    How can you make it fit if it's tight at the shoulders/chest and loose around the gut? Or vice versa (usually my case)?

    You pick the right shoulder and chest fit, and get the waist and skirt altered (taken in) to fit. Pretty standard tailoring procedure. Don't pick a size that fits closer around the waist but is therefore too tight at the shoulders - that's unalterable

    If you don't have the body type for RLBL, I really don't see the point in buying it. RLBL is hyped because it fits amazing on slim guys, also why is this in RP?

    My point is don't believe the hype - you can get a lot of the RLBL aesthetic (if that's what you like, I don't like it anymore) even if you it doesn't fit perfectly off-the-rack - this is what tailors are for.

    I don't know why it's in RP.

    kent medium would have been a really bad idea - isaora fits smallll, and you are a big dude

    bows have you tried nonnative t-shirts? they have large-ish necks and fit relatively loosely, i thikn they would suit you. you should checkemout. the non-graphic tees, i mean

    I would start cursing right now if it weren´t for a couple of things: First, I saw the price, did the math and the difference is of 30 dollars more or less. Second, it´s become very difficult to buy dollars in my country in the past few weeks, so If I had ordered the pair from forward, I might not have been able to actually get them, ´cause they charge in dollars, and the bank coul put a hold on it for that. No problems at luisa because they charge in Euros for my country. [​IMG]
