That Rag & Bone jean suggestion caused a chain reaction that led me to some good finds, that I will investigate further. All I need to find now are some good t-shirts.

oh, wow.. any more suggestions for t-shirts?

Something that fits similar to this, but with longer sleeves (to my elbow, or so):

Buy larger tees and alter them.

Why? Because hardly anyone makes slim tees with sleeves to the elbow. As a matter of fact, slim tees with elbow-length sleeves look too much like sporting apparel.

just curious but why would you want a t-shirt to go all the way to your elbow?
that is not a good look esp. on someone as tall as you.

Enjoy.

The eternal question:

Selvage?

well, when I say down to my elbow, I mean longer than the length of the sleeve in the picture I just gave as an example. I looked around on google images at sleeve lengths, and this is about what I had in mind:



If that is what you said isn't a good look for me, then .. .. please advise

Something as short as the picture in the first example is pretty much out of the question, though.. is there a middle ground, or something like that?

that is how t-shirts are supposed to fit; there's no question about that. The dude in the picture you posted is wearing a t-shirt way too big for him. I have no idea why you consider mid-bicep sleeves "out of the question."

Culture has a bit to do with it.. I'd look weird wearing something with sleeves that short (I've experimented). I also rule out the bootcut jeans for the same reason, they just don't look right on me.

Here is another example.. since I've now been exposed as stylistically retarded:

That also looks perfect for me. Is that good? Where can I find some shirts with that fit and sleeve?

I'm browsing around that site, and I think I might get this one: http://www1.macys.com/catalog/produc...tegoryID=20647

As has been mentioned, what you are looking for is not the right fit. I am 5' 10" and 145lbs so I may look a bit like you in stature. When I was younger I used to wear clothes that were at least one size too large because I was uncomfortable with my how skinny I was. I now wear clothes that fit right (e.g. that t shirt in the first picture). It took a while for me to get used to it and now I will never buy clothes that do not fit properly. Slim fit is where it's at.

Funny thing is that my dress shirts from a few short years ago when I was the same height but about 10lbs lighter are bigger than my dress shirt size today

No, actually, you wouldn't look weird. You'd just look like you were wearing a properly fitted t-shirt.

Hi,

Are those two shirts I linked to in my last post fitted properly?

I fit properly into a large in the dressing room, but then they have this tendency to shrink out of size when I wash them the first time. By that I mean the sleeves get extra short, and the overall length of the t-shirt decreases, and the "taper" at the bottom of the shirt goes away, so it doesn't form-fit around the waist/butt region. How can I prevent this?

edit: the washing of large size shirts results in a noticeable flare. (just saw that word use in another thread).

No, both of the models are wearing shirts that do not fit them properly.

There are lots of examples of properly fitted tshirts in the following thread, IMO. And I'm not saying that just cuz I posted in it, hehe.
