    How did the term hipster come into the discussio when we're talking about band of outsiders? The shirt looks way too tight, eason. It always looks way too try-hard when i see the muscle guys wearing overly tight tshirts/buttonups to show off. You can find button ups that make you looks slim/muscular with a bit of drape to it. PG2G's latest mmm shirt in waywt fit as well as a button up ever could IMO (i didn't realize it but that's a lot of acronyms last sentence).


    constant struggle- what size did you go with? It seems you'd probably get away with a medium but i can never tell people's sizes when they're shorter/taller than me.

    I don't know, "medium" sounds like a suspiciously hipster fit to me.

    Thanks chrono, I'm actually a huge fan of the fit of that shirt and was thinking about using its measurements for some custom orders. Have you checked MMM out? It feels like its long enough to tuck, but short enough to untuck, and not overly tight or loose. Next on my list to try out is Jil (if I can find it on sale or on yoxx, haha).

    I'd like to try out some MMM. What line is it as i know there are a bunch? The only thing is, i'm no where near a place i could try them on, and they don't pop up at a decent price here or supermarket. I tried a Jil shirt on over the winter break and it was ok, albeit a bit loose. It was a 38 and i think i could've done a 36, but it fit pretty nice. What's the pit to pit and size of the one you have?

    I think Eason was trying to tell us he's open for new experiences. I mean, cmon, he's using a straw.

    Affirmative, Ghostrider. edit: fyi since this thread is apparently about me now, I'm going to pimp my 101z's which I guess I will sell instead of let collect dust. http://styleforum.net/showthread.php...811#post981811

    Just get ready for the BB madhouse in the fall if you want cheap MMM. They almost always have the full size line on sale bc its so expensive at retail.
