    Thought I shouldn't go all black on my birthday.

    I didn't realize that Parlay was their house brand, but that makes sense. I have a beanie and a tank from them, really nice fabric on both. Tank's a little snug for anything other than layering, so sizing up may be in order if you want a regular fit.



    Many happy returns.

    @notwithit He's pretty good about listing the model stats and what size he's wearing. I write and ask too if I think I might be in between sizing. If you're a 48 sometimes he will sell the samples which are cut to fit him as special deals.

    Awesome. And yes, I'm most certainly a 48.

    I really like the beanie; it's thin, super-soft, stretchy, and elongated. My GF says I look like a UO hipster douchebag when I wear it, which I think makes me like it even more.

    @notwithit sounds like you need to put that beanie on and hang out in front of a UO until you find yourself a new GF. [​IMG]

    Sweet. I'm not quite old enough to appeal to recent college grads with daddy issues yet, but I'm getting there. Maybe if I hang out in front of the one on the Penn campus*; that'll give me a couple extra years of lead time.


    * Fun fact: It's only a few blocks away from the original location of the first ever Urban Outfitters store.

    hmm, well might have better luck hanging around their headquarters in the navy yard, they're all like 2 years out of design school down there. [​IMG]

    Nice. Are the Big Johns the tapered overdyes? I've been meaning to pick up a pair of those at some point. They look good here (although I'm always in favor of more sagging and breaking in, both of which come with time).

    Thanks. They are the slim tapered KURO2, so yes blue overdyed black if I understand properly.

    They are pretty crisp out of the box as you note.

    Yeah, the black --> blue --> white fading evolution sounds pretty rad.

    Random question: Do you have any good Epaulet suit fits? There was some discussion surrounding @StanleyVanBuren's suit fits, whether their cut fits his body type, and whether they yield good fits in general. I figure you wear a good amount of Epaulet, so you might have some insight and experience.
