Plain well-fitting T-shirts

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm having trouble finding well fitting T-shirts. I'm fairly skinny about a 38" chest and small arms. What do you suggest in terms of T-shirts that stretch just a little bit to emphasize your muscles? Would American Apparel work? Any other brand suggestions? Thanks!

Yeah, really. We answered this question in several-page depth not too long ago.

American Apparel for a more fitted/stretchy t-shirt.

Gap Athletic fit for a more relaxed (but definitely not baggy) fit.

The Target line that has the 7% lycra in it. Only in white and black, though.

Gap stretch fit shirts are amazing. I own at least one of every color they offer. They're far better than the athletic fits and I actually like them more than Apparel.

I personally prefer Gap's athletic cut but will be trying out AA's shirts (finally moved to a place that has one nearby).

Do AA shirts tend to shrink significantly?

I think you need to have muscles before you can emphasize them.

One thing I've noticed since I've cut from being strong/muscular/puffy to weak/skinny/lean is that I have much better "muscle definition" due to low bodyfat. I'm 5'9", 145 lbs, and obviously weak like chicken, but I actually look more "muscular" than when I was much bigger and stronger. See also Brad Pitt in Fight Club, where he was 6'-whatever and 155 lbs.

I would have looked like shit in a very fitted t-shirt when I was bigger and stronger, but now I look so good it's scandalous.

I've just realised this and am putting some more effort into building muscle definition. I'm not willing to put in the effort to become strong, but I am to produce the appearance of muscle; one of the very few benefits of weighing 130lbs
