I have the oatmeal hoodie and it's the single best piece of loopwheeled clothing I ever laid my hands on. Someday I plan on getting the crew neck in indigo and grey, as well as a black hoodie.

Do note that it shrank a bunch length wise. Width wise not as much.

This is the latest and earliest picture of it that I have. Size L(40). I tend to question the width measurements because this is like 54 cm P2P which is bigger than the listed L (40) size, after shrinkage :

Really wanted to try and get their tees in Tokyo but couldn’t find a stockist. Heard only good things about the tees and hoodies despite running very small.

Honnestly, I don't think they run as small as they're listed to.

What's your take on this @upsett1_spaghett1 ?

Edit: @Mghart I measured my L(40) sweatshirt
Pit to pit : 22 inches
Front length : 21.5
Back length : 23.75
Sleeves, shirt style from middle of back : 33.5

I would say that they run a size small. I’d go up one size from your usual “US size” for intended fit, normal size for a tighter fit

Ah thanks for posting those. I might be able to pull off an XL (42) then. Length is the thing that always gets me since I have a longer torso.. but for the price in Yen its worth a shot. I ended up getting an RMC loopwheel hoody in Tokyo, as my previous ones were non-loopwheel and the heft and hand are night and day.

I though you liked high rise pants and short jackets.
Anyway I’m likely getting a black hoodie next.

Oh I do, but sometimes garments like sweat/hoodies or knits are still too short for me despite high rise trousers. Case in point, I have a few 30's Red Cross vests that I size up in mostly for the added length cause they run super short.

What's your ideal back length?

What do you think of the TRMC? It's the most luxe sweatshirt I've owned. I find their hoodie to be better than the crew sweatshirt for whatever reason

I would agree with @peachfuzzmcgee 23.5" to 25 or so is ideal. Depends on the fabric and what the garment is though. Tees need to big a little longer to tuck in however as I never really wear even a tee untucked.

This new loopwheel hoodie I got from RMC is really quite nice. I did find the crew version forwhatever reason feels thinner and maybe not as plush? I have a zip crew in loopwheel fabric I got in Tokyo in 2019 that I like a lot too. I had the Ball Park crew sweat that wasn't loopwheeled and actually didn't care for the fabric as much. Felt rough in comparison. I have two other Joe McCoy hoodies that aren't loopwheeled that are nice, but the difference in fabric quality is definitely noticeable. Not as expensive though and a good basic hoodie. I'm just a sucker for these things and I'll make an excuse to buy them though as they're just nice to have around for a simple layer.

Man, these things always sound cool in theory but I feel like many times you get stuck with a bunch of crap you can't use.

I'm a tall boy and for me 23.5 to 25.5 is my ideal for a lot of jacket types

23.5" to 25 or so is ideal. Depends on the fabric and what the garment is though. Tees need to big a little longer to tuck in however as I never really wear even a tee untucked.

Sorry if I didn't make myself clear enough but we were in the middle of discussing sweatshirts.

So MG, what's your ideal back length for a sweatshirt?

Ah sorry. For sweatshirts the shortest I can do is 24”/61cm counting the rib at the hem. The recent crew I got from timeworn is that length and is a good balance. A little longer doesn’t hurt, maybe .5-1” is still good. I tend to prefer sweatshirts looser overall though too
