This!

my navy ballpark is my longest serving sweat. The fade to purple is awesome. I always wanted the olive version but they haven’t made those for ages as far as I know. Not even sure which sweat version came in that colour. 

Ive got one Gav, the olive version is the 'RMC Military' sweat, it's bombproof, only probs.. i don't think you would find one to fit, all of my JMC B-parks are a med, my RMC Mill is a size lg and it's smaller than the mediums.

@Double 0 Soul @wmb 

Cheers gents for the info

What temp did you wash? Wondering if cold v warm?

I washed mine at 40°C but given the choice i would like it to shrink a little but im reluctant to up the temp and cause unnecessary fading. 

They do fit like a sack of potatoes, but saying that... they are meant to.

Keen for no shrinkage on mine as I wear it over other jackets a lot and, when I don't, I do like the extra space

Can you offer us any assurances Ed or are we just taking your word for it?..

Appologies for the scepticism but i remember weighing up my N1 purchase in this very thread...folks convinced me that RMC was much better quality than BR therefor worth the extra £££ and S&S claimed last year that we need not worry about the cotton thread holding the jeans together "they won't explode after 3 months" but that was clearly not the case and we def do need to worry if we're to splurge big bucks on jeans that start falling to pieces months later.

Washed warm in a machine and dried in a dryer, but I was looking to shrink it a bit.  It still is roomy, which is not something I can say about any of my other RMC jackets or shirts...

Thanks wmb, you probably got the shrinkage because of the dryer, we don't have one, we're a nation of washing line owners.

@goodrain yeah pretty sure it is. I got this from the temporary RMC set up within Clutch in London. The S&S photo does look contrasty compared to the reality which is quite uniform.

Interestingly, Clutch Cafe seems to have an authentic example available for sale now:

Yeah agree - only thing is they are long (assuming they got the measurements right)

Think it might be  a tuck under ribbed waist as opposed to the ballpark sweats

The email they sent announcing the new site was very specific in mentioning that 'any' second hand sites selling RMC were not affiliated. Meaning Markkt is now run by seperate people or RMC  have asked them to be explicit it is a seperate business

Yeah Markkt is separately run now. McCoys took over the London operations.

Btw Lost & Found are selling that s/s sweatshirt - only better priced 

https://shoplostfound.com/collections/the-real-mccoys/products/the-real-mccoy-s-mc20005-sweatshirt-s-s-charcoal

 

Yeah I've noticed while the RMC UK store was offline it was cheaper for me to buy my RMC from Fransboone in Holland and pay for shipping than it was to get the tube in to town from my part of London and buy it from the outpost at Clutch Cafe. 

Nice to see the new online shop open and purchased a couple of items myself but they certainly do like charging us in the UK the most for their products.

Yeah RMC certainly control the pricing and make sure the premium pricing is maintained

One of the most overpriced brands in my opinion and I have virtually no interest in any of their stuff. I have one Joe McCoys shirt I bought from Japan for a reasonable price some years ago though.
