Wings and horns sweatshirts fit slightly slim and short. Ive got a summer weight sweat in a large and I usually take a medium in other brands

There's usually measurements up on Haven's webstore for Wings & Horns gear and they have a pretty broad range so will probably have what you're looking for. I've almost always and to size up on W&H.

Does anyone have experience with Champion Reverse Weave sweatshirts?

Any good in terms of quality and fit?

Thanks

The older ones tend to be really wide and have loose sleeves, definitely a 'vintage' fit but they're solid and wear well. If you can find a slimmed down version (usually a collab, I have a Bape one which is much more fitted) then I think they're well worth it. I just got a couple of old US made ones for dirt cheap from a vintage fair which I'm going to get altered, mainly by slimming down the sleeves. The Todd Snyder ones are more fitted, I think?

Thanks Beedub, that's exactly what i was worried about.

Will look for collab ones, which i think are all Japan made, hence why slimmer than US ones. But i might be wrong…

Yeah I got one from the States a few years ago. Never wear it. It fits like something early 90's bodybuilders would wear.

I heard present will be stocking Champion soon too and maybe Size? (but I could be wrong about Size?).

Anto, the Todd Snyder ones are made in Canada.

couldn't find a more relevant thread..

bought a real mccoys sweat but it's too small, not sure the next size will do it either though. has anyone sized up 2 on them, or is a size up enough usually?

Not any help colours, but just for my own reference, is the size you got ridiculously small?

yeah looks tiny to me!

was expecting it to be slim as it's jap sizing, half expected to exchange, but worried the size up will be too small as well and 2 sizes up could be too big..

I've got the inventory collab one, not sure if it's the same as the standard but it's short and boxy.

I went one size up with my ballpark (xl) and fit was fine. It did shrink quite a bit when washed.
