    Just bought 2 size medium tees today from pacsun. mom says i shoud exchange em for large cus the sleeves on the mediums go like 2 inches above my elbows. and there's that whole washer-shrink thing to take into account.

    what do you guys think? and how do you guys determine what's the right fit for t-shirts? icon_biggrin.gif

    If the t-shirt can be mistaken for an Under Armour compression shirt, then it's too small! icon_lol.gif

    2 inches above the elbows is too small?!

    I love my athletic fit tees where the sleeves don't even cover half my upper arm

    Don't look at the sleeves. Rather look at shirt fit from the shoulders.

    If it goes over your shoulders, its too big . Vice versa f its at least three to four cm before the shoulders, then it will be too small.

    The best fit is when it hits directly at the shoulders. To and fro a cm is generally acceptable.

    The collective gay community likes to buy shirts 2 sizes too small. I used to, then I said fuck it I will no longer feel like a wrapped sausage.

    As long as you still taste like a wrapped sausage, that's all that matters.

    I am five foot, seven inches tall and I weigh between 230-235. Therefore, I wear a toddler sized tee. Like a 3T-4T. Fits great!!

    If you can't see your veins and abs through the fabric, its too big.

    The answer to this question clearly depends on your body type. You don't want to look like the only gay in the village.

    This is what you're supposed to do with shirts that are too tight:

    to the OP: you are wayyyyyy too old to be asking/receving/listening to Mom for fashion advice.


    that's why WE are here.
