    @conqueror RC stretches. Calf area is historically a difficult place to get to stretch... but you have hope.

    some of this is terrible advice - a size L for someone at 5'8? i can't fathom any dude at 5'8 needing a L in anything unless they are significantly overweight. at 6'1 i wear a M in all RC tops and find the hoodies (zip up especially) too long if anything.

    +1. I'm 6'1 160 and M in bottoms and tops. I only size up to L in short sleeve tees since I like them bigger, M long sleeve tees are fine in cotton and power dry.

    Bud look at the chest measurements, a medium would barely fit a 43" chest

    Am I going to get much shrinkage on the t-shirts if I throw them in the dryer after washing? Can't really decide on a M or L, but the t's are really nice. Does RC release new colors or variations on the t-shirts for different seasons?

    I love their tees. Core stays year round and they try new stuff every season, always simple. I upsize M to L in their tees since I like those baggy, but I think you'd be safe TTS if you like that size already. In my experience my M tees and crewneck sweatshirts have fit more or less the same after the dryer. I would size up if you get any of their tech fabrics, those give very little.

    RC generally fits slim-ish so I size up on my tees just be safe. The overlock seems can be a little uncomfortable if the shirt is too tight. They do a seasonal colour for the core products every season. Last year was the BLOOD colour

    Thanks. Both sizes seem to fit slim in the chest, but the L was much looser in the waist. I'm going to stick with a M since they don't seem to shrink much and size up to an L if needed in the future.

    I machine wash cold and hang dry and have yet to see any shrinkage on my sweatshirts. Sizing up for tees seems sensible. RC is hands down my favorite athletic brand.....so warm.

    You obviously don't compete in strength sports.

    Everyone who has one here at the shop machine washes and dries - I do the "warm" setting on the local laundromat for 30+ minutes and have yet to see any shrink in either of my midweight sweatshirts. they hold shape very well.

    tees definitely seem to fit snug in the shoulder / body, though I havent seen much of shrink from those either.

    (fwiw, we have some summer seasonal RC on sale, and just recently received a bunch of core product as a restock. check it out here)

    Wish I knew about your sale earlier. I bought the washed indigo crewneck from a different retailer before I saw your sale

    Bummer! Sorry you missed us. I try to keep things vocal when we go on sale across all channels, but I'm only getting to pushing sale now. better luck in the fall! I think we might start seeing new arrivals from CYC in the next few weeks.
