I guess this was the response i was hoping for. After sifting through pages of the WAYWT Ive come to the conclusion that proper shirt fit is personal but since im new to the subject of style im naturely unsure. Some advocate the almost tight that your body buckles fit and others the looser fit where the shirt drapes around the body. It seems on sf that a looser fit almost means a coming of mature or older age. Other threads deal with what constitutes a perfect fit but they dont signify that a shirt fit is in truth truly personal and wheter the current need for tailored tight fit shirts are a fad brought on by ads and etc.

I apoligize for any grammatical errors, English is obviously not my first language.

Agree. The waist area looks absolutely painted on. With no stretch to the shirt, he won't be able to move his arms at all without pulling his shirt out.

Seems you'd have to have little to no chest definition to get a fit like that. And even then you wouldn't be able to move your arms much, which would, i suppose, make it possible for you to keep said physique. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

a good fit is somewhere between that rl model whose shirt is painted on his body, and that dead hollywood twink everyone seems to worship

This "look" is sickening and so end of last decade.

That fit only works with cotton/elastine mix shirts. I have a few 100% cotton shirts with that fit and I can't fucking move.

Not at all the same fit.

Good luck breathing and doing everyday activities, including driving.

James Dean or Heath Ledger? And what did either of them have to do with shirt fits?

Take out the "H" buckle and I don't see anything passé about it unless the frame of reference is strictly limited to the runway.

The newest in shirt technology, spray on shirts.

I couldn't actually do my job in that I think.
