so as i've been growing older, i notised myself going away from wearing 3 2XL t-shirts that go down pretty low on daily bases. I mean, i rock large stuff all the time when im skiing, but when i go out or even just go to school, i purchase tees and dress shirts that have the fashion(slim) fit.
As some of you may know, i already make some clothing that is ski-related and its huge.... the hoodies are enormous. I wanted to hear your opinion on what you guys think about fitted stuff?

I had a dream last night that I was friends with Ellen Degeneras. I talked to her when she was jogging by and we were standing in snow... I had no skis on... I was walking. Then some lady stopped in her car, took a picture then drove off. God help me.- Skiierman
i hate huge shirts, for some reason i'm so uncomfortable in them. i like shirts that fit my well and aren't hanging off my like a poncho, so i like shirts that "hug me". but not too tight, because that's uncomfortable and emo.

personally i don't like slim fit because of the sleeves. they make my arms look really lanky and awkward, and i don't have much to show off in the arm region anyway. i never wear anything huge baggy except maybe skating, so usually an xl or if they're from champs or footlocker, 2xl but was them first. i'm like 5'10" 175, and xl's are usually what fit perfect for me.

regular fit. go smaller when u want a slim fit and larger when u want a bigger fit. fabric is important too... like your normal 100% cotton t-shirt and your occasional vintage wash t-shirts might fit in different ways.

im about 5'9 135 lbs i normally wear anything from m-xl really depends on the brand though
You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours!-JEA
i cant stand huge clothes. ever since like my senior year in hs, ive really gotten away from the big look. im 21 now, 5'10", 155-60 lbs. depending on the shirt, i wear a small or medium. i agree with a size that fits between the two, thatd be great. even in skiing, i try to stay away from huge fitting stuff. tall Ts, DEFINATLY not, those would look horrible in a small fit, theyd grab weird around your midsection. besides, its nice to show off your belt

i want to create a series of tees or even shirts that are more fashionable. Directed towards older population of skiers who go to clubs and bars and parties with a dress code... not house parties because someone's parents left, or underage kids. I want them to be able to wear a merchandise from a skiing-based company and pick up dressed up ladies at the same time.
The NS skiers average age is growing. People who i've been talking to 3 years ago are in their 20's now and dont find being shot or acting gangster on the streets cool anymore. Im not trying to create a product for kids that rip the hills apart here.
Huge polos with sleeves going down to the elbows and condom beanies aren't "hot" stuff to wear, unless you live in whistler village, where ski/board fashion is on 365 days a year.
its so funny you mention that, cause i grew up in whistler and shit but yknow have experianced stuff outside the bubble and like, going out in the city or whatever, showing up with a toque, long hair, skinny jeans and an xl tshirt, maybe a bandana, people are like what the FUCK are you wearing? then i get home and its no big deal
"lol im fuckin kiding stfu before i feed you my children"
It's nice to see that you have taken on the chore of defining what's "hot" and whats not. I find it hard to see though, that if you're trying to create a line of clothes that is suitable for bar hopping, or clubbing when in reality, a good deal of us spend a fraction of our week actually doing so. It's ironic that you say that huge polos with sleeves going to the elbows and condom beanies are only suitable in a place like whistler where ski or board fashion is a year round thing, because at the same time, you're plugging a line of clothes that would see very little day to day use. If I go out to clubs, I will dress up, and it will absolutely be in clothes that I hope would portray a classy image, but I'm not going to dress like a metro when I go get lunch with my friends, just like I wouldn't dress like a thug when going to a club. If you want to make some money, put some variation in your clothin line.
he's not saying "metro is in" by any means, but i certainly spend a great amount of time in bars (i'm a bar tender at a busy night club) and i absolutely hate going to guess or express and dropping tons of $$ on clothes that look good while i'm working, when i'm just chillin out to lunch with some of my boys i still wear the same style i find the more time i spend out at night, the more i regularly throw that style into my daily life, but i'd be sick to see i8van come out with some sick night club/slim fit clothes, because wearing a tee down to my knees was never my thing and i think anyone who is white and does that on the streets looks like a fucking idiot
It would be great if he came out with some of that shit, but all I'm saying is, if he wants my support, he should continue making clothes in a large/ tall size because not everyone is your standard 5'10. I'm 6'2 and skinny as fuck, and it's annoying to have to limit what I buy to what fits me, because in terms of fashion, which is something I don't overly pay attention to, I am stymied.
Why would I spend 25 dollars on a t shirt that i'm sure 100 other people have, or 60 bucks on a hoodie that half of newschoolers owns, when i can spend 20 dollars on a few tall tees, and have something printed on them that will be unique. When you get some variation, and some more product i8van, i'll be behind you, but until then, footlocker has you in check.
you have a point there about the variety of stuff... but i need lots of $$$ to plug all the holes in, u know. So im trying to plug some that havent really been notised yet by any companies out there...
I wouldnt say im trying to create a line JUST for clubs. that would be a luxury line... like cristian augudier stuff. I want to create ski-related or ski-inspired clothing that can be worn in a big city fashion scene.
I am basing this all on my experience, so please, if you have opinions on this issue, feel free to express it.
I notised how all my friends get ski/board clothing in baggy sizes. Even my t-shirts... when the usual clothing they wear is much smaller and fitted.
i dunno, holden has some pretty sick street wear out there, some sick hoodies that are slim fit, but they're expensive, like 90 bucks, but i can't say i haven't paid more for a hoodie than that, i'd tell you to take some fits from h&m or express or guess, and then throw a skiing twist on it, that'd be pretty sick
I would be all over fitted ski themed clothing in the medium range, especially tight hoodies. I'm 6'2" and 160lb. The only type of shirt I would balk at is a polo. They're just the type of shirt that works best with established brands.
I like my women like I like my scotch: 18 years old and mixed up in coke!
seriously i don't think there is anyone on this site that would like to see this happen as much as me, but holden's entire line is basically slim fit, from their outerwear to their street wear, but i'm talkin take some slim fit cuts, and throw your twist on them, make it your own
i hate buying t-shirts that are a little longer and then they are wide as hell and it makes me look like a fatty. i like t's that are a little longer but narrow so they dont bulge out and theres a whole bunch of excess fabric. slim fit would def be a good idea
