    Tighter than their tshirts. I have a size small and it definitely clings too hard to wear normally. I sized it like that on purpose though so i could layer easier. When it's really cold i'll wear it under sweaters or something
    Good, I'll definitely be wearing it as a thermal layer. How the length and the shrinkage in wash/dry factor?

    I use USPS just because the flat rate makes things so much easier (and cheaper?) although I love companies that ship using fedex.... got a snowboard delivered in 3 days

    I don't have any complaints. Considering all the different carriers, I've probably gotten over 100 packages this year without a single one lost. It's pretty amazing to me.

    my gripe for the day: ebay sellers who won't give you any measurements when you request them.

    Usually, Priority has been very good to me, but I'm pissed lately because (1) an important package is almost two weeks late, and (2) there is no way to reasonably ship something out of the US with insurance withough paying ridiculous prices. Seriously, First Class with insurance to Vancouver costs as much as 2-day EMS from Japan to the US.

    ^ Agree that international shipping with any kind of tracking or insurance is ridiculously expensive, but I think that's the case no matter what service you use (although I'd love to be proven wrong).

    USPS Priority is great within the continental US, though; much prefer it over UPS or FedEx.

    ^^ I'm pretty sure EU to US is way cheaper than US to EU too.

    You are right, aqhong, about all services being pricey.

    Paul- a guy shipped me a heavy sweater with tracking from the UK for less than I can ship a <1lb shirt to Vancouver.

    Regardless of any faults of USPS, they are still loads better than UPS, Fedex, or DHL. Quality will probably be slipping as they just fired 40,000 employees country wide, and they are still in the red for a few billion dollars. Will probably get more expensive but the quality of service will probably drop, you cannot lose that many people and not have consequences. [​IMG]

    Still, fuck UPS and their ass-raping brokerage fees. UPS charged me $200 for ordering two cotton Robert Geller shirts from Canada.

    Disappointed no one who went to the W+H sample sale grabbed the grey jeans in my size.
