    Fit is spot on. The rest of the clothes do throw it off a bit, rick doesn't usually look good with button ups

    Huh, these were white ones, and I'm pretty sure I could've told if they were MoP...I don't think there's any MoP out there that's a completely flat white color with no sheen or pearlescence to it.
    I gotta pick up some new running shoes. I'm way overdue.
    Nice shirt, and happy bday. Damn y'all's some youngsters on here.
    Agreed. Slimmer jeans, boots, and a tee and it'd look great. Also, ended up caving on two Modern Tailor shirts - blue/cream micro-floral and navy polka-dot seersucker, both short-sleeve - after obsessively measuring every decent-fitting BD I own.

    Best test is to take two of the buttons and tap them together. Plastic has a lower, quieter thud and MoP has a click sound (similar to teeth)

    I kind of want some nike frees now.

    also best way to test MOP is to bite the button. no joke.

    This is the best way to get bad looks/kicked out of a store. Tapping 2 buttons together gets the same effect minus the ick.

    Y'all made me curious enough that I checked (on my own shirts). Both methods work. I'd probably have to have a shirt that I knew had one or the other (preferably one that I knew had MoP) in order to verify. Or I could just carry a couple of MoP buttons with me to the store, I guess.

    Seems a little silly, though, and it was mostly a matter of academic curiosity with the BoO shirts.

    I read that by touching a button to your lip, you can tell if it's MOP if it's especially cold. All the shirts I have with MOP buttons are the same in this regard. Also may get you kicked out of a store

    Grabbed it from tonio:)fistbump:) since it was actually a bit too small for him. Apparently I'm a sz 3 or 4 in Schneider now...

    looks great snake, schneider sizing is super goofy; I'm usually a small or medium in knits and I have a schneider cardigan in a 6 and a pullover in a 7! lol

    Haha, yeah, definitely some ick factor there. All's fair in the fitting room, though. :smarmy:
