A-fucking-men. I go to the shops head to toe in RM and look like the local bam half the time. But I like it and I’m comfortable and that’s all I give a shit about. Laughing out loud

A lot of expensive gear doesn't really look all that in a quick phone pic because you don't see the detail but IRL there's a bit more to it.

Definitely agree with the last point. Always think how something is photographed makes as much of an impression as the product itself.

I really like the uneven dyed visvim stuff. Course same as most stuff posted here (not just visvim) it’s not worth the money but should be a decent resell price so once you factor that in makes it slightly less painful.

I’ve a RM sweat that’s got a similar patina to the vis stuff. Much cheaper but it’s taken 10 years of wear to get there Laughing out loud


Visvim

That's what I have with Filmelange. Great for those below 6ft! Laughing out loud

This is closet thing they do to fitting me normally, in a 5.

How much do McCoy'sweats shrink? I've just bought a ballpark zip hoody and it's a perfect fit (has a little bit of room in it). Bit worried it'll be too small after a wash

My experience with ballpark has been that they don’t shrink that much. But then I do wash them on a very low temp.

I can barely get the ballpark sweat on now. Most likely down to me getting bigger in the last 10 years than shrinkage so sadly will be posting In classifieds at some point (PM if interested Eye-wink )

Arrived last week (soloist) still on the hunt for the sweat if anyone comes across it.

I got that off you. Fits me well - it's a large but more like a medium.

Very thick. Would like to pick up more.

I think I got my ballpark off of Seenmy. They do age well to be fair.

Do they come in different weights?

I think they do.

The current Ballpark sweats on the McCoy’s website are listed at 12oz but the “heavyweight” sweat pants (which, if you look at the pics on the site, have the ballpark label) are 14oz.
