I wouldn't say they fit small. TTS IMO.

It does look good, however, I've also seen the price and it's far too excessive just for a sweatshirt.

I noticed aprevious thread about MKI store. No, I'm not the owner. I just came across them from the Internet. I saw the pictured sweatshirt. Like the quality of the material, it is much better than most on the high street. Because it is different, I wanted to recommend it to others who may also be looking for something different.

You're quite right in that I have a fetish. It's not just sweatshirts. I like buying all kinds of clothes. For all occasions. Jeans, dark striped shirts, sometimes with a v neck, and of course, sweatshirts. I've got to the point where I'm stopping. I have no room, and I want something big like an ipad.

Had a Reigning Champ from UO and backed it, fit was shit and quality poor for the money. The UO version is not the same as the regular RC line, it was 50% poly and felt like it. Avoid.

The Carharrts are good for the money, size one up in Chase, fairly full cut in body.

I got a RC sweat from UO and its 91% cotton 9% polyester (elasticated cuffs etc) so not sure thats correct for the plain grey sweats at least.

This sweat link says:

'Inspired by athletic wear from the '40s and '50s, when sweats fit as if they were tailored for you'

I thought 40s and 50s wear was looser/boxier fitting?!

Blue Marlin made great negro leagues sweatshirts way back. vintage style, thick, heavy, fitted nice and huge. they still around?

edit: yikes just checked their page and they haven't changed for the better. they don't even do crewnecks anymore, just really bad looking track jacket/hoody things. anyway in the mid '90s they used to do great quality sweats, in black, burgundy, dark green and gray with negro leagues teams on them. A shop in Sydney used to get them in and sell them next to Japanese Evisu and Redwings, didn't look out of place. shame what they're doing now.
