    Baracuta G10 slimfit nylon jacket. Supposed to run small, hopefully it fits

    Did I already ask you how this looked and felt in person? I'm curious to see how light it is.

    Damn. I was really hoping that ervell red/brown air jacket or the red harrington in small would last till 60off.

    What size are you guys getting in that blue schneider shirt? I don't know how to read the number sizing and i was gonna grab the tank top in size 5 whatever that means.

    Also, does anyone know what the raf by raf cardigans are made out of? For $150 at 60% off it better be something decent. I like the look of them and kinda want to pair the grey one with the blue raf polo. If someone knew the sizing on raf by raf tops it'd help. I have a l/s tshirt from fall that in medium fits kinda short and box but with really slim arms. Not sure if i should get a small or medium in the polo or cardi.

    I asked about sizing at SW and was told I'd be either a 4 or 5. I tries the 5 and it was a nice fit, I could probably fit into a 4 if I was looking for something slimmer. I imagine that would make you a 3 or 4?

    A 7 is the equivalent to a XL in BoO for me. I shrunk my first SS piece a wee bit as well. I'd say size accordingly. I think Alberto is a 5 in SS, M in BoO which stays inline with that theory. He'd have to confirm though.

    For reference, this is a 5. It fits me like a BoO M (box pleat) so you'd probably be 4/5 no problem: [​IMG]

    Probably to Jet or Socal,

    How do Raf Simons shoes fit? I'm usually a 41 but maybe they go big...

    The sneakers I bought are a 45 in both RS and RRS. The sandals are a 44. I'd say it s true to size.

    Thanks guys. They're sold out of almost everything schneider but i'll keep it in mind for future reference since i like a fair amount of his pieces. I'll probably just size up on the tank top. Kunk and i can look really cool at a future meet in our tanks showing off the guns.

    If people start tipping better, i want to go for a few days in mid august. I'm gonna quit driving and move back to gville and take 2weeks off before grad school (aug 25th). Airline tickets are ridiculous right now. I'm going to try and convince my mom to go up there with my younger sister since they both want to go and try to score a free airline ticket along the way. I probably will spend all my money on food though, not clothes. Food is delicious.

    I personally love the food here in NY, so it would be money well spent.

    Nice, Bobo. I'm wanting one, but in raw denim if I can get it. Might pick up one from Chuck's Vintage. RRL has made several through the past few years that are on ebay but they are predistressed which I'd rather avoid. I'm pretty fascinated with all things workwear these days, though.

    check ebay for vintage ones [​IMG] Theres a lot, and often cheap. Probably more available in larger sizes though.

    I got two in blue raw denim (blue bell and montgomery ward, both vintage), one in black raw denim (A.P.C), one broken in (big ben), one white/blue stripe from levis, and now this one in duck. I mainly got the carhartt one to have a jacket I can wear denim shirts with and not look like a denim freak [​IMG]

    I might get a chore coat this fall in duck or hickory stripe from Pointer--inspired by family man, a continuous lean, and junya. Anyone have advice on sizing?
