I have the 4th pair coming :>
Ya I did, It took about 3 days. Including drawing, measurements, cutting the wood, assembling, sanding, and then staining. It shouldn't have taken so long but I got rough sawn boards for free and most of them were warped and uneven and basically useless.
This is about as DIY as I get so bare with me...
I'm sure some people have this same problem... you find a brand of t-shirts that fits perfect, except the neck line is too tight. For me the Uniqlo dry packaged shirts fit me great, but they're just too tight in the neck. It seemed like a shame to have to start the search for perfect t-shirts all over again. I'd heard of some people in waywt cutting the necks out of shirts, but I didn't like how the raw hem around the neck looked. I just needed a hem around the neck, just a wider one.
The dry packaged shirts have a pretty thick hem; Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
(please excuse the photography, my phone made the shirt look yellowed)
I did this to two of my t-shirts. First attempt didn't go so well (explanation to follow). Second attempt was pretty much perfect. Instead of using Dry Packaged T-shirts, I used the premium cotton ones offered in the U.S. (I'm not sure these are available in the U.K. - they're not offered on the website and I was recently in London and didn't see them in store). Both of them have the same neck I think (or very similar at least).
I fucked up the first attempt because I over-thought it. Instead of just cutting out the ribbed neck part, I tried to use a seam ripper to completely remove it as well. I got the ribbed part out but also messed up some of the seams on my new hem. It looks OK, but kind of ragged and something that I may only wear for exercise in the future. The second time I kept things more simple and it turned out really well. I just cut as closely as possible without cutting the new hem. Looks like it was made that way while it's worn. If you very closely inspect the hem when it's not on anyone you can kind of tell it was cut but it's really completely unnoticeable otherwise.
I'd also recommend giving this a try if you think it looks good. I might take pics of the t-shirt I cut but I'm lazy and honestly it looks pretty much the same as the one max_r did (with an extra seam down the front middle).
Some sweatpants I slimmed down. Also just cut holes in the front of the waistband so I could pull the drawstring out. Trying to find a longer replacement for the std. drawstring

Thinking about putting epaulettes on an OCBD cus it's just barely long in the shoulders, but it still bothers me.
