    no I'm just in nj. I mean I'm sure they've went over the logistics of it. It's just that ups takes a week and usps is typically 2 days. I'm sure the company has thought more into it than me I was just curious. Ups always seems to be the most expensive, slowest shipping.

    USPS is good for personnel shipping, awful for businesses. UPS and FedEx offer better rates for business and provide better materials. I'm used to the ground shipping 4-5 business days from east coast stores to Texas.

    Are the jeans the model wearing in the gq ss15 preview a new jean coming out that season or the obsidian cast?

    The explanation is literally 3 posts above JFC. If you bothered to look back slightly a few more posts you'll also see that USPS loses a lot more packages. IIRC it's more than double the percentage of other carriers.

    Yup, you can even search john Elliott's post and it breaks it all down why they don't use them anymore.

    Waiting an extra day or 2 really shouldn't be a problem honestly lol. As long as you get it

    USPS, when it works, is great, and their Priority Mail service is fast. For all the good feedback we received with this shipping service, we dealt with a lot of missing packages, and USPS is much harder than UPS or Fedex to file claims with and receive customer service follow through. It is for these reasons we had to switch.

    Just got the curve u-neck in olive. It's definitely more green in person than it appears on the web site, where it appears to have a lot of grey in it. It's a nice color, just a little different than it appears online (at least on my monitor).

    As far as fit is concerned, the length and width of the body are perfect, and the neck opening is on point. I wouldn't say no to slightly broader shoulders or slightly longer, slimmer sleeves, but overall I'd say it's solid.

    The fabric, as expected, is ungodly soft.

    The White Villain Crew was a one-off for Atrium and is not currently in production.

    No plans on putting it into production? Or maybe a sand/dune color? Or a charcoal or all black color?

    that's awesome, I bought mine a few days ago and made a post asking that question. Online it looks like olive green with a little bit of a blueish hue to it. But I'm hoping it's more of like a true olive army green. Good to kno
