    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm 5'9, 200 lbs and have 15-16 inches biceps, so in my world I'm not big, but the arms on most shirts are riiiiiight on the limit.

    I got a newsletter from Albam the other day saying "introducing the new even slimmer ..... shirt" and I'm first thought was who are these people, who can fit into these shirts, the ones I have are plenty slim.


    I'm seriously contemplating going bespoke, the next time one of the HK tailors are in town.

    I'm thinking about channeling my inner DB and replacing all shirts with polos with extra starch in the collar.

    If you wear a large don't you need to have all your shirts tailored when it comes to length at that height/weight? I feel like I have to at the same height and I'm only 160-165 lbs (about 15" biceps as well though).

    But then then question is will you get a real poncho, I mean a Mexican poncho or just a Sears poncho?

    Which brands do you buy? I feel like the sleeves are often too long for even a medium.

    Oh, that explains it. I wish I had monkey arms so Norse shirts would fit me, though. Instead I have quite short arms :/

    It's a joke and a subtle nod to the musician from whom I stole it… know who? :D

    You are pretty big. I mean, not huge, but for faashunz, pretty yoked. I have never measured, and it appears that I have 13.5-14.5 biceps, and I am both taller and lighter than you, and a pretty straight up size 40US/50EU these days. In EU sizing convention, I am an L, though a M in US sizing. Whether you like it or not, you are an XL,

    Is there a resident Lanvin dude over here? LanvisDB9?
    Or somebody with much experience with more recent stuff (like last 3 years)?

    This Ian the shopkeeper is the worst at communicating. Just doesn't respond to messages.

    Srsly? That's crazy and awesome at the same time! Sweet man.

    On another more personal note… I'll be back in Cincy for the holidays this weekend. Might check out that Mt. Lookout pizza joint you were talking about if I get the chance. :)



    Not that I know of, but what are you looking for? If it's sneaker related RFX is always the guy to start with.

    I "only" have a 40" chest, so I shouldn't be a XL.
