Don't even think about coming at Anthony Murgio with any of that "relaxed fit" BS. It's skin tight or get the hell out.

Though U.S. officials didn’t connect the alleged criminal activities of Murgio and Aaron, the men were linked in the FBI’s October memo to the hack of the three financial institutions. Bloomberg News learned their identities earlier this year but held off reporting about them at the request of the FBI, which said the information would compromise the investigation. Upon learning that Murgio and Aaron were accused of crimes, a friend from Florida State expressed dismay at the alleged schemes. “That’s absurd,” said Bryan Ravit, a Phi Kappa Sigma brother of Murgio who lives in Winter Park, Florida. “They are very stand-up guys,” Ravit said in an interview. “I would trust them with my life.” [...] Named one of Tallahassee’s top 100 singles in 2010, Murgio listed his favorite outfit as “really tight jeans that I can hardly sit down in” and Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” as his favorite book.
