the 103s are awesome, but they might be too big!

I have the normal 103s in size 31 and they fit a little snug to begin with. I took a chance on getting the 32s and hoping to shrink them down, since the 103xx are sold out everywhere! But I measured them today and the waist came out to 34"...It kills me but I may have to put these on the market. I don't think they're going to shrink enough and I don't want to take the chance.

Those 103xx look great; a pity if they don't shrink enough! But I agree, you should try shrinking them.

I really like the cryptic message of the first tee shirt.

Maybe if I use boiling hot water they'll shrink more than just regular hot water from the washer? I'll have to think about it.

they don't have much left. 32 was the smallest size they had. This may be the last place that had them
