Good fit t-shirts for someone in between small and medium?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I was wondering what brands have good fitting t-shirts that would fit someone who isnt a small but not quite a medium. I seem to always have trouble buying shirts because their either to small or too big..

Yeah I have this problem too because I a chest but a relatively short torso. For blanks, I've found Urban Outfitter's BDG t-shirts to fit pretty much perfectly. I have some older Gap "athletic fit" t-shirts that I got a small in that fit pretty well as well. BDGs are really comfortable though and have held up extremely well despite numerous washings, dryings, stretchings, etc.

Lucky you. Mine develop holes in the necks. Check out 2xist. They fit great.

I'm normally between a medium and a large, and American Apparel L fits just how I like. Dunno if it's analogous for other sizes though.

Our own Michael J Krell offers long-sleeve and v-neck short-sleeve t-shirts in suit sizes (34 - 44).
He can even adjust the length if you wish.

I'm the exact same size. I'm guessing you need about a 19.25-19.75" chest in your tshirts.
Michael J krell fits that need.

Also, urban outfitters bdg 50/50 polycotton shirts are soft and the medium is about a 19.5-19.75" chest and fits slim. Like cldpsu said, the do sometimes develop neck holes as i have 2 of them and 1 of shirts has it. However, i really don't care that much. It's not noticeable at all to the eye or feel. I can only tell if i stick my finger there.
American Apparel shirts after you wash them fit in between small and medium too because those shirts shrink a bunch. The medium is normally a bit too big but the wash makes it shrink half a size. The small is normally too tight though, especially after the wash. The AA 50/50 shirts however fit slightly different and i seem to wear a small in those.

I've also found gap athletic fit size small to fit like a slim medium as well and the length is fine and i'm 6'- 6'1".

Most designer brands like dior homme and some other will have their mediums fit slim to work well with that in between size.




With that sizing i find that i'm pretty much always a size small in mall brands and a small in outerwear and jackets. Maybe i have narrow shoulders or something, but even in brands that i'm a medium in tshirts, i still need a small in jackets or button up shirts. H&M is like that for me. I'm a medium in their tshirts, but i have a westerny button down shirt where a small is better.

I believe these are called "schmedium" shirts. I only wear large and xtra-larges.

I have the exact same problem.
What i do is i buy a medium shirt,
then i shrink it.
(wash it in extremely hot water in the washer, then throw it in the dryer on a really high temp.)
=D
Then my shirts are perfect!!

I usually prefer about 18.5" - 19" in the chest, but the tees that go by this measurement usually have too large a waist size for my liking (this includes sz M in MJK, Alt Ap, No Sweat). So I stick with small AAs and deal with the chest tightness. Also, stretching the "pit-to-pit" after you remove the shirts from the wash might help a bit-- I've been doing this lately, but the effect could be entirely psychological.

I'm going to revitalize this thread really quick, five years later. It's getting hot out. I've been avoiding t-shirts for this reason, but maybe someone has a good brand to recommend right now. Either a size medium that's a little short in length or a size small that runs a little big but isn't a full-cut mess.
