post #103201 of 109053
I'm 5'9, 200 lbs and have 15-16 inches biceps, so in my world I'm not big, but the arms on most shirts are riiiiiight on the limit.

I got a newsletter from Albam the other day saying "introducing the new even slimmer ..... shirt" and I'm first thought was who are these people, who can fit into these shirts, the ones I have are plenty slim.


I'm seriously contemplating going bespoke, the next time one of the HK tailors are in town.

Just wear a poncho. I hear West America makes some good ones.

I'm thinking about channeling my inner DB and replacing all shirts with polos with extra starch in the collar.

If you wear a large don't you need to have all your shirts tailored when it comes to length at that height/weight? I feel like I have to at the same height and I'm only 160-165 lbs (about 15" biceps as well though).

But then then question is will you get a real poncho, I mean a Mexican poncho or just a Sears poncho?

I emailed the company about sizing on the crew neck relaxed tees. They sent me back a size chart. Chest is 47.6" and length is 31.2" on XL.

 

 

 

 

Thanks man, that's super helpful.

Which brands do you buy? I feel like the sleeves are often too long for even a medium.

But of course.

Oh, that explains it. I wish I had monkey arms so Norse shirts would fit me, though. Instead I have quite short arms :/

You are pretty big.  I mean, not huge, but for faashunz, pretty yoked.  I have never measured, and it appears that I have 13.5-14.5 biceps, and I am both taller and lighter than you, and a pretty straight up size 40US/50EU these days.  In EU sizing convention, I am an L, though a M in US sizing.  Whether you like it or not, you are an XL,
