    Can you still fit into the legs properly? I couldn't to save my life. It's like size 28 with 32 waist, great, that's me, except the whole 10.5 inch thigh thing that is still characteristic of a 28, not a 32. RRL is amazing denim but fuck have they fucked their shit up

    hmm. this may be a cause for concern. i will see how they fit. i may have to resell them here. 10.5 is too slim in the thigh .

    Just ordered a pair of Mezlan McVie's in dark brown alligator. They're being shipped from a California warehouse, so I'm hoping they may arrive today or tomorrow. Am in a high state of alertness and anticipation.

    How do those fit, specifically in the arms? I went to Brooks Brothers recently and asked for their slimmest fitting shirt, and it was surprisingly baggy when I tried it on. Lots of excess fabric on the sides and arms. That couldn't have been the black fleece, could it?

    Most likely mainline BB "Slim Fit", which isn't very slim by SF standards.

    There's a thread devoted to Black Fleece oxford shirts here.

    yeah i agree with them probably being slim fits. for reference i am a 16-34 and in "slim fit" and size 3 in black fleece and the black fleece is MUCH slimmer. very little excess fabric anywhere on the shirt.

    as for fit, these fit me very well, better than most of my shirts off the rack. i can see where these will be a bit short for taller guys.

    for what it's worth, i have broad shoulders and usually run into a problem where the shirt fits fine in the neck and chest/waist, but the shoulders are too snug. that problem is not present with black fleece shirts.

    Had no choice as this is a 'grail' watch for panerai collectors..

    If I didn't get it now,it would be a long time before anoher one surfaces as they only made 1000 J series.

    PAM 233J
    1950 case
    1st Panerai in-house movement
    GMT function
    Manual wind 8-10 power reserve

    * I guess I failed the July test BIG time..

    Thanks, it really caught my attention. I like in particular how it's been orientated so that Napes is more or less in the centre [​IMG]
