Anyone got one of these 10oz versions?

Measurements seem generous and they say it fits TTS, but everyone seems to size-up in the Ball Park version, and the BP measurements on Superdenim are even smaller than the 10oz!

Do McCoys sweats usually have random white defective threads in the sweat weave, or have I just been really unlucky to have two from Superdenim with the same issue? Feel like a cunt returning another one, but it's a fucking £145 sweat. Clutching at straws but thought it might have summat to do with the loopwheeled fabric?

Haven't tried them yet but I reckon the Good Measure sweats will be great. The company was started by Carl from Original Store/Spiv and he knows what he's doing. All made in the UK too.

The 4 needle sweatshirt is definitely a size up job, can't speak for the hoody but I'd assume it's the same..

Cheers but I ended up going for the S. Could wear the M but it was pretty baggy in the chest. Preferred the fit of the S overall.

I'd be interested in a medium - do they actually fit like regular mediums or are they typically Japanese - i.e. and they're actually a small?

Yeah, I'd say comparable more to an OL or uniqlo small. I'm usually shit at giving sizing advice so i'll just stick the measurements up tomorrow

That sweat fits slim in the arms, short in the body, but standard in the chest. It's the classic boxy vintage fit.

I tried a size up. Arms were fine, body length was fine, but there was way too much spare material under the arms and down the sides of the body. I'd say go TTS or buy a different fitting sweat.

It's meant to be worn like this IMO:

@Fuzzy, I'm same height / chest as you, bought a Boxpark sweat in M & was pretty short in the body and tight fit. One wash and would have been too small so moved it on.

Prefer Reigning Champ heavywight sweats if you can track them down, same quality and better fit.

Cheers guys
Worried I was between two sizes also so might not bother.
Also can't figure out for the life of me difference between mccoys / joe mccoys/ ballpark sweats in terms of quality and sizing so may leave it.
Will see if I can track down RC but I also see on superdenim they do russel athletic archive loopwheel so may try that

The ball park shrink down so ended up buying large. Agree on Reigning Champ much flattering fit.

Ideally i would want the best of both worlds RM materials RC fit
