    I'm 6'4 160 - Should I do a XL or 2XL for a slightly loose fit in the Villain side zip?

    Thanks!

    On the subject of the Obsidians, how is the waist fitting for others? I'm a 31 and sized down to 30, which fits well everywhere, although the waist is looser than I'm used to on new denim. The top button is easy to close and there's some slack on the waist.

    6'4" 160 is slim. 5'10" 155 lbs is a medium. Not so sure what to advise but I definitely do not think you need an XXL at 6'4 160 lbs.

    Both Snap Shirts came in last night and I can say they are very well made and the quality is evident. Just a note to anyone considering the shirt, the sleeves seem to fit very tight particularly at the bicep. I don't have huge arms but they are not small either. I am hoping they will give some with wear because they are great shirts but are currently kind of restricting.

    Optima, I was going to order a L in the u neck as well, how does it look layered with the villain? Is it long enough? (And how tall are you?)

    I'm 6 foot. The length is great for layering, I haven't got to wear it with villain due to it still being way to hit in Texas. But the length is great definitely longer than standar T-shirts these days. Fabric is on point

    I'm 6'4 180 and a L fits slim/perfect like I wanted. You would be good with an XL if you want a bigger fit.


    picked up the blk Escobars in a L from Atrium today, these are awesome

    I had the same experience with the jeans, and if you read back a few pages others have said the same. I tried sizing down 2 and the waist was perfect but everything else was too tight.

    TL;DR Wear a belt.

    it sounds like you bought the wrong size

    a tagged size 30's waist measures 33 inches

    28 or 29 would have been better for you

    Well, the fit is just about perfect, unless they're going to stretch out in the waist. Anyone know? Maybe I could try a 29, but I'd be worried about thighs fitting right.

    29's thigh measures the same as 30's thigh according to the site

    so I decided to hot soak my obsidians before wearing them. it's interesting because the soaking has appeared to stretch out the waist measurement from 15.5 to 15.75ish-16. either that or I'm measuring against a flatter surface due to the hang dry

    Both my orders I received shipping info within 36 hours. Given you ordered on a friday and it's a holiday (for most) today, I wouldn't really expect anything until tomorrow.

    I placed a order on a Friday and received it the following Monday. From LA to VA. Super fast shipping bro.
