Fellas, I am trying to decide if I should get the Baby Milo "friends" hoodie, I've never owned a Bape hoodie before (only shoes and jackets), but am wondering if the size is significantly different between a S and a M. The medium looks a little baggy to me. Thanks!

sz S when you're 5'5-5'7 and sz M when you're 5'7-6'

I guess it all depends on the type of look you want to have.

I prefer my hoodies to be roomy. I rock mine with a sweater or long sleeve.

I'm not big on the fitted look.


There is a noticable difference between the S and M.

like abso said its definitely a preference on what look your trying to get. small will be very fitted to your body...not meaning it wont fit but just look tighter as compared to the medium which is gunna be roomy as he mentiones. good luck

the biggest difference btwn the small and medium is the overall length - if you are over 5' 8" the hoody will probably end at your waist or higher...

sz S when you're 5'5-5'7 and sz M when you're 5'7-6'

really a medium is around that height? Are you really thin?

yea i agree with shawtiie, but i think it all depends on how broad your shoulders are and your overall weight.

um...what size t shirts do you wear? i'm shorter than you and rock a large bape tee...and it doesn't fit baggy.
i was trying to decide on whether or not to get a medium hoodie or a large, but from what i'm reading (ppl rocking small size hoodies when they're 6ft) i think i'd be better off copping a medium and seeing for myself.

Here's another question, how do the Bape & Milo sweatshirts fit? Are the sizing same as hoodies? I tried the Large on once at the BWS NYC and I thought I was wearing some dress. The length is ok but man it was so wide. Makes me think that the M can't be that much smaller...What do you guys think?

I always fight with this topic. I have both small hoods and medium. I like a tighter fit but i do like the length of a medium. I always end u with mediums because smalls are so hard to find. However all my bape tees are medium. I have long arms so i have to equal it out. im about 5'10 135. :p

I'm thin so while I am fairly tall I don't really have broad shoulders which I would assume is what helps bring your XL to a decent length.

Wow at 5'11 the L is really fitted and not baggy at all. At 5'7 I wonder if that's how the size S hoodie will fit me?

^When you full zip it, is there room for your face or is it tight on your face?

2) thats a hot hoody

I was wondering because I plan on buying a Chomper hoody and I want the length of the hoody to be similar like the pic above but I want to full zip it. So I'll have to buy a size bigger if I want room for my face when I full zip it?

No, the hoods are pretty big, I dont think size matters much, you will still be able to zip it up for the short time you want to

Also, I had a small hoody and a Medium, the small fit well before washing it, But once I washed my Medium it fit perfect, just a bit longer than the small

Im about 6" and a small is perfect. Like right past the belt.

what? lol.. ' is feet, " is inches. EVEN that, if you are 6', and u wear a S, u need to eat more. im a L, 5'7"-8"

Are you all starving from buying Bape. I'm 6'3" 230 and wear a XL. I can fit L no problem but the hoody is to short. It comes up to my belly button.

11-27-2006, 06:45 PM
prins, is that cuz of your belly or your hight?

im about the same hight as you im a slim build but not to thin...

I guess you like that cool "gangsta" look then, cos for your height your clothes should be a small or a medium, as i have said before its about shoulders and sleeves, not length, you wouldnt buy a suit size 42+ cos you would look like a clown.

I am 5'11'' and a buck 50 and i wear medium it is a perfect fit.

damn u guys like the hoodys small?? man. im only 5'6 and i wear a large. the sleeves are long but man, to me medium is too small on the back area...maybe its cuz i have broad shoulders and a large chest:D :D

keefboz
11-27-2006, 10:21 PM
sure you do buddy ;)

What people don't understand is Bape hoodies are made to the size of ones chest and shoulders, the length wont get too much longer with size, it will get wider and the sleeves will get slightly longer. I hate seeing little guys wearing XL hoodies, sure they can rock what they want, but they look like clown shoes.

i have wide shoulders, pretty athletic build... i just dont like loose clothes... not a fan of that bulge in the waist area

ok i'm 5'3 - 5'4....


im guessing small?

but smalls are hard to come by... if i wore a medium would it be at all like that red marky had on?

It depends on the hoody and the material. I normally wear a L, but the Camo shark and sta hoddy come up too big for me, so I gotta cop a M.
