I've also got each in large. The Buzz definitely fits me better and is slightly longer. McCoy's is on the short side.

I've had about 5 OL sweats as well. Buzz is far superior.

I seem to be between sizes on them as well, Large too long but medium restrictive with a shirt under. Same problem with RC.

Mccoys have several versions with different fits… Which one are you referring to?

The Strike Gold are the best sweats i've ever had. Beware of shrinkage though.

I've got the ball park ones on real McCoy. Heard great things about strike gold, but even shorter than mccoys

I'm 5'11" 83kgs and the large is a good fit for me - hope that helps.

The Strike Gold ones look nice, but when I had a feel of the material in a shop, they weren't quite as substantial as I'd thought they'd be.

The Reigning Champ sweats are TTS in my opinion.

Also, I got some sweats from American Giant and they're really nice quality. The fit of the hooded sweat is athletic and tailored, whereas the other two I got are pretty baggy and about a size larger than the hooded one. The material is very thick. It's my go to sweat now. The cut and quality aren't quite as good as Reigning Champ, though the American Giant ones are less than half the price of them. You pay $30 postage and there is no customs or VAT to pay at all after that. I'll sell the full zip Moto sweatshirt I ordered for £30 should anyone be interested. Sized as a Medium but fits as an XL I think.
