    Nice bro, mind snapping a pic since we're the same size? I was thinking of getting the olive or the navy.

    You think sizing down would be a good idea on the boucle crew ?

    If all depends on your body and what your looking for tbh. I think just about everyone here can fit a small as these are pretty wide. Obviously on a bigger person it won't look oversized.

    I think it's not a bad idea to size down if you are top heavy and don't really want that hanging / poncho look. If you are fairly tall and lean from chest to torso, then the oversized looks nice true to size. These will hang when going true to size. How the hang looks is all body dependent.

    @Jbidwal
    Quick question bro. What size crop tee did u get and also what color? Im on the fence about them seeing as i live in the sunshine state. Also is it really heavy like terry or an extra thick gas station tee(just sayin it looks like that to me hahahah) We might get 10 really good days of fall and less than 3 months of winter the crop tee might be a good buy..cold in the morning and night but bright and warm during the day.im not complaining tho love fla..let me know when u get a minute

    ^^^ Crop tee isn't heavy/thick at all. You'd be fine wearing it in hot weather. The thickness is like those 5 for $20 aaa shirts--not comparing the two though.

    sorry but the size of that sweater along with how tight your pants are, for your body type, looks awful to me..

    but as long as you are happy

    Yea I'm sending it back. It's way too baggy. I think you need wide shoulders for it to work. I think they will hang on most people unless you size down.

    I layered it with a full sleeve mercer and it fits much better. I guess the mercer helps fill in the empty voids. Still ordered a small to see what works best. All in all I suggest you size down unless you got wide shoulders that will help carry the extra fabric

    Bought one just the other day and noticed most sizes were OOS after purchasing. Machus has them in stock, though, if you're on the hunt. I know Roden Gray will have them soon, as well. Hopefully that helps.

    Glad I decided to size down on the Boucle since exchanges aren't feasible for me. Had a feeling my usual size would be too big and I wanted a fit similar to that of the model.

    ^^^ Sits on your body much better there and fits a lot better than the initial pics. I'd still be inclined to size down as long as you're still able to achieve your intended look.

    I'm surprised the model can fit a medium but it seems like he's wearing a preproduction version anyway. The medium is 24 inches wide which is like an xl. I get its oversized but for me a normal loose tee is about 20 inches. Ordered the small grey to see how it fits. I really like the black now though so hopefully the grey looks just as good. If not, I might have a tailor bring it in a bit. I don't want the balloon look.
