which isn't oversized for me but my tees and tanks are all size small esp since they are layering pieces for me so sizing down on those wasn't an option really.

    Hope that helped!

    I wasn't point you. I was asking in general. For example I wear villain in L and U-neck tee L, but I am not sure about the mercer tank if should I stay in L or get M. U-neck tee fits me perfect, not to lose not to tight, but I don't want extra loose fit tank.

    gotcha.. id size down one in your case because i believe the lengths are comparable and since there isn't any fabric tightening around the shoulder area, going down may work well.

    I was thinking the same, because I have a little space in chest area, but really a little in u-neck tee. But on the photos on the page where model is wearing u-neck tee and mercer tank both M, it looks like the tank is more loose fit. I am in doubt a little, because I won't be able to return it as I am located in Europe.

    Stay true to size. You will be fine. 1 size down will probably be smaller than you would like @sussi

    For me - I find tanks in general can be worn relatively smaller because theyre missing the entire upper body part if that's a concern but we are all basing it on our fits and what we like. To be safe you def can go with what @leclutchjames suggested.

    Otherwise, if the rest of your body is fine on the u neck and has relative space in the body, then I think going down won't be bad since your chest isn't exactly constricted on the mercer since its a tank.

    Flash Dual Fullzip will restock in both colors next week. I would not suggest to size down on the tank. I think the chest area would get pretty tight. Some of us here size up on it, I don't suggest that for everyone, but it is the only jersey shirt category I would suggest that on.

    I say that about the Mercer, because I don't mind a tshirt looking a bit tight in the chest area, but smaller in the arms, but wouldn't want that look on the tank. That's why some of us size up on it - you get the looser look without bigger armholes like you might get by sizing up on a tee. That being said, most people take the same size in the Mercer as everything else.
