    Much as I dislike to give Urban Outfitters my money, I picked up a pretty nice grey sweatshirt the other day. Slimfitting, has the triangle stitching and the fabric-backing is all loops, rather than fleece (like a hanes would have). Certainly not as nice as something Japanese, but it's $38. Link Here

    Armani Exchange makes one, dark gray with upside down triangle at neck, and a slight pattern in the fabric. Fits slim also, I got one on sale for $30.

    the buzz rickson ones are really short and if you size one up everything else fits really big. i liked the eternal sweatshirts at big and all the nom de guerre and some of the w&h knitwear for fw08 are really great. but of course perfection comes at a price.

    I've been looking for the same thing. I'd pay for the Buzz Rickson if I had seen a single fit picture that didn't look off. There are some Rakuten shops (Take Off for one) that carries some cool sweat shirts for around $100. I think I'm going to order one of those Urban outfitter ones though.

    ^ 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.

    this item, I assume would be the perfect thing to wear while watching the perfect movie on your couch and eating the perfect bag of doritos?

    While making the perfect reply to make yourself sound like a perfect douche bag.

    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?
