Two years ago I had to buy a Large in almost everything Jordan for it to be just a lil bit loose. Now if I want the same look I gotta go for a Small almost which I have yet to see most things smaller than a Medium in over 6 months. (I'm also bigger than I was two years ago) No hoody's come smaller than a Large which woulda been 2XL two years ago. I don't get it. Anybody got an explanation?

their clothes are geared towards the urban market, i.e. hiphop listening, baggy clothes wearing people.

That's what I hate about JB clothes, especially when it comes to jackets. I can fit in JB tee's in size small or medium but when it comes to jackets, a size small fits like a large. JB would get plenty of my money if they just made their jackets fit better, better meaning smaller.

This all started with the L' Style Altitude XIII's in February 2005. My LARGE Altitude XIII t-shirt goes to my knees. And my Size 34 Altitude XIII jeans fit me still, even though now I'm a 38. I used to be a 32 two years ago...hahaha. TIME FOR THE WORKOUT PLAN...

Could it be maybe because they shrink after the first wash?

Cuz some of mine certainly do...

i personally like the way Enyce has their tees. they have them somewhat long but not wide as hell like jordan. and the sleeves are long w/out all that damn room in the arm pits like jb. jb needs to redo the diminsions of their tees. but they recently just got alot bigger. for the past year and a half i've bought XXXL shirts and they fit fine, but i just got like 3 shirts for the aquas in XXXL and they are ridiculously big. so now im skeptical on wut sizes i need to cop. i dont no if the shirt will run the "normal" way or the huge way. and btw, the clothes for the new 8s SUCK!!!!!

Ive never understood this either. And its always the Small and Med. that sells out fast. XL and 2x hit the sale rack. (generaly)

because they are made for poseurs and members of the whig party. I haven't bought a jb shirt/jacket anything in well over 7 years, the first year they had small and xs and the small actually fit, recently they got rid of the small altogether except for some t-shirts and just go for jc penny style fit... big and ugly and not form fitting in anyway. I think to wear jb stuff you have to one of 3 things, baller, member of the whig party, or fat as hell.

i quit buying JB clothin a while ago. but i did pick up a Lebron shirt over the summer and that shirt ran HUGE. i normally get XL shirts but i comfortably fit a M in Nike Lebron shirts. they should fix it because their clothing is not proportioned well for the "average" consumer

This thread is meant for me...I hate all JB clothing because of the sizing. There are a couple of jackets and hoodies i want but i cant buy em cuz they are meant for nba size people. honestly what is the point of coming out with so much clothes in like xxl-xxxxl? Those are all the sizes i usually see when i go to like footlocker or footaction. Even the rare size L that i might find are two sizes too big. Think about your loyal asian fans jb!! make smaller clothes!!
