""Model is 6'-1" and wearing a size Medium".... man FOH with that..."


  

          

THEY BE LYING!!

When shopping for clothes online most modern sites will provide this sort of information so you can get an idea of what size you need....they STAY misleading IMO....

For instance this....
https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-terrebonne-joggers/24540.html?dwvar_24540_color=SMDB&cgid=root&utm_source=em&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=100220_trail_running_bottoms

I'm 5'-10" 172 lbs and I haven't fit in a medium anything since 8th grade....

Why they be doing folks like that??

dawg I ordered some slim fit joggers based on that 'model is 6'1"' bullshxt and I had to give em to my daughter.

thass whut my old fat ass gets. I went to JcPenny and bought somne proper Champion sweats and left it ALONE.

**edit**

somehow my brother is 6'1" and the large worked for him; I'm 5'9" and it was a NAW

Not necessarily myself at all, but the clothes.
It's been way more helpful than any of this other shit.

I'm usually pretty stable in sizes...but sometimes even my go-to brands be changing up their cuts and throwing me off....

I know their line well but it was a last chance item with no returns. I just backed out of it, covid has me rethinking purchases. normally I would have just picked up the item and rocked with it and worn different ways if I went with the M or L. These days, I'm like, who the fuck is going to see me? I havent had a haircut since goddamn April.

I had a 2 week, out of state training program coming up and I waited until the last minute to cop new business casual digs...that's on ME....

But...Bonobos came up on my feed (thanks to The Algorithm) and I was like "Bet...this is right up my alley!"
I.WENT.IN! Copped EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK for the Weekday Warrior line..
Even sprung for expedited shipping....

Dawg...
NONE of them joints fit right...
NADA...

look at this cat!!

"Model is 6'2" with a 32" waist, and is wearing a 32x32 in Slim Fit"

GTFOH! How he 6' 2" wearing a 32" inseam and STILL got a break on his loafers like that????!!??

Since i'm only 5' 10", I ordered 30" inseams off the strength of that alone....

ALL them shits were flooding....on top of the fact that my thighs were trying to bust the fck out of them shits....

never. again.

and functionality....
I don't buy it for fashion.
I buy it for function.
$89 isn't cheap, no....but if I were to spend $89 on them, I would have utmost confidence in their durability and value....
With that said....I never pay full price for clothing.

With the occasional S thrown in. I'm 6'6" 200.

I can find pants but long sleeves are usually like an inch or two too short. My waist is a 32, so even with working out I'm still a skinny dude with muscles.

In response to Reply # 14


  

          

A lot of brands if I buy a large It fits well everywhere....except for when I raise my arms up at all and then I’m looking like an early 90s Miami Hurricane player with my whole stomach showing. So I go XL - which is generally too big.

Some companies do have the Large with extra length option though, which works way better than an XL for me.
