Go and see this great blog if you need to understand how Urban clothing really works

Their website and blog gives some good sizing advice and a bit of a how to find your  urban style which I like.  See this urban style from New Orleans with Dog and urban chicken. >  Got to say it just seems right for men and the men seem to have that laidback urban attitude that really counts, love the hats on these guys I think they look better than the women.  The girls need more urban attitude mixed with style!
