    What do you think of the 'seconds' stuff, notwithit? Does it feel to be anything better than AA, while putting aside the fact its 'geller', 'made in japan', etc?

    fit looks good. the blue color looks fun and good for vacation, the pool, beatin around casual, etc. I'd seen it online so glad to see it more naturally now..


    He and I have actually been exchanging PM's about this. I got one of the tees and love the fit and look of the shirt. I'm underwhelmed by the fabric, though. It feels a bit flimsy without having that unbelievable softness you might expect from pricier basics. Then again, I've set the bar high in that regard because the Odyn Vovk Cure tee remains one of the more luxurious pieces of clothing I've ever held. Now that's one of those items that you touch and you instantly know where that extra money went. I'm not confident the Seconds tee is going to withstand too many washes. YMMV, though.

    I'm keeping the shirt, but because I like the fit and didn't pay anywhere near retail for it. So Seconds seems like the sort of stuff you should grab only if you can pluck pieces from the sales rack.

    Thanks for the add'l info APK. Most of it is pretty picked over, but I was going to experiment and get the 'mint' colored tank or tee (which is a color I never thought I would try wearing, but I digress...). I'm going to have to go looking for one of those cure tees now [​IMG]

    i was going to say something about the glasses, but i wont [​IMG] i think a simple scrunching up of the tee would improve this fit. boots are dope, flowy cardigan is dope. im looking for some sunglasses too. you should get some illesteva's for that full on outta this world look!! Odyn Vovk tees are soft but i much prefer my silent tees. maybe bc ive got it in an xs and its not as flowy as the silent tees [​IMG] ...dunno. the fabric doesnt seem to be too flowy/drapey anyways

    Slack tide, what does slack tide mean?
    It's a period in tidal regions where it is perfectly between tides and there is no significant flow of water in or out. No real significance to me, just always liked the two words. (side note: most fishermen would know fishing a slack tide is often the worst time and least productive)..

    In a way, I wouldn't compare the two. The 2nds tanks that I picked up actually have construction details to them, like multiple layers, asymmetrical hems, &c., whereas AA tanks are...AA tanks, and just about as straightforward as you can get. The cotton is soft, but like APK said, it feels very flimsy where it's not double-layered.

    Here's the real catch: it's not double-layered in the backs of those tanks. I bought both the sky blue and the mint, and while the sky blue is dark enough that it's not translucent in the back, the mint seems really, really sheer. I'll try to throw it on and snap a pic later today, but I'm probably returning it.

    And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm headed to my brother's to brew a black IPA.
