    ^ You could look into some of the sweatshirts at BiG. They carry several, including SDA and Samurai, and I think the sizing is not as wonky as Buzz Rickson.

    Hmm, I'm deciding between that Urban Outfitters one, a used Michael J. Krell, and a used Rag & Bone right now. Decisions, decisions. What do you guys think would be good? I'm assuming that either R&B or MJK would be the best quality...

    FWIW, I don't mind stuff that's short in the body (I like tops that hit at mid-belt), as long as the arms are long enough.

    I don't eat Doritos. And I tend to dislike couches.

    Anyway, I'm trying to add some Ivy League/trad inspiration to my streetwear look, and I was thinking that tartan plaid buttondowns worn under a plain grey crewneck sweatshirt (in place of a fine-gague sweater) would sort of give off that very Ivy-esque vibe.

    Is there a reason you would rather have a sweatshirt than a sweater?

    Yeah, I guess this thread did end up being kind of funny. Anyway, to PG2G, I have quite a few sweaters, all of which I wear a lot, but the buttondown+sweatshirt combination is just very Ivy League.

    Did it have the clorox stains?

    Target had some with the V stitching, but no smalls, so I didn't try on one. I'm pretty sure it was merona (house line), which usually has well fitting things. Not sure what the fabric was either, but it felt nice.

    Ok, here's what annoys me.

    NiCo released a grey scoopneck sweater with a really soft wool/cash fabric and a great slim fit, really a rare find for a sweater. But then they proceeded to rip pre-fab tears into the thing and market it as "deconstructed." I mean, it's kind of cool, but they were so close to making this wonderful and uber-wearable piece. Ugh.
