So I bought the Black/Smoke of these primarily because they were one of the least expensive polarized, not-too-flashy, good looking sunglasses on this site at the time.
THE GOOD: The glasses fit perfect. I'd say I have a medium to slightly above averaged sized head. If you have a LARGE head these probably aren't the glasses for you. Style is excellent, arrived just as pictured...no surprises. Build quality seems to be excellent as well. Glasses open, fold, wear, and just feel like a solid quality piece.
THE BAD: all the little white lettering on the inside of the glasses rubbed off literally during my first time wearing them. Not a big deal, I don't need to be reminded I'm wearing "Status" sunglasses. Lastly, and the only real concern of mine...I'm not convinced these lenses are actually polarized. All my previous glasses have been polarized, and these just don't seem to be exhibiting the typical features I'm use to. Glare doesn't appear to be reduced much (or at all when viewing water), and in general the lenses seem to just dim the world outside. My previous polarized lenses significantly reduced glare, and although they tinted the outside world they also seemed to sharpen everything.
I did some looking around online, and it appears Anarchy makes these status glasses in both polarized and "non-polarized" models. Other sites charge significantly more for the polarized model. I'm thinking perhaps these aren't actually polarized, or maybe I was sent a bum version on accident?
Either way, for the money they're still an okay deal...but given the choice I'd pay more to get a pair where the polarization is evident.
Shirt has a good quality feel to it. Not too thin, not too heavy. I'm 6'3-6'4, 185 lbs, and the XL fits me very well. Sleeve length is decent. Definitely a slim fit, but not tight...it's a loose slim fit; meaning its properly baggy like you'd a expect a sweatshirt to be.
Good quality long sleeve shirt. Not slim fit, so a bit baggy on me.
This shirt literally has the best slim fit cut I've seen yet. I'm 6'3-6'4 and 185lbs...and it's nearly impossible for me to find shirts with long enough sleeves that don't have an extra yard of material to cover someone else's beer-belly. This shirt does it perfectly. Sleeve length is awesome, and the slim fit cut is very similar to a euro cut in nice dress shirts. A Large fits me like a glove. The shirt feels tailored. If you're tall and skinny this is the shirt for you.
Quality is top-notch. Weight of shirt is pretty decent, feels extremely durable, and actually keeps you warm if you want it to.
The ONLY negative I can say (and it's not really a negative) is the shirt has these little shoulder straps...basically a 3.5in strip of cloth buttoned down on top of each shoulder. I DID NOT see these in the picture when I ordered, but they're there. Just a different style than I'm use to, but I dig them now.
I ordered this vest to compliment the pinstripe Volcom suit that it matches. Best decision ever. I ordered the same size as the suit (Large) and it fit perfectly. I'm 6'3 180lbs, and the suit/vest combo felt custom tailored. Check out the suit review for more detailed info.
If you already have the suit...or it's chilling in the shopping cart, you're going to want this...Do it...Do it...
This sweatshirt is pretty freakin' sweet. Gets looks, is heavy enough to keep you warm, and has a ton of crap to distract you when you're bored. But beware of two things. 1st: there's a little picture of a dude that looks a LOT like Hitler, in like 4 or 5 different spots on the shirt. 2nd: I ordered an XL and it fit perfect when it came. After a few washes and drys it's now a bit too small. I'm 6'3 and 180lbs and I wish I would have tried to get an XXL.
