I'm going to try the "Roaring Brook" crew that someone linked earlier next time I pass by an A&F but I'm not confident as everything I've tried on there so far makes me look like an old gay douchebag. I've even asked one of their SA just what they mean by "muscle fit" when I'm not even THAT muscular and my shoulders are nearly busting the seams of their XL. I also own a bunch of AA "2001" T-shirts and they're not as thick as the A&F polos I've tried on but they fit better. I'm 6', 42R, 33W and their L fits me very well post-shrink (there seems to be some variation in sizing depending on color; all my AA shirts are tagged L but for some reason the brown one is a bit tight on the shoulders and arms, white and black are spot-on). Costco Kirkland T's are excellent; very thick and durable. The only issue I have with them is that they are cut quite long (I guess for their intended use as undershirts) but 2" chopped off the hem of size M in grey heather and I'm golden. I never tried black, and white in L were too big, and M too small (post shrink). EDIT: Abercrombie & Fitch Roaring Brook crews are fail, at least for me. The material is thin and flimsy and the cut is very strange indeed -- in XL the shoulder seams run over my collarbones and curve toward my chest, the sleeve is cut too high (can see where my deltoids meet the biceps) yet the shirt is blousy from the mid-chest down through the torso. On a positive note, in gray and dark gray the moose logo is fairly innocuous. Unfortunately I left my phone in the car but I'll try to remember next time I pass by so I can get a fit pic up.
