    The major difference here is the collar of the hood, the flash has a stand collar, the uniform LA does not

    Definitely. It changes how the hood falls for sure.

    No disrespect to you, but I don’t understand the Chelsea’s and a hoodie look, it always seems off to me. Chelsea’s in my opinion are far too formal for a hoodie as your sole outerwear. I think if you wanted to keep it casual something like a denim jacket would work better.

    I went TTS on Sahara denim. I’ve had a pretty wide range of Cast 2 denim, and Sahara doesn’t fit differently from most. I wouldn’t size up or down on those.

    I see what you’re saying, but at the same time, I think people are wearing Chelsea’s all sorts of way, and the “traditional” or “technical” way is not really important anymore.

    I guess but I have yet to see someone actually pull it off well. I think a cardigan, a denim jacket, etc work well as casual wear with them, but I just don’t see a hoodie working (at least not a zip up) IMO

    Anyone have any terry pieces in midnight? I’m thinking about grabbing something but never saw the color. I have dark navy and wondering how it compares. I don’t want something tooooo close. @srizvi722

    Looks like FWRD just got full size run on Rios in Black and Dune if anyone still looking, just copped the Black to see what all the hype is about. OG Flash Dual Zips available over there too

    Dark Navy is really dark to the point where I sometimes grab it thinking I'm picking up black. Midnight is more of an actual Navy. Closer to blue than black.

    Very different actually.
    Really old pic, my midnight stuff is in California and I’m in NY right now. But you can get an idea of midnight. Dark Navy is actually closer to black IMO
