    Just wondering what everyone's favorite t-shirts are(?) Mine are the white JM Skinz, American Apparel 50/50's (you can get 'em a size too small because there really long... so they're tight and still long enough), and the Underarmour t's.

    Andrew Christian makes very sexy tees to show off those muscles. I have the Andrew Christian Lion Deep V-neck and it does the trick icon_lol.gif

    Also, check out Zanerobe and Aussiebum tees.

    muchmorethanmuscle saidDon't get that really tight shit. That was over and done with in the 90's. Get something that fits your form, is not too long in the sleeves and not too long otherwise it looks frumpy.

    I have purchased the boxed Calvin Klein T-shirts that come in either black or white. They sell at Marshall's and Filene's once in a blue moon for about $8. You can buy them online at full price for $16.

    I can find the link if you want, just let me know.


    that tight shit is still going strong here

    Just wear something that fits well and doesn't look deliberate, or it will kill the charm.

    I wish there was a way to be fashionable without having to wear things that were either too tight or too small.

    Speaking as someone who's tall, and has broad shoulders, a lot of these tight clothing brands just simply don't fit on a guy like me. For me, it's impossible to find pants that aren't too tight around my thighs or crotch or teeshirts that actually fit well and look good. Instead I'm constantly stuck with basically overly baggy cargo pants (Which I kind of like, if only for the pocket utility, or tee shirts that literally fit fine the the shoulders in my upper half, but then billow away from the nipples down like some kind of overly-pleated summer dress.

    I've walked into places like American Eagle, and Abercrombie and literally been laughed out of the places by the salespeople when I asked if they had anything that would fit me, and when I do find some tight clothing that I actually like, it simply doesn't fit my frame.

    I like to think that I'm decently built, and, though I know that I still have a bit I could cut down on in the waist department, I do wish that there was some kind of clothing brand that could show off my shoulders, v shape, and frame, without looking like I stole it off of a passing 10 year old girl in a bizarre fashion heist.

    i like Alternative Apparel (AlternativeApparel.com) pima cotton shirts- just get a size larger than yours cause they shrink, and Armani Exchange tshirts- same deal with the shrinkage. Diesel makes great tshirts too- im mostly just picky about sleeves- i like them to be flush with my arms... its a huge pet peeve when they are loose and form those 'wings,' making me look even scrawnier.

    Muchmorethanmuscle....

    I wouldn't even have the slightest idea as to how to even go about that, man...

    Plus, I would assume that having a personal tailor would be kind of expensive. If I could, I probably might, though.

    Ah, people still shop at A/E? I'm amazed at how many people think Armani Exchange has anything to do with Armani - except for the name

    Try Patagonia's light weight baselayer. Nice clingy fit. Nice colors. Cooling weave. Subtle logo.
    Also Icebreaker ts. Pure Merino wool. I wear them year round. But then it never gets hot here and no humidity.
    I get compliments fron men and women. Check out their sites.

    American Apparel has great t-shirts... esp. the 50/50 blend... very form fitting, and also good if you're tall... they're extra long. tight and extra long is a good combination.

    Hurley, Lost, O'neil, Volcom, Famous, Fox, BIllabong, Kirra...they all have tighter arms and lean cut torsos.

    I always wear real loose and baggy, keeps people wondering, they see the big arms buldgin veins and wonder.....................what it looks like underneath. Mostly I wear them for comfort and don't really feel the need to show off what I have, I workout for my health and for me and the muscles are just a benefit of what I do for myself.

    Ruehl is Abercrombie. more grown up? is it because it's darker in there?

    Personally I like 2xist shirts fits well and shows off the arms and chest.

    American Apparel - Great overall fit

    Uniqlo - A Japanese brand that cuts the sleeve higher so your biceps bulge

    AmericanApparel makes nice stuff, but the shyt's overpriced (if you're paying retail value).

    There are lesser known designers (e.g., Vibi) that sell tops of similar quality for much less. I just got a hot pink deep V-neck fitted Vibi t-shirt--the extra short sleeves show off the biceps--on Sunday for $10 at a thrift store. It was brand new; it still had the price tag. (Some of these labels sell directly to chain thrift stores.) I went out on Sunday night, wearing it with a pair of white jeans. I received compliments from men and women.

    T-shirts that are tight all over are out of style. (The 90s are over, gentlemen!) A guy wearing a t-shirt like that looks as if he's trying to hard, I think--it just doesn't look comfortable if it isn't athletic gear. What's in style now--and what I think looks better--are t-shirts that hug the shoulders, chest, and arms, while leaving just a little room in the midsection. You still show off your muscles. But you look relaxed and sexy.
